- 250g strong white flour (alternatively you can use strong spelt flour)
- 1 tsp fast action yeast
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 140ml warm water
Pre heat oven to 210 degrees c. Mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl until they are well combined. Then start kneading the dough and carry on until it starts to feel stretchy and elastic (this is quite therapeutic!). Leave the dough, in a bowl covered with a clean tea towel, to prove in a warm place until it has doubled in size, this takes around 30 mins in a medium warmth kitchen. When it is ready cut off baby fist size chunks and roll into a long sausage shape (or feel free to make smaller mini breadsticks if you'd like at this stage) and lay flat on a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper. Once they are all rolled out allow to rest for a further 5/10 minutes before baking for approx 10 minutes. They should be nicely browned and crispy on the edges when they are ready. Allow to cool before eating or storing.
