"Focaccia" Rolls and Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato Soup





"Focaccia" Rolls and Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato Soup

1 cup. Pacific brand Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato Soup, 1 Focaccia Roll = 200 calories

I've been craving the focaccia that I love so much, but I also wanted to slim it down. So I cut the original recipe in half, except for the oil, I used 2 tablespoons in the dough, and then 1/2 teaspoon to grease the pan and another 1/2 to pat on top of the rolls. This made 16 rolls, 90 calories each, but the flavor just isn't the same. They don't have the slightly sweet flavor of the original, and they have a somewhat bitter aftertaste - I'm guessing that comes from a lack of the olive oil. So, that's what I get for not kneading them by hand. My KitchenAid just wasn't a match for this dough.

At least the soup was good.
