These vegan baked mushroom fries are an absolute dream! Crispy on the outside, juicy on the inside and super easy to make.
If you’re thinking you can only use potatoes to make delicious fries, think again! For this recipe, we’re using portobello mushrooms. Coated in a flavourful parsley-breadcrumb mixture and baked in the oven without any fat, they’re a healthy and super tasty alternative to traditional French fries.
What are portobello mushrooms?
Portobello mushrooms have a large, flat, dark brown cap that grows up to 5 inches in diameter when mature. They’re rich flavoured, have a meaty texture and are extremely versatile. Grill them as a whole to make veggie burgers, chop into soups and stews or hollow out to stuff with a variety of fillings.
