Sun Dried Tomato, Onion and Garlic Bread Rolls GF SCD

Grain and Gluten Free Sun Dried Tomato, Onion and Garlic Bread Rolls

We watched a documentary last year showing how they undertook the most challenging big cat rescue ever, saving 13 lions from shocking conditions in the run down Oradea Zoo in Romania. The cats were rehabilitated and released into a 9 acre reserve at the end of May 2010. We decided to visit the Yorkshire Wildlife Park this year as part of my birthday celebrations, it was a fantastic day out.

Thankful to have some beautiful weather, seeing the lions in "natural" surroundings as well as the other animals at the park was an amazing experience and we even managed to catch a glimpse of one of the two tigers that had arrived at the park earlier this year.

Since we decided to take a picnic I made SCD bread rolls that we could all enjoy.

  1. Hi, just saw your link at heart and soul blog hop. This recipe sounds great. I am too tempted. Can't wait to try this recipe!

  2. Hey, looks awesome. Can't wait to try it out. Thanks for writing this blog, I'm soo happy to see a SCD community. Have a nice day.

  3. My husband likes veggie burgers, but I refuse to buy the premade ones from the store telling him that "meat free does not equal healthy!" I love this recipe - so many delicious and healthy ingredients and I can see how the nuts would be the glue that would hold it all together. Thanks for sharing this recipe with the Hearth and Soul Hop.

  4. these sound great and nutritious thanks

  5. I came back to wish you a happy birthday and realized that I had a mistake. I totally saw that these were baked but in a muffin pan, but I thought brilliant idea - don't know why I kept thinking patty instead of bun, but I did. However, my mistake has got the wheels turning for recipe ideas for my husband.

    And happy birthday!

  10. I love the combination of these flavours!!!
    I would just need to sub the eggs ~ and I can just imagine them being so tasty! ;)

  11. Thank you Ella - they will work without eggs but use a little less of the nut flour, something to bind and a tablespoon of organic cider vinegar!

    Have a lovely day x

  12. I am gluten free but eat meat. After they were baked I cut each loaf in half and then sliced it to make buns for turkey burgers. This was a lot of bread. In the future I would only eat 1/2 and share with someone. Thanks for the great recipe...vka

  13. sorry. I baked this recipe in 2 loaf pans. vka

    1. Glad you liked them! Thank you for the letting me know! It's a while since I made them you've reminded me to make them again :)
