No-Knead Italian Breadstick Twists - the easiest breadstick recipe you'll ever make! | mycaliforniaroots.com | #recipe #easy #bread #appetizer #party

Are you guys ready for Superbowl Sunday?! We (shock!) aren’t big football fans. Not that we don’t like it, we just don’t have the time. When we both work full time and AJ’s got 3 cars to work on and I’ve got this blog and we still like to exercise as much as possible, well, we just don’t find the tome to watch any TV. We don’t even have cable!

All that aside, I know the Superbowl is a big deal. When I was growing up my parents used to have a big (50ish people, if I remember correctly) party with a score-guessing game and lots of food and a really big TV. It was fun! I don’t believe they do it anymore, but my sister is certainly carrying on the tradition – she’s a big game fan. So, I know how important it is to have amazingly tasty but finger-food-approved food around. And I’m here to help!

Last week I showed you guys the Vegan Jalapeno Poppers, which are super amazing and you should definitely make for the Superbowl. They are perfect for snacking. Then on Monday I gave you a Soyrizo Taco Salad, which Dani mentioned would make a great party meal – a make your own taco salad bar! And today? Today is breadsticks. No-Knead Italian Breadstick Twists, to be exact.

I know everyone goes for the chips & salsa at parties, and they are totally correct in doing so. Chips & salsa are amazing. BUT! If you really want to wow your guests (but not really work that hard), this breadstick recipe is it. Just look at them! The process, however, is super simple – you just need a bit of planning ahead. Simply mix the dough together in a large bowl, then let it sit for about 90 minutes. Then roll it out, spread some butter and herbs across the top, slice into strips, and twist ‘em up. Then into the oven they go for 25 minutes, and you’re done! I know making bread, and especially breadsticks, can seem daunting, but it really doesn’t get any easier than this. It also doesn’t get much more delicious!

I decided to use some authentic Italian semolina flour for these, which gives them that pretty yellow hue and a nice subtle flavor. You can find it at most well-stocked grocery stores and definitely at natural foods stores. I use it in all my pizza doughs, Italian-style breads, and definitely in breadsticks.

These are best served with a bit of warm marinara sauce, so stock up on your favorite flavor because these are going to go like hotcakes. And the best part? All your Superbowl buddies will love you for it!

Vegan Jalapeno Poppers (v, gf*)

Nope, I’m not even joking. I made fried jalapeno poppers. Fried. They are crunchy and oily and unhealthy and amazing. But! For all you non-dairy or semi-healthy people out there, there is one redeeming quality. They’re vegan! Traditional jalapeno poppers are generally stuffed with cheese, then fried. They’re amazing! They also make me feel like…

For whatever reason, black eyed peas are considered good luck food for the new year, especially when paired with greens. Different cultures and different families will tell you why they think the peas are lucky, but the one I like best says that the peas swell when cooked, so represent prosperity, and the greens represent…
