INGREDIENTS 2½ teaspoons quick rising yeast 1¼ cup warm water 2 Tablespoons brown sugar 1 teaspoon salt ¼ cup olive oil 3 cups white spelt flour Topping: 3 cloves of garlic, crushed 1½ Tablespoons of dried Italian seasoning 3 Tablespoons olive oil Optional: 2 cups Marinara sauce for dipping METHOD Put the warm water, brown sugar, and yeast in a large bowl, and let sit for about 10 minutes so the sugar feeds the yeast. It will look a little bit foamy on top. Add the spelt flour, salt, and water, and mix together. Knead the dough with your hands just a little bit until it is smooth and elastic. If it seems too wet, add a bit more spelt flour. Take a handful of dough, roll it into a log, and place it on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Stretch it out until it is about six inches long. Repeat with remaining dough. You should get about 8 breadsticks. Set aside to rise for one hour. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix the crushed garlic, Italian seasoning, and olive oil in a small bowl. Brush this mixture over the tops of the breadsticks. Bake at 375 degrees for 10-15 minutes until golden brown. Enjoy with warmed marinara sauce for dipping if desired.
