Fried Mushroom Burger


Mushroom is one of my favorite ingredients for a meatless meal. It took me 2 mistakes to make a perfect delicious fried mushroom, and now I finally made one, the secret ingredient was mix flour with water or a flavor liquid (almond milk, silk milk, and others) to give a crispy taste. I purchase portobello mushroom, they are the perfect mushrooms to use when making a meatless burger. I didn’t want a lot of mushrooms left over so the 2 big portobello mushroom that came in the pack worked.

.main ingredients.

  • 1 Portobello Mushroom
  • 1 cup of All Purpose Flour
  • 1 1/4 cup or 2 cups Water or flavor liquid
  • Panko Breadcrumbs
  • Cooking Oil – I use Canola
  • Seasonings – of your choice


  • Vegan Mayo
  • Dijon Mustard
  • Argula
  • Lettuce
  • Raw Red Onion
  • Hot Sauce


  • Get your batter station together with two bowls – one for the flour and seasoning – second for the breadcrumbs
  • Wash the mushroom and place the mushroom on top of the paper towel to get most of the water off .
  • Place flour in the bowl, add different seasonings of your choice and blend the flour and the seasoning together before adding water or any liquid your choice.
  • Place the breadcrumbs in another bowl.
  • When adding water to the flour you want a nice thick not water down texture so the batter can stay on the mushroom while cooking and not only that have a perfect golden brown color.
  • Add 1 1/4 cups or 2 cups of water or liquid of your choice until its smooth with no lumps in the mix.
  • I cut the mushroom into flour, it doesn’t matter leave it whole or cut it in sections.
  • Place the mushrooms in the flour batter, gently mix them around the batter and let it sit for about 5 minutes.
  • While the mushrooms is bathing, pour cooking oil in the pan, turn on stove on MED and let it warm up.
  • Here is the fun and messy part, tranfering the mushroom from one batter to another without getting your hands messy – I use 2 spoons to tranfer the mushrooms from the flour batter to breadcrumb station and place them on a plate.
  • Here comes the magic – tranfering the mushrooms to the frying pan and watch them turn golden brown.
  • It don’t take long for them to cook: 5 minutes on both sides – 10 minutes all together
  • Place the fried mushrooms on paper towels to soak some of the cooking oil.
  • Let it cool down for about 2-3 minutes before servings.
