(Olive Garden Inspired)
1 package active dry yeast
4 1/4 cups all-purpose unbleached flour, plus more for dusting
2 Tablespoons unsalted vegan butter, softened
2 Tablespoons sugar
1 Tablespoon fine salt
5 Tablespoons unsalted vegan butter, melted (If salted, add less salt)
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 to 2 teaspoon garlic powder, (Depends on how garlicky you want them)
In a large bowl, dissolve half the sugar and yeast in warm water and allow to sit for 10 minutes to bloom. Mixture should be frothy when finished with lots of foam from bubbles.
(Still sticky, if still sticky add a little more flour and if dry add a little water until combined)
|Risen Breadsticks: Before
(I remolded them out a bit more after rising to make a better shape)
|Risen Pre-Baked Breadsticks: After
In microwave, combine the the vegan unsalted butter, 1 to 2 teaspoons garlic powder and 1 teaspoons salt.
After bread sticks have cooked for 6 or 7 minutes, brush the breadsticks with half the vegan butter mixture. Then continue to bake for 5 to 8 more minutes. After the 5 to 8 minutes, remove the breadsticks from the oven and brush with the remaining vegan butter topping. Allow to cool before eating, serve with your favorite main dishes. Enjoy!
