Vegan Grilled Cheese and Dill Pickle Soup

I also have organic baking soda and I like to experiment. I set the oven to airfry which is 400 degrees and the timer for 10 minutes. While it was preheating I poured some flour into a bowl and added the yogurt mixed together and shaped some of the dough into a bagel. The big bagel in the picture is just the two ingredients. That one will be a future doughnut recipe.  Then I added some baking soda to the mixture and shaped into a bagel. The small
