Just another thing to do with left over starter. Since my eldest daughter is vegan (because of medical imperatives) I have had to find more recipes that don’t include animal products, in a vain attempt to get her to eat sourdough anything. I found this recipe for cheesy bread sticks on a vegan cooking site. It calls for nutritional yeast flakes, so I found some online at Affordable Wholefoods
Here is my sourdough version of the vegan, cheesy bread sticks.
1 small onion (chopped)
3 cloves of garlic (chopped)
4 tablespoons nutritional yeast
1 1/2 cups plain flour
1 cup sourdough starter
1 teaspoon vegetable stock
Fry onion and garlic in olive oil until soft. Let onion cool a little then add other ingredients and make a dough. You may need to add more flour or a little warm water to get a good dough. Knead dough for a few minutes then form into bread sticks or buns (I did both).
Let buns or bread sticks sit in a warm area until they double in size.
Bake for 10 minutes (bread sticks)
or 20 minutes (buns)
in a 200 degree C oven.
Do they taste cheezy? Yes they do! I love the little buns with lots of butter (well…olive oil spread) and a good cup of coffee.
