These mushrooms make for a great light snack, and are healthy, low in calories, but very tasty. The oyster mushrooms are shredded then baked in the oven until they have dried out, before being mixed with a sweet sauce, baked one final time, then eaten – usually eaten very quickly too! 🙂
They are quite easy to make, and the most time consuming part is shredding the mushrooms, but after that its plain sailing! They can be eaten on their own as a light snack or with some sticky rice to bulk them out.

Special Cooking Equipment Used
Step 1: Start by slicing 250g of oyster mushrooms into thin strips or shreds, and then spread them out across a baking tray. Put them in the oven to bake for about 30 to 40 minutes at 200 degrees. Check them every 10 minutes just to make sure they don’t burn. You want them to be dried out, but not burnt.
Step 2: Now we need to make the sweet sauce. Add 1 tbsp of palm sugar to a mixing bowl, and if you are using hard palm sugar, heat it for about 10 seconds in the microwave just to soften it up.
Step 3: Now add 1 tbsp of water to the mixing bowl, and mix with the palm sugar. Then add 1 teaspoon of soy sauce, and continue mixing with the palm sugar. Finally add in 1 tbsp of sesame seeds and stir together.
Step 4: Once the shredded mushrooms have dried out in the oven, add them to the mixing bowl with the sauce, and stir together thoroughly.
Step 5: Then spread the mushrooms out on a baking tray, and place them back in the oven to bake for a final 5 to 10 minutes at 200 degrees. Then they are ready to eat!
