I strongly believe that everyone needs a good mock Pulled Pork recipe in their life and this is by far the easiest and most delicious. Normally I make this dish with jackfruit, but jackfruit is not for everyone. So, I decided to make another version. In this version, the “Meaty” shreds are a combination of baby king oyster mushrooms and carrots. Mushrooms pack in delicious flavors, and the carrots are added to create a similar texture while also giving the dish extra nutrients!

Switch this dish up with any kind of BBQ sauce you like such as Smoky or Sweet.

How to Make Vegan Mushroom Pulled “Pork”

This recipe is made in 35-minutes and contains only a few simple steps. First, simply use a fork to shred mushrooms and a grater to finely shred the carrots. In a large bowl mix together with a few seasonings, transfer into a baking dish and drizzle with a small amount of oil. Next, bake in the oven at 375 degrees for 25 minutes, then lather with you favorite Naturally Sweetened BBQ Sauce. Use this filling in a sandwich or make some Pulled “Pork” Tacos!

In this recipe I will also outline how to make a Vegan Coleslaw. Using a Creamy Tahini base. Similarly you can use Vegan Mayo, depending on your preference.
