Vivid Green Spinach and Cheese Bread Rolls

Vivid Green Spinach and Cheese Bread Rolls

This bread roll is so nutritious with cheese and spinach.
I think even people who do not like spinach can still eat this.
The dough is easy to work with because it uses less butter.

Ingredients: 6 bread rolls

Strong bread flour
250 g
★ Spinach
1 bunch (100 g after blanching)
★ Water (refer to Helpful Hints)
70 g
★ Milk (refer to Helpful Hints)
40 g
★ Sugar
20 ~ 25 g (I used 20 g)
★ Salt
3 g
Dry yeast
3 g
Butter (at room temperature)
5 g
Processed cheese or cheese for pizza
72 g


1. This time I'm showing how to make this recipe by hand, but of course you can also use a bread maker.☆
2. Blanch the spinach and squeeze out the water. Put it in a food processor with the milk and make a paste.
3. Take 2 tablespoons from the water and dissolve the yeast. Put the ★ ingredients and spinach paste in a bowl and whisk well.
4. Add the bread flour and dissolved yeast, using a pastry scraper, and mixing with a cutting motion. Once the dough has come together, place on a work surface and knead well.
5. Knead for about 10 minutes. Take the butter, which has been softened at room temperature, and place it in the middle of the dough. Wrap the dough around the butter and knead some more. It will be hard to knead at first, but it should gradually become easier.
6. Knead 10 minutes more until the surface turns smooth. Form into a ball and place in a bowl greased with oil (not listed).
7. Let the dough rise. Please be careful that it does not dry out. The dough has risen enough once it doubles in size, and a hollow remains after you poke a floured finger into the middle.
8. Divide the dough into 8 portions and punch each portion down,then shape them into round balls. Cover them with a moistened kitchen towel and allow to rest for 15 minutes.
9. Once again, punch each portion down, and then flatten them out. Wrap 9g of cheese or 1 tablespoon of pizza cheese in each ball. Seal the seams well.
10. Let them rise again in a warm place. Be careful they do not dry out. When they have doubled in size, they are proved.
11. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 200°C. Turn down to 180°C, and bake for about 15 minutes. Cool on a wire wrack.
12. Store in an air-tight bag and put in the freezer. When you want one, just microwave and the inside will turn soft.

Story Behind this Recipe

My father has bread and fruit almost every morning, so I made this recipe to improve his vegetable intake for breakfast.
