Recipe Info

  • Servings : 6
  • Cook Time : 20m
  • Ready In : 20m


  • vegetable oil, to grease
  • 375g plain flour
  • 1⁄2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsps dried yeast
  • 2 handfuls fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp caster sugar
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 310ml lukewarm water
  • plain flour, to dust
  • sea salt


Step 1

Brush a bowl with oil to lightly grease. Sift the flour and salt into a bowl. Stir in the yeast, parsley, sugar and garlic, and use your hands to evenly mix. Make a well in the centre and add the water. Use a wooden spoon to stir until combined, then use your hands to bring the dough together in the bowl. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 5 minutes or until smooth and elastic.

Step 2

Place the dough in prepared bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and set aside in a warm, draught- free place for 45 minutes or until dough doubles in size.

Step 3

Preheat the oven to 180°C. Brush 2 baking trays with oil to lightly grease. Punch down centre of the dough with your fist. Turn it onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 2 minutes or until smooth and elastic. Divide into 2 equal portions. Use your hands to pat 1 dough portion into a 14 x 18cm rectangle. Cut crossways into 1cm-wide strips. Roll strips into 1cm diameter logs, about 20cm long. Place bread sticks, about 1cm apart, on trays. Sprinkle with a little water and sea salt. Repeat with remaining dough portion.

Step 4

Bake in the oven for 18 minutes, swapping trays after 14 minutes, or until golden brown and crisp. Remove from oven. Set aside on the trays to cool.
