Kentucky Fried Mushrooms
Blue, Pink, or Yellow Oyster Mushrooms
½ cup white spelt flour
2 tbsp chickpea flour
Sprig water or plant-based milk
Begin by cleaning the mushrooms and removing any dirt using a damp paper towel. If the mushrooms are large, cut them into bite-sized pieces.
In a bowl, mix together white spelt flour, chickpea flour, sea salt, cayenne, and onion powder. Adjust the seasonings according to your taste.
In another bowl, add the same mixture and then pour in spring water or plant-based milk to create a thin wet batter. Be careful not to make it too thin.
Dip each mushroom piece into the wet batter, ensuring that it is fully coated, and then toss and coat it with the seasoned dry flour mixture. Make sure each piece is well-coated.
Place the coated mushrooms on top of parchment paper on a baking sheet. Drizzle a small amount of oil over each piece.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and bake the mushrooms for 8 minutes on each side.
Transfer the cooked mushrooms to a plate lined with paper towels to drain excess oil.
Serve the Kentucky fried mushrooms while hot and enjoy!
