Mozzarella Sticks

During a recent trip to one of our Co-ops (Lori's Natural Foods) I found Square Blocks of Mozzarella Daiya Cheese. Unfortunately Daiya does not sell it this way- but ask your local co-op if they purchase it in bulk and might be willing to cut you a block. If you cant find Daiya- Feel free to use any other type of Gluten and Dairy Free Cheese- (though Daiya is by far the best)

Chex Cereal works phenomenal as breading for this recipe- It functions best when very finely crushed. You can do this by running it through a food processor or by placing it in a sealed zip lock bag and crushing with a rolling pin.

If you need these to be corn free- use Potato Starch or Arrowroot Flour instead of Cornstarch.

Mozzarella fried sticks

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup Millet Flour (Or Rice Flour)
  • 1/4 cup Cornstarch (Or Potato Starch or Arrowroot)
  • 1/2 cup Water
  • 3 tablespoons Ener-G Egg Replacer
  • 2 cups Finely Crushed Chex Cereal
  • 1 tablespoon Dried Basil
  • 1 teaspoon Pepper
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Salt
  • 1 tablespoon Garlic Powder
  • Oil to Fry Mozzarella Sticks
  • 1 Block of Dairy and Gluten Free Cheese

Directions

  1. Slice the Daiya Cheese block (think Mozzarella Sticks- though you can cut them much smaller than that if want ) Keep in mind that they will increase in size when the breading is added. Set aside.
  2. Get out 3 separate bowls. In the 1st combine the Millet Flour and Cornstarch, In the next bowl combine the water and Ener-G Egg replacer and in the 3rd bowl Combine the Crushed Chex cereal Basil, Salt Pepper and Garlic.
  3. Place each stick of "cheese" in the Water and Ener-G egg mixture, then place it in the Flour Mixture (Millet & Cornstarch) Make sure the cheese stick is covered well. Then Place the Cheese stick back into the water and Ener-G - Finally drop the cheese sticks into the Crushed Chex mix.
  4. Set aside until ready to fry.
  5. Heat Oil- Place Mozzarella Sticks into hot oil. (make sure oil is deep enough that they can submerge fully) Fry until golden Brown. (Just a few minutes)
  6. Place on a Paper towel to drain excess oil and serve with Marinara Sauce.

    Can I use a real egg instead of the Ener-G Egg Replacer?
