Barbecue Pulled Mushrooms (serves 4)

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 small packages of white mushrooms (cut length wise into thin match sticks)
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 5 garlic cubes, crushed & chopped
  • 2 cups of cherry tomatoes
  • 1 c Sweet & Spicy Barbecue sauce (Organic Truth) or substitute your favorite sweet & spicy BBQ sauce
  • 1 tsp salt, add more if needed
  • 1 T Bragg Aminos
  • 1 T cumin powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp pepper

DIRECTIONS

  1. In a large skillet with grape seed oil, preheated to medium heat, add onion, garlic, cumin, salt, pepper. Let cook for approximately 6 min until onions are soft.
  2. Then add chopped mushrooms, and lower heat down to medium low as you continue to cook mushrooms for another 5-6 minutes, until the mushrooms become slightly browned and begin to resemble a pulled meat texture.
  3. Then add whole cherry tomatoes, let cook for another 5 -7 min until tomatoes are completely cooked and broken down. (You can expedite the process by smashing tomatoes with a wooden spoon) while they are cooking.
  4. Once tomatoes have been cooked in, leave it cooking until mushrooms and tomatoes have almost cooked out all the moisture.
  5. Add barbecue sauce and let cook for another minute.
  6. Lastly, transfer onto a baking sheet using parchment paper or foil.
  7. Cook on high broil for another 4-5 min, until slightly crispy over the top.
