Grissini make amazing snacks in packed lunches or sides for dinner. Here we've made some with rye flour and thyme. Enjoy!


1. Mix cold and boiling water in a bowl. Add crumbled yeast and stir well, until it's dissolved. Then add oil and salt.

2. Add thyme, rye flour and plain flour and knead the dough well, until supple. Add a bit more flour if the dough is a bit too tacky.

3. Let the dough rise under a cloth for about 30 minutes - meanwhile, preheat the oven to 190 degrees convection.

4. Split the dough into 8 sections. Pop some flour on the table and roll each section into thin strips, about 1 cm thick. Cut into approx. 20 cm sections - this makes 3 grissini for each of your 8 sections.

5. Place the grissini on a baking tray with baking parchment and bake for 15-20 minutes, until golden.

6. Let cool and store in an airtight container.

7. Serve the grissini as snacks in packed lunches, on the go with a quick hummus or other dip - or as a side for dinner.

8. Enjoy!


Tasks for kids in the kitchen: Let your kids help make the dough, and roll it out into long grissini.
