Preparation

  1. Starting with the breadsticks, combine the lukewarm water, yeast and sugar in a small bowl, whisk together and set aside for about 20 minutes until frothy.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour and salt and create a well in the middle.
  3. Pour the yeasted water in the well and mix together with a wooden spoon. Once the mixture has formed a dough, knead with well floured hands on a floured surface until smooth and even. Add more flour and knead again if too sticky.
  4. Transfer to a lightly oiled bowl and keep in a warm space for 40 minutes.
  5. While the dough is resting, bring a pan of water to a boil and add the carrots and the potato. Boil for 10 minutes then drain the water.
  6. Transfer to a blender along with the rest of the cheese ingredients and blend on high until smooth. Transfer to a bowl or airtight box and refrigerate for up to 4 days.
  7. Once the dough has almost doubled in size pre heat your oven to and line a baking sheet. Punch the dough down in the bowl and turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Tear off balls from the dough and roll into long sausages (1/2-inch thick) and place on the baking sheet. Brush each stick with a little olive oil.
  8. Transfer to the oven and cook for 18-22 minutes or until starting to turn golden.
  9. Keep the breadsticks in a airtight box once cool for up to 4 days, but best eaten relatively fresh!
