Garlic Herb Vegan Breadsticks Soft and Fluffy

These Soft and fluffy vegan garlic herb breadsticks are a family favorite! These are easy to whip up and are a perfect accompaniment to pasta!


For the dough:

  • 2 1/2 teaspoons quick rising yeast I like Red Star quick rise yeast
  • 1 1/4 cup warm water
  • 2 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 cups white spelt flour all-purpose flour is fine, too

For the topping:

  • 3 cloves garlic crushed
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons dried Italian seasoning
  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cups Marinara sauce for dipping


  1. 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.
  2. Add the spelt flour, salt and 1/4 cup of olive oil to the yeast and water mixture, 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Repeat with remaining dough. You should get about 8 breadsticks.
  5. Set aside to rise for one hour.
  6. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  7. Mix the crushed garlic, Italian seasoning, and 3 tablespoons olive oil in a small bowl. Brush this mixture over the tops of the breadsticks.
  8. Bake at 375 degrees for 10-15 minutes until golden brown.
  9. Enjoy with warmed marinara sauce for dipping if desired.


You can also just brush these with olive oil and sprinkle garlic salt on top for a simpler version.
