This recipe is great for using your discarded sourdough starter and can be used as a base to try different ﬂavours such as rosemary and seasalt or basil and oregano.
1. In a bowl, mix the ﬂour, salt, sourdough starter, butter and spices until they form a smooth dough.
2. Split the dough into two equal parts and shape each one into a rectangular slab. Wrap with cling ﬁlm and place in the fridge for 30mins.
3. Preheat the oven to 200˚C (Fan 180°C, Gas Mark 6). Flour the worktop and roll out the dough until it is a rough rectangle, 1.5mm thick.
4. Place a sheet of parchment onto a baking tray and transfer the dough by rolling it onto the rolling pin. Brush with oil and sprinkle sea salt on top. Using a pizza slicer, cut the dough into long lengths approx. 3cm wide. You will have some rough edges, but don’t worry these can be eaten too! Using a fork, prick each one 3 times along the length.
5. Bake for around 20 minutes or until starting to brown. Remove and leave to cool on a cooling rack. Eat straight away with dips or houmous or place in an airtight container for up to a week.
