A staple on the starter menu in many Irish restaurants, J decided this is what he was missing most from home so we set out to make some Garlic Mushrooms. Gluten Free of course!!
2 cups Gluten Free bread crumbs
1 1/2 cups water
1 cup Gluten Free flour
1/2 cup cornstarch
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp black pepper
Wipe the mushrooms clean with a dry cloth. You may remove stems if you wish but we left them on.
Mix together the flour, cornstarch, baking powder, salt, garlic powder, and black pepper. Add in the water and mix until smooth to create the batter.
Dip each mushroom in the batter, allowing excess to drip off and coat each mushroom in the bread crumbs.
Heat about 2 inches of oil in a large heavy pot to about 350 degrees. Carefully add the mushrooms to the hot oil. Allow the mushrooms to cook for about 7-10 minutes, or until they are golden brown and crispy.
Carefully remove mushrooms from the oil to a paper towel lined plate. Allow the mushrooms to cool for a few minutes before serving with garlic mayonnaise.
To make the garlic mayo I mixed a half cup of mayo with 4 crushed cloves of garlic, and some chopped parsley.
There was some batter left so we tried out a few onion rings too. Not the healthiest of dishes I know but sometimes a reminder of home is just the little pick me up we need....
