Vegan-friendly Battered 'Calamari'

Vegan Battered Calamari recipe with light golden batter.


Prep: 10m

Cook: 10m

Total: 20m

Serves: 1


  • Ingredients
  • 3 king oyster mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup oat milk
  • 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2tsp sea salt
  • 1/4tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 lemon
  • Rapeseed oil, for shallow frying
  • Method
  • Remove the caps 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.
