Vegan cheese sticks with apple barbecue dip

Updated: Sep 20, 2023

Like the beloved mozzarella sticks from childhood, but completely vegan. Ideal for parties or as a snack in between. They are melt-in-your-mouth on the inside, crispy on the outside and taste simply fantastic, especially with the apple BBQ sauce. Ready?

Ingredients for the sticks:

150 g Viva La Faba cheese

150 g flour

80 g chickpea flour

250 ml water

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp smoked paprika powder

1/4 tsp cumin

150 g panko or breadcrumbs

Step 1: Separately place the flour, panko and chickpea flour in three bowls.

Step 2: Add the smoked paprika, cumin and salt to the chickpea flour. Mix with water to form a thick batter that replaces the egg when breading.

Step 3: Cut the cheese into the desired size and roll it first in flour, then in the chickpea egg substitute and finally in panko.

Step 4: Fry in a pan and turn carefully or deep-fry in a pot with oil until golden brown.

Ingredients for the apple BBQ sauce (for 2 liters):

5 cloves of garlic

3 red onions

1 white onion

3-5 red apples (depending on size you need more or less)

6 tbsp tomato paste

5 tbsp maple syrup

500 ml dark beer (optional, can also be replaced with more tomatoes or apple juice)

800 ml peeled tomatoes (can)

2 tbsp mustard

3 tbsp soy sauce

1-2 tsp liquid smoke

2 tbsp dark balsamic vinegar

some smoked paprika powder

some cumin

Salt to taste

Step 1: First chop the onions, garlic and apples, fry them in a pot, then add the tomato paste and roast.

Step 2: Deglaze with the maple syrup, the peeled tomatoes and the dark beer.

Step 3: Simmer for about half an hour until the apples and onions are soft.

Step 4: Add the remaining ingredients and simmer for another 10 minutes until the mixture is thick.

Step 5: Mix everything finely. If there are any pieces, pass them through a sieve if necessary.

The sauce can be stored in a preserving jar in the refrigerator for approx. 6 months.
