  1. I made this recipe the other day and took it as a nibbles dish with pesto, carrot sticks and broccoli florets to a lunch time get together, people loved it and asked for the recipe. I substituted the palm shortening with grass fed butter the only thing I think I could have done better was to roll it out a bit thinner. Thanks for sharing, love your website!

  2. Hi, is there a sub for tapioca flour please? I’m in johannesburg and not sure I can find that or Palm shortening here!

    1. I can’t promise since I haven’t tried any with this recipe, Audrey. They usually sell it at all of your local grocery stores for under $5!

  3. Oh yes, I’m nowhere near ready for making the switch to fall recipes. It’s been hot as Hades here, too, so I’m feeling ya on hanging on to summer produce for as long as possible. These breadsticks look maaaaahvelous! I have all the ingredients on hand already, so I’m thinking this is definitely on my To Make list!

  4. I have to say, planning is key! Plan the weeks worth of breakfast and dinner, and always have leftovers to bring to work the next day for lunch. My hardest meal is dinner on a weekend.. haha.. sometimes I just want to get a “break” 🙂
    These breadsticks look amazing, I can’t wait to try them!
