Easy Vegan Croissants

Easy Vegan Croissants

We LOVE French croissants. Pain au chocolat, pain au raisin, pain au anything is a-ok with us, frankly. It's one of the top three things we miss about being non-vegan. But luckily for us, we've teamed up with Alexis Gauthier, the “green-fingered vegetable magician” from plant-based Mecca Gauthier Soho to bring you the answer to all your pastry yearnings. This is an easy, super-quick recipe that “turns out as an amazing vegan alternative to the usually industrial-over buttered croissant." according to the man himself. Well said, Alexis.

Ingredients
Method

Ingredients

  • 500g white flour
  • 10g table salt
  • 50g caster sugar
  • 125g dairy-free butter / vegan spread
  • 125g plant-based yoghurt (e.g. soy yoghurt)
  • 125g plant-based milk (e.g. soy milk)
  • 25g fresh yeast (diluted first for 5 mins in 20ml of soy milk)

To make the glaze

  • 100ml soy milk
  • 100ml maple syrup

Equipment

  • Mixing bowl
  • Standard mixer
  • Pastry brush
  • Baking parchment

Method

  1. 1.

    Preheat oven to 180

  2. 2.

    Put the flour, table salt, sugar, yogurt, vegan spread, soya milk in the bowl of a stand mixer.

  3. 3.

    Start the mixer at speed 2 or 3, making sure that all the ingredients get mixed nicely together. After 3 minutes at speed 2 to 3, add the yeast and spin for another 3 minutes.

  4. 4.

    You might have to add a couple of extra spoons of white flour so that the dough gets a perfect elastic texture. Not too wet and not too dry.

  5. 5.

    Let the dough rest for 2 hours.

  6. 6.

    Pin-roll the dough to about 5mm thick.

  7. 7.

    Cut triangles and start rolling them into croissant shapes.

  8. 8.

    Brush them with the soya-maple mix and place them on a tray lined with baking parchment.

  9. 9.

    Bake for 10 minutes (depending on the size of the croissants). Remove when they're golden brown.
