Bang Bang Mushrooms

These Bang Bang Lion's Mane Mushrooms are so good! They have a crispy exterior and are juicy and tender on the inside. Made in the airfryer and, with cornflakes used for the breading as opposed to flour, they are a bit on the lighter side as well! They're incredibly well seasoned and the Bang Bang Sauce is the perfect topping for these crispy nuggets. You definitely won't regret giving these a try!

These are incredibly easy to make. You do have to keep in mind that these mushrooms retain A TON of moisture. One important step to ensure that you don't bite into a soggy nugget is to take the time to squeeze out all of the excess moisture before breading. Also, the smaller you break up the pieces the better they will cook through. You want them juicy but definitely not soggy. Keep these tips in mind and you will have an amazing plate of crispy savory wings in no time!


What you need:

For the mushrooms

Large fist sized head of Lion's Mane Mushrooms

1 1/2 Cups Cornflakes

1 1/2 Cups Just Egg

Black Pepper to Taste

Sea Salt to Taste

Smoked Paprika to Taste

Italian Seasoning to Taste

Onion Powder to Taste

Garlic Powder to Taste

For the Bang Bang Sauce

1/2 Cup Vegan Mayo

3 TBSP Sweet Chili Sauce, plant based

2 TBSP Sriracha sauce

1 TSP Rice Vinegar


Clean your mushrooms and thoroughly squeeze out any excess moisture in them. Break them into bite sized chunks. Season and toss them in all of the spices. Crush the Cornflakes in a bag and place them in a bowl. Season and toss with all of the spices. Place the Just Egg in a bowl. Season lightly with all of the spices and mix together well.

Double bread the mushrooms by first placing them in the egg and allowing the excess egg to slide off before coating them in the seasoned cornflakes. Repeat. Pop them in the air fryer until lightly browned and crisp.

While the mushrooms are frying whip together the sauce ingredients in a bowl. Feel free to adjust measurements to taste! Once the mushrooms are ready top them with the sauce and reserve extra sauce on the side for dipping.
