Ingredients

Instructions

  • Mix the yeast, water and sugar. Stir and let it stand at least five minutes or until the yeast starts to froth and multiply.
  • Add the flours and salt. With your hands, or using a stand mixer set to low speed, knead until you have a sticky dough, around 6 minutes. If the dough is too soft, add some more bread flour.
  • Place the dough in a well-oiled bowl, turning over once to coat with the oil, and let it rise in a warm place until doubled. In my summer kitchen this took just around 45 minutes.
  • Punch the dough down and, on a lightly oiled surface, roll it into a rectangle about 8 inches by 12 inches.
  • Spread the garlic and herb mixture evenly on the rectangle, then, starting with the short side, roll the dough into a log (as you would for a jelly roll or cinnamon bun or parotta).
  • Using a sharp knife or a pair of scissors, cut the log into 1-inch lengths. You should have eight pieces.
  • Place each of the rolls on a lightly oiled baking sheet, pressing each down into a circle. Place them at least two inches apart.
  • Cover loosely and let them rise for another hour until they are nice and puffed up.
  • I brushed the tops of mine with a mixture of egg replacement powder and soymilk to give them a glossy finish, and then I sprinkled the top with sesame seeds. You can use poppy seeds too, or leave the seeds and egg-replacer wash out altogether.
  • Bake in a 375-degree oven for 25 minutes. The rolls will be golden brown.
  • Let them cool for about 10 minutes, then remove to a rack and let them cool thoroughly.
  • Enjoy!
