“Fried” Mushrooms

I came across this recipe and can’t wait to try it. They look fantastic and hearty.  Hearty can be hard to come by in a Raw diet without nuts and seeds. This provides a great alternative while filling you up and adding a bit of zest to your recipes.
Original Recipe compliments of Karen Knowler:
This recipe is one of my very favourites. If you love fried mushrooms (the old way) then you will love these even more.

They’re juicy, more-ish and extremely versatile – that’s if you can keep them long enough to add to anything, as usually they go straight away!

WATCH ME DEMO this recipe here.


* Organic mushrooms (Portobello, button or similar shaped)

* Olive oil

* Fresh garlic

* Lemons


1) Peel or thoroughly scrub a generous supply of organic mushrooms

2) Slice each mushroom into slices about 5-7mm thick and set aside in a deep bowl

3) Mix 1-2 cups (depends on amount of mushrooms you have) of olive oil, with juice of 1 lemon, and 2-4 cloves of garlic finely chopped.

4) Pour mixture over mushrooms and coat well.

5) Leave to soak for anything from 10 minutes to 5 hours.

6) Pour off excess oil from the bowl and remove mushrooms. Place them on paper towels to blot off excess oil, taking care to leave some on and also the tiny pieces of fresh garlic.

7) Place mushrooms on Paraflexx sheets (or baking parchment) sheets and dehydrate under 100°F for 4+ hours (depends on how ‘fried’ you would like your mushrooms to look and taste; overnight works great too).

8) When they’re how you like them (taste-test first!) pour them onto some paper kitchen towel to absorb the excess oil (if any) and keep in a bowl ready for serving, eating or adding to recipes or salads.


These can be served as:

* A topping, either on its own or with avocado, tomato or anything else which sounds like a good idea at the time

* A great addition to a salad

* As part of a ‘Sunday breakfast’

* As part of a filling for any kind of wrap

* Pizza topping

* or even as a snack!
