Tasty vegan spiced spelt savoury scones!

Hello, my friends! Long time no see! The last 2 weeks, I lost my blog mojo. I didn’t feel to cook nor bake. Then, I fell from the stairs in my home & my husband got sick as well. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

But now, I am better & my husband is okay too. Now, I have plenty of energy again to cook & bake! Let’s get on with it! I invented these tasty savoury vegan scones. They are a bit spicy at the end of your tongue with the smoked spicy paprika in it! They are tasty on their own, sliced open, layered with a vegan cheddar cheese slice or eat them, sliced open, with some vegan butter smeared on them, lovely to enjoy with a home-made vegan soup, yum yum! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Tasty vegan savoury scones, baked with lots of love!

Make these tasty savory scones now! You need them in your life,…;)

Recipe: For about 15 smaller round scones, diameter 5 cm

Ingredients:

* The dry ingredients:

350 gr light organic spelt flour

20 gr baking powder

100 gr vegan vegetable fat, in chunks / I use Trex

150 gr vegan green olives stuffed with red bell pepper, out of a can, rinsed & drained well, each filled olive, cut up into 2 or 3 slices

60 gr canned corn, rinsed & well-drained

20 grins of finely milled black pepper

1 teaspoon of crushed Maldon sea salt flakes

1 teaspoon + 1/2 teaspoon of spicy smoked paprika ( Pimentรณn de la Vera, the spicy version.)

1/2 teaspoon dried shalot granules

* The wet ingredients:

80 gr silken tofu, well-drained

150 ml unsweetened soy milk

Method:

1. Preheat your oven to 200ยฐ C ( 400 F ) for about 10 minutes. I always use a fan oven. Adjust your oven to the right temperature, if you need to.

2. Take a large bowl & ad spelt flour & baking powder. Mix well with a spoon. Take your Kenwood-bowl from your Kenwood kitchen robot. Sieve the flour & baking powder. Place the dough hook. Add the vegetable fat. Mix on low-speed together. Scrape the sides of the bowl often & remix. Add the cut up olives, corn, shalot granules, 20 grins of finely milled black pepper, 1 teaspoon of Maldon sea salt & 1 + 1/2 teaspoon of smoked spicy paprika. Mix well.

3. Now, add wet ingredients to this mix. This is the silken tofu & soy milk. Mix until well joined on higher speed. Taste. It has to taste good & a bit spicy. Don’t knead the dough too long with the dough hook. Flour a Silpat or a kitchen counter well with the same light spelt flour. With floured hands, place your dough onto the Silpat. Knead for 1 minute or so, until the dough comes together, but not too long. If your dough is too wet, add about 1 to 3 spoonfuls of the same flour to the wet dough & knead it until it comes together.ย Make a rounder shape, about 1 cm thick. With your 5cm cutter, flour it on the insides to prevent sticking. Make rounds into the dough & place them spaced apart onto a clean Silpat on an oven rack for stability. Re-use the other rest of the dough & do the same. Bake in the preheated oven for about 13 to 15 minutes until slightly golden on the sides & on top. Mine took 15 minutes. Place the risen baked scones on a wire rack to cool down. When cold, place into a cookie or cake box. But I assure you, they won’t last that long! ๐Ÿ™‚ They are lovely & airy on the inside!

A lovely airy & tasty interior!

  9. Tammy says:

    These look so good Sophie! I need to start using spelt flour!

  10. Ina Gawne says:

    Sophie – your scones look wonderful!

  11. hotlyspiced says:

    What beautiful looking scones. I’m sorry to hear you fell down the stairs – that would have been very frightening. I hope you’re not too bruised and battered. And welcome back – I was wondering what was going on in your life xx

  12. The Vegan Green says:

    Scrumptious ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. liveblissful says:

    Happy you guys are feeling better! These look great. I love recipes with spelt. Is vegan vegetable fat shortening? we don’t have shortening here, so I dont really know what it is. But is vegan butter ok to use instead?

    • Sophie33 says:

      I think soyes: Shortening is any fat that is solid at room temperature and used to make crumbly pastry. In pastries such as cake, which should not be elastic, shortening is used.

      Although butter is solid at room temperature and is frequently used in making pastry, the term “shortening” seldom refers to butter but is more closely related to margarine.

