If there is one thing I’ve come to love over the years, it’s a soft baked pretzel! My husband and I would always get them everywhere we went and today they’ve evolved to be such a staple everywhere. As a child I only experienced the iconic store bought option that you see vendors selling left and right, but a real homemade pretzel is completely different.
So if you’ve never had a homemade option, than you really need this recipe, like yesterday!
There are few things that are better than a homemade pretzel so I had explored making a vegan version back in circa 2014. However, the recipe was a complete flop and I procrastinated every trying it again. I share this because this happens to many people in the kitchen. You try a recipe, it fails and you stop trying, especially with vegan concepts. Making recipes with standard ingredients there is less risk, but the real win is creating a recipe sans animal products that works!
Since we’re all practicing social distancing I knew I had to finally give in and test more recipes. I tried 2 different dough recipes and this one was my personal favorite. If you’re looking to save time you can also explore this no rise option here. Once I found a dough that worked, I created a Cinnamon + Sugar and Jalapeño Cheddar!
Out of all the flavor combinations, I believe this one is actually my favorite! The recipe is easy to follow, affordable, has minimal ingredients, the texture is buttery soft, it’s packed with rosemary, has tons of vegan parmesan cheese, perfect for any season, any occasion, can be made into bites if preferred, great for entertaining, is a full proof recipe and is just such a game changer!
If you’re looking to take the pretzel plunge you have to try these new vegan Rosemary Parmesan Pretzels! You won’t regret it!
