Pulled Oyster Mushroom Sandwiches in BBQ Sauce with Slaw

Ingredients:

  • King Oyster mushrooms, 400 grams (8 cups shredded)
  • Red cabbage, 3 cups shredded
  • Coriander leaves, 1 cup roughly chopped (Leave this out of if you’re not a coriander fan)
  • Carrots, 3 cups julienned – 3 medium carrots (I used a julienne peeler)
  • Multigrain or whole grain buns, 2
  • Olive oil, 1 tbsp
  • Salt, 1/4 tsp

Sauce:

  • Tomato paste, 1/2 cup
  • Water, 1/4 cup
  • Maple syrup, 1 tbsp
  • Apple cider vinegar, 1 tbsp
  • Braggs liquid aminos or low-sodium soy sauce, 2 tbsp
  • Smoked paprika, 1/2 tsp
  • Garlic, 1 clove minced
  • Cracked black pepper to taste

Slaw Dressing:

  • Lime juice, 1 tbsp
  • Fresh orange juice, 5 tbsp
  • Olive oil, 4 tbsp
  • Salt, ¼ tsp

Instructions:

  1. Shred the base or stems of the mushrooms using a fork to help break down the mushrooms into strands. Then use your hands to pull the mushroom strands apart. Set the shredded mushrooms aside in a mixing bowl.
    Make the slaw dressing by combining the ingredients in a jar and shaking well to combine. Set aside.
  2. Prepare the slaw by combining the shredded red cabbage, julienned carrots, and coriander leaves in a large bowl. Set aside.
  3. Make the sauce by combining all of the ingredients in a saucepan. Cook on high heat until the sauce is bubbling, then reduce the heat to low and simmer for 10-minutes. Stirring every couple minutes. Turn off the heat and cover the saucepan.
  4. In a large frying pan, heat up 1 tbsp of olive oil over medium-high heat and toss in the mushrooms once the oil is hot. Coat the mushrooms in oil, and season with ¼ tsp of salt and cracked black pepper to taste. Cook for 10-minutes stirring every minute or so. Allow the mushrooms to get slightly browned.
  5. Add 4 tbsp of sauce to the mushrooms. Cook the mushrooms further in the sauce on low heat for 5 minutes. Stirring every minute or so. Allowing the flavours to meld.
  6. Dress the slaw and then toast the buns. Assemble the sandwich by adding some saucy pulled mushrooms to the bottom of the bun and topping it with some slaw. Enjoy!
