Mozzarella Sticks [Vegan]

My Vegan Mozzarella Sticks are crispy on the outside and ooey-gooey cheesy on the inside. Serve them with a marinara dipping sauce. Just remember to uphold the MOST important appetizer law: make enough so everyone gets the same number of mozzarella sticks and avoid that awkward staredown of the last one on the plate!

Vegan Mozzarella Sticks

This Recipe is :


  • 5 oz. block vegan mozzarella flavor
  • ¾ cup chickpea flour, divided
  • 1 Tbs. cornmeal
  • 1 Tbs. cornstarch
  • ½ tsp. Kosher salt
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder, divided
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 cup crushed rice cereal or bread crumbs
  • ½ tsp. Kosher salt
  • ½ tsp. ground black pepper
  • ½ tsp. dried parsley
  • ¼ tsp. onion powder
  • ¼ tsp. dried oregano
  • ¼ tsp. dried basil
  • 1 Tbs. vegan grated parmesan
  • Safflower oil, for frying


  1. Cut the block of vegan mozzarella into stick shapes.
  2. Put ¼ cup of the flour in one shallow bowl. In a second bowl, create the batter by combining the remaining flour, cornmeal, cornstarch, salt and garlic powder. The consistency should be like pancake batter. If it is too thick, add more water. If it’s too thin, add more flour. In a third shallow dish, combine the rice cereal, the spices and the grated parmesan to create the breading.
  3. Roll the cheese sticks in the flour. Shake off the excess and dip them into the batter. Shake off the excess batter and cover the sticks in the breading. Lay the mozzarella sticks on a baking sheet and put them in the freezer for 30 minutes.
  4. Heat about 3 inches of oil in a large pot to 350 degrees. Fry the mozzarella sticks, about 4 at a time, for about 5 minutes until they are golden brown and you see the cheese starting to ooze out. Turn them halfway through to make sure both sides get browned. Place on a cooling rack so they stay crisp. Serve while hot with a simple marinara sauce. Enjoy!


Cheesy Recipes (Vegan)




When Rhea became vegan, there were no places in her Bronx neighborhood to eat so she had to learn to cook, mostly by watching TV cooking shows, especially Christina Pirello and Rachael Ray.  That led to the creation of The "V" Word website which focuses on vegan versions of favorite, familiar foods. Rhea has written several e-cookbooks which are available on her web site. It is Rhea's hope that she can spread the "V" Word to bring more compassion into the world and it is her dream to become the vegan Rachael Ray.

Calie Mcmahan, if you can get daiya cheddar shreds then you could easily make your own jalapeño poppers. I'm also curious where you get vegan mozzarella in a block form? All I have locally is daiya shreds and that follow your heart stuff but it tastes awful.
