How to make Herby breadsticks

Herby homemade breadsticks, scattered generously with sea salt, make an impressive addition to any cheese board or crudités platter.

INGREDIENTS

500g strong white bread flour, plus extra for dusting
2 tsp salt
1 tsp caster sugar
7g fast-action dried yeast
4 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra for brushing
300ml lukewarm water
2 tbsp chopped fresh rosemary or thyme
Fine polenta for dusting
Sea salt flakes to scatter


METHOD
01.Put the flour, salt, sugar and yeast in a mixing bowl, stir in the oil and water, then bring together into a dough, first with a palette knife, then your hands. Tip the dough onto a lightly flour-dusted surface and knead for 10 minutes or until smooth and elastic (or knead in a stand mixer with a dough hook for 8 minutes).
02.Knead the herbs into the dough, then put in an oiled bowl, cover with a clean tea towel and leave to rise in a warm place for 1 hour or until doubled in size.
03.Knock the dough back in the bowl to distribute the air, then turn out onto a surface dusted with polenta and roll out into a rectangle about 30cm x 45cm. Halve the rectangle widthways using a sharp knife, then cut into strips, around 30cm x 2cm wide. Roll into stick shapes, then put on 2 baking sheets, scattered with more polenta. Leave somewhere warm to puff up/prove for 20 minutes. Heat the oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas 7.
04.Brush breadsticks with oil and scatter with sea salt. Bake for 14-16 minutes. Serve cool or warm with dips or cheese.
