We Hacked the ‘Ted Lasso’ Biscuits Recipe, and Made It Vegan

Ted Lasso kinda came out of nowhere. Many of us on the LIVEKINDLY team didn’t initially flock to a show about a small-time American football coach hired to lead a pro soccer team in England. But the buzz got around, we tried it, and it became an unexpected treat during a year when a good TV show was, well, pretty much as good as it gets. It’s been the feel-good comedy we didn’t know we’d need so badly. (And most of us have a friend-crush on Jason Sudeikis.)

Why are we telling you all this? Because you should watch it, but also, we’re obsessed with Ted Lasso’s biscuits. To be clear, we mean the pink box of shortbread biscuits he brings his boss every morning. We quickly became obsessed with the whole idea of them, so we had to give the idea a vegan (and delicious) twist — and share the recipe with you. Without further ado, here’s our vegan Ted Lasso biscuits recipe:


1½ cups all purpose flour
½ cup almond flour
½ cup sugar
½ teaspoon sea salt
1 cup unsalted vegan butter (2 sticks)* cut into cubes, chilled
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Add your dry ingredients and pulse. | Brittney Chung for LIVEKINDLY

Drop in your dry ingredients

Heat up that oven to 350 ̊F, toss everything dry in a food processor and pulse, pulse, pulse. (Okay, we sound like a spin instructor.)

Pulse into a coarse meal. | Brittney Chung for LIVEKINDLY

Pulse to combine

Pulse until your mixture resembles a coarse meal.

Press into a pan and bake. | Brittney Chung for LIVEKINDLY

Bake it

Spray an 8×8 pan with non-stick spray, pour everything into the pan, and flatten with a spatula. Then, press the shortbread into the pan firmly with your hands and the spatula.

Bake in the oven for 30 to 35 minutes at 350 ̊F until lightly browned and be one with the English tea parlour smell that will fill your home. Check for doneness at the 30-minute mark.

Chill and cut it. | Brittney Chung for LIVEKINDLY

Chill and cut

Let it chill until cool. Cut it. (Or don’t cut it and eat it whole. It’s been a year.)

So crispy and so chewy. | Brittney Chung for LIVEKINDLY

Admire your masterpiece

Did we mention they’re slightly crispy on the outside and satisfyingly chewy inside?
