Mushroom Jerky

  • Yield : 6 Strips
  • Prep Time : 20m
  • Cook Time : 40m
  • Ready In : 60m

I am in love with the vegan jerky you can buy in the store.  The problem is the stuff can get pricey.  There are tons of examples of how to make it online.  I decided to give it a try.  It did not come out quite like the store bought version, but it is a pretty tasty snack.


  • 8oz of Mushrooms (any kind is fine)
  • 1/2 Cup of Vital Wheat Gluten
  • 2 Tablespoons of Soy Sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons of Hot Chili Oil
  • 1 Teaspoon of Garlic Powder
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoons of Onion Powder
  • 2 Tablespoons of Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 Cup of BBQ Sauce


Step 1

Place mushrooms in food processor. Process until chopped in small pieces.

Step 2

Add soy sauce, oil, garlic powder, onion powder, sugar, and wheat gluten. Process until smooth.

Step 3

Pre heat oven to 400f degrees.

Step 4

While oven is preheating, remove mushroom mixture from processor. Place on a flat surface and shape into a thin rectangle. I used a rolling pin to get it flat.

Step 5

Slice the rectangle into thin strips. They should be about an inch wide.

Step 6

Place strips on baking sheet. Cook for 15 minutes and then flip. Cook for 15 more minutes.

Step 7

Remove from oven and brush on BBQ sauce on both sides of strip. Cook for 5 - 10 more minutes, or until sauce has thickened.

Step 8

Remove from heat and enjoy!
