Quinoa Dinner Rolls


I had some leftover savory cinnamon quinoa pilaf from dinner last night and found a recipe for quinoa dinner rolls. Sounded like the perfect accompaniment to a steaming bowl of sweet potato soup. And it was! Delicious and pillowy soft.
 
1 C cooked quinoa (I used a pilaf that had olive oil in it, so I didn't add any other oils)
2 C hot water
3 tsp smoked salt
2 T active dry yeast
1/2 C ginger syrup (or use honey)
4 C white whole wheat flour
2 C dark rye flour
butter


Place the hot water in a large mixing bowl, sprinkling the yeast on top. Let bloom for five minutes. Add ginger syrup (or honey) and salt. Add the cooked quinoa and flours. Blend until well combined. Knead for 3-5 minutes until it is smooth and soft. Oil the dough and the bowl, cover and let rise in a warm spot for 35-45 minutes. Once it has risen, punch it down again and shape handfuls of dough into balls. Place the balls in a buttered baking dish, cover, and let rise again - for 10-15 minutes. Preheat the oven to 425.

Bake the rolls for 15 minutes at 425. Reduce the heat to 375 and bake for another 15 minutes. Remove the baking pan from the oven and rub the rolls with stick of butter. Pull apart and serve.
