Breading without egg

breading no eggs used

Easy recipe: breading without egg. You’ll only need flour, plant milk, salt, pepper, spices and bread crumbs.

When I make vegan recipes, I don’t use any eggs (of course), so I always make my breading recipes with no eggs. That’s a bit weird maybe, and people often ask me how to do that. So I though I would share the recipe here instead of you should try to google yourself.

When breading with no eggs, you can easily get that crispy and coherent texture – even if you’re making fried or deep-fried vegetables, nuggets, crispy burger patties or meat recipes.

I ofte add some paprika or barbecue spices into my breading mix – as long as it fits into the recipe as well.

It gives an extra crust and taste. And gives a better color than using salt and pepper only. So thats really delicious! But you can easily omit paprika and other spices if you want.

NB: This recipe is made to serve 6 x burger patties or about 12 nuggets.

Easy recipe breading without egg. You'll only need flour, plant milk, salt, pepper, spices and bread crumbs.

In another bowl mix bread crumbs, paprika salt and pepper together.

Fry the pieces in butter or oil on the pan – or deep fry them. You can also cook in the oven until the food is golden and crispy.

Breading with panko bread crumbs:

Most of the time I make my breading dough only of flour and plant milk. I always use outmilk, but you can use any plant milk like almond milk, rice milk or soy milk. And then add some spices into the dough as well like paprika or barbecue. So good and gives a better color.

Breading with no bread crumbs:

You can also make your breading without bread crumbs. Works especially good when making deep fried recipes.

↓ These broccoli bites are made of a paprika dough with flour, some strong harissa spices, beer, salt and pepper. Adding beer into the batter gives a crispy crust. So no breading used here. The broccoli bites are only dipped in the dough and the directly into the can full of oil.
