Chive Biscuits

Enjoy these savory biscuits anytime. They are non dairy so they can be served with a meat meal, they taste so good along side a hearty beef stew. You can also eat them at breakfast with eggs or smoked salmon. They are truly versatile.


  • Prep Time : 15 min
  • Cook Time : 12 min
  • Ready Time : 27 min


8 Servings


  • 1 cup plain soy milk
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • ¾ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 4 tablespoons vegetable shortening
  • 2 tablespoons chopped chives


Preheat oven to 450° F.

In a small bowl, combine soy milk and vinegar and stir. Let sit 5 minutes or until lumpy.

In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt and stir.  Using your fingertips, rub shortening into dry ingredients until mixture looks like crumbs. (The faster the better, you don’t want the fats to melt.)  Stir in soy milk mixture and chives – dough will be sticky.

Turn dough out onto a floured board. Flatten to 1-inch thick, constantly flouring hands and dough if too sticky. Using a 2 ½-inch round cookie cutter, cut biscuits from dough and transfer to a greased sheet pan. Re-roll dough scraps and continue cutting until all the dough is used.

Bake 12 minutes or until golden brown and puffy. Serve warm.

  1. Just last week my honey expressed a desire for biscuits. Maybe I will surprise him for Thanksgiving. Have never used soy milk before.

  2. These look so good! I have such a hard time with parve biscuits and I would love to add these to chicken and biscuits.

  3. These are fabulous with Sunnyside eggs

    When you say shortening you mean margarine right? Cuz if you nean crosco shortening what could I use instead.

    • Earth Balance puts out a natural shortening or you can use margarine (I also use Earth Balance margarine) but note that it has a bit more water so it might cause some spreading. You could also try coconut oil BUT I haven’t tested it with yet.

  5. My daughter loved these but I thought they were a little bland. Served them with chicken but agree they probably go better with beef stew.
