How to Prepare Olive Oil Bread Rolls [Vegan]

  1. In a big bowl place yeast and pour water and whisk until dissolved.
  2. Gradually add sifted flour, salt, and garlic powder. At first, work with an eggbeater and then with your hands. Add oil and knead the dough. Add olives and rosemary.
  3. Shape dough into a ball and put it in the oven (in the bowl) at 120°F for 40 minutes. The dough will start to inflate. Remove from the oven and shape into six bread rolls.
