Hemp seed Soda Bread Rolls -vegan, yeast free

Just waiting to be dunked into homemade soup...
We were both tired after a crowded Saturday afternoon's shopping in Birmingham, we had yet to go on our run and were also facing a drive later to pick up our daughter from her friend's house, so dinner had to be a simple affair. While I donned my leggings and grabbed my running shoes, my husband got busy with a pumpkin and chickpea soup and also somehow found time to rustle up these rolls to go with it. They are a variation on his soda ciabatta bread and take just minutes to prepare. The hemp seeds add their own special subtle flavour, plus some useful omega oils. What a warming, delicious feast awaited us when we got back from running!

(Makes 8-10 rolls)
500ml (about 2 cups) wholemeal flour
500ml white flour
100ml shelled hemp seeds
4 tsps baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
15ml extra-virgin olive oil
soya milk to mix
  • Mix together the dry ingredients in a large bowl.
  • Rub in the olive oil.
  • Add just enough soya milk to make a workable dough that's not too wet and sticky.
  • Dampen your hands and roll into 8-10 balls, then place on a warmed and lightly oiled baking sheet, Bake in an oven preheated to 180C for 15 minutes until they are starting to turn light golden-brown on top.
