Vegan Quick Dinner Rolls
Three ingredients is all that is required to prepare a tasty batch of no-knead, no-rising, no-yeast quick dinner rolls! The ingredients are self-raising flour, plant milk and vegan mayonnaise. Although the self-raising or rising flour can be replaced with plain/all-purpose flour with 2 teaspoons of baking powder sieved through.
Enjoy these bread rolls plain or jazz them up with your own choice of flavourings. My family particularly enjoy a few teaspoons of garlic powder, a teaspoon of onion powder and a pinch of salt.
The aromas that escape when these little garlic flavoured dinner rolls emerge out of the oven will have your mouth watering in anticipation!
One of my son's favourite breakfasts is to grab one of these quick dinner rolls that have been flavoured with a few tablespoons of vegan chocolate chips and a teaspoon of vanilla essence.
The result is a tasty home-made alternative to shop-bought pain au chocolates although not as sweet as processed rolls but we prefer it that way.
