Vegan Mozzarella Sticks

It’s happened to me a million times, my omnivore husband and I have gone to a restaurant and I watch him happily eat mozzarella sticks. These tasty appetizers were my favorite foods before I became vegan. Out of all of the appetizers I miss….this has to be a top of my list. I know other vegans have to miss these too. This recipe took some work to perfect, but it’s pretty good.

  • ½ cup of Vegan Japanese bread crumbs
  • 1 cup of bread flour
  • 1 tablespoon of Italian Seasoning `
  • 1/2 cup of milk (1 basil leaf, 1 teaspoon of garlic)
  • ½ teaspoon of paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/3 tsp parsley flakes ¼ tsp fine sea salt
  • 3 bowls

1. Heat oil until 350 degrees or until oil moves in circular motion.

2. In first bowl, combine milk, basil leaf and garlic. Heat in microwave for one minute. Allow milk to cool. In second bowl place bread flour. In last bowl, combine Italian seasoning, paprika, dried oregano, parsley flakes, panko flakes and salt.

3. Cut wedge of vegan mozzarella in to sticks about ¼ inch thick.

4. Create dredge station in the following order: Milk bowl, flour bowl, seasoning.

5. Dip cheese in milk, flour, seasoning, flour and in to the seasoning again. Repeat with each stick.

6. Gently place each stick in hot oil for 30-45 seconds. Remove and allow to cool. 

Omnivore approved.

    PS Just to let you know, you forgot to list the vegan mozzarella among the ingredients. How much do we need?

      Omg! I cant believe it! Just one block should work well for you! I used about 8 oz.

    Vote #3! Vegan Georgia Belle, I am thinking that almond milk might make a great subsitute. Sounds delicious!

      Please, please use unsweetened almond milk! I used vanilla on accident the first time with horrible results! lol

      This recipe really hits the spot! My husband loved them and said he almost couldn't tell the difference. I love romesco sauce!

    Is there a milk-alternative that you recommend? You only indicate 'milk', and that kinda makes it look like your sticks aren't vegan, but I'm sure you meant to put it as an alternative. Which one did you use? Voted! I have a new post, Veg Organisations Across the World, that I think could be beneficial for anyone looking for information, recipes, where to shop, and anything else that could be of help to vegans! Vote if you like it!

      I used almond milk, rice milk will work well also. Just make sure you use unsweetened ALMOND milk!! Thank you for being so observant. I will be sure to check out your post! Thank you!
