Rustica Buns

So, you’ve got a great veggie burger – but what are you going to eat it on? A Rustica Bun, of course!

My bread machine doesn’t get as much love as it should. To remedy that, I decided to make some buns to go with my Pesto Veggie Burgers. This recipe also comes from the Best Veggie Burgers on the Planet cookbook.

They were delicious! Crumbly, dense, and flavorful – they made a perfect compliment to the pesto veggie burger. These buns definitely reminded me of a “rustic” recipe; I felt sort of like I was eating at Cracker Barrel.

They were easy to make, too. I just added all of the ingredients to my bread machine and ran it through the dough cycle. Then I removed the dough, split it into portions, and formed rolls. Bake and eat! I may or may not have devoured one of these straight out of the oven.
