6.     When cool enough to handle, shred mushrooms with two forks or by hand.

7.     Combine mushroom shreds and sauteed onions to bowl and coat with enough BBQ sauce to your preference.

8.     Add BBQ mushroom and onion mix to pre-sliced roll and top with preferred amount of MPK Foods coleslaw. Enjoy!

Vegetarian & Gluten Free
What you’ll need:

    1 Tbsp. Hermanita Guacamole Mix (or to taste)
    8-12 ounces of hummus

    2 Tbsp. Diced Tomatoes
    2 Tbsp. Diced Cucumbers
    2 Tbsp. Diced Red Onion
    2 Tbsp. Kalamata Olives (whole is fine, but dice into smaller bites if desired)
    Pita Bread (or gluten free equivalent)

    1. Spread an even layer of hummus over your board of choice (a charcuterie board looks great, but go with a plate if     you don't have one).
    2. Sprinkle feta cheese, tomatoes, cucumbers, red onion and olives evenly over the hummus.

    *Chef's Tip: Aim to spread about a 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch of the hummus across the board to get a decent amount when dipping with bread, chips, or crackers.
