Calories 163 kcal


  • 3 heaping cups of FreshlyGrounds oyster mushrooms

  • 2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil 

  • 1 tsp smoked paprika

  • ¼ tsp salt

  • ¼ tsp cayenne pepper

  • 2 cloves garlic minced

  • ¼ cup BBQ sauce 


  1. Shred Mushrooms: Preheat oven to 204 C. Clean mushrooms with a damp paper towel. Using two forks, shred the stems and caps roughly into pieces. Set on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. 

  2. Bake: Drizzle with 1 Tbsp of the oil, paprika, salt, cayenne, and garlic. Toss around to evenly coat the mushrooms, then bake for 20 minutes, or until mushrooms are a bit crispy and brown on the edges.

  3. Sauté: Heat remaining 1 Tbsp oil in a large saute pan over medium high. Transfer cooked mushrooms to pan and add BBQ sauce. Stir and cook for 3 to 5 minutes, until mixture is thick and fragrant. Serve warm on sandwiches, nachos, salads or tacos.
