Vegan Calamari

Photo By: Sierra Burton @sielburt

Calamari, as a non vegan you either hated it or loved it. I happened to love it so I knew I needed to make a cruelty free version. I was beyond thrilled with how this recipe turned out. The lightly floured and seasoned mushrooms fry up to the most perfect bite of deliciousness. Even if you didn't like Calamari i suggest giving this a go, it is THAT GOOD!


2-3 large King oyster mushrooms

1 8-10oz package of Enoki mushrooms

½ cup of flour

1 tsp of dried parsley

1 tsp of salt

½ teaspoon of garlic powder

Pinch of pepper



Oil for frying


Slice your kings mushrooms into ½ thick slices

Using a small knife cut a circle into each slice and remove the center

(Feel free to use the center in another recipe)

Repeat with remaining slices

Heat your oil in a small sauce pan

In a small bowl mix together your flour, parsley, salt, garlic powder and pepper

Place your king oyster rings into the flour

Toss around to evenly coat well with flour

Drop them into the hot oil

Allow to fry for roughly 5-7 minutes until golden brown and crispy* Remove and drain on paper towel

Repeat until all king oysters have been fried

Remove ½ inch bottom of enoki mushrooms (according to package)

Place into remaining flower, toss to evenly coat

Place into fryer, these should take 2-3 minutes until golden

Remove and drain on paper towel

Plate and serve with lemons and marinara sauce

*fryers and temperature may vary so just watch the fryer. Could take shorter or longer to brown.
