  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 cups sourdough starter
  • 1-4 tablespoons water
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  1. Combine all ingredients. In a stand mixer, mix on low to combine; if by hand, simply mix dough into a ball. Knead for 6 minutes, until dough is smooth and elastic. Dough should pass the windowpane test. (If you take a small piece of dough, you should be able to stretch it out so that you can kind of see light through it.) Place in a greased bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Let rise for about 90-120 minutes, until doubled.
  2. Turn dough out onto a floured surface. Shape/pat/stretch dough into a rectangle 16x8 inches long. Facing dough along the 16-inch length, use a pizza cutter to cut dough into 10-12 pieces. Place on a parchment-lined pan, 2 inches apart. Spray with cooking spray, cover with plastic wrap, and let rise for 45 minutes, until doubled.
  3. Brush tops of breadsticks with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and/or herbs. Bake for 12-15 minutes at 375F. Serve warm.
