Steps to Wholesome Rolls:

  1. Prep Your Spinach: Start by washing the spinach leaves thoroughly. You can either chop them finely for a textured feel in your rolls or puree them for a smoother consistency. If opting for puree, blend the spinach with a bit of milk to help incorporate it easily into the dough.
  2. Mix Dry Ingredients: In a large bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt. If you’re adding sugar for a sweeter version of these rolls, mix it in with the dry ingredients.
  3. Combine Wet Ingredients: Make a well in the center of your dry ingredients and pour in the milk and vegetable oil or melted butter. Add your prepared spinach (chopped or pureed) to the mixture.
  4. Form the Dough: Stir everything together until just combined. It’s important not to overmix to keep the rolls tender. The dough should be soft and slightly sticky. If it’s too wet, add a little more flour; if too dry, a splash more milk.
  5. Shape the Rolls: On a lightly floured surface, gently knead the dough a few times, then divide into equal portions. Shape each portion into a ball. If the dough sticks to your hands, lightly flour them as you work.
  6. Cook Without an Oven: Heat a non-stick pan or skillet over low to medium heat. You can line it with parchment paper to prevent sticking. Place the rolls in the pan, leaving space between each for expansion. Cover with a tight lid to trap the steam.
  7. Steam Cook to Perfection: Cook the rolls for about 15-20 minutes. The steam will help them rise and cook through. Check for doneness by inserting a toothpick into the center of a roll; it should come out clean.
  8. Enjoy: Once cooked, remove the rolls from the pan and let them cool slightly on a wire rack. These spinach-infused rolls are deliciously served warm, offering a nutritious twist to your meals.

This innovative approach to baking rolls integrates the nutritional benefits of spinach with the simplicity of a no-yeast, no-oven method, making it an ideal recipe for health-conscious food lovers and home cooks seeking convenience and flavor.
