A vegan diet is highly disciplined and does not include the consumption of any meat or any-sourced food. This includes things like mike, cheese, but and eggs. This vegan bread recipe does not use any of those ingredients but it produces a soft and flavorful loaf of bread. It’s easy to make in your bread machine with great results while satisfying the needs of a vegan diet.

INGREDIENTS:
 1 3⁄4 cups hot water (about 110° F.)
 1 1⁄2 teaspoons salt
 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
 4 cups unbleached flour
 2 1/4 teaspoon active dry yeast
DIRECTIONS:
1

Place all the ingredients in the bread pan and select basic white course for a 2-pound loaf and medium crust.

    Hi

    I have just tried this but had to halve the ingredients as I’ve only got a small bread maker. It has come out a bit flat and like a ciabatta in nature so heavy and doughing (although it tastes OK).

    Would adding sugar help it be more fluffy and light?

    Thank you

    I use bread flour with my breadmaker. Would it be the same quantity?

    I’ll sorry, quick question. Why doesn’t your recipe have sugar?

    All the other bread recipe have sugar. Even though it is not required it helps the yeast rise.

      You are correct, Leah. Sugar does help yeast to rise. I consulted with some vegan chefs for this recipe and they said they don’t use sugar in any of their recipes. They tend to be fairly strict about ingredients. You could add a teaspoon of sugar if you like or a tsp. of honey or agave nectar if you want to keep it natural. The recipe works without sugar (I tested it), but if you don’t have an issue with sugar, it’s fine to add it.

      Hi there. I have about substituting instant yeast with active. Do I need to adjust the amount of water if I use instant yeast?

        No need to add more water. Just substitute and proceed.

    Wondering if a gluten free alternative would work?

    Can you use gluten free options for the flour?

    • Reply
      Steve Nubie June 8, 2020 at 12:25 pm

      Yes but you may have better success if you use a blend of gluten free flours rather than just one kind. For example, 2 cups of rice flour and 1 cup of buckwheat flour and 1 cup of amaranth flour. I’ve found that gluten free flour blends give a better result. You also might want to proof the yeast by letting it sit in the bread pan with the hot water, yeast and a tsp of honey and a 1/4 cup of your gluten free flour. That will give the yeast a head start and you may get a better rise.
      Hope that helps.

    Can I substitute whole wheat flour in this recipe?

    • Reply

      Hi,

      Yes you can. For a better rise make sure you put 1 teaspoon of gluten per cup of whole wheat flour.

    I have tried this recipe six times and none have been successful. I changed the measuring tools to make sure they were correct and I even bought a new bread machine because I thought that might be the problem. No matter what I do the bread just does not come out correctly. It does not rise all the way, the center is thick and not eatable, and even on dark the top is just bland.
    What am I doing wrong?

      Also is your yeast fresh, instant yeast and do you keep it in the refrigerator after opening as you should.

      Make sure your wet ingredients are on the bottom, then dry and yeast on the very top!
      Not convinced as to why the water temp would make any difference at all as it does not for any other white bread I have made in the bread maker.

      The temp of the water makes all the difference…Excellent simple recipe…Thanks for sharing!

      Hi,

      I’m sorry it didn’t work out for you. Not sure why though. This is a very basic bread recipe – all you need is to follow the ingredients and directions and that’s it 🙂

        Is there a reason no sugar? Is that correct?

        • Steve Nubie June 8, 2020 at 12:27 pm

          We consulted with vegan chefs and they all say “no” to sugar. You could try a tsp of honey or agave nectar if you want to keep it natural or just add a tsp of sugar but don’t tell our vegan experts.
