Do you ever wait until the last minute and realize you need to come up with dinner quick? Spaghetti is my go to, but I realized I didn’t have any bread or rolls to serve with it.
Normally, I always have homemade bread on hand from my No Knead Bake Bread in Less than 5 Minutes a Day method. Now if only I could find a no knead and no rise recipe!
Except I forgot to set out a new batch of dough to rise and dinner was less than an hour away. For those of you who happen to be forgetful every now and then like me, here’s my no rise quick dinner roll recipe.
2 ½ C warm water
3 Tbsp sugar (I use raw sugar)
3 Tbsp yeast
2 Tbsp olive oil
6 C flour (I use half whole wheat pastry and half unbleached white flour)
2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
Stir water, yeast, and sugar together. Leave for 5 minutes until it becomes frothy on top. Add oil, flour, salt and baking powder and mix well. Remember to always use glass, wooden, or plastic bowls and spoons when making bread. Metal inhibits the yeast from rising properly.
Knead for 6-8 minutes on floured surface. Form half of dough into a loaf. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon Italian herb mixture (or herbs of your choice) onto dough and knead until mixed. Form rolls and place on a pizza stone. Bake rolls at 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes. Leave bread for another 5 -10 minutes. (I found the original recipe here, but altered it for a healthier version)
I highly recommend you use a pizza stone for baking all your breads, a pizza stone is like the difference in texture you get when using cast iron. Nothing will turn out better bread than a stone. You care and use your stone the same way you would use cast iron in the above link.
What is your go to dinner for those nights when you’re out of time but don’t want to sacrifice taste?
