From the author, Terrence Paschal: I am in love with the vegan jerky you can buy in the store, but the problem is that stuff can get pricey. I decided to try and make my own. I’ve got to be honest, it didn't come out exactly like the store-bought version, but it is a pretty tasty snack.
From Plant-Based on a Budget: If you are looking for a healthier alternative to jerky, then we are happy to report that there’s a wide variety of plant-based recipes you can turn to. This Mushroom Jerky is one of our favorites and we think you might love it too! It’s smokey, sweet, salty, and spicy, so brace yourself for a good flavor punch.
Mushrooms are truly magic. Not only because of how spontaneously they grow all around or how many medicinal uses they possess, but also because they are so incredibly versatile when it comes to cooking (especially plant-based cooking!). Their meaty texture and sponge-like qualities make for the perfect base to try new creations.
This Mushroom Jerky is the perfect example. The mushrooms absorb all the delicious flavors of the marinade and it works out perfectly. Excited to try this plant-based Mushroom Jerky recipe?
This jerky is the perfect addition to a tasty sandwich. Let’s call it a JLT (similar to a BLT). Spread some vegan mayonnaise on two toasted slices of bread, layer with some crispy romain (or iceberg lettuce), some tomato slices, and a few slices of the jerky. And voila, you have yourself a JLT for lunch. Enjoy!
