Vegan Challah Bread

Yields 1 loaf

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon ground flax

  • 2 cups plus 3 tablespoons very warm water

  • 5 teaspoons yeast

  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar, divided

  • 1 tablespoon salt

  • 5 to 7 cups all-purpose flour, divided

  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil


Directions:

  1. In a small bowl, mix together flax and 3 tablespoons water. Set aside.

  2. In a large bowl, combine 2 cups water with yeast and 1 tablespoon sugar. Set aside for 5 to 7 minutes until the yeast gets bubbly.

  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together remaining sugar, salt and 2 cups flour. Add flour mixture to the yeast mixture and stir to combine.

  4. Add flax mixture, oil, and 3 cups flour, continuing to mix until mixture forms a tacky dough. Add more flour if dough is wet or sticky.

  5. Dump dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead for a few minutes.

  6. Oil a large bowl and place dough in the bowl, turning to coat. Cover bowl and set it aside in a warm, draft-free place. Let dough rise for 1 hour.

  7. Use your fist to punch the dough down. Dump onto the lightly floured surface and knead for a few minutes.

  8. Divide the dough in half and split each half into three even portions. Roll portions into long even ropes. Make 2 braided loaves, 3 strands per loaf.

  9. Transfer loaves to a baking sheet lined with parchment. Allow dough to rise for 1 hour.

  10. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

  11. Bake for 20 minutes or until bread is baked through and lightly browned.

  12. Let bread cool slightly before serving.
