procrastinating studying for exams this December I decided to tackle a new to me baking project – bagels!
Can I just say how proud I was with my delicious doughy creations?
For some reason I never considered making my own bagels. They just seem like something you need to buy already made. But these were easy, and fun!
The best part was making the holes in the bagels. You just make little balls of dough, stick your finger through the centre, and twirl it around until you have the desired hole size.
The boiling step gives the bagels their characteristic crust.
Did I mention these aren’t just any bagels? That’s right, these are kale bagels. Can’t get those at any store, that’s for sure!
My favourite way to enjoy them was toasted with a little butter. It really enhanced the savoury kale flavour.
Now that I know how easy bagels are to make, I can’t justify spending money on premade bagels at the store anymore. And think of the endless flavour combinations you could come up with to tickle your fancy! I’m thinking of baking a fresh batch of bagels for brunch on Christmas morning.
If you want to try your hand at these kale bagels (and I highly suggest you do), check out the recipe here.
