GF Vegan Crescent Rolls With Ramsons Filling (aka Ramp)

March 27, 2020
Don't know about you, dear readers, but for me the quarantine has been very challenging. Eating out was always difficult as a vegetarian with celiac disease but now that everything is closed down, I have to learn to bake. Cooking? Easy for me, I've been doing it since I was 13 years old, but baking is another thing. Especially baking gluten-free. If you've ever tried it, you know what I am talking about. The dough just doesn't behave like a "normal" dough, or you must use a lot of additional ingredients like Xanthan gum and things I don't even know how to pronounce. Honestly I am not sure that they are healthy ingredients.

But it was incredibly easy to work with this dough, so this will be my go to recipe from now. The delicate, garlicky flavor of ramsons (also known as ramp in the U.S.) is especially delicious folded into the roll. Enjoy!

1. Put the lukewarm milk in a mug with the pinch of sugar and the yeast. Let it rest until the yeast comes up.

2. In a mixing bowl, mix together flour with 250g of margarine, then add the soy milk-yeast mixture, vegan sour cream, egg replacement and mix it well together with your hands (if you have a machine, perfectly fine with that too).

3. Cover it and let it rest for about 40 minutes.

4. Preheat the oven to 180°C degree.

5. Once the dough rises, place some extra flour on a flat surface and roll out the dough.

6. With a knife cut crosses on the dough to get triangle shapes

7. Mix together the 110g melted margarine and the sliced ransoms, and place it on the top of the dough and pick up one triangle and roll it up to get a crescent. Roll up every triangle. Place parchment paper on a baking tray, and place the crescents on it.

8. Bake them for about 25 minutes.

If you want to keep some for later, cover them with a tea towel to keep them soft.
