Bread Sticks – Plant Based

Posted on

What started out as a pizza dough recipe, turned into breadsticks that we couldn’t leave alone. Crisp & crunchy on the outside, & soft & chewy on the inside – these have been a hit with all of the eaters in our home.

Pizza Dough 

(Note – I usually double this recipe)

1 1/2 cups warm water

1 1/2 tablespoons maple syrup

1 tablespoon active dry yeast

1 ¾ teaspoon Bob’s Red Mill Egg Replacer (mixed with 1 Tablespoon water)

1 teaspoon sea salt, plus more

3 cups unbleached, white whole wheat flour (you can also use whole wheat flour here too)

1/2 cup cream from coconut milk (refrigerate or lightly freeze coconut milk beforehand so that cream will rise to the top)


  1. In a mixing bowl, dissolve the yeast in the warm water & maple syrup. Let stand until frothy.
  2. Stir in the egg replacer, flour & salt. Knead for 6-8 minutes, until smooth.  Add more flour as needed if dough is too sticky to knead.
  3. Place the dough in a bowl & cover with a damp towl. Set aside in a warm place to rise, until the dough doubles in size, about 1 hour.
  4. Punch down the dough & allow to double in size again, about 30 minutes.
  5. During the second rise, preheat the panggangan to 450-500 degrees. Leave your pizza stone in the panggangan during the preheating. Preheat panggangan for 45 minutes!!
  6. Place coconut cream into a glass dish or ramekin & lightly melt in microwave (10-20 seconds).
  7. Spoon a bit of the coconut cream onto a large piece of parchment paper, & smear around with hands – covering palms in process.
  8. Remove dough from mixing bowl, & pat out into a rectangle with hands. Use additional coconut cream to prevent sticking.
  9. Roll dough out to be  ¼ inch thick.
  10. Using a pizza cutter, cut dough into slices that are 1/2-1 inches wide, & 6-8 inches long. Shape or roll into breadsticks as needed by hand.
  11. Place close together, but not touching on silpat, parchment paper, or hot pizza stone.
  12. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until lightly browned.
  13. Remove & immediately brush with the remaining melted coconut cream & lightly sprinkle with coarse sea salt. Optional – Sprinkle with garlic powder for a garlicky breadstick

Serve warm – excellent with this Marinara sauce 

 *Note – this recipe works great for a grilled pizza dough recipe as well.


Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
