Ingredients for Soft Pretzels

Whisk the agave, yeast, and water and allow to sit until it's foamy. Stir in the olive oil and salt, followed by the flour, 1 cup at a time, until the dough is no longer sticky.

Knead the dough gently, on a floured surface, until it forms into a smooth ball. Let it rise in a greased bowl until almost doubled, then divide it into 8 equal portions.

Roll each portion into a long snake, then arrange it in a U-shape and twist the two ends twice around each other. Fold toward the dip in the U and press the two “tails” into the dough where they meet it.

Bring water and baking soda to a boil and boil the pretzels for 30 seconds on each side. 

Then place the pretzels on a baking sheet, brush with vegan butter, sprinkle with kosher salt, and bake until golden brown. Serve warm with vegan beer cheese.
