  • 1 Tablespoon 10 gr of Olive Oil
  • 1 Small Red Onion - 96 gr
  • 3 Oyster Mushrooms - 150 gr
  • 3 Garlic Cloves - 12 gr
  • 1/2 Teaspoon of Dried Chili Flakes
  • 1 Teaspoon of Tamarind Concentrate
  • 2 Fresh Thyme Sprigs
  • 1/4 Teaspoon of Sesame Seed Oil
  • 1/2 Teaspoon of Aka Miso Paste


  1. With the help of a fork, shred the oyster mushrooms. You can do this by holding the mushroom in one hand and shredding the mushroom with your other hand holding the fork. Make sure to always rotate the mushroom to ensure thin shreds.
  2. Finely slice the top of the mushroom and set aside.  Repeat until you have shredded all the oyster mushrooms.
  3. Peel and slice the red onion in half, then finely slice into thin strips.
  4. Heat a saucepan over medium heat. Add olive oil, and red onions and cook until they start to sweat. Add the shredded mushrooms, crush the garlic cloves and add them to the pan along with the dried chili flakes, tamarind concentrate, fresh thyme sprigs, sesame seed oil, and aka miso paste.

  5. Cook for 5 - 10 minutes, adjust seasoning if needed and take off heat.
  6. Add recommended toppings like dill pickles, lettuce, avocado, sliced tomato, lemon juice, Tabasco, and whatever other toppings you might enjoy.
