    A vegan bread suitable for Thanksgiving or Christmas! This is so good you non-vegetarian guests won't even notice it isn't their "regular" braided bread. This has the prettiest russet color for the fall/winter dinner table!

      This is a wonderful bread! I substituted canola oil for the safflower and used coconut milk for the soy. No measuring adjustments needed. I just kneaded it in my Kitchen Aide and the dough came out beautiful! Made a beautifully braided bread!

      I thought this was a great base bread. It goes fantastic with a hearty soup. and the crumb is nice and tight. I added an extra 1/2 cup of white flour to help with the gluten development, and kneaded it in a mixer with a dough hook. for home proofing I set the shaped loaves on a pan and in a garbage bag. they baked up perfect. I'm baking off another round with some fruit and nuts this weekend!

      This dough really was a pain in the rear to work with. I added at least another 2 cups of flour to the dough while kneading to try to keep it from sticking. Once finished, we didn't care for the taste of the bread, either. There was just way to much work involved in this one for the results.
