Light and fluffy, Vegan Cheese & Chive Scones. Dairyfree but full of flavour thanks to the vegan parmesan & fresh chives! Most people will be familiar with those sweet or fruit filled ones but have you ever tried a Savoury scone? Yum! These Vegan Cheese & Chive Scones are great with slow cooker stews or even better a nice hot bowl of my Creamy Vegan Butternut Squash Soup.
I cook scones on a preheated pizza stone in a fan oven at 200C but a floured baking tray will work just as well – they may just need a few extra minutes.
Weigh the flour into a mixing bowl and stir in the garlic powder. Add the dairy free margarine to the flour mixture and rub together with your fingertips until you have a breadcrumb like mixture. Stir in the chopped chives and vegan cheese.
In a separate jug measure out the dairy free milk and add to the dry ingredients. Now for the messy bit – either use a spoon or you hands – its up to you! Gently stir together all the ingredients until a soft dough is formed. Turn out onto a floured board and gently knead in more flour if its very sticky.
Roll or squash the dough flat and using a floured straight sided knife cut the dough circle into 6 triangles. Cut through the dough but don't separate the individual scones. I roll the dough out to about an inch and a half thick.
Spread out on a floured baking tray and bake for 20-25mins until golden brown.
