- 1 package (7.5 oz) Chebe All Purpose Bread Mix
- 6 Tbsp (75g) aquafaba (liquid from a can of chickpeas) See note below
- 4 Tbsp milk substitute (almond, soy, etc.)
- 2 Tbsp oil
- 2 oz dairy free or vegan cheese cheddar flavor (e.g. Daiya)
Preheat the oven to 375 F. In a mixing bowl with a fork, blend the Chebe All Purpose Mix with 6 Tbsp aquafaba (you can measure 75g if you have a scale).
Continue blending while adding the milk substitute, oil and cheese. (You could also do this in a food processor that can handle bread dough.) When the fork can no longer blend the ingredients, use your hands to complete the process. Blend until the dough is smooth.
You should have 14 to 15 oz of dough. Separate into 12 equal pieces and roll them into a smooth ball, then flatten them into a plump disc shape and place them on a baking tray.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool slightly.
What is ‘aquafaba’? Aquafaba (bean water) is the liquid from cooked legumes (pinto beans, chickpeas, lentils, etc.). It works great as an egg substitute for many applications (3 Tbsp = 1 egg). The liquid can be from cooking the raw legumes on your stove or that from a can of beans. With this recipe we used the liquid from a can of chickpeas (garbanzo beans). Its consistency works very well for the 3 Tbsp = 1 egg exchange.
Depending on the cheese substitute that you use, this can be a 100% vegan recipe for Brazilian ‘Cheese’ Bread!
If you want to save some for another day, freeze them in an airtight container. Reheat in a hot (450 F) oven for 5 – 8 minutes.

It goes great with a dab of jam, a dollop of hummus, or dip it into marinara sauce.
