Pulled Mushroom Burgers

Oh summer is here and that calls for BBQ’s! Vegan’s can BBQ just as good as a meat eater, and to prove it, try these Pulled Mushroom Burgers. Topped with tangy vegan coleslaw and a side of roasted potatoes – hang on, just started drooling.

Whitney Barkman - Pulled Mushroom Burgers (1)

Mushrooms are an amazing substitute for meat burgers. Why? Because of their texture. Once they’re roasted or cooked, they soften and you’re able to pull them apart as you would pulled pork. Pop over a toasted bun with mayo. add on a tangy, crunchy vegan slaw. And dig in. 

What pairs with a burger better than fries? Well, roasted potatoes fit the bill. Crispy on the outside, soft and fluffy on the inside. 

This meal is so satisfying and perfect for warm summer evenings after a day full of activities.
