This recipe is a bit of a globe trotter. The chickpea batter is inspired by Indian pakoras, yet the mushroom pieces emerge from the oil lightly coated, like Japanese tempura. With its mix of mint, cilantro and lime, the sauce could be Mexican. The mushrooms? Grown right here in Canada. Given the diversity of flavours and ingredients, I’m tagging this an international dish.
We were lucky to have another fantastic group of submissions for this year’s, incredibly competitive, Appetizer Spotlight contest! We had a very, very tough decision on our hands. The Mushrooms Canada staff and the good folks at the Food Bloggers of Canada came together to pick our winner!
With the appetizer contest closed, we’re busy behind the scenes evaluating the competition. Last, but certainly not least, we have one more entry to share before tomorrow’s BIG announcement!!
