My private practice invited me to produce some food as a bribe for good marks. And I am nothing if not dedicated! So I came up with these little pockets of delight. The original recipe is here: http://torviewtoronto.blogspot.com/2010/12/garlic-buns.html I made a few adjustments. To one I used basil instead of the coriander and the other I changed the filling entirely and used sun-dried tomato and Parmesan. The ones with butter end up super crunchy and are great hot. The ones without keep better if you aren’t using them straight away. Here’s the recipe:
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 tbsp yeast
- 1 tbsp sugar
- 1 tbsp oil
- 2 tbsp butter
- Handful basil
- 3 tbsp minced garlic
- 1/4 cup sun-dried tomato strips
- 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
- Mix the yeast, sugar and 1 tbsp water
- Seperately mix the flour, oil, water and salt. Then add yeast mixture. Mix until smooth and sticky.
- Knead for 5 mins (I probs only did for 1-2mins).
- Leave in a covered greased bowl to rise for an hour.
- Roll out into a rectangle and cover with filling of choice. If you do this onto a piece of glad wrap it makes the next step easier!
- Roll the rectangle into a cylander and slice into scrolls. Let rest (recommended 2o mins but works with less_
- Put into a preheated 180 degree oven for 30 minutes
Enjoy. By the way- these were effective bribes- top marks for that part of my assessment!
