In any celebration, food is one of the main features, and one can look forward to the wide variety of Thanksgiving favorites during this time of year. Breadsticks are one popular treat enjoyed during such occasions. Today, we will show you how to make veganised breadsticks filled with vegan cheese and vegan bacon. Firstly, we are going to bloom our yeast in a warm vegan buttermilk mixture. Add 52 grams of unsalted vegan butter into a pot and turn on the stove at low heat. When the vegan butter has melted, add 40 grams of sugar and 205 milliliters of high-fat soymilk. Keep stirring the mixture. When the yeast has activated, it releases carbon dioxide that causes the dough to rise. Now, our yeast has foamed, and it is time to add the vegan butter and soymilk mixture to the flour. Add a little at a time until the liquid is absorbed by the flour. Now, we can knead the dough by hand. While kneading, ensure there is no dry flour left in the mixing bowl. At this point, it is not necessary to have a completely smooth dough. Cover it and let it rest for about an hour in a warm place until it doubles in size. Dust some flour on the kneading board to prevent the dough from sticking. Knead the dough until smooth, form it into an elongated sausage-like shape. Then flatten the dough and roll it into a rectangular shape with a rolling pin. We will cut the rectangular dough into eight pieces starting from the middle. First, sprinkle your favorite mixed dried herbs. We use rosemary, basil, thyme, parsley, and ground black pepper. Then add a generous amount of your favorite shredded vegan cheese and shredded vegan bacon. Wrap the filling by pinching the two edges of the dough together and sealing the ends. Gently roll the wrapped breadsticks to smoothen the surface. Cover the wrapped breadsticks with a damp towel and let them rest until they have doubled in size. It takes about 30 to 45 minutes.Transfer them onto a baking tray lined with a silicone baking mat to prevent sticking. Alternatively, you can use parchment paper to line your baking tray or brush on some vegetable oil. We scoop about four tablespoons of the vegan glaze we just made into another bowl and add some of the dried herb mixture, which is the same as what we have wrapped in the breadsticks. Mix well, then brush the glaze on the top of the breadsticks. Let’s get these beauties in the oven, which has been pre-heated to 180 degrees Celsius for 20 to 25 minutes. You would want to keep an eye on them as they cook through and turn golden brown.
