Vegan Mozzarella Sticks

Vegan Mozzarella Sticks


1 block vegan mozzarella
oil for frying
½ cup flour
½ cup water
1 tablespoon cornmeal
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 cup breadcrumbs
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon parsley flakes
½ teaspoon black pepper
½ teaspoon garlic powder
¼ teaspoon onion powder
¼ teaspoon oregano
¼ teaspoon basil


Combine ingredients for wet mix, flour through garlic powder. The consistency should be like pancake batter, so adjust accordingly if needed.

In another bowl, stir together breadcrumbs and remaining spices.

Slice vegan cheese into ½ inch strips. This recipe uses Follow Your Heart brand vegan cheese block.

Lightly coat each stick with flour.

Dredge each stick in the wet mix, then toss in bread crumbs until fully coated.

Place sticks on a cookie sheet in a single layer and freeze for at least one hour.

Pour an inch of oil into the bottom of a deep pot and heat.

Carefully dip the end of a stick into the oil to check for readiness; if the oil sizzles continually, it’s ready.

Once it’s up to temperature, fry sticks in batches about 1 minute per side or until they’re golden brown and you can see a little cheese oozing out.

Serve immediately with marinara sauce for dipping.
