Ingredients

  • ⅔ cup soymilk
  • 2 tsp. lemon juice or white vinegar
  • 1¾ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 Tbsp. sugar
  • 2½ tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 6 Tbsp. vegan margarine, cold and cut into pieces
  • ¾ cup mashed cooked sweet potato, cold
  • 3 Tbsp. vegan margarine, melted

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 425°F. Combine soymilk and lemon juice in a measuring cup and allow to sit for 10 minutes. In a large bowl, whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Using a pastry cutter or large fork, cut cold margarine into the mixture until it forms pea-sized pieces.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together sweet potato and soymilk mixture. Combine wet ingredients with flour mixture until just mixed. Knead slightly to shape into a disk, then pat dough to a 1" thickness. Using a 2" biscuit cutter or the rim of a drinking glass, cut dough into rounds and place 2" apart on a lightly greased baking sheet. Brush tops with melted margarine.
  • Bake 22–24 minutes, or until golden brown.
