I’m Possible Burger, Beyond the Impossible Burger Recipe

These sticks are perfect for a party or game day snack. They're soft and melty on the inside, perfectly crunchy on the outside and so dang good paired with marinara sauce.

For this recipe, we used Miyoko’s Mozzarella Cheese (pictured above). You can use any vegan block mozzarella cheese of your choice, and you can even use a stack of vegan mozzarella cheese slices (just don’t separate the pieces). We like the flavor or the Miyoko’s the best but we have also tried this with Chao Cheese and it was pretty dang good!

These are crispy on the outside and filled with melty and stretchy dairy-free mozzarella goodness on the inside. Perfect for dipping (and double dipping) in marinara sauce.

You’ll Need:

  • Canola oil or oil of choice, for frying
  • 1 package vegan mozzarella cheese (we used Miyoko’s, see notes)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs* (see notes)
  • 1 tablespoon of Italian seasoning
  • Homemade marinara sauce, for serving (optional)

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oil in deep fryer to around 370 degrees.
  2. Using a sharp knife, cut vegan mozzarella block in half long ways, and then into 1/2” strips. Set in fridge while preparing the batter.
  3. In a medium bowl, add in the almond milk, 2 tablespoons of all-purpose flour, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Whisk together until all ingredients are well combined. Set aside.
  4. In another medium bowl, add the bread crumbs and Italian seasoning. Whisk and set aside.
  5. In a third bowl, add the remaining all-purpose flour and set aside.
  6. Create a breading station: line up the bowl of almond milk batter, the bowl of all-purpose flour, and the bowl of bread crumbs.
  7. Remove the vegan mozzarella from the refrigerator and set a large plate or baking sheet aside. Grab four forks. Use one set of the forks (“wet-forks”) to pick up (do not pierce) one stick of mozzarella and submerge it completely in the batter. Shake off any excess and then drop it into the flour. Using the second set of forks (dry-forks), coat it completely in the flour. Pick up the stick using the “wet forks” and dunk it back into the batter, shaking off any excess. Drop the stick into the breadcrumb mixture and then using the “dry forks” generously coat it. Transfer the breaded stick onto the plate or baking sheet that you set aside and continue until you have coated all of the sticks. It is important to use the “wet forks” only for the batter and then the “dry forks” only for the flour and bread crumbs as this will prevent clumping and will also yield less of a mess.
  8. Once all of the sticks are coated, line a plate with paper towel and set it aside. Pop the mozzarella sticks into the heated oil and fry them for 2-4 minutes, or until golden brown.
  9. Once finished, transfer the mozzarella sticks to the paper towel-lined plate and allow them to cool until easy to handle.
  10. Serve with marinara sauce and enjoy!


NOTES:

  • It helps to use two sets of two forks, 1 set for the battering and 1 set for the coating. This will help to avoid clumping.
  • For this recipe, we used Miyoko’s Mozzarella Cheese (pictured above). You can use any vegan block mozzarella cheese of your choice, and you can even use a stack of vegan mozzarella cheese slices (just don’t separate the pieces). We like the flavor or the Miyoko’s the best but we have also tried this with Chao Cheese and it was pretty dang good!
  • You can also use Italian bread crumbs in place of the bread crumbs with Italian seasoning, just be sure that they are vegan.

Keto Vegan Mozzarella Sticks

Vegan Lebanese rice with vermicelli and pine nuts. A great side dish next to many Mediterranean favorites.

Since I serve Lebanese rice with nearly everything, it’s only fitting to add a Lebanese rice recipe here. This is a simple vegan rice pilaf made of three ingredients: vermicelli pasta, rice and olive oil. Add a bit of toasted pine nuts, and you have the best side of rice!

Throughout the Mediterranean, you will find rice dishes like, Paella; Mujadra (lentils and rice); or Hashweh (Beef and rice), that are certainly more of a meal. But this Lebanese rice with vermicelli is the every-day rice of the Middle East, and it’s by far the most served side dish in that part of the world.

WHAT IS IN THIS LEBANESE RICE
Basic Lebanese rice typically consists of broken vermicelli pasta, rice (medium or long grain rice works), and extra virgin olive oil or butter (or a combination of both). I use only extra virgin olive oil here. There is but a pinch of salt to season this rice.

And to jazz things up, I like topping the rice with toasted pine nuts adds a nice nutty flavor and texture.

You’ll Need:

  • 2 cups long grain or medium grain rice
  • Water
  • 1 cup broken vermicelli pasta
  • 2 1/2 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt
  • 1/2 cup toasted pine nuts, optional to finish

Instructions:

  1. Rinse the rice well (a few times) then place it in a medium bowl and cover with water. Soak for 15 to 20 minutes. Test to see if you can easily break a grain of rice by simply placing it between your thumb and index finger. Drain well.
  2. In a medium non-stick cooking pot, heat the olive oil on medium-high. Add the vermicelli and continuously stir to toast it evenly. Vermicelli should turn a nice golden brown, but watch carefully not to over-brown or burn it (If it burns, you must throw the vermicelli away and start over).
  3. d the rice and continue to stir so that the rice will be well-coated with the olive oil. Season with salt.
  4. Now add 3 1/2 cups of water and bring it to a boil until the water significantly reduces (see the photo below).Turn the heat to low and cover.
  5. Cook for 15-20 minutes on low. Once fully cooked, turn the heat off and leave the rice undisturbed in it’s cooking pot for 10-15 minutes, then uncover and fluff with a fork.
  6. Transfer to a serving platter and top with the toasted pine nuts. Enjoy!


NOTES:

  • You must rinse the rice to get rid of excess starch which causes rice to be sticky (Lebanese rice is not meant to be sticky). Then soak the rice for 2o minutes or until you can break one grain of rice by pressing it between your index finger and your thumb. This way, you shorten the cooking time making sure the interior of the grain actually cooks before the exterior looses its shape. Remember that the rice to use here should not be partially cooked rice.
  • To give the Lebanese rice flavor right from the start, toast the vermicelli in olive oil until golden brown (as you’ll see in the step-by-step below), then add the rice and toast so that each rice grain is coated with the olive oil.
  • Once the rice is fully cooked, let it rest for 10-15 minutes or so, then fluff it with a fork. This again helps keep it from becoming sticky or gluey.
  • Pro Tips: 1. You must rinse the rice to get rid of excess starch which causes rice to be sticky (Lebanese rice is not meant to be sticky). Then soak the rice in plenty of water for 15-20 minutes or until you can break one grain of rice by pressing it between your index finger and your thumb. 2.toasting the vermicelli in EVOO as a first step is what gives this rice great flavor. Do not skip this step. 3. If you can at all help it, let the rice rest for 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
