BURGER BUNS, without animal fat.

I had in my mind the idea to make some burger buns.

Searching on the web I
mainly found recipes with milk and butter and because i wanted to knead this kind of bread without butter and milk, I tried to create a recipe that would give approximately the same result without the use of these ingredients.

So I decided to replace the butter with a blend of extra virgin olive oil and egg whites, and instead of milk I put just water.

Finally, I garnished them with seeds of teff (Eragrostis tef) instead of the usual sesame seeds of the sandwiches of the famous fast food chains.
This time the experiment at has succeeded on the first attempt.
