easy whole wheat bagelsSubmitted by: BKATHERINEH
1 cup warm water
3 cups whole wheat flour
1 1/2 tbsp sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoon yeast
Place all ingredients in bread machine and set for normal white vegan bread. Let the machine knead once and then turn off the machine and set a timer for 20 minutes. When time is up remove dough and cut into eight equal peices. Roll each piece into a rope about 1 inch thick, wet ends and stick together. Put all bagels on a greased cookie sheet, cover and let rest for 15 minutes in a warm place. Fill a wok (or whatever you use) with about three inches of water. Place two tblsp of vegan sugar in this water and bring to a boil. After the bagels rise for the fifteen minutes add them to the boiling water for 1 minute turning them as they boil. Drain and place on the greased cookie sheet again ( sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds if you like). Bake at 550 for 15 minutes or until desired browning occures.
For the bread-machine-free:
mix 1/2 cup water [slightly warm], sugar, salt and yeast, let sit for 10+ min.mix wet ingredients with dry, forming a dough immediately make the bagels, don't let the dough rest (point: it rises as a bagel so you're not squishing the air out when you cut and roll dough into bagels)
let raw bagels sit for about 45 min.
Boil bagels for 2-3 minutes.
dip half of the bagel in a bowl of corn meal.
set on pan, let rest for another 45 min
cook at 475 F for 10 minutes, or until golden brown.
Number of Servings: 8
