I’m proud to feature another easy, delicious recipe from guest blogger, Marla Zarris Zapanta. This time, Marla shows us how to veganize “Pritchon” or fried roasted pig.

Inspired by Malou Nievera’s mouth-watering recipe for ‘Pritchon’ on her blog, Skip To Malou, and craving something crispy, I was determined to create a vegan version.
I often use mushrooms as a meat substitute since transitioning to a plant-based diet. I replaced the lechon kawali (roast pork) in Malou’s original recipe with crispy oyster mushrooms. I learned to make the mushroom ‘chicharon‘ from AstigVegan, of course. If it’s true that you are what you eat, it won’t be long before I turn into a mushroom.
The recipe is as easy as can be. The results, delicious!
