Jalapeno and Everything Pretzels
These easy to make pretzels are chewy and filling – a tasty snack! Use various toppings, such as cinnamon and sugar, garlic powder, onion powder, or just plain coarse salt to fit the flavor needs of your friends and family. In this recipe I use two toppings, for jalapeno pretzels and Everything Bagel topping pretzels.

Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Lightly oil a large mixing bowl; set aside. In a second medium mixing bowl, add the flour, yeast, sugar and salt. Mix well. Pour the warm water over the top and mix with a spatula or your hands until combined. Turn the dough onto a floured surface and knead for 5 minutes.
  2. Place the dough into the lightly oiled large mixing bowl and cover loosely with a piece of plastic wrap or a damp kitchen towel. Put the covered bowl in a warm, draft-free spot and let the dough rise for 30 minutes. (You can let it rise for up to 90 minutes: longer rising time will yield fluffier, lighter pretzels.)
  3. Toward the end of the rising time, mix the 3 tablespoons of baking soda and two cups of hot water in a bowl or small casserole dish. Stir until baking soda has dissolved completely. You can also put the baking soda and water into a sauce pan and heat until the baking soda dissolves.
  4. Also, when the dough is almost done rising, preheat the oven to 425 F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper or oil the baking sheets.
  5. After the dough rises, punch the dough down (see link in above paragraphs) and place on a floured surface. Using a sharp knife or scraper, cut the dough into six equal pieces. Roll each dough section into a 15- to 18-inch rope. Shape each rope into a pretzel shape.
  6. Brush the baking soda mixture on each pretzel after shaping, or dip the entire pretzel into the water, keeping your hand under it to hold the shape. Place the dipped pretzel onto a baking sheet. For jalapeno pretzels, press jalapeno slices or chopped jalapenos into the pretzel tops before baking, then sprinkle with coarse salt.
  7. For Everything pretzels, sprinkle the tops with Everything Bagel seasoning (see intro paragraphs for recipe link) after brushing the pretzels with (or dipping them in) the baking soda water.
  8. Bake all the pretzels at 425 F for 10 to 12 minutes, rotating the baking sheets halfway through for even baking.
  9. Once baked, brush the pretzels with more vegan butter, sprinkling with more salt or Everything Bagel topping if desired. Eat warm or cooled. Uneaten pretzels will keep in an airtight container for up to two days.
