Whizzy, better, cheaper and more hygienic
Vegan breading without eggs is still a rarity, specially in countries where a lot of people eat a lot of breaded food like cutlets and chicken nuggets. However, vegans need in addition to the animal-friendly and tasty cutlets made from soy, seitan, tofu, etc. a suitable replacement for the eggs, which are unfortunately usually used for breading. But not only vegans delight in the variant without eggs. Gourmet cooks want to offer something quality and ingenious to their guests and even in own kitchen there is sometimes even no egg available. And if you want it cheaper, you’ll preferably take directly the moreover better and vegan alternative. On top of that you do not have to worry about salmonellae.
Vegan breading without eggs is easy and there are also a few ways that lead to the desired result, today I’ll present you a few of them.
Instead of the eggs I use some other delicious alternatives in my kitchen. Usually I only have the breadcrumbs and plain flour at home. But thanks to the ingenious and varied vegan cuisine I am very flexible and usually I find something suitable what is available, or even better: something is even already open!
Flour is not necessary, but if it exists, you should use it too. If you like it spicy, you should grab some spice quickly from the spice rack: pepper, salt, curry, paprika, … I find also horseradish and tomato paste quite interesting.
As actual replacement for the eggs, I’ll just take one of these more or less conventional products which are mostly always at home:
- Soy milk
- Coconut milk
- Oat Milk
- Water (works also!)
I have the best results ever with soy milk. To take extra soy flour for the egg replacement is actually not profitable.
Vegan breading without eggs – simple preparation
1Season the pieces you want to bread with spice like salt and pepper
2Dip each piece into the flour
3Dip it in the egg replacement like soy milk or water (you could also spice it with horseradish and/or tomato paste, …)
3Lay the pieces in the bread crumbs, turn it over and press it into the breading to coat
For the frying pan I’d love to use coconut oil, not only because it’s tasteless. Since a few years we use the coconut oil from Viva Labs Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, 54 Ounce. We recommend it without reservation!
