Crispy Portobello Mushroom Fries
Recipe from HowSweetEats.com
- 4 portobello mushroom caps, sliced
- 2 egg whites
- 1 1/2 cups panko bread crumbs
- 1/4 cup flour
- 1/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
- 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil and place a wire rack on top. Spray it with non-stick spray.
Add bread crumbs, flour, salt, pepper and paprika to a bowl and mix. In a smaller bowl, lightly beat 2 egg whites. Dip each mushroom slice in the egg white and then coat in the breadcrumb mixture, pressing to adhere. Lay on the wire rack and repeat with the other slices. Spray each slice with a spritz of olive oil (spray it, don’t drizzle) before putting it in the oven. Bake for 7 minutes, then flip and spray the other side with olive oil. Bake for 7 more minutes.
While the mushrooms are cooking, heat the vinegar in a small saucepan over medium heat. Allow it to come to a simmer then reduce to low heat, cooking until syrupy and thick, about 5-7 minutes. Let sit at room temperature to thicken a bit more.
Drizzle balsamic over mushrooms and serve with dipping sauce.
