Perfect for your body and soul..
This gluten free recipe can be served as a breakfast, appetizers or snacks. With some bechamel sauce, it can be lunch too. The only thing you actually have to do is a dough. The flavor of the flowers depends on what you like to eat. You can make it with meat, or vegetables… I really love cheese, so one of the flowers in my garden must include at least one kind of hard cheese.
How to prepare the dough? One more thing that makes this recipe more easy and lovable is that you don’t have to wait for the dough to rise! Also one of the best things is that you can make different types of dough, depending on your taste or needs. Ingredients I put this time are 1 egg, 1tbsp sour cream, 70g butter, a pinch of salt, 6 tbsp bread mix flour. I used Schar Mix B, bread mix flour. All you have to do is to mix all ingredients and using your hands, knead the dough. Then roll the dough and cut it in strips.
Another variant is to avoid eggs and lactose if you have allergies or you don’t eat it. In that case, you should put only water, flour, salt and lactose free butter, or lard. The proportions are 100ml water, 200g bread mix flour and 1tbsp lactose free butter, or lard. You can always add some extra flour to get nonsticky flour that you can roll.
As I said, flavor depends on what you want to eat. I made meat flowers, one with sausage one with ham. One cheese flower with hard cheese (you can put whatever kind of hard cheese you like), and few with vegetables (tomato, eggplant, onion).
The last step is to preheat the oven to 250ºC and bake the flowers around 20 minutes.
