Savory Gluten-Free Rolls

In the oven RIGHT NOW are some yummy gluten-free rolls! I never thought I would be putting the words "yummy" and "gluten-free" in the same sentence - but I'm pretty sure I've only had bad gluten-free bread in the past. I'm a believer now! These rolls have sold me - and they are sooo easy to make.

Here is my version of a recipe I got from this gal I've been cooking for:

Makes 1 dozen rolls

1 1/2 c warm water (almost as warm as you can stand for about 20 seconds)
1 tsp whole cane sugar
2 1/4 tsp active dry yeast (one package)
3 Tbsp agave necter
3 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp  raw apple cider vinegar (any other plain vinegar works in a pinch)
1 c sorghum flour
1/2 c brown rice flour
1/2 c teff flour
1/2 c arrowroot flour
1/2 c tapioca flour
1 1/2 tsp xanthan gum
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 c chopped fresh garlic
2-3 Tbsp Italian seasoning or 1 Tbsp each basil and oregano

- Oil a 12-cup muffin tin. Find a warm place to proof the rolls (the oven set at about 200 works, as does a food dehydrator set at the same temp.)
- Stir the warm water, sugar and yeast together in a small bowl. Set aside while you mix together the dry ingredients.
- In a large bowl, combine all of the dry ingredients (leaving out the chopped garlic). Whisk together to completely combine.
- To the small bowl with the liquids - add the agave syrup, olive oil, and vinegar. Stir well to combine.
- Pour the wet ingredients over the dry ingredients and quickly whisk together. Continue to whisk to get rid of any lumps and keep whisking until the batter thickens and becomes smooth.
- Quickly add the chopped garlic and stir until just combined. (You want to work quickly after all the ingredients have been added together, otherwise you might loose the little air bubbles that are being created by the baking soda and the vinegar.)
- Spoon into the oiled muffin tin. Set in a warm place to rise for about 20 minutes.
- Bake in a preheated oven at 375 for 20-25 minutes (or until the tops are golden brown).
- Allow rolls to cool for a few minutes before removing from pan (a knife may need to be run around the edge of each roll to loosen.)
- Enjoy with butter, soup or salad or make each roll into a little mini sandwich!

Let me know what you think of these rolls! I just love them...
