These mushroom skulls are eerily delicious! Try them out as a spooky side dish or add to your favorite pasta recipe or quinoa salad. BON APPETIT!

Ingredients

  • 1 – 454 g container button mushrooms
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • garlic powder, or to taste
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Preparation

  1. Clean and halve your mushrooms. If needed, cut down the stems to straighten the edge.
  2. Use a plastic or metal straw to make two holes for eyes on the cap of each mushroom. Twisting the straw or squeezing sometimes helps to remove each piece.
  3. Make a triangular cut between the eyes on each cap to make a skull nose.
  4. Next, make small parallel cuts on the stem of the mushroom to form the teeth.
  5. Heat some coconut oil in a frying pan and once melted, add your mushrooms, skull side up.
  6. Add a splash of water to encourage the mushrooms to “bleed out” (release their juices).
  7. Sauté for 3-4 minutes over medium heat with a sprinkle of garlic powder, salt and pepper, to taste. 
  8. Once mushrooms start to brown, flip and sauté for another 30 seconds. Don’t sauté too long face-side down or the mushrooms start to lose their shape.  
  9. Remove from heat and enjoy your spooky Mushroom Skulls on their own or add to your favorite pasta dish, quinoa salad, etc!
