Recipe Card


  • 1 pound oyster mushrooms
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup non-dairy milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ginger, minced
  • 1/2 tablespoon marmite
  • 1/2 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup vegetable stock/water
  • 1/2 tablespoon cornstarch
  • salt, to taste


  • Step 1

    Mix ⅓ cup of flour, non-dairy milk and ½ tsp of salt. Whisk together the remaining flour and salt.⁠

  • Step 2

    Dip each oyster mushroom in the wet batter, shake off the excess liquid, then coat in the flour. Press it firmly so that the flour sticks to the mushroom.⁠

  • Step 3

    In a large pan over medium heat, pour enough oil to cover the surface of the pan. Once the oil is hot*, place the coated mushrooms in and fry for 4-5 minutes until golden brown. Flip and repeat on the other side. Remove from the pan and set aside.

  • Step 4

    In the same pan, cook the garlic and ginger until fragrant. Add in the marmite, brown sugar and cornstarch dissolved in the vegetable stock/water. Stir together until the sauce becomes thick. Season with salt to taste.⁠

  • Step 5

    Turn off the heat and add in the fried mushrooms. Toss until everything is evenly coated.⁠

  • Step 6

    Garnish with scallions and toasted white sesame seeds. Serve immediately with rice and vegetable of choice. Enjoy!
