SMASH & GRAB : Quick Homemade 'Grissini'

Another use for a Warburton's Square-ish wrap! It never ceases to amaze me that the same food, presented in a variety of ways can be so appealing! 


These take a couple of minutes to prepare, 10 minutes to bake and are delicious with a small pot of houmous, or some homemade soup.(See posts; Magical Mushroom Soup, or Incredible Vegetable Soup 2 ways).
They are also a great accompaniment to a little pot of Philadelphia-either the extra light variety or the chocolate one,
or just a yummy 4pp (159kcal) snack that lasts a while!

Take 1 wrap (4pp or 159kcal).
With kitchen scissors you use for food prep, cut into strips about 1cm wide. I cut across the short side, then I get more 'grissini', as the wraps are slightly oblong. 
Put a sheet of greaseproof paper on a baking tray. Spray both sides of the 'grissini' with Frylight Sunflower oil.
Bake for 10-15 minutes at about 200 degrees centigrade until light golden and crisp.
Once baked, they become rigid so will stand beautifully in a glass or ceramic container for serving.

The picture above shows the amount made from one wrap- about 20 individual 'grissini'.



Make batches of these and store them in an airtight container. They will keep for a few days.


Crunchy sticks of yumminess.

Do you dream these ideas in your sleep???!!! Whatever next!!!! Can't wait. By the way like the little green thing you put on a few days ago but still does not quite answer my question! In the meantime my nails are still intact and I think the problem has been solved by starting julienning holding vegetable in palm of hand and finishing up on board from either end. That way the nails stay intact and there is a satisfactory end to the veg in question - mostly carrots!!

I do have some ideas fly into my head at strange times! Some just seem to pop in from nowhere! Sounds like you have the julienning thing sussed now! They can be a bit lethal, I agree. Thankfully my nails are rubbish so I don't have to worry about them......keep watching....some more fab ideas on their way-especially an aubergine one! x
