Tasty Saturday Lunch
One of our favourite lunches on Saturday is soup and bread. We really like rolls to go with lunch and these are easy to mix up in the bread maker as dough and then shaped and baked in the oven for 15 minutes.
550g flour (I use a mixture of white and wholemeal)
300ml rice milk
2 tsps sugar
50ml warm water
Add the sugar to the warm water and stir in 1 tsp yeast. Put to one side to froth and tip all the other ingredients into the bread maker. You can just use a bowl if you haven't got a bread maker. Add the yeast once it is active. Put the bread maker on the DOUGH setting and wait. Knead for 10 minutes if using the bowl method and leave to rise for 1 hour.
Once the dough is ready turn onto a floured board and cut into 12 equal pieces. Roll into round shapes and place on an oiled baking sheet to rise. Cover with a cloth to prevent drying out. ( I put mine in the airing cupboard as it is nice and warm there in the Winter !) Leave to rise for 30 minutes and then bake in the oven at 200C for 15 minutes.
Add your soup of choice ! This is lentil and tomato which I froze earlier. Soup and rolls makes a good tasty Winter lunch and are easy to prepare whilst you are doing other things around the house and garden.
