These potato rolls taste a lot better than they look!

These photographs don’t do justice to the recipe for Potato Rolls.

Blame me for being impatient, non-creative and downright lazy for that.

But please, do not turn away from making these damningly delicious potato bread rolls! 😀  Potato Rolls Recipe | Easy Vegan Potato Bread

On it’s own, I’d ay these rolls are fine. But paired with a spicy soup like my Moroccan chickpea soup or Mexican lentil soup – you’ve got a whole meal! Unlike regular bread, these potato rolls are denser. The dough is much more sticky and I’d be surprised if you didn’t make a mess! 😀 But I guess its all worth the troubles, for you have just made the best potato rolls ever!

Mix well with a fork and continue to knead for 15 minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic. (I kneaded with my hands. But it was very messy. If you have an electric mixer / food processor, you can just knead your dough in that. Resist the urge to add more flour even if the dough is very sticky. Instead, use more oil to prevent the dough from sticking to your hands). Place in well oiled bowl.

Cover and place in warm spot for 1-2 hours. The dough won’t double completely, but it will rise and look significantly plump

If you want to shape like a loaf, you can do so. But I simply divided the dough into equal portions, rolled and placed in the disposable baking paper molds.

Again cover and let the potato rolls rise for 30-45 minutes.

  1. I made this in a loaf pan and it turned out great. My mashed potatoes were made without dairy, as we have someone in the family who has a food allergy. They were made with chicken broth and vegan butter and olive oil and garlic, so the bread had amazing flavor, but as a result, I left some of these ingredients out of the recipe since they were already in there. I made it again last night. This is so easy and a keeper. I brushed the top and sprinkled “Everything but the Bagel” seasoning on the top.
