Enjoy this homemade vegan sourdough bread as a delicious and satisfying addition to any meal!

  • Total Time: 15 hrs
  • Yield: 1 loaf/12 slices 1x


  • 1 cup (240ml) active sourdough starter
  • 1 ½ cups (360ml) lukewarm water
  • 4 cups (480g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon (6g) salt


  1. In a large bowl, combine the sourdough starter and lukewarm water. Mix well.
  2. Add the flour and salt to the starter mixture. Mix until a rough dough forms.
  3. Cover the bowl with a damp cloth and let it rest for 30 minutes.
  4. After resting, knead the dough in the bowl for about 5 minutes. If the dough is too sticky, add a bit more flour. It should be soft but not overly sticky.
  5. Cover the bowl again and let the dough rise at room temperature for about 8-12 hours, or until it doubles in size.
  6. Gently deflate the dough and transfer it to a floured surface.
  7. Shape the dough into a round loaf.
  8. Place the loaf on a parchment paper-lined baking tray or a well-floured banneton.
  9. Cover the shaped loaf and let it rise for another 1-2 hours, or until it puffs up noticeably.
  10. Preheat the oven to 450°F (230°C).
  11. If you have a baking stone, place it in the oven to heat up. If not, a regular baking tray will work.
  12. Just before baking, make a few shallow cuts on top of the loaf with a sharp knife. This is called scoring and helps the bread expand in the oven.
  13. Bake the bread for 35-40 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the loaf sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom.
  14. Remove the bread from the oven and let it cool on a wire rack for at least an hour before slicing.
