Christmas is just around the corner and you’ve probably already done all your errands. Or is it not?
Most people have already thought about this year’s Christmas menu and the side dishes tend to be neglected. Wait a minute! Side dishes – neglected? Impossible? Because that’s what makes a Christmas menu really complete!
Do not worry. I have something for you guys. Very simple, not time-consuming, because it is almost done unnoticed 😉. I’ve thought of a couple of rolls. But not just any rolls. No, vegan with vegan “grated cheese”.
The taste is incredible and even convinced non-vegans during the test meal. So I can confidently give you this recipe with the stamp “taste approved” 😅. Enjoy it and Bon Appetite.
Super simple, vegan cheese rolls as a pull-apart Christmas tree. Really delicious for the holidays and incredibly quick!
- 700 g spelt flour – can be substituded with wheat for the dough
- 1 cube of fresh yeast (40 g)⎪ for the dough
- 2 tbsp brown sugar ⎪ for the dough
- 50 g olive oil ⎪ for the dough
- 360 g lukewarm water ⎪ for the dough
- 1 pinch of salt ⎪ for the dough
- 1 pack of grated vegan “cheese” – I used Violife
- 1 handful of fresh basil
- Sesame to decorate
- Pomegranate seeds for decoration – optional
In a bowl or with a food processor, process all the ingredients for the dough into a smooth mass and cover with a kitchen towel in a bowl and let rise for an hour in a warm place.
Finely chop the basil.
Preheat the oven to 530℉/280℃.
Place the dough on a floured work surface and roll out flat.
Now cover with the “cheese” and basil and fold the dough again. Roll out again and repeat 3 times.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Shape the dough into about 15-20 small balls and place on a baking sheet. Just being ready for Christmas, I made it in the shape of a Christmas tree (see picture).
Sprinkle with sesame seeds and bake for about 15 minutes.
As soon as the rolls are ready, serve them warm and garnish with pomegranate seeds and fresh basil.
