VEGAN One Hour Soft Dinner Rolls


  • 3/4 cup Warm Water not too hot
  • 1-1/2 tsp Active Dry Yeast
  • 1 tbsp Vegan Margarine softened
  • 1-1/2 tsp Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 2 cup All Purpose Flour plus some for your work surface
  • 1 tbsp Melted Vegan Margarine for brushing
  • sprinkle Sea Salt


  • In the bowl of an electric mixer, add the yeast, sugar and warm water.  Be sure the water is not too hot or too cold or the yeast will not bloom.  
  • Once the yeast is foamy (about 5 minutes), add the vegan margarine, salt and flour.  Mix until just combined.  Do not over beat!  If the dough is too sticky, add just a bit more flour (but not too much).
  • Add some flour to your surface and knead the dough until smooth, about 3 minutes or so.  Be sure not to incorporate too much additional flour.  Let rise for 20 minutes, covered in a warm place.  
  • After 20 minutes, lightly punch down the dough and divide into 9 equal portions and roll into smooth balls.  Place into a pan sprayed with cooking spray, cover and allow to rise for 15-20 minutes.
  • Once risen, brush with melted butter and sprinkle with sea salt.  
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until just golden on top.  Don't over bake.  
  • Brush with additional melted vegan margarine, if desired.


The less flour you have to incorporate after mixing the better.   Adding too much additional flour will make them a bit tougher.
