Being a vegan is tricky business sometimes. Especially because we live in a world were most people aren’t. Going grocery shopping makes you cringe and wish you can have yummy vegan food that is actually good for you. But what’s awesome about being one is that you can make your own awesome-tasting food at home. It can be time-consuming but it sure is worth it. I often read the ingredients of different kinds of bread at the super market hoping that they’re vegan but more often than not I find that they have oil and extra salt that I try to avoid. Also, a lot of the time I don’t trust manufacturers with my food. So I just give up on finding something I can eat without feeling bad afterwards and venture into my kitchen to roll up my sleeves and come up with a recipe that’ll make me both proud and satiated!
One of my proud recipe moments (as you might have guessed) was when I first made this dill pickle bread loaf. It was soft on the inside, thanks to the tapioca flour as it tends to have this bouncy texture (alsmot squishy) when it cooks. The crust was deliciously crispy nevertheless. It was aslo so full of flavor but not salty. Heavenly combo!
I made this recipe to guide you when you want to make your own loaf of deliciousness, but you can add different herbs and/or spices to the dough to make different falvored bread loafs. The fun part about this recipe is that it’s versatile enough to satisfy all dill pickle bread lovers. Eventhough this recipe is soy-free I would imagine adding a little soy sauce would add to its savoriness.
This dill pickle bread is absolutely delicious on its own. It’s an awesome little winter treat that will leave you feeling cozy and happily full.
I love having it with different spreads too, like hummus and other bean spreads, and with veggies, of course!
If you’re having gravy or stew, this bread is ready to soak it right up and deliver a mix of crumbly and moist texture that will make your mouth happy!
Without further ado, here’s my vegan dill pickle bread loaf recipe.

Dill Pickle Bread Recipe
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/2 cup tapioca flour
- 1 1/2 tbsp instant yeast
- 2 pinches salt
- 3/4 cup warm water
- 1 cup dill pickles ((low sodium))
- 1/2 cup chopped garlic
In a large bowl add wheat flour, tapioca flour, instant yeast and salt and give them a good mix-through.
Add warm water and mix until it becomes a dough. Knead dough and cover bowl. Leave it for an hour and knead it a bit more afterwards, then leave it for another hour to rise again.
When the dough is ready, preheat your oven to 400 F.
Squeeze as much water out of your dill pickles, then add them into your dough bowl along with the chopped garlic. Mix them all together.
Line a baking tray with parchment paper. Shape your dough into the shape you prefer, and place it onto the baking tray.
Place dough into oven and let it bake for 12-20 minutes or until done.
