The whole grain Flavorful Dinner Rolls I made today were inspired by the Mixed Rolls recipe in Paul Hollywood’s 100 Great Breads(page 31). I couldn’t resist the idea of using one recipe to produce 3 quite different rolls. These rolls had everything: marvelous variety in both flavor and texture. Therefore, I had to give them a try. I hope you find them to be as delightful as I did.
1 ¼ cup warm water
1 tsp yeast
3 cups white whole wheat flour
¾ cup soy flour
¼ cup gluten
1 Tbl salt
2/3 cup olive oil
2 Tbl finely chopped green pepper
2 Tbl finely chopped red onion
2 Tbl finely chopped walnuts
2 Tbl chopped smoked goudam cheese
2 Tbl roasted sesame seeds
Put yeast in 1 cup of warm water and let stand for 5 minutes.
Mix whole wheat flour, soy flour, gluten and salt together in a large bowl. Make a hole in the center.
Add rest of water, olive oil and yeast solution to flour mixture and stir.
Knead for 8 minutes.
Form into a ball, cover with a piece of oiled saran wrap, and let rise for 1 ½ hours.
Divide dough into 3 equal pieces.
In first piece add green pepper and onion. Combine well. Divide into 4 balls.
In second piece add walnuts and cheese. Combine well. Divide into 4 balls.
Cut the third piece of dough into 4 and form into balls. Cover each with sesame seeds.
Place all of the dough balls onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Cover with oiled saran wrap and let rise for 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Bake rolls for 20 minutes.
Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
RESULTS: Golden brown, tender, and inviting. As I keep saying, out of one recipe you have a choice of 3 very different rolls. These would go well with a soup and salad supper – either with a tomato based or with a cream based soup. A complete meal – and completely satisfying!
