Yummy burgers for a meat free Monday, sautéed pulled oyster mushrooms, served on a bun with a lettuce slaw. A burger for barbecue lovers that you can make on the stove and enjoy all year round.
A wonderful take on comfort food. This take on a pulled classic burger, with shredded, meaty mushrooms are coated in barbecue sauce, and sandwiched in a soft bun, topped with a slaw. This pulled mushroom burger is a sweet and tangy mess, you can’t believe it is meat free.
Makes about 4 burgers , depending on bun size
1 onion, chopped
1 kg oyster mushrooms
1 tsp ground cumin
Salt and pepper, to taste
4 Burger buns
2 baby romaine lettuce
1 english cucumber
2-3 dl sour cream
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 tbsp mustard
Salt and pepper to taste
To make the bbq mushrooms, saute onion over medium heat with vegetable oil for 2 minutes.
Add the mushrooms and saute until limp. Then add in spices and stir to combine, cook for another 2-3 minutes.
Then add bbq sauce and stir, heat over medium low heat for another 2-3 minutes untill the bqq sauce and mushrooms are heated through.. The bbq sauce should be nicely coating the mushrooms, sticky without runny sauce, and still moist and sauced.
To make the lettuce slaw, thinly cut the romaine lettuce, shred the apples and cucumber. Mix this with the sour cream, garlic powder and mustard, salt and pepper to taste.
Assemble the burgers with a good layer of pulled bbq mushrooms and then lettuce slaw on top.
In the picture below, I made them without bbq sauce and only seasoned it with salt and pepper, this way you can really taste the mushrooms.
Give this a try and enjoy a meat freemeal.
