At last, one of my most popular recipes on this site – the potato flour bread roll, is now available in vegan form. Same recipe, just adjusted for the plant based eater. Can you have your cake and eat it too? Yes, you can. These vegan potato flour bread rolls aren’t skipping a beat. The same lightness, the same airy dough still make this recipe the perfect bread roll, even with out the eggs.
As I discovered in another bread recipe from our site, the 3-Kings Bread rolls, airy and light texture in breads doesn’t need to be sacrificed just because your diet has changed. Were these rolls exactly the same as the recipe with eggs? Maybe not exactly, but pretty darn close. The qualities of light, airy and delicious were all present. Again the highlight of this recipe I believe is the potato flour. I’m guessing it’s the added starch from the potato flour which gives it the dimensional of lightness. But, it’s still a great side-dish to serve on the holiday table.
Another great thought to this recipe is the sweet glaze you paint on the top before the bake. In the vegan form, it’s a mixture of agave and water, in the regular recipe, it’s honey and water. Both give a nice subtle finish of sweetness. If you want to take it one step further, feel free to make a sweet plant-based buttery spread to enjoy on the fresh, warm roll.
