home made vegan buns with pumpkin seeds served with butter

How to make it 

The night before

  1. Mix water with yeast in a bowl
  2. Add seeds, oats, yoghurt, beetroot and mix it all up
  3. Add your flower and mix it nicely. Then add salt — The dough should be sticky and thick
  4. Cover your bowl with dough and put in the fridge for the next morning

The next morning

  1. Turn your oven on 200 degrees (hot air/varmeluft), and make your buns. Here I usually have a bowl with cold water in, for my hands, so I wont get all the sticky dough on my hands. Note: one bun should be a small handful
  2. Place them on a tray and let them raise for 20–30 minutes.
  3. Add some pumpkin seeds if you want on top, and give them 15 minutes in the oven
