Rosemary Sweet Potato Rolls (Vegan)

Oh, the joy of side-dishes. These rolls are soft, lightly sweet, savory, and incredibly delicious. These sweet potato infused rolls of deliciousness create a perfect blend of flavors. Enjoy these rolls with vegan margarine, butter, or some jam.


1 tablespoon instant yeast
1/2 cup warm almond milk (not hot, yet warm to touch)
1/2 cup cooked and mashed sweet potato
2 tablespoons oil, plus some for brushing
2 flax-eggs (requires 2 tablespoons of flaxseed meal and 6 tablespoons of water)
3 to 3 and 1/2 cups all purpose flour (Bob's Red Mill)
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons dried rosemary
2 tablespoons sesame seeds and/or chia seeds for sprinkling


Following these instructions exactly will provide the best results.

1. In a bowl, make your flax eggs by mixing two tablespoons of flax seed meal with 6 tablespoons of water. Stir until well-mixed and let the mixture sit until gooey. This takes about 10 minutes.
2. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the yeast and warm almond milk. Let sit for a few minutes until the mixture is foamy (if the mixture does not foam, your milk may have been too hot or your yeast is no longer active). 

3. Add in the mashed sweet potato, oil, and flax seed mixture to the yeast. Mix well.
4. In a large mixing bowl, combine the rosemary, salt, and flour. Once combined, add in the wet ingredients from Step 3. Mix well.
5. On a clean, and lightly floured surface, begin kneeading the dough by hand for about 5 minutes. The dough should be smooth and somewhat tacky. Add more flour or water as needed.
6. Return the dough to the large mixing bowl. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place for 1 and 1/2 hours or until the dough has doubled in size.
7. Punch down the dough and divide the dough into 12 equal sized pieces. Place the rolls in a greased 9x13 pan, leaving 1 inch between each roll. Cover the pan with plastic wrap and let the rolls rise in a warm place for another 1/2 hour.

8. When doubled in size (do not worry if the rolls are now touching as they will still keep their shape), brush the tops of the rolls with oil and sprinkle sesame seeds or chia seeds on top.
9. Bake the rolls for 18 minutes at 400 degrees. The rolls will be a golden color on top.
10. Serve the rolls warm with vegan margarine, butter, or jam. Enjoy!
