Sourdough Breadsticks (with discarded starter)

sourdough breadsticks

These sourdough breadsticks are my favorite! They are very crispy from the semolina flour. This is a great way to use up your sourdough discard! I could eat the whole batch of these in one sitting.

If you don’t have much time, you could mix the dough and leave it in the refrigerator for a few days.

  • 125 g starter
  • 190 grams semolina flour
  • 40 grams all purpose flour
  • 100 grams water
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons butter cut into pieces
  • Handful of grated parmesan
  • red pepper flakes
  • olive oil
  • black pepper

Instructions for sourdough breadsticks

  1. Mix all the ingredients (except olive oil), knead and cover. Let the dough sit out for ~4 hours or in the refrigerator overnight.
  2. Then roll out into a rectangle that is about 1/4 inch thick. Cut into thin strip about 1/2 wide. It helps if you sprinkle semolina flour on parchment paper to roll out the dough. This dough can be a bit sticky. If the dough gets too soft from rolling, you can put it back into the refrigerator to chill, then retry rolling it again.
  3. Twist and place on a baking sheet with parchment paper. Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with more salt and pepper. Bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for about 20-25 minutes until golden brown.
