Vegan Hanukkah Churros
We can find a lot of ourselves within our cooking, it is a way to share outwardly our love for others and for family. So often we forget to be open to grace and how to spread joy at this time of year. The focus can be on buying gifts, going to parties or making work deadlines and we forget that simplicity is so often where we find our grace and love.
I rarely give gifts to adults, normally I bake or cook dishes for them to enjoy and not be burdened with extra things in their houses. Churros were easy to make and fun to watch disappear as stealth nibblers grabbed them and ran around.
- 1 cup of all purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons egg substitute plus 1/3 cup water
- 1 1/4 cup of water
- 2 tablespoons of sugar
- 1/2 stick of vegan butter
- 1/2 cup of sugar for the bag
- 3 teaspoons of cinnamon for the bag
- Vegetable oil for frying
Pour 1 1/4 cups water over the butter and 2 tablespoons of sugar into a sauce pan. Bring everything to a good boil and then reduce the heat to low medium. Add in the egg substitute and 1 cup of flour a 1/4 cup at a time and whisk quickly until a shiny ball is formed.
Dust a sheet of wax paper and your hands. Pinch a tablespoon of dough and use your palms to roll out long pillars of dough. Remember that the thicker they are the softer the insides will be.
Cook in your fryer for 3 minutes. Use tongs to grab them while hot and shake in a paper bag with sugar and cinnamon to taste.
