These delicious sourdough dinner rolls with Himalayan Tartary Buckwheat rock lunches, dinners, appetizers, snacks. Think soups, salads, party trays, mini-sandwich bites.

I’m such a huge fan of homemade sourdough bread that it’s about the only bread I eat these days. I keep the starter going year-round for slews of tasty recipes, including these rolls, which are like tiny little loaves in and of themselves.

They rock with soups, salads, mini sandwich bites, vegan croutons. They’re also a go-to for appetizer trays with yummy plant-based dips.

The best part, though, is that sourdough bread is immensely healthy. That rich zingy tang you get from the fermentation process uploads scores of healthy microbiotics to your gut, such as lactobacillus, lactococcus, aerococcus, on and on.

It also boosts vitamins, minerals, polyphenols, and boatloads of anti-inflammatory compounds.

One study notes that “The natural fermentation process in sourdough breadmaking helps patients with gastrointestinal disorders, e.g., irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and also patients with celiac disease, e.g., gluten intolerance.”

On top of that, when you use the best flours ever, such as Himalayan Tartary Buckwheat (HTB), chickpea, sorghum, and rye, it multiplies the quality and nutrient-density of your rolls.

You can get HTB flour here.

This recipe is organic, vegan, and gluten-free.

Sourdough dinner rolls are delicious.

There are three kinds of starters you can use in this recipe: sponge starters, commercial, and wild yeast made from scratch.

The latter takes the longest, days to weeks, while sponge and prepackaged reduce timeline. You can also keep a starter going for months on end.

If you don’t want to make the starter from scratch you can get it on Thrive Market or Amazon.

Sourdough Dinner Rolls Wild Yeast Starter

Refrigerated starters boost crustiness.

Wild yeast starters can take days to weeks, but the longer they ferment the tastier.

Overnight refrigeration yields crustier rolls.



  • Combine the water and flour in a mixing bowl, stir well, then knead until smooth on a non-floured wooden board, roughly 3-5 minutes.
  • Return to bowl and cover tightly with a towel or cheesecloth.
  • Leave at room temperature for 12/15 hours, then add another 1/2 cup flour and 1/4 cup lukewarm water and mix thoroughly (called feeding the starter).
  • Cover and rest again for another 12-15 hours, repeating another time for 24 hours. If it’s risen and bubbly repeat the process a couple more times—or longer for richer rolls—then taper down to a 12 then 4-8 hour window, tightly covering so no air gets in.
  • When it’s ready it should be bubbly with a tangy smell.


  • Starter should be used for making bread or rolls within four to eight hours after last feeding.
  • To maintain a starter feed twice daily at 12-hour intervals.
  • For longer maintenance refrigerate and feed once a week. Mature starters can survive longer with no feeding.

  • When it’s tripled in size and starting to collapse, use immediately or feed again with flour and water.
  • Cooled sponge starters straight from the fridge must be combined with warm water in final dough recipes (105-115 F).
