Disclaimer: If you are new to Fork & Beans, this is a site specifically designed for recipes that are creatively gluten-free and vegan. Though I am not a vegan, I eat a mainly vegan diet and love the creativity it gives me in the kitchen. With that said, this recipe uses decorative oyster shells for these (non-oyster) Baked Oyster Mushrooms for it’s beauty and authenticity it gives to this Gluten-free Vegan “Seafood” Bake series. If you are offended by this, be warned that this post might not be for you. Thank you for all your support!

Using the oyster shells is a creative and fun way to serve your appetizer. You, of course, are not limited to just using the shells. I had to track these down at a shell shop so I understand if you don’t want to go on a shell hunt. Feel free to use ceramic serving spoons, small glasses. or just allow your guests to scoop up the filling from the baking dish onto their plates. Oh choices, you are so plentiful…
