Bread for Supper? Honey Quinoa Wheat Rolls

August 2, 2011

Bread for supper? Before you dismiss this idea as crazy or lazy, let me explain.

In the January/February 2011 issue of Kosher Inspired magazine, Sima Feiger offered a recipe for Honey Quinoa Rolls along with the observation that “Because quinoa is a complete protein, I am happy if my children eat one of these rolls even for dinner with some cucumber sticks and hummus. The kids are thrilled to have ‘challah’ as their meal, so it’s a win-win situation for everyone!”

This observation particularly resonated with me because my daughter is never so happy as when she has a big chunk of challah to eat.

With a simple green salad (or a more main dish salad–I have a nice salad with feta, chickpeas, and sunflower seeds that I am planning on making for dinner) and some bought Sabra salads (hummus, matboucha, etc.), bread really can be dinner.

I made my own variation on Sima’s recipe, and it worked like a charm with my daughter. She ran to get a piece of bread the minute she walked in the door and she ended up eating almost two rolls.
