Mouthwatering Anise seed dinner rolls, you need nothing else.
Add 1 packet yeast, 1 T sugar and 1/2 C water just hot enough to tolerate on your inner wrist. Set aside until it is topped with a thick frothy foam.
Heat 1 T anise seed in 1/4 c oil.
Sift 4 c flour with yeast mixture and oil mixture, add 1/4 c milk/soy or rice milk.
Mix until it no longer stick to spoon. Knead until springs back.
Raise for 2 hours. Punch down, form into 2 inch balls and place in oiled baking pan. Raise for 1/2 hour. Bake for 1/2 hour or until the faint hint of sweet licorice fills the air.
For a breadeater like me maybe this will be enough, but just in case it isn’t:
Add some baked chicken thighs rubbed down gently with a little salt, garlic and oil. Include some rice and spring smelling red leaf lettuce tossed with oranges, Kalamata olives and a light vinaigrette dressing.
Add your heart and soul and your meal is complete.
