Puff pastry breadsticks | budget-proof challenge


I love a good soup. There are so many options, I like to prepare a different soup every week! However, sometimes it’s not enough as a dinner so you’ll have to add something like a piece of bread or… breadsticks!

I’ve got this great and simple recipe that I prepared in a few minutes with some puff pastry, cheese and sesame seeds. We ate these together with the vegetable soup recipe I posted yesterday. How easy is that?!

Luckily I prepared my soup in the afternoon already, because I was exhausted at the end of the day! I had an appointment to work on my anxiety troubles first and afterwards I rushed to the gym for my first yoga class there.

Absolutely loved it! It’s completely different from the yoga I was used to, they even made us do some crunches… Did not see that coming. But the overall ambiance was as always extreeeemely relaxed. After the stretching and sort of workout poses we had those 10 minutes of lying on the ground, eyes closed, to meditate and relax…. Best part if you ask me.


Anyways, after that really relaxed yoga class I was feeling, well, really relaxed. I took a shower and was not really able to get out… Then I nearly fell asleep on the couch! Oops, too relaxed. But it was sort of what I needed. Dinner wasn’t that much work, I only needed to reheat the soup and put these babies in the oven. Aaaand done!


I’ve never made breadsticks from homemade dough or anything, but I would say these taste pretty damn delicious. You can think of other toppings if you like: I made one variety with cheese and the other with sesame seeds but you can make them with herbs or whatever.

By the way: I used two colours of sesame seeds because it looks cool. I stole that idea from Cheese and Chinese 😉 (Go check out their blog!)

    1. Thank you! Puff pastry is so easy to use, I always have a package in my freezer. A little while ago I wrote a recipe for salmon in puff pastry, that was pretty tasty too! Or if I have leftover pasta sauce I put it in between two sheets of puff pastry with some cheese, the possibilities are endless 😉

  1. Vivian, you did not just make puff pastry breadsticks!!! My goodness… these look so delicious! My mouth is totally watering, which is a bad thing because I need to be focused on starting the week off thinking only about veggies. LOL. Anywho, love that you tried out a new yoga class and enjoyed it! Super cool that they mixed it up and made you guys do crunches. Have a great Monday! xo

    1. Oops, I should add a tag “not for Demeter” next time! Haha. I really couldn’t think only about veggies, I wish you the best of luck!
      Yeaaah I loved it too, I’ve done yoga before when I was abroad in Sydney but it was more the “relax, stretch and hooooold” kind of yoga you know. This was more… energizing. I think. Even though I felt so sleepy. Something went wrong there!
      You too Demeter, thanks for stopping by! XX
