Step 1: Get Yeasty!

Heat the soy milk to 105 degrees (not hotter) in a bowl, add the sugar and sprinkle the yeast on top of the mixture. Let it stand in a warm place until the yeast gets foamy.

Step 2: Whisk It!

In a separate bowl, whisk the flax seed with the warm milk-sugar-yeast mixture until it thickens.

Step 3: Make the Dough!

Add 1/3 of the Earth Balance (melted), along with the salt and flour to the warm milk-sugar-yeast-flaxseed mixture. Mix until a large dough ball forms.

Step 4: Knead It!

Knead the dough ball for 5 minutes or until it is firm and smooth, if it is too sticky add a small amount of flour. If it is too dry, add a small amount of water.

Step 5: Let It Rise!

Place the dough ball in an oiled bowl covered with a dishcloth. Then, place it is a warm area – such as a window sill and let it sit for 1 hour or until the dough doubles in size.
