How To Bread Without Eggs
When it comes to recipes that are breaded, such as fish sticks, chicken nuggets, Milanesa (breaded fried steak), fried chicken, etc… I substitute the egg dip for buttermilk to help the crumbs mixture bind to the food as it cooks. It works great, and its high acidity level helps tenderize the meats.
If you are trying to avoid dairy products, you can make your own buttermilk by combining 1 cup of unsweetened PLAIN almond milk + with 1 tablespoon of lemon juice. Set aside for 2 minutes and let it thicken a little.
Since my eldest daughter is following the whole 30 diet, I got curious about how to bread food without breadcrumbs. So after a little bit of investigation, I started to experiment with several combinations. The substitute I liked most was the combination of almond flour and tapioca.
So if you are looking for a substitution for bread crumbs, try mixing 1 cup of almond flour with 1 tablespoon of tapioca flour or arrowroot starch flour. I also like to add salt, pepper, and other spices, like paprika, Italian seasoning, etc., to the mix for extra flavor.
If you are following the KETO diet mix, 1 cup of almond flour with 1 tablespoon of unflavored whey protein isolate powder. Add salt, pepper, and other spices, like paprika, Italian seasoning, etc., to the mix for extra flavor.
