Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 30 minutes
- 6 large portobella mushrooms*
- 1 tsp (5 mL) vegetable oil
- 2 cups (500 mL) sliced onions
- 1/4 tsp (2 mL) each salt and pepper
- 1/2 cup (125 mL) favourite BBQ sauce
Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C). Remove the stems of the portobella and set aside. Remove the gills from the mushroom caps and place mushroom caps, bottom side up, on a parchment lined baking sheet. Cook for 20 minutes.
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add in onions, salt and pepper. Cook for 8 minutes stirring. Meanwhile, use your hands or two forks to “pull” the mushroom stems apart. Remove mushrooms from the oven and once cool enough to handle shred the mushrooms using your hands or two forks.
Stir shredded mushrooms into the onions and BBQ sauce. Cook stirring over medium-low for five minutes. Serve as a sandwich, in lettuce wraps or use in tacos.
*If using king oyster mushrooms, follow same process but use 1 lb (500 g).
