step-by-step directions
  • Preheat oven to 350F. Place mushroom caps (stems removed) on a baking sheet and put in oven for 12-15 minutes until soft. This helps take moisture out of the mushroom for a better fry. Remove mushrooms from oven and pat dry excess moisture.
  • In a medium saute pan heat 1 tablespoon olive oil. Add stems and shallots. Saute for 2-3 minutes. Cool mixture and set aside.
  • Make tempura batter: Combine dry ingredients. Fold in stiff egg whites and then seltzer.
  • Fill each portabello mushroom cap with mushroom stem mixture. Make a sandwich with another cap, secure with toothpicks. Dip in tempura batter, fry in oil at about 360F.
  • Assemble: Place fried mushroom cap on toasted onion bun with aioli and eat 'em up!
