  • 8 oz button mushrooms one package, approx 12 shrooms

Fry Batter

  • 3 Tablespoons tahini *see notes for tahini
  • 1 egg pasture raised
  • 1 Tablespoon red wine vinegar OR coconut aminos, OR dry sherry

  2. Mix batter ingredients together well, in a small mixing bowl.

  3. Gently rinse off mushrooms, and pat dry with a paper towel.

  4. Dip mushrooms in batter, rolling around for an even coat.

  5. Bake batter covered mushrooms for 18 to 22 minutes, (recommend lining baking sheet with parchment paper) until mushrooms turn a light golden brown, on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

  6. Let cool a few minutes before biting in, as they will be hot!
