** makes 10-12 biscuits
2 tsp tomato paste
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
2 C all-purpose flour
3 tbsp nutritional yeast
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp sea salt
5 tbsp cold coconut oil
3 tbsp snipped chives
1/4 C all-purpose flour (for rolling out biscuits)
NOTE: you can also add in a vegan cheese product, like chunks or shreds for extra flavour. Fold this into the dry ingredients at the same time as you add the liquid ingredients.
In a mixing bowl combine Silk unsweetened almond with tomato paste, lemon juice, and apple cider vinegar. Let it sit while you combine the dry ingredients in a separate bowl.
In another bowl combine all-purpose flour with nutritional yeast, baking powder, baking soda, garlic powder, and sea salt.
Take chunks of the cold coconut oil and place it in the flour mixture. Blend it with a pastry blender until it forms a crumb like mixture.
Create a well in the middle of the dry ingredients and pour the liquid ingredients into it. Then gently fold the batter a few times until it just comes together but isn't fully mixed. Add snipped chives and then fold the dough a few more times until it comes off the sides of the bowl.
Flour a clean dry surface with extra all-purpose flour. Place the ball of dough on the floured surface and lightly flour your hands so it doesn't stick. Flatten the dough slightly until it's approx. 8"-10" wide and 1-1 1/2" thick.
Lightly flour a 2"-2 1/2" round cookie cutter and cut as many biscuits out as you can. Place them on a lightly oiled baking sheet (use a little coconut oil on the baking sheet).
Try not to handle the dough too much, but create another smaller round of dough and cut out more biscuits. Depending on the size of your cookie cutter you will get 10-12 biscuits total.
Bake in a pre-heated 450 F oven for 10 minutes.
Serve warm with vegan butter and/or our vegan gravy!
