Method

  1. Grease or line a large baking tray.
  2. Slice or chop the onion. Cook the onion in dairy free margarine until soft and golden. Leave to cool.
  3. Mix together the gluten free flour, cornflour, ground almonds, xanthan gum, psyllium husk, salt, caster sugar, yeast and mixed herbs in a large bowl.
  4. Pour the liquid into the flour and beat until smooth. The mixture should just be able to fall from the spoon.
  5. Stir in the cooked onion.
  6. Use an ice cream scoop or a large spoon. Dip into a jug of water to stop the mixture sticking. Scoop mixture and place onto the baking tray to make 8 rolls, leave space in between to allow for the rolls to rise.
  7. Wet your fingers and mould each roll into the shape required.
  8. Leave in a warm place to prove for 30 minutes.
  9. Preheat the oven to 200°c / 400°f / gas mark 6.
