Vegan Scone Recipe: Savory Carrot Dill Scone

January 8, 2016
Several weeks ago, I had an amazing scone at Body and Soul bakery stand at the farmer's market. This was a carrot celery scone that was round, not triangular, and dotted with carrots and celery in the middle. I loved it so much that I tried to get it again in subsequent weeks, but one week they were out, and then the next they had it on sale but I didn't have cash on get the idea. So I set out to make my own version, adding my favorite herb ever--dill! These savory vegan carrot dill scones are flaky and moist at the same time, and deliciously flavorful. They're the perfect side to a bowl of warm soup, or as an afternoon snack. Indulge your scone obsession with these pretty treats--bon appetit!

1. Heat oven to 400* F. 2. Peel and finely chop the carrot. In a saute pan, add a teaspoon of olive oil and bring to medium heat. When the oil is hot, add carrots and saute, lightly stirring, for 3-4 minutes. 3. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, onion and garlic powder, salt, and nutritional yeast. Sift through with a fork. 4. Add vegan butter, cutting it into small pea-sized pieces. 5. Add non dairy milk and chopped dill, and mix together to form a dry and slightly crumbly dough. If it is too dry, add just a splash of milk. 6. Place a parchment paper on a baking sheet. Form the dough into 6 round discs, denting the middle slightly. Spoon carrots into the center. 7. Bake in the oven for 14-20 minutes. Enjoy!
