Easy Plant-Based Dinner Rolls
Serves 8 • Total Time: 15 minutes-1 hour  • FODMAP rating: low to medium

This easy recipe is so versatile and can be used in a variety of different ways. Try them shaped in rolls, as pizza dough or even breadsticks. The longer you let the dough rise, the fluffier the final product will be. 

1½ cup warm water
1 tablespoon instant yeast
1 tablespoon granulated sugar, preferably white
2½ cups white whole wheat flour or blend with all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon ground flaxseed
1½ teaspoon salt

1.Mix together warm water, yeast and granulated sugar and let sit for 10 minutes to make sure the yeast activates.
2.Add flours, flaxseed and salt to the yeast mixture and knead until dough forms. This can be done with a dough hook in a standing mixer as well. Add enough flour or more water to make sure the dough forms and doesn’t stick to the sides but has a bit of stickiness at the bottom of the bowl still.
3.Remove onto a floured surface and finish hand kneading as needed until a nice smooth round ball can be formed and placed in a bowl and covered well with plastic wrap and let it rise for 15 to 20 minutes in a warm location. Allow it to rise up to an hour for a more fluffy final texture.
At this point, the dough can be placed in the refrigerator up to 48 hours before baking. When ready to bake, leave it out to warm up for at least 30 minutes. 
5.When ready to bake: Preheat the oven to 350°F for rolls, 375°F for pizza dough or 426°F for breadsticks.
6.Once it has risen (twice the size), remove and hand knead it out into pizza dough, rolls or breadsticks and bake for 11 to 12 minutes for breadsticks and rolls (23 to 25 minutes for pizza) or until golden brown. 

*Don’t forget to preload on vegetables before you eat!
*Gluten-Free: When using gluten-free alternative bread flour, don’t worry about kneading because it doesn’t contain gluten. Get the bread to rise by placing it in a warm oven set at 200°F. When baking: start with a lower oven temperature of 350°F increasing to 375°F the last five minutes of baking to brown
*FODMAP Swaps: Start with ⅔ cup whole wheat and use a variety of other flours like white whole wheat, bread or all-purpose flour and gradually increase the whole flour portion as tolerated
