Breadsticks, and bread in general, are my dining experience. Especially unlimited bread bowls like at Olive Garden. I will be remaking Olive Garden’s salty, buttery, carb vehicles at home for my personal desire.
Vegan Breadsticks Recipe
2 tablespoons raw sugar
1 packet dry active yeast (about 2 teaspoons)
1 cup + 1 tablespoons warm water
1 cup whole wheat flour
2 cups bread flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup vegan butter
2 tablespoons vegan butter, melted
1 teaspoon garlic salt
Dissolve the sugar in warm water then stir in the yeast.
Let it sit in a warm place for 5 – 10 minutes until a foam forms on the top. (If it doesn’t, buy new yeast and start over).
Combine flour and salt in a large bowl. Use a wooden spoon to cut the vegan butter into the flour.
Stir in the wet ingredients, and then knead dough for 10 minutes on a lightly floured surface.
Place the dough ball in a clean bowl and cover with linen or towel.
Leave it to rise for 1 1/2 hours but make sure it is not in a drafty or cool environment.
When it has doubled in size, dump it back out onto a lightly floured surface.
Slice it into 8 equal pieces like a pizza.
Hand roll it into a snake shape about 7 inches long and line them up side by side on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Cover them with a towel and let them sit for another 1 1/2 hours.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and bake for 12 minutes until golden brown.
When removed from the oven, brush with melted vegan butter and sprinkle with garlic salt.
