Healthy Halloween?: Vegan Pumpkin Bread Rolls
Trick or treat??
Every Halloween, I pull pranks on my dear husband. It is our way of celebrating the holiday??‍♀️. This time, I tricked him into thinking that these tasty treats were real pumpkins?.
Imagine his surprise when he bit into them. Each bite revealed fluffy, wholesome bread ? infused with delicious pumpkin puree.
He could not resist digging into three mini-buns in one sitting.
How did I conjure up these beauties?
I was inspired to whip up these festive buns after drooling over my pumpkin-filled social feed.
My version is a rendition of my mother’s?infamous dinner rolls. After a few healthy tweaks, I transformed her recipe into this adorable batch of vegan? pumpkin buns.
• 400 g bread flour
• 1 tsp salt
• 2 tsp cane sugar
• 2 tsp active dry yeast
• 250 g 100% natural pumpkin puree
• 90 ml almond milk (warm)
• 6 kitchen cooking twines
• A few splashes of almond milk
1. Sift and mix the dry ingredients in a big bowl.
2. Add pumpkin puree. Mix well.
3. Slowly pour the milk to get a soft, slightly sticky, and tacky dough.
4. Knead until the ingredients are well-combined. (Approx. 8 min)
5. Brush the bowl with oil before covering it with a plastic wrap and a tea towel to cover the bowl.
6. Set aside to rise in a warm place. (Approx. 2 hrs)
7. Sprinkle flour on the countertop and knead the risen dough into a big ball.
8. Divide it into 6 equal portions and shape them into smaller, smooth balls.
9. Grease twines with vegetable oil.
10. Wrap the kitchen twine around each dough ball to form 8 segments. (Avoid tying it too tightly)
11. Line a baking tray with parchment paper before assembling the pumpkin balls.
12. Maintain a 2” gap b/w each pumpkin ball.
13. Cover the tray with a tea towel. Set aside to rise. (30-40 min)
14. Brush the bread rolls with milk.
15. Preheat oven at 375° F.
16. Pop the baking tray into the warm oven.
17. Bake for approx. 10 min.
18. Once done, let your dinner rolls cool on a wire rack.
19. Cut the twine from the top and bottom, and then carefully pull it out from the back of the pumpkins.
