  • 1 sweet potato
  • 1/4 lb lions mane mushroom
  • 1 spoonful your favorite BBQ sauce
  • 1/4 cup caramelized onions
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1/2 Meyer lemon
  • 1 handful cilantro
  • 1 handful parsley
  • 1 stalk green onion


  • Heat oven to 400ºF. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
    Poke holes in sweet potato with a fork. Rub with olive oil. Bake for 40-45 minutes.
  • With 15 minutes left on potato, heat cast iron skillet over medium heat.
    Shred lions mane mushroom by hand and add to hot skillet. Sauté dry for a few minutes until mushroom starts to brown.
    Season as you like. I used black garlic salt, black pepper, and basil.
    Remove mushroom into a bowl and coat with BBQ sauce.
  • With cast iron still hot, reheat caramelized onions until warmed.
  • To make avocado crema, scoop out avocado into a bowl. Add lemon juice, chopped cilantro, salt, and pepper. Cumin and coriander optional.
  • Cut parsley and green onion for toppings.
  • Once potato is done and cool enough, make a slit and squeeze to split open.
    Add caramelized onion, BBQ mushroom, avocado crema, and top with accoutrements. Make sure that your potato is overflowing! Enjoy it!!
