Nothing better than homemade everything bagels
As a non-American I never really grew up eating bagels, let alone homemade everything bagels. It just isn’t part of the Dutch culture. It was only when I was 18 that I had my first bagel in a hip new restaurant in my hometown. I immediately loved them! But they were incredibly expensive so I had to opt for storebought bagels. They weren’t quite what I had in that restaurant, because they were plain and boring. There was only one option, whereas the restaurant had around 10 different bagels! From plain ones to sweet potato bagels.
When I decided to make my own bagels I didn’t just want the plain ones. I wanted them to be special and extra delicious. I went for the everything bagels because that’s the one I had the first time I had a bagel and that’s the bagel that I fell in love with. On the internet I learned that in America they sell “everything but the bagel” seasoning and I was jealous. But on the other hand it challenged me to be extra creative and make my own seasoning.
When it comes to the toppings you’re totally free! The most popular one being cream cheese, but this is of course not a vegan option (I’m working on a recipe!). You can do simple toppings like hummus or avocado and tomato. Or just tomato and salt and pepper. The options are endless. I also like to toast my bagels before topping them.
If you make these bagels for your friends, family or your spouse, they will all love you for it! The extra effort you took to make your own bagels will impress them. If you have kids, ask them to help you and ask them what toppings or seasoning they want so everyone will have their own unique bagel!
Mix the water and the yeast together.
Mix the ingredients of the everyhing seasoning mixture together and set aside.
Once the dough has completely risen, take it out of the bowl and place on a lightly floured surface.
Shape each individual dough piece into a ball and flatten it slightly.
Bring a pot of water to a boil and add in the agave.
Place in the oven for 15 minutes, or until they start to brown.
