Everyone loves the taste of Spanish churros. Even vegans do not want to be deprived of this taste. That’s why we offer a recipe so that you can easily make this dessert, which is completely suitable for your vegan diet, at home.
Let’s Learn This Delicious Spanish Vegan Churro Recipe
Churros are one of the first flavors that come to mind when it comes to Spanish cuisine. Churros are crispy outside and soft inside. Looking at the ingredients and method of making churros dough, most recipes call for profiteroles and eclairs, which contain dairy. But what we are going to prepare now is actually different from all of them. Because with totally vegan ingredients, we will cook something even more delicious than the usual churros.
“More delicious than the usual ones” is a bit of a pretentious sentence isn’t it? Yes, but we stand behind this statement. Let us give you a few tips on how to make it happen.
First of all, you need to heat the oil well. But beware! We’re not talking about a little warming up. You have to heat it until the oil in the pan looks like it will jump out of the pan at any moment.
In this way, you can ensure that the outside of the churro is cooked the way you want. Just as the outside must be thoroughly cooked, the inside must also be cooked. For this, the churros need to wait long enough in the oil. After the outside is fried, they need to stay in oil a little longer so that the insides are cooked well.
But there is still a problem. At this stage, if the churros are kept in the oil for a long time in the same position, it is inevitable that you will burn them. So what should you do? You have to change positions frequently to avoid getting burned. Turning it upside down often will work. If you do not pay attention to this, it seems inevitable that the outside will be cooked perfectly and the inside will remain doughy.
We have one more tip. For deep-fried foods such as churros, the best way to create a deep-frying effect using less oil is to use a narrow, deep pan. In this way, it becomes possible to obtain depth in a small area. Now, if you’re ready, let’s take a look at what ingredients are needed and the step-by-step recipe.
Ingredients for Spanish Vegan Churro Recipe
2 and 1/2 tablespoons of organic sugar
1 and 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons of vegan butter or vegetable oil
1 cup of water
Neutral tasting oil for frying
Salt for taste
1 tablespoon of cinnamon
1/2 cup of organic sugar
Spanish Vegan Churro Recipe
Let’s start by boiling the water. Put the boiling water in a narrow saucepan on the stove and add the vegan butter, salt and sugar to it. Mix it for a while so that everything melts. You should see the mixture boil well. If you have seen this, remove the mixture from the heat and set it aside. While the mixture is still hot, add the flour and mix well with a wooden spoon. You will see that it becomes a soft dough.
Give it a completely round dough shape and let it sit for a short time. 3 minutes will be enough. Meanwhile, prepare your piping bag. If possible, a star-shaped tip is ideal. Now it’s time to show off all the skills you learned above. Warm the oil well. Take some of the dough you prepared and put it in your piping bag. And squeeze into this well-heated oil to the desired length. Start frying by squeezing out as much dough as the pan accepts. Turn them constantly to continue cooking. When they are golden brown enough, place them on a plate with a thick paper towel.
Mix the cinnamon and sugar in a bowl. Dip the churros one by one in the cinnamon and sugar you mixed with each other and transfer them to another plate. Voila! What do you think?
