Nutritional values

The delicious combination of whole-wheat spelt flour and hearty buckwheat provides this aromatic bread with tons of fiber, which is good for digestion and keeps your blood sugar levels stable. Whole grains are also rich in vitamin B1, which is beneficial for the brain and nervous system.

For more variation, replace half of the dried tomatoes with chopped olives or walnuts. Both provide additional unsaturated fatty acids.

Preparation steps

Tomato-Herb Bread Rolls preparation step 1

Place 5.5 ounces lukewarm water in a small bowl. Crumble in the yeast, stir thoroughly, cover and let stand about 10 minutes.

Place the flour in a mixing bowl and make a well in the center. Pour honey into the well and add salt to the edge.

Pour yeast mixture into the well and knead with dough hook of a hand mixer to form a smooth, shiny dough. Cover with a kitchen towel and let rise in a warm place about 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, soak the sun-dried tomatoes in a small bowl with 3 tablespoons of hot water.
