Veganuary with Honestly Tasty | Deep Fried Shamembert Bites

Emma ShermanJanuary 07, 2022

If you're embracing Vegnaury in 2022 you might be missing your favourite cheesy treats! 

Fortunately, we've been chatting to Honestly Tasty, who were kind enough to give us some vegan cooking inspiration, to carry us through Veganuary and beyond! Below, they share one of their most popular recipes from last year.... deep fried shamembert bites. 

Here's how:


1 Honestly Tasty Shamembert

1 small slice bread (processed into fine breadcrumbs)

¾ tsp paprika

2 tbsp ground almonds

2 tbsp plain flour

Salt & pepper to season

1/3 cup cornflour 

Oil to fry


Chop Sham into 6 pieces. In one bowl, mix together the breadcrumbs, paprika, ground almonds, flour & seasoning. In a separate bowl, make a cornflour ‘slurry’, mixing 1/3 cup cornflour with 1/3 water.

Dip each piece into the cornflour mixture, then straight in the breadcrumb mixture to coat completely and place on a board ready to fry. 

Heat vegetable or sunflower oil in a large frying pan a couple of inches thick. Heat up to about 180c (or until a small piece of bread browns in about 30 seconds). 

Add the cheese wedges to the pan (be careful in case the oil spits a little) – and fry for a couple of minutes on each side until both are golden brown. Make sure to keep an eye on them in case they start to leak. Once well fried, scoop out your cheese wedges carefully and serve with chutney.
