How to Make Hella Vegan Eats' Garlic Chive Biscuits

Let me tell you about my friends, Tiffany and Sylvee. Back when I first met them, we were all baristas at the same cafe. We hated our customers, and all of our co-workers were kind of boring, so every so often we'd escape it all to hang out in a garage or on the couch somewhere messing with musical instruments, creating art projects, and cooking delicious food. Many years later, Tiffany and Sylvee got married and traveled through Central America for six months, before settling in their new home in Oakland, California. They waited tables and worked in the kitchens of various restaurants, but in time, they left it all to start their very own vegan tamale catering company, Hella Vegan Eats. Today, Hella Vegan Eats has become one of the most popular food trucks in the San Francisco area, offering anything from vegan chicken and waffles to tofu banh mi. So much so, that Tiffany and Sylvee recently made Zagat San Francisco's 30 Under 30 list for their innovative recipes and ability to win the hearts (and stomachs) of the Bay's most stubborn carnivores. With this holiday season in mind, Hella Vegan Eats have decided to share their favorite biscuit recipe. It's quick and simple and can be easily made with ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen! ----------------------------------------------------------------- Vegan Garlic Chive Biscuits 4 cups flour 1 1/2 tbsp baking powder 1 1/2 tbsp salt 1 tbsp finely ground pepper 1 small bunch of finely chopped garlic chives 1 cup of rice bran oil (or vegan butter) 1 - 1 1/2 cups of nondairy milk (or water) 1. In a bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, salt, pepper, garlic, and chives. 2. Fold in the rice bran oil (or vegan butter) until the mix is crumbly Then add the milk or water. 3. Kneed or mix until your dough is buttery and smooth. 4. Sprinkle some flour on your counter and roll out the dough to about 1 inch thickness. 5. Use your favorite cutter to make the biscuits and place on oiled baking sheet. 6. Brush or spray on oil on top and bake in center of oven for 10 to 12 minutes depending on size. These will last for 3 days in the fridge or a month in the freezer!
These sound awesome!
Your little intros to all of your recipes crack me up!
You say garlic chive and I'm IN!
@KrisGreene Oops! Sorry, that was a typo. It's actually a 'garlic chive', a specific type of chive.
@GetFitwithAmy Food tastes better when it has a nice sentimental story attached to it! Don't you think?

Are Any of You Gluten-Free (Can You Eat in Korea?)
A lot of people message me on YouTube and Tumblr asking about dietary restrictions in Korea and to be quite honest, it can be tough. Not many people in Korea have food allergies like I am used to in the US (peanut allergies, being lactose intolerant, etc) So when non-Koreans come to Korea and start to ask for certain foods to be changed (like, please don't add carrots) because of an allergy, its uncommon so restaurants often aren't sure what to do. Recently though, there has been a movement to make vegetarianism and veganism more accepted in Korea, a country famous for its meat dishes, and as a result people are learning more about food and different diets! My friend Sunny is Korean and in her late teens she developed allergies to a ton of different things, including gluten. Because her diet because so restricted, she started cooking for herself. She then discovered a small but hungry group of gluten-free people in Korea who wanted some of the desserts she had been baking for herself. After gaining more and more popularity, she opened Sunny Bread and now serves everything from cheesecake to tiramisu to pumpkin pie, all vegan and gluten free! She also knows how hard it is to have an allergy, plus she speaks English really well, so if you go in nand talk to her about what you can and can't eat, I'm sure she'll have suggestions for where to eat in Seoul :) Here's a look at her bakery~ Do any of you have food allergies? What can't you eat?
