      Delicious! I wouldn't believe they are mushrooms, but they have their own delectable qualities. They are very light and crispy with a slightly bitter (but not in a bad way) aftertaste. I used option #1 and made it vegan by frying them in vegetable oil instead of butter. I enjoyed them with a side of fresh dandelion greens and homemade honey-mustard dressing. It was super, super easy, and I recently learned that all parts of the dandelion are very nutritious. Since I have an ample supply of them, I will be enjoying them all summer! Who says they're weeds? Made as a recipenap for Veg*an Swap, April 2010.

      Wow - these are quick to make. Very good, tasty. I went with batter option #2. I will try this again with the first batter option the next time I go to Whole Foods. This tastes like one of those gourmet healthy snacks that you would buy at Whole Foods or Trader Joes - or any health food store. If you have never tried health food snacks, this might be unusual for you, especially if you are used to the traditional snack food like chips and pringles. This was not greasy and satsifies the urge for something crunchy. You can buy Dandelions at your local organic grocer.
