Crispy Maitake Mushroom with Green Goddess Dip

  • SERVES: 4
  • PREP: 5 minutes
  • TOTAL TIME: 10 minutes

Our take on an all-time great.

Onions are not the only veggie that “blooms” when you fry ‘em. As an homage to one of the greatest appetizers ever created, we’re taking lacy, earthy, maitake mushrooms and bringing them to life by breading and deep-frying them in our Cravings wok. Served with store-bought green goddess dressing, this is a perfect combo of both an appetizer and a conversation starter at your next gathering.

4 oz maitake mushrooms

¾ cup cornstarch

½ cup all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon sea salt

½ teaspoon smoked paprika

½ teaspoon ground cumin

1 ¼ cup canned club soda, cold

2 Tablespoons cornstarch for dusting maitake

Vegetable oil in the wok for deep frying

Green Goddess dressing - store bought
