It’s a wrap: The perfect lunch snack.
This wrap here is filled with well-seasoned pulled oyster mushroom, bell peppers, cucumber and lettuce.
Oyster mushrooms are a great alternative for meat, as the texture is very similar to meat. Plus, with mushrooms, you can be bold with spices to make it a hearty meal.
My love: Pulled Oyster Mushroom, Wrap & Spices
I love wraps in any combination! Preferably with lots of fresh vegetables, a little spicy and savory. Pulled oyster mushrooms are on my top list for wrap fillings. I am extremely variable with my choice of seasonings when it comes to oyster mushrooms, so I love them! For this wrap, I opted for a slightly spicy, salty and smoky version. So the oyster mushrooms get a slight gyros flavor.
For the meat-like look, I chose to pick apart the mushrooms. This way they also make a great Pulled Mushroom Burger or in savory sauces. It is important that the mushrooms are well fried until they are nice and brown. This way, the mushrooms not only taste meat-like, but also look like it.

Oyster mushrooms are also rich in vitamin D and B6. Oyster mushrooms are one of the healthiest types of mushrooms around. They contain many antioxidants that strengthen the immune system and help prevent cardiovascular disease. Oyster mushrooms are also rich in vitamin B2, which is important for detoxifying the body and regulating blood pressure.
Red bell pepper is a very healthy and vitamin-rich ingredient used in many dishes. It contains many important nutrients, including vitamin C, beta-carotene, provitamin A and a lot of vitamin B6. This vegetable is also rich in minerals such as calcium, iron, magnesium and zinc. Red bell pepper is a good source of antioxidants and helps the body detoxify. It is also good for digestion and helps fight headaches and migraines.
The oyster mushroom filling is already so well seasoned that there is no need to make much fuss with the vegetables. Therefore, I leave it natural, so I can also benefit best from all the nutrients.
My tip: Roast the pulled oyster mushroom wrap briefly in a pan without oil. I also love chili sauce to it for the extra spiciness.
