Hello lovelies, I hope you enjoy these lovely summer days as much as we do. We are now in the 5th week of the summer holidays and it was a little quieter here, as we make the most of it. But today I have a new summer recipe for you: Vegan stick bread with tofu wiener. The great weather is not only perfect to go swimming, it also invites you to many adventures in the forest and on the lake. A picnic or a camp fire shouldn’t be missing. I don‘t know how it is with you, but for me this is inevitably associated with delicious stick bread. For me it’s a great childhood memory and my children also love it very much. Here in Switzerland we’re fortunate to have many public fireplaces that invite you to grill and roast bread (usually even wood is ready).
So I prepared the dough, packed the picnic basket and off we went to the lake. The recipe for the vegan stick bread with tofu wiener was created in a renewed cooperation with Taifun Tofu*. We love their tofu products and everyone will find their favorite in the large selection. I think I already told you about my love for the Black Forrest Tofu. The kids like it a lot and we ALWAYS have it in the fridge. But this time we didn’t pack the tofu but the Mini Wiener. They go perfectly well with a delicious meal from the grill, wrapped in stick bread dough.
In addition to the stick bread we had fresh cucumbers, tomatoes, zucchini (all harvested from the garden), chips and of course delicious beverages. You don’t really require much more for a nice afternoon/evening by the fire. After the fire was lit, we looked for appropriate sticks in the forest, carved them and then started wrapping stick bread. I added roasted onions to the dough this time, which turned out totally delicious and in some “breads” we have wrapped a thin slice of zucchini next to the tofu sausages.
And now here is the recipe for the vegan stick bread with tofu wiener:
Vegan stick bread with tofu wiener
- 1/4 dice (approx. 10-15 gr fresh yeast or 2 tsp dried yeast
- 300 ml (1 ¼ cup) soy milk
- 1 Tbsp raw cane sugar
- 400 gr (3 cups) flour i.e. spelt
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 Tbsp olive oil
- 2 Tbsp fried onions
- 2 packages Taifun Tofu - Mini-Wiener
- 1 Zucchini
- Mix yeast with slightly warm milk and sugar and stir until fully dissolved
- Add flour, salt and olive oil and knead to a smooth dough
- Cover it up and let the dough rise in a slightly oiled bowl for approx. 2-3 hours
- Knead the fried onions into the dough
- Prepare sticks or skewers at the fireplace
- Knead the dough once again, slice the zucchini into thin stripes using a potato peeler
- Wrap a zucchini slice around the wiener and then a flat piece of the dough. Wrap them onto the sticks and bake them until they are well done
There are several ways to wrap the dough around the sticks, there are no limits to your imagination. Since our children, like most, are not super patient – certainly not when they are hungry – we have wrapped and skewered several sausages at the same time, that worked very well. The Taifun Mini Wiener taste nice and smoky and turn out so well with stick bread and fried onions. Extra tasty with a portion of ketchup, you can’t just go without it!
The dough sticks very well and is prepared super fast with only a few ingredients. Really perfect for a picnic with a fire pit. The kids were very busy wrapping and had a lot of fun with “their” bread, even though they ate half of it raw, due to a lack of patience – I know that too well from my childhood.
What do you think should definitley not be missing when having a campfire? I‘m sure the Mini Wiener in the dough are good for young and old, you should definitely try them. When we set up our picnic, some people walked by and admired our beautiful table. I would have liked to invite them all to try, because I‘m convinced that everyone would have been thrilled by the vegan stick bread with tofu sausages.
We had a very nice afternoon – by the way, we went to Türlersee, which is close to us and we love it there. There are a few great barbecue areas out there, wood is ready, there is drinking water and trash cans (but it’s best not to produce much garbage!). We can absolutely recommend this beautiful place and of course the stick bread with tofu wieners!
