Vegan Bread Rolls

When I started doing these bread rolls I had a clear idea in mind: crusty vegan rolls for my fried mushroom to create amazing animal free sandwiches. When I made them the first time, the crust was perfect but I felt that they were too dense. So I went back to drawing board and tweaked my recipe. The final result: some of theeeeeee softest bread I have ever had (scouts honor). These are definitely going to become a staple in my home, bringing with it the smell of freshly baked bread and the promise of something delightful. INGREDIENTS 2 1/4 cups All Purpose Flour plus more for dusting 1 tbsp Brown Sugar 2 tbsp Vegan Butter or Margarine 1/3 cup warm Water 1/2 cup warm Coconut Milk (or any plant based milk) 1 bowl Chia (egg replacement) (1 tbsp chia seeds in 3 tbsp water and let sit for 5-10 mins) 1 1/2 tsp Instant Yeast 1 tsp Salt TOPPING 2 tbsp Water 1 tbsp Sesame Seeds METHOD ●To a large mixing bowl add yeast and sugar. Whisk in warm milk and water (note liquid must be just slightly above room temp if water is hot it will kill yeast) ●Set aside and allow yeast to bloom for 5-7 mins. ●In separate medium mixing bowl add salt, flour and butter. Using hands rub the butter into the flour until properly incorporated. ●Once yeast has bloomed and water is frothy whisk chia blend into the water then gradually add flour and stir till you get a shaggy dough. You want your dough to be shaggy before kneading. ●Knead dough using hands for approximately 2 mins mins (dough will be sticky so dust the surface lightly but keep dough soft. *you can use mixing bowl and dough hook for this recipe I just prefer to use my hands* ●Place kneaded dough back into large mixing bowl and cover with a damp towel and let rise for 45mins. ●Remove dough from large mixing bowl and place on flour dusted surface cut into 5 large rolls or 10 small rolls. ●Form balls with your rolls and then flatten them slightly. ●Place on greased and floured baking tray and cover again with a damp towel, set aside in a warm place and let rise again for 10-15 mins. ●Brush top of dough with water using a pastry brush and top with sesame seeds. ●Place in preheated oven and bake at 250° for 15 - 20 mins or until top of bread is golden bread. Remove from oven and set to cool for several min on wire rack or eat straight out of the oven with desired fillings. Thanks for joining me for another session of Food Therapy. Hope to see you soon ❤
