  • Pinch of sugar
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 package active dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 tablespoons salt crystals
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

To Make the Vegan Cheese Sauce:

  • 2 large white potatoes
  • 3 1/5-ounces raw unsalted cashews
  • 1 tablespoon turmeric
  • 3 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • Pinch salt
  • 1/2 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable broth
  • 1 white onion
  • 1 clove garlic


To Make the Wholegrain Brezels:

  1. Mix warm water, sugar with the yeast and stir until it has dissolved.
  2. In a big mixing bowl, mix the salt and the flour with the oil and add the yeast mixture.
  3. Start kneading the dough with a spoon until roughly combined. After this, continue with your hands for around 5 minutes until you get a soft dough.
  4. Let this rise for around 30minutes – 1 hour in a warm place.
  5. Knead the dough again and part it into 12 equal parts
  6. Flour your surface and roll out the dough into a long snake and twist it into each other.
  7. Take the tips into your hands and fold it down to the curvy part of the snake and slightly press it down.
  8. Continue doing this until you have 12 small cute brezels.
  9. Preheat the oven to 335°F.
  10. Heat a big pot of water and add the baking soda (watch out the water will go crazy). Remove it from the heat for each brezel.
  11. Take a big spoon and take the brezel into the water. Dip the brezel into the water for around 30 seconds. Add the Salt on the brezel.
  12. Add the brezel to a baking sheet and cook them for around 7 minutes until brown and nice.

To Make the Vegan Cheese Sauce:

  1. Heat some water in a pot and add salt and peeled potatoes. After a while, add the onion.
  2. Heat some water and soak the cashews meanwhile the potatoes cook.
  3. When everything is soft add the spices, yeast, and vegetables in a blender and blend until smooth, adding some water if needed.
