Gourmet Veggie Bagel
1½ cups warm water (110℉)
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp dry active yeast
½ cup dehydrated mixed vegetables
4 cups flour
2 tsp salt
2 quarts water
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp white sugar
Dissolve brown sugar and yeast in warm water. Set aside for 7 minutes until yeast blooms (forms a foam on top).
Place dried vegetables in a mini chopper or blender. Pulse a few times to break up any large pieces. Place vegetables, flour and salt in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook.
When yeast has bloomed, add it to the four mixture. Knead on medium-low speed for 10 minutes or until dough begins to make a slapping sound against the side of the bowl. Move dough to a greased bowl, cover and let rise for 90 minutes or until it has doubled.
Remove the dough from the bowl and shape it into 8 balls. Cover and let it rest for 30 minutes.
While the dough is resting bring water to a rolling boil in a wide diameter pan. Add brown sugar and white sugar.
Preheat oven to 425℉.
Use your finger to poke a hole in the middle of each dough ball and gently stretch so that hole is 2” in diameter and the bagel itself is 4” in diameter. Place each bagel on a lightly greased surface or parchment paper.
Lower bagels into boiling water using a slotted spoon, being careful not to crowd them. Simmer gently for 2 minutes, then carefully flip them over and simmer for another minute. Remove with the slotted spoon and move to a lightly greased or parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Repeat with remaining bagels.
Bake bagels for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown and has an internal temp of 190℉. Flip bagels after 15 minutes.
Yield: 8 bagels, 230 calories per bagel
Hack: Bagels can be stored at room temperature for 3-4 days or frozen for up to 6 months.

Thank you, this recipe looks so yummy! I also love your images and the fact that you get straight to the recipe, I’m tired of having to scroll through someone’s post for ages to find it! I will definitely be making these bagels. Well done, I love this website and have bookmarked 🙂
Thank you for your comments. I also hate to scroll through someone’s hopes, dreams and childhood memories to find the actual recipe. I get that some people find the backstory to be interesting but I just want the recipe!
Great, as always. Another nice recipe. Thank you very much! This one has all the right moves. For more calories and the “good kind” of fat add sliced avocado or hummus! Ahh, it gives it that special touch.
My family is finally being able to come over to visit me. So I’ll prepare some to receive them.
I hadn’t considered adding sliced avocado. Thank you for the idea!
