Fried Oyster Mushrooms (Vegan Fried Chicken)
This is my take on Vegan Fried Chicken with these Fried Oyster Mushrooms. They are super crispy with a double batter and so easy to make!
Wipe oyster mushrooms with a damp paper towel to remove any dirt
In a large bowl, add the flour and all the spices. Mix together until well combined
In a second bowl, add ⅓ cup of the flour mixture with ¾ cups of water. Whisk together until to achieve a smooth batter consistency
Dip each mushroom into the wet batter mixture then into the flour mixture. Double coat each mushroom back into the wet batter and then back in the flour mixture, making sure the mushrooms are fully coated in flour
Heat oil in a pot over high heat and carefully drop mushrooms into the oil one at a time in batches. Don't overcrowd the pot, you can fry a few at a time depending how large your pot is. Let them fry for a few minutes until nice and golden on all sides
Remove and place on paper towels to remove excess oil, then place on a cooling rack to keep crispy until the rest is done. Enjoy with your favourite dipping sauce!
- The information on the nutritional table is based on the mushrooms being “uncooked” so the frying oil is not included. This will vary on the type of oil that’s being used
