Delicious Vegan Sourdough Crackers

Delicious Vegan Sourdough Crackers

One of my rituals every week is baking my own bread with sourdough starter. Now personally I follow the no discard rule as I hate wasting anything and the bread still turns out fine. I’m also a bit lazy and don’t want to feed my starter all the time. However, I know a lot of people produce discard so I want to share a few recipes that can use up the discard. Here is a favourite of mine: sourdough crackers for snacking!

Sourdough Discard

If you want to ensure that your sourdough starter is always fresh and ready to bake you will feed it and produce discard. Personally, I only feed it before I bake so avoid the whole discard issue. If I want to bake something, like my English breakfast muffins, I just produce a bit more of my sourdough starter when I feed my sourdough starter before baking.

Sourdough Discard Recipes

There are quite a few great recipes you can follow if you need to use up discard. You can make English breakfast muffins, these sourdough crackers, normal muffins and so much more! I will share more recipes when I try them.

  • This looks delicious! I have never tried making anything bread or cracker related. With the quarantine and having so much time on my hands, I will definitely have to give it a shot! Great recipe – Thanks for sharing πŸ™‚

    • It is surprisingly easy and they last well. If you try them let me know how you liked them! πŸ™‚

  • Hi! I have been making crackers with sourdough discard for the past year since getting on the sourdough bandwagon! I love the simplicity of your recipe…BUT…all the other SD crackers I make require a much longer bake time: (30 minutes, cut with pizza wheel and bake 30 more minutes etc) so I have never done 6-8 minutes; turn and bake an additional 6-8 minutes—I don’t mean to go my own way—i want crisp crackers and even if I lower the temp, I still bake many more minutes than 6-8…so PLEASE reassure me if that 6-8 is true-or could it be a type-OH?? Thanks! I really appreciate your website!!

    • There are so many lovely recipes around! Glad to hear you enjoy making sourdough crackers! This recipe relies on rolling the dough really thin to about 2mm so 6 – 8 min on each side should be enough. However, all ovens are different as well! While baking these in my previous oven it only needed about 6 min on each side to get really lovely and crisp crackers, in my current one it is probably more about 10 min on each side! Can’t wait to have a better oven again!
