Fried sticks of vegan cheese here!!! Get them while they’re hot and melty and gooey!!!  Finally these vegan mozzarella sticks came out the way I wished that they would have in the past.  My previous attempts at making them were utter failures.  I’m pretty sure it was mainly because I used a bad breading process.  As I was making these though, I could tell they were gonna be glorious.  What happy hour menu would be complete without breaded sticks of melty cheese?

My first match with vegan mozzarella sticks ended up like the first Rocky movie.  With the kitchen as our fighting ring, the vegan mozzarella sticks ended up bleeding cheese everywhere and I ended up looking around dumbfounded and calling out for my wife (Adrian wasn’t his wife in that movie yet, I know).  I just wish wife-unit could have come running down the stairs for me.  Unfortunately, we don’t have stairs.

The re-match with vegan mozzarella sticks, however, was my time to shine.  Sweet victory.  Unlike Rocky II however, I proceeded to eat my opponent after the fight…

Vegan Mozzarella Sticks

  • 1 block of Daiya cheese – Italian flavor – cut into sticks about 4 inches by 1 inch by 1/2 inch (you know how big mozzarella sticks are)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup of all purpose flour
  • 1 cup Italian breadcrumbs
  • 2 tbsp vegan Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp salt
  • vegetable oil for frying

Heat the vegetable oil to 360 degrees in a suitable skillet or pan so that the oil is about an inch high.

Put the water and flour into two separate small bowls.  Dip the vegan cheese sticks  into the water, let the excess run off for a second, then dip into the flour, making sure they are fully coated.  It doesn’t have to be a full shell just enough so that there is a light coating of flour.  Allow the coated vegan cheese sticks to dry for about 5 minutes.

Mix the breadcrumbs, vegan Parmesan, and salt in a shallow dish.

Dip the cheese sticks in the water again and roll them through the breadcrumb mixture and allow them to dry.  Dip the cheese sticks once more in the water and roll once more in the breadcrumb mixture to ensure the entire surface of the cheese stick is coated with breadcrumbs.

Deep fry the coated vegan mozzarella sticks until golden brown.  Move to a paper towel covered plate to cool.  These are best when dipped into a warm marinara sauce.

    The big question is, where do you buy blocks of Daiya? I buy it in 5 lb. bags of shreds.

  4. I get blocks of Daiya from Whole Foods. I’m pretty sure they order much larger blocks, cut them down and then sell the smaller blocks by the pound. Much like a deli would do for any other cheese.

    If I could give you a hug right now I so would. & if I make these & they really are as good as they look, I hope my boyfriend can support my mental state of mind. My friends always think its awesome when I bring around vegan foods that look like ‘their foods’ so I’m really excited to make these. & once I do make em I will definately let you know how much I love them. A few days ago I had that new Amy’s Frozen Mac & Cheese which used Daiya in it, and that was my first time trying it. I was very impressed. Thank you for making this!

    These look great and my boyfriend thinks they’re amazing. I also noticed the salsa on your site, any idea how they would taste mixed. I don’t have the time to try during the week and I’m making these for his family this weekend so I need to know soon. Keep up the amazing work and your site is on the top of my bookmarks list.

    Aw, this was an extremely good post. Spending some time and actual effort to create a really good article… but what can I say… I put things off a whole lot and don’t seem to get nearly anything done.

    I really want mozzarella sticks even more now! but cant get a block of Daiya or any block of vegan cheese in my local tesco or whole foods store and my parents dont really want me 2 be vegan so they won’t try anywhere else;( atleast i can eat most dark chocolate and veggie SUSHI (if you havent tried it try it now!) GOSH – my dad annoys me so much one time he got a can of beans and sausages instead of normal Heinz beans and when he got home i said i almost cooked whos beans u got and they have pork in them then he tried 2 tell me the meat in the can of beans wasnt real cos a can would make meat go rusty!? then he said i should have just ate them and forgive him!! he was being serious and ive been a veggie for 3 years and a vegan for 6 months enough with the jokes:/ COMMENT with a really annoying stupid funny or embarrassing thing someone’s said to you about you being a vegan

  19. Ebony, make sure you get a really good coating of breading around the entire stick and enough oil so that these things are swimming.
