These Lectin-Free Vegan "Cheesy" Oven Baked Mushrooms are the perfect healthy snack and even a favorite for a party or gathering - just make sure you make enough because they will disappear!
I've made several "oven-baked" veggie recipes with my Gluten-Free Vegan Bread Crumbs, like Gluten-Free Vegan Oven Baked Zucchini Fries, Gluten-Free Vegan Oven Baked Zucchini Chips, Gluten-Free Vegan Oven Baked Okra Bites, Healthy Oven Baked Green Tomatoes and Gluten-Free Vegan Oven Baked Avocado Fries.
But as much as I like them all, I have to say that these have to be my most favorite (especially since they're made with a lectin-free veggie)!
This is definitely a recipe that you will want to double or triple - if you want to share 🙂
I may or may not have eaten the entire batch myself, but my non-mushroom loving sons even loved them and they will not normally touch - anything - with mushrooms in it.
Don't worry if you aren't a big fan of mushrooms, they don't really taste much like mushrooms but have a golden, spicy, crispy coating that looks and tastes like they are fried, but aren't.
And, you can even use them as a topping for a salad in place of regular croutons!
This healthy recipe is vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, lectin-free, egg-free, soy-free and paleo-friendly.

Lectin-Free Vegan "Cheesy" Oven Baked Mushrooms
Yield 1 - 2 servings
Vegan / Gluten-Free / Dairy-Free / Lectin-Free / Egg-Free / Soy-Free / Paleo-Friendly
For the seasoning:
- 1/2 cup almond flour
- 1/2 cup nutritional yeast
- 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon organic ground cayenne pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon organic ground garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon Himalayan pink salt
- 2 cups organic baby bella mushrooms (de-stemmed, sliced)
- 1 cup homemade almond milk
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Prepare the seasoning:
- Add all ingredients for the seasoning to a small bowl and stir until well combined. Adjust the seasonings (cayenne pepper, garlic and salt) to your preference. If you don't want them too spicy, just use 1/4 teaspoon or less of cayenne pepper. Set aside.
- De-stem and slice the mushrooms. Set aside.
- Start an assembly line in this order: a) small bowl with sliced mushrooms b) small bowl with almond milk c) small bowl with 1/2 of the seasoning mix d) baking pan lined with parchment paper
- You will need to coat the mushrooms in (2) separate batches, so start with (1) cup of the mushrooms and 1/2 of the seasoning mixture.
- Place the (1) cup of mushrooms in the small bowl of milk, toss them around until they are all coated, then using a fork, take them out of the bowl of milk, let the excess milk drip off, and put them in the bowl of seasoning. Toss them around until they are all covered with the seasoning mixture. Transfer them them onto the baking pan lined with parchment paper and with your fork, gently spread them out evenly onto the pan so they aren't overlapping or on top of each other.
- Repeat Step 5 with the other (1) cup of mushrooms, using the same bowl of milk, and the other 1/2 of the seasoning mixture.
- Bake at 425 degrees for 10 minutes.
- Remove the pan from the oven, and flip over the mushrooms so the other side can bake.
- Return them to the oven for an additional 10 minutes.
- Remove from oven and serve (they are best when served hot from the oven).
