If you have not cooked your mushrooms like this you do not know what you are missing. Especially if you like sweet recipes. Tocino mushrooms. A Filipino vegan recipe that you will love.
Normally this Filipino dish is made with pork and is sweet and sour. I kept the sweetness and put the pork aside. I turned the recipe into vegan.
What can you combine tocino mushrooms with?
With pasta, rice or in sandwiches and burgers as I did.
The basic ingredients you will need to make these amazing tocino mushrooms are:
soy sauce, vinegar, pineapple juice
coconut sugar (or other sugar substitute)
garlic, red pepper, turmeric
If you like this recipe you can try some of the following:
In the Philippines they use food coloring to make tocino reddish. I used turmeric and some red pepper.
Instead of pineapple juice, if you do not have it, you can use orange juice.
- 150 gr. oyster mushrooms
- 2-3 tbsp coconut sugar
- 2 garlic cloves
- 1 tbsp soy sauce
- 3 tbsp pineapple juice
- 1/2 tsp turmeric
- black pepper
- a little salt
- Start by throwing all the ingredients in a food bag.
- Add the mushrooms in the bag.
- Put the bag in the fridge for 15 minutes or more.
- Pour a little olive oil in a non-stick pan or wok. Once warm, add the mushrooms together with the marinade. Cook over medium to high heat for about 7-10 minutes.
- Serve your mushrooms as you wish.
