A youtuber has shared his original recipe for a popular vegetarian snack. It's so delicious that it's hard to stop eating—the secret lies in the incredibly crunchy breading. If you like oyster mushrooms, you must know this recipe!

The culinary popularity of oyster mushrooms is cyclical. Many of us enjoyed them during our childhood, only to forget about these tasty and healthy mushrooms for decades. Currently, oyster mushrooms are back in favor with double the strength. This resurgence is due to society's desire to expand home menus with new products and the growing popularity of meat-free diets. However, don't be fooled by this trend; these mushrooms are enjoyed not only by vegans but also by regular meat-eaters.

A famous chef tried breaded oyster mushrooms in one of the meat-free restaurants. He liked them so much that he decided to make his own version of this simple snack. Of course, he couldn't resist tweaking the recipe a bit. To achieve the perfect crunchiness, the chef uses whole-grain rye flour, enhancing the flavor with turmeric. We love such combinations and couldn't resist sharing this noble recipe with you!

Breaded oyster mushrooms — chef's recipe


  • 14 oz oyster mushrooms

  1. Cut larger mushrooms into 2-3 pieces. Leave the smaller ones whole.
  2. Transfer the rye flour to a bowl and mix with a teaspoon of turmeric and salt.
  3. Crack the eggs and whisk them.
  4. Bread the oyster mushrooms first in the egg, then in the seasoned whole grain flour.
  5. Heat the oil in a pot. Fry the breaded oyster mushrooms in batches, 5-6 pieces at a time. This process should be fairly quick; chefs mentions about 2 minutes per batch.
  6. Place the fried mushrooms on a rack. This will allow excess moisture to evaporate.
  7. Serve with your favorite sauce. For the chef, it's an extremely hot chili sauce, but if you don't prefer such extreme sensations, we recommend homemade garlic sauce. Enjoy your meal!
