A Very Healthy Vegan Brown Soda Bread recipe

8 Aug

What is the best thing to serve with Dee’s Traditional Vegan Sausages at breakfast time, why a lovely fresh slice of homemade vegan brown soda bread of course!

Vegan Brown Soda Bread



300g  Stone ground brown flour/ GF alternative

150g plain flour/GF alternative

75g wheat bran(Rice bran GF)

50g wheat germ (ground flax seeds)

50g pinhead oats (optional)

50g oat bran (optional)

30g sugar, white or brown

1 teaspoon sea-salt

1 teaspoon bread soda


500ml soya milk

3 tablespoons of white vinegar

3 tablespoons of oil

Topping (optional)

1-2 teaspoons of the following

Sunflower seeds

Pumpkin seeds

Sesame seeds


1.  Making ”buttermilk” in a bowl; Mix vinegar with oil and soya milk together and let stand for 5-10 min

2.  Preheat oven 180c

3.  In a second bowl. Mix all dry ingredients until well incorporated

4.  Making a well in the center of the dry mixture, add the “butter milk”. Mix well.

5.  Place in a greased  2lb loaf tin. Let it stand for 10 min to let the  “buttermilk” and bread soda react and begin working (this is what will make your bread rise!)

6.  Sprinkle seed mix on top

  1. Place in the middle rack of the oven and cook for 45-50 min or until a knife comes out clean


This recipe  can be easily doubled and freezes very well.

If you are freezing it, I would pre-slice the bread and then freeze it.

This can come in very handy. If you want some, to have with soup or to just defrost 1-2 pieces easily. Pop it in the toaster.  This is very helpful if you live by yourself and wouldn’t eat a whole loaf.

    Is bread soda the same thing as baking soda?
