In a bowl whisk together the flour, yeast, and salt.
Make a well in the center and add to it the sugar, oil, and water.
Stir to combine.
Knead the dough on a floured surface for about 10 minutes until smooth and elastic. Feed it more flour as needed to get it no longer sticky. You will need about 1 additional cup of flour but this amount will vary.
Place in a greased bowl and cover. Let rise until doubled, about 1 hour in a warm place.
Punch down and divide into 9 equal sized rolls. Shape them out into smooth topped balls and place them into a greased 8x8 or 9x9 square baking dish.
Cover again and let rise until doubled in size. About another hour.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and bake your dinner rolls for 15 minutes or until tops are lightly golden.
Brush top with vegan butter spread or olive oil immediately after removing from the oven for that nice golden color.