      So, if you don’t have vegetable fat aka shortening use margarine but no butter!

  14. Welcome back, Sophie. You were missed! I really enjoy your kitchen adventures. Blessings–Melanie.

  15. Liz says:

    Gorgeous! You are seriously talented in the kitchen:-) But so sorry to hear about your fall. Glad if everyone has recovered.

  16. Oh Sophie, I hope you are both ok after the fall and illness? I’d love one of these scones warm from the oven ๐Ÿ˜€

  17. Norma Chang says:

    Sorry to learn about your fall and that your husband was not well. Glad you are better and your husband is OK. I would like the scones with cheddar cheese and soup.

  18. Saskia (1=2) says:

    Good to hear you’re feeling better Sophie. The scones look beautiful, lovely and soft inside. I’d like some now please.

    • Sophie33 says:

      Thanks, dear Saskia! You can have 2, if you like. One will really fill you up, for about 1.5 hour, if you lay it with vegan cheddar sliced cheese!

  19. Koko says:

    Sophie! So sad to hear about your fall and Peter’s sickness- that sounds terrible! I admire your positive attitude though, and I’m so glad you’re ready to back up and into the blog again! I had been wondering where my favourite foodie blogger was!

    What a way to start back up- these scones look amazing! I know I would love the smoked paprika in them. I want one warm and sliced open with some butter. Yummmmmmm!

    • Sophie33 says:

      ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you, derar Koko! I knew that you would digg these tasty savoury scones, all vegan too! ๐Ÿ™‚

  20. Katarina says:

    I’m sorry to hear about your fall, hope it’s nothing serious! I have been missing your writing and recipes, so I’m happy to hear from you again! I love scones and these sounds so delicious!

  21. Spelt is one flour that I actually don’t keep on hand regularly! I just never think to use it, which is a real shame, especially considering how delicious those scones look. I’ve definitely been indulging my salt tooth more lately after a bit of a dessert overdose, so I love the sound of these savory baked goods.

    • Sophie33 says:

      I use light organic spelt flour because it is more healthy then normal white flour & it fills you up longer. I like it the healthier way! a bit!

  22. Carolyn Jung says:

    Oooh, a savory scone. This will give me an excuse to eat scones during many more times of the day. LOL

  23. Candy says:

    Hi Sophie, glad to hear you’re on the mend, these look tasty and are packed with lots of flavour ๐Ÿ™‚

  24. boeddhamum says:

    dear Sophie,I hope you’re fine again; the scones look great!!

  25. Thomas says:

    Hi delicious I love scones and all Vegan too.. Well done Sophie ๐Ÿ™‚

  26. Thomas says:

    Oops and you used spelt too. Awesome ๐Ÿ˜‰

  27. Barbara says:

    Glad you’re feeling better, Sophie!
    Your scones are fabulous. I have GOT to try spelt flour. And yes, with soup, perfect.

    • Sophie33 says:

      Thanks, dear Barbara! ๐Ÿ™‚ It is a must, buy organic too! I loev to use white spelt flour instead of normal organic white flour for better flavour & because it is more healthier too!

  28. catherinefarley says:

    Sorry you took a spill, Sophie. I’m happy to read that both of you are doing better now. There are so many yummy ingredients in your scones. I just know they are delicious.

  29. Sophie I am so glad to hear you are both better. These scones sound fantastic! When are you bringing these over!

  30. timethief says:

    This recipe went on the list for hubby to make. I’m thinking that I’d love these scones with my homemade soup.

  31. Starr says:

    Great looking scones! They’ll make a nice (and tasty) change from the usual dinner buns.

  32. Juliana says:

    These savory scones look great…and yes filled with cheese look even better.
    Enjoy the rest of your week Sophie!

  33. Bernice says:

  37. Ally says:

    Oh dear Sophie! I’m sorry to hear that you had a bad fall. I definitely noticed your absence. It’s great to ‘see’ your enthusiastic and cheery self again.
    These scones look delicious. They would be great for my kids’ lunch boxes. ๐Ÿ™‚

  38. Mitzie Mee says:

    Glad that you’re back, but *ouch* falling down the stairs and becoming sick, -it would also make me lose my mojo:/ Hope you and your husband are both better now. The scones certainly look good:)

  39. afracooking says:
