I am here to give you a short, simple and easy recipe without wasting your time.
This is a King Oyster mushroom.
Next thing you want to do is shred up your mushroom. If you want to blanch it first that might work well, but I did not choose to do so.
You can use a fork and your hands to get the desired shreds.
I heated up some vegan butter in a pan with onions and then added celery and oyster mushrooms for that “dark meat.” You can use water instead or veg stock instead of oil or butter.
Keep it on medium heat and make sure you keep tossing it around with a spatula or whatever utensil you desire.
Add your Buffalo sauce! Jason had made a Buffalo sauce using vegan butter and Frank’s Red Hot, but you can use whatever you love.
You can use this for sandwiches, pitas, wraps, tacos, eat it with rice, make a burrito bowl, etc…there are a lot of things you can do with this. I was excited for Buffalo chicken tacos & wraps!
Obviously the protein content from mushrooms is not identical to that of chicken so make sure if you are using this as a substitute to include veggies, beans, grains, etc. for your protein as well 🙂
Jason created his own shredded chicken with King Oyster Mushrooms as well. I won’t spoil it for you – I’ll let him share his marinade & recipe with you in future posts.
I hope you go out and try this, because the texture is spot on, flavors are amazing & you will be so satisfied 😌
2 King Oyster Mushrooms
1 yellow onion
3 celery stalks
2 cups of Buffalo sauce
Vegan butter or water for the pan
1) Cut up your onions and sautee them in the pan with butter or water
2) Either blanch your king Oyster mushrooms quickly or just shred them into chicken type shreds with your hands, knife or fork (whichever works best for you!)
3) Add the mushrooms to the sautéed onions along with more mushroom and the chopped celery
4) Keep stirring this up and keep an eye on it. It will stay on medium heat for about 10-15 minutes.
5) Add your Buffalo sauce and lower your heat a bit, let it sit in the sauce and simmer for 15 minutes
6) Let it sit for 20 minutes or so to soak up all the flavors and thicken a bit before you serve!
