Do you ever wait until the last minute and realize you need to come up with dinner quick? I make good use of my slow cooker (these slow cooker cabbage rolls are amazing) most of the time, but these make a nice and easy side when you’re short on time.
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.
Quick No Rise Dinner Rolls
2 ½ cups warm water
3 Tablespoons sugar or honey (I use organic evaporate cane juice sugar)
3 Tablespoons yeast
2 Tablespoons olive oil or melted butter or coconut oil
6 cups flour (I use half spelt and half organic hard white wheat freshly ground at home)
2 teaspoons sea salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon Italian herb mixture (or any mix of organic herbs you have at home. I grow my own and dry them or order from our affiliate partner Mountain Rose Herbs for GMO-Free and organic herbs at amazingly low prices)
Knead for 5 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. (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?
