Lazy dinner day.
I'm embarrassed to tell you last night I served soup out of a box.
In all fairness.. it was organic, and expensive for soup in a box.
The Boyfriend didn't like it.
But I didn't make it! :)
Anyway, to make up for this soup, I figured I'd make some homemade rolls and a nice salad.
I used Bobby Flay's recipe for Parker House Rolls, and once I got halfway through I realized I didn't have any all-purpose flour.
What I did have was whole wheat flour and quinoa flour. Maybe this is a sign. Healthier rolls!!
So I subbed ALL the flour in Bobby Flay's recipe. I used 5 cups whole wheat flour and 1 cup quinoa flour.
The rolls came out nice and buttery.
I won't lie to you- they were a little dense. But only a little.
The rolls were good when warmed a little in the microwave. But I wouldn't make them the same way again.
Why am I bothering with this posting then, you ask?
Because despite being a bit dense, this is an excellent and easy recipe for rolls. The reason for the denseness is because of the flours I used. I'm not going to post the recipe, because I don't want you to do what I did.
Try Bobby Flay's recipe. If you want to make it healthier, sub HALF of the flour with whole wheat flour, but no more than that. I did add 1 tsp of garlic powder to the dough for garlicky rolls. I do recommend!
