Heart beet bagels 120 minutes

These beautiful heart beet bagels can be made for valentine's day but imagine how great a thing it would be to make these for someone you care about on a random day for no specific reason. We shouldn't wait for special occasions to cook amazing food for the people we love. Make some pink bagels today just because!

Bagels are definitely a montreal thing walking by Fairmount bagel or St-Viateur and not purchasing freshly baked goods is almost impossible.

The smell is just amazing.

When i was a teen i didn't get to go into town often but when i did we would always stop by Fairmount bagel. The place was ad is still open 24 hours.

I actually live pretty close to it now and yet i havent been in a while. Mostly because I make my own bagels now they may not be fairmount quality but they are pretty damn good!

...and pink!

Make this for yourself or for someone you care about. Whether it be for v-day... or just because!

    10 servings

  • Preheat oven to 400F.
  • Cut 1 large-sized beet into cubes, bake on a baking sheet for 30 minutes. Puree with a handblender or food processor, as finely as you can. Set aside.
  • Put 1 tbsp of coconut sugar into a bowl with 1 cup of warm water, sprinkle 2 tsp of active dry yeast. Let foam for 5 minutes.
  • Mix in 1/2 tsp of salt, the beet puree as well as 2 cups of all purpose flour. Stir until the dough doesn't stick to the sides of the bowl. Transfer dough to a lightly floured working surface and continue to knead, adding more flour until you get a nice even dough that doesn't stick to your hands.
  • Form into a ball, put in a bowl greased with some vegan butter or olive oil. Cover and let rise in a warm place for 1 hour or until the dough has doubled in size.
  • Punch down the dough and separate into 10 balls. Roll out the balls into 8" long ropes and prepare a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Shape the ropes into hearts directly onto your baking sheet, we want to move them as little as possible to avoid distorting the shapes. Pinch the ends of each heart together carefully. Cover with a clean dishcloth and let rise for an additional 20 minutes.
  • While dough is resting, preheat oven to 400F . Fill a large pot with water, bring to a boil.
  • Pick up each heart carefully and drop into the boiling water for 30 seconds. Pull out out the bagel with a slotted spoon and let drawin over a set of paper towels.
  • Transfer the boiled bagels back onto the parchment-lined baking sheet. Brush the tops with a mixture of 1 tbsp of soy milk and 1 tbsp of maple syrup and sprinkle some poppy seeds over each one.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes. Let cool on a cooling rack or over a set of dish towels. Serve with your choice of jam!
