Introduction: Vegan Mozzarella Sticks

One of the many foods off the table for vegans is the good ol' mozzarella stick. Deep fried with breadcrumbs and cheese, this food should not be considered healthy.

But who says we can't make it vegan? Using a good vegan cheese, teese, by the chicago soy dairy, we will create the abomination that is, Vegan Mozzarella Sticks.

Step 1: Ingredients

For this recipe you will need:

Wet Mix of:
1/2c Flour
1/2c water
1 tbsp Cornstarch

1c Italian Breadcrumbs
1 pk Teese Cheese

Step 2: Cut the Cheese

First remove the teese vegan cheese from the wrapping and cut into square strips.

Step 3: Mix Wet Ingredients

Next mix together flour, water and cornstarch into a slurry. It should be the consistency of pancake batter.

Step 4: Coat the Sticks

Next, take the sticks, dip them into the flour-water mix. The dip them into the breadcrumbs,

Step 5: Deep Fry

Once you have a batch of sticks coated, deep fry them to a crisp.

Step 6: Serve With Marinara Sauce

Once you have a batch cooked, serve with marinara sauce and enjoy!

Everyone at instructables seemed to enjoy these little morsels, as you can see they are all gone. They give a pretty convincing alternative to the real thing.

How is the Teese Cheese? I've tried Galaxy Nutritional (which was gross) and I've tried Daiya(which is also not so pleasant for me.) Which "cheese" has the best flavor and taste?

Also, how come we cant use the flavoring for the cheddar or mozzarella in vegan? Is it just seasoning, or is it how the cheese is prepared? What is added to the milk to make the cheese different from each other?

I love the idea of this.

If it's true vegan cheese there should be no milk in the mixture.

I've tried Teese and it's pretty good. It melt's OK, but you do need some structure to make vegan mozzarella sticks, so I think Teese is a good choice for something like this. Daiya Mozzarella is very rich-the shreds wouldn't work for this, but they have a new Daiya Wedge that would probably work (only place I've seen it is at Whole Foods, but you might be able to get it elsewhere). Of the three though, I like the taste of Follow Your Heart's Vegan Gourmet Mozzarella style best and it melts too. It takes really high temperatures to melt FYH-VG - it is firmer than Teese,
so it would hold up structurally too I think.

The Daiya wedge is very soft, in my experience.  It probably wouldn't hold up well.

I want those soo bad but vegan cheese is expensive :(

Not any more expensive than dairy cheese...about $4 per package...

I can't believe that there's a vegan cheese... I thought being vegan was a commitment...

It still is a commitment, but the advancements in the food industries has created a vast array of products that help accommodate an easier lifestyle change. And it is a lifestyle, not a diet.

But eating vegan cheese is practically cheating on yourself. If you're gonna eat it, just quit vegan... I dont how youre saying that its a lifestyle is gonna change anything...

I suppose soy millk is cheating too?
