Lentil Rye Rolls adapted from Dan Lepard

The lentils are cooked until soft, but not mushy, before added to the dough so that they incorporate well and bake moistly. You can also use canned lentils here. With a perfect crust and tender crumb, these lentil rye rolls are wonderful with soup or salad for a satisfying and healthy meal. If you want to freeze the bread, cool them completely first, then transfer to a Ziploc bag, press out any excess air, and seal. Reheat them at 180C/350F for about 10 minutes.

  • 200 g German #550 flour
  • 50 g Rye flour #1150
  • 5 g Salt
  • 1 tbsp Olive oil
  1. Beat the cooked lentils with the water, yeast and honey, and leave aside. In a large bowl combine flours with the salt, then pour the lentil mixture in. Mix ttp://iuntil a soft and sticky dough forms. Cover with a plastic wrap and leave for 10 minutes.
  2. Rub 1 teaspoon of olive oil on the work surface and knead the dough on the oiled surface for 10 seconds, ending with the dough in a smooth, round ball. Clean and dry the bowl, then rub lightly with a teaspoon of olive oil. Return the dough to the bowl, cover, and leave for an additional 10 minutes. Remove the dough and knead once more on the oiled surface, returning the shape of the dough to a smooth round ball. Place it back in the bowl, cover, and leave for 1 hour in a warm place.
  3. Lightly flour a parchment paper and roll the dough into a sheet, about 10 x 8 inch. Cover the surface of the dough with a cloth and leave for 1 hour, or until almost doubled in height. Preheat the oven to 210C410F. Uncover the dough and cut into 16 squares. Bake in the center of the oven for 25 minutes, or until the tops of the rolls are golden brown and feel light.
