Yes, we DO love cooking and baking. We especially love carbs in combination with fat and sugar and so we love: dough! Mixing dough, kneading dough, watching dough while it rises, rolling out dough and secretly eating half of the dough. BUT, and now we're getting to this article, sometimes you simply don't have the time for all of this (except for the eating part) and then it's totally fine to take a short cut in the kitchen.
Often, many people are surprised when they see how many store-bought doughs are actually vegan. But check out your supermarket and you'll see that's we're not lying. But where would a list of these doughs get us, if we're not telling you tasty recipes to bake with them?!
So here are 6 recipes that you can do quick & easy with vegan store-bought dough. If you'd rather to it with dough from scratch, we're more than delighted!
