Sourdough vegan cheese bread sticks

6D60AB77-44EC-4320-8B11-EC8E00E32247Just 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.


Onion and garlic chopped


Dough ready to go


Buns and bread sticks rising



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.
