Vegan Oyster Mushroom Caesar Salad — Green Kitchen Stories
We haven’t been posting new recipes here for a while since we have just gone through with our big move to Denmark. Everything is still very new and pretty chaotic to be honest as we are trying to find our way in our new house. But the kids are doing well and have adapted quickly to their new schools, Luise is doing her midwife internship at a Rigshospitalet in Copenhagen and I’m working on starting a Green Kitchen Studio here in Copenhagen. We’ll share more about us and the move in another post once we are further settled in. Right now I just wanted all of you to try this recipe.
I kept seeing this cool way of searing mushrooms on several sources online. The technique is that you press them between two pans on medium high heat so they release liquids and get a really crunchy outer texture. And then add a marinade that they soak up and become packed with flavor. I think the technique is credited to Derek Sarno and the result is pretty remarkable and the texture reminded me almost of chicken (although don’t take my word for it, I haven’t eaten chicken in 25 years). Anyway, they get both crunchy and juicy flavorful at the same time. You can see how I do it in this reels video. We serve the mushrooms with an easy vegan caesar that we make by simply tossing romaine lettuce in a dead simple dressing with just vegan mayo, a splash of vinegar and capers instead of the traditional anchovies and warm chickpeas instead of croutons. It’s a truly delicious meal. Promise. Let us know what you think if you try it!
