Ingredients

  • 3 king oyster mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup oat milk
  • 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 2tbsp rapeseed oil

Method

Remove the heads from the king oyster mushrooms, saving them for another recipe. Slice the stalk into quarter inch thick slices. Using a knife, or apple corer, make a hole in the centre of the slices to make a calamari style ring. You can use the centres to make scallops (see below).

Combine the flour, milk, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Whisk until a thick batter is formed. Mix the mushroom rings in the batter.

Heat the oil in a large frying pan, fry the rings for around 3-4 minutes per side, until golden brown. Serve with a squeeze of lemon juice over the top.
