 Here's an article from the Nov/Dec '94 issue of Vegetarian Journal.
 By Nanette Blanchard
      The following recipes are adapted from my upcoming cookbook,
 _'Tis the Season: A Vegetarian Christmas Cookbook_, to be
 published in August of 1995 by Fireside/Simon & Schuster.
 (Makes 40 breadsticks)
 These herbed breadsticks are thin and crispy and are quite
 popular as munchies for a lively party.  The best
 breadsticks are the ones that are stretched, not rolled. Serve
 these stacked high in a rustic basket lined with a red or
 green napkin.
 1 Tablespoon active dry yeast
 1 cup warm water
 1 teaspoon salt
 2 cloves garlic, minced
 2 Tablespoons minced fresh sage
 About 2-1/2 cups whole wheat flour
      Dissolve yeast in warm water for 10 minutes. Stir in salt, garlic, 
 and sage.  Add flour slowly.  Turn out onto well floured board and
 knead 20 minutes or until smooth and satiny.
      Spray bowl with vegetable cooking spray and place dough in it.  
 Cover and let rise in warm place for 30 minutes or until doubled in 
 bulk.  Punch down.  Preheat oven to 400 degrees. On a floured
 board, roll dough out to a 12-inch square.  Sprinkle dough lightly 
 with additional flour.  Divide dough into four equal pieces.  Cut each
 piece into 10 strips.  Stretch each strip out to 12 or 15-inches long.  
 Place on greased cookie sheet 1/2-inch apart.  Bake for 15 minutes 
 or until golden brown and crispy. Serve hot or at room temperature.
