1 can of Beets, Juice only

2 tbsp of red wine vinegar

1 Roll of Pillsbury Pizza dough or 2 Crescent Roll Packages

1/2 cup of melted butter

2 tbsp of nutritional yeast

1 8oz bag of Follow Your Heart Shredded Mozzarella

1 tbsp of Caraway or Fennel Seeds

3/4 cup of Sauerkraut, plus 1/4 for serving

1 bottle of Follow Your Heart Thousand Island (or make your own, recipe below)

Salt and Pepper

Directions

Chop your seitan or chicken into thin small pieces

Place your seitan or chicken in a container with a lid

Add in your beet juice and vinegar

Season with salt and pepper (A pinch of salt and a generous amount of pepper. You can even add in peppercorns if your willing to pick each one out before cooking)

Mix together with a spoon

Place on your lid and shake to make sure everything gets mixed well

Marinate in refrigerator for at least 1 hour

When ready to make monkey bread, pre-heat oven to 400 (Or heat as directed by your dough)

In a large mixing bowl take out your dough and pinch into small pieces and then roll into a small ball (roughly 1/2-3/4 inch thick)

Place into bowl

Repeat with remaining dough

Mix your melted cooled butter with nutritional yeast

Pour over rolled dough balls

Remove your vegan meat from liquid and place into bowl

Add in your caraway or fennel seeds

Followed by your cheese and sauerkraut

Using your clean hands

Carefully mix everything together

Spray your bundt pan generously with cooking spray or oil

Carefully add your monkey bread mix evenly into prepared baking pan

Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes

After 20 minutes check on the bread and turn oven down to 375

(Ovens and dough may vary and so will cooking time)

After the 20 minutes check again after 10

Monkey bread is done when it's puffy and crisp on the top. Stick a toothpick into the thickest part to make sure it comes out clean (besides cheese and butter)

When done remove from oven

Let sit for 10 minutes
