This vegan version of beef jerky has the same level of smoky spice you'd expect from the real thing. It can be enjoyed as a snack or on top of a salad for a jolt of meaty, umami goodness. It's also a great snack to take camping! The mushrooms stay pretty chewy (no crunch except for some of the crispy ends); this method is a great option if you don't have a dehydrator.

  • Preheat oven to 250 degrees F. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper and set a wire rack on each of the baking sheets.

  • Divide the mushrooms between the prepared racks, arranging them in a single layer, making sure not to overlap. Roast, rotating the pans halfway through, until the mushrooms are dried and shrunken, about 1 1/2 hours. They should have a chewy texture with crisp edges. Remove from oven and let cool completely.

Tips

To make ahead: Marinate mushrooms (Step 1) for 8 hours or overnight. Refrigerate jerky in an airtight container for up to 5 days.

Equipment: Parchment paper

What a great snack! I love that this lasts for several days after you make it. The flavor of the mushrooms gets really concentrated. Read More
