In this recipe, I will show you how to make light and fluffy vegan green pesto breadsticks that will be a total hit on your table. Using green pesto will give them a great kick and beautiful green vibrant color.
On the day I baked these, the house smelled so wonderful. The smell of freshly baked bread is just something else, isn’t it? When the kids came home from school they came straight to the kitchen and I knew instantly that my breadsticks were not gonna make it to dinner. However, that’s completely fine. I love it when I make something that my family likes so much they want to eat it straight away.
These breadsticks will go lovely with any pasta dish or as a side to soups, stews or pizza. They are easy to make and a total crowd pleaser. But, make sure to make enough because they will disappear quite quickly!
How to make vegan green pesto breadsticks
Green pesto breadsticksPrint
- 250 g Flour
- 150 ml Warm water
- 12 g Yeast
- 1/4 tsp Salt
- 1 tsp Fruits syrup
- 1/4 cup Dairy free green pesto
- 1/4 cup Vegan parmesan cheese
- Salt and pepper to taste
- In a bowl or glass mix together 150 ml warm water, 1 pack of yeast, 1 tsp fruit syrup and ½ tbsp oil. Allow sitting for 5-10 minutes while the yeast activates. In a mixing bowl add 250g of flour and ¼ tsp salt and mix well together. When the yeast has formed a frothy hat on top of the water pour it into the mixing bowl and mix well together. You can use either a spoon or a stand mixer. Knead for about five minutes or until the dough is soft and easy to handle. Brush the inside of a bowl with a little bit of oil and place the dough in it. Cover with a dish cloth and leave to rise for about 40 minutes. After an hour, take the dough and place on a surface dusted with flour. Knead for a minute and then roll out the dough and cut into 8 strips and spread about 1-2 tsp of pesto on each strip. Sprinkle with vegan parmesan cheese. Twist each strip a few times and then bake in the oven for about 12 minutes on 210°C. Just watch them so they don't start to burn. Just try to resist the urge to tuck in the the freshly baked breadstick until it has cooled down a bit.
