Put the water, flours, yeast and salt into the blender jar. Select Speed 4 and press Start. Blend until smooth, about 30 seconds.

Transfer the batter to a large mixing bowl. Add the Sourdough Starter and stir to combine. Add more bread flour and knead with floured hands until dough comes together into a smooth ball.  Cover with plastic wrap and allow to rest for 2 hours.

Sprinkle the cornmeal onto a rimmed baking sheet; reserve.

Transfer the dough to a lightly floured work surface. Cut the dough into 18 pieces of equal size and roll into smooth rounds. Place on the cornmeal-dusted baking sheet, cover with plastic wrap and allow to rise for 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 450°F with the rack in the middle position.

Once the dough is ready, bake until the tops of the rolls are nicely golden, about 20 minutes.

Allow to cool for a few minutes before serving.
