Chef Mollie’s Vegan Mushroom Scallop Recipe

One of our June 2021 Chef of the Month‘s favorite dishes, the Vegan Mushroom Scallop Recipe is also vegan-friendly! Chef Mollie especially loves this dish because of the “bright, powerful components that come together in a delicate harmony”. She enthuses about being able to taste each layer of flavor without any of the flavors overshadowing each other. “It’s a graceful balance of extravagance and subtlety”. Find the recipe below!

vegan mushroom scallop recipe


  • 3 large king oyster mushrooms, caps removed & reserved for other use.
    • Stems sliced into one inch rounds similar to scallops
  • 1 c veg stock
  • 1 in piece of Kombu or 1 tsp dried kelp powder
  • ¼ c champagne or white wine
  • ¼ c yuzu ponzu sauce
  • 1 T white miso
  • 2 seaweed snacks, torn
  • 3 cloves garlic, smashed & halved
  • 4 slices ginger
  • 2 Tbs Vegan Butter mixed with ½ Tbs Miso Paste
  • Grapeseed/Neutral Oil


  1. Combine all marinade ingredients in a sauce pan and bring to almost a boil, then remove from heat.
  2. While marinade is heating, score both sides of the mushrooms in a crosshatch pattern, making sure to not cut through the mushroom.
  3. Place in a shallow dish, and cover with marinade for 3-6 hours
  4. Remove mushrooms and pat dry. Heat sauté pan over high heat with oil. Sear on each side 1-2 minutes til a golden char begins to form. Add Vegan miso butter and baste for additional 1-2 minutes.
  5. Remove and drain on paper towels.
