Mushrooms are one of my all time favourite vegetables. The idea of having a quick way to prepare them into a healthy, yet delicious snack food is so exciting to me. Meet the crispy mushroom bite. So simple yet so delicious that I have been making them weekly. I just can’t seem to get enough! With a simple almond flour and spice blend they are also gluten free. Yum!
Crispy Mushroom Bites
- 15 – 20 button mushrooms (more if they are very small)
- 1 egg
- 1/2 – 3/4 cup almond flour
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp pepper
- 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
- hot sauce (optional)
Clean the mushrooms and trim the stems. If Mushrooms are different sizes, cut the larger ones in halves or quarters so the all pieces are a similar size.
In a first bowl whisk the one egg. In a second bowl combine the almond flour, salt, pepper and cayenne pepper.
Take the mushrooms and dip them first in the egg and then in the flour mixture making sure they are evenly coated on all sides. Place on a non-stick baking tray.
Preheat the oven to 400F/200C
Baked mushrooms for 10 – 15 minutes or until golden brown, flipping once about half way through cooking.
Once removed from the oven you can dip them in hot sauce or any other sauce you would prefer.
Simple, crunchy and delicious! Enjoy!
