Recipe type: Bread
Cuisine: German
Serves: 8
  • 2 cups flour
  • ⅔ cup warm water
  • 2 tsp active dry yeast (7g)
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 1 tsp cane sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ¼ cup baking soda
  • 5 cups water
  1. In a small bowl combine the warm water, sugar and the yeast. Stir to combine and let sit for few minutes until foamy.
  2. In another big bowl combine the flour with the salt. Add the coconut oil and the yeast mixture.
  3. Combine and knead with your hands for about 5 minutes until a dough is formed.
  4. Put back in the bowl and let it sit until it doubles in size for about 30 minutes to an hour, covered with a towel.
  5. Preheat oven to 200 C.
  6. Take the dough out on a clean work surface. Separate the dough into 8 pieces and roll each one into thick "ropes". Twist the ropes into pretzel shapes, securing both ends on the base of the pretzel.
  7. Bring 5 cups of water to boil and add the soda.
  8. Turn the heat to low and put every pretzel in the soda water for at least 30 seconds.
  9. Place all the pretzels on a baking sheet and drizzle with sea salt.
  10. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
  11. Enjoy with vegan soft “cheese” and veggies.
