Cheese-less Thick Sticks

These cheese-less thick sticks are a variation on cheese straws. Being larger makes them perfect for dips, nibbles, packed lunches, picnics and as part of a party food platter. Fun and easy for kids to make and as they’re so quick to do, you’ll have them on the wire rack cooling off ready to eat before you know it!

Vegan Calling started as a number of scribbled down notes, recipe cards and our adaptations of favourite meals! We originally wanted to create a place for all these recipes to go so we originally thought of a cookbook. However, an online database allows us to not only avoid various stains and spills, we’re also now able to share our recipes with the rest of the web. Non-Vegan friends that come around for meals are always surprised at how delicious our various starters, main meals, desserts and everything in between taste so good! They’re always asking how we make them so wonderful without using animal products – this site lets them and everyone else know how we do it!
