Calories -1 kcal


  • slow cooker
  • air fryer (optional - can use oven)


  • 4 cups oyster mushrooms, chopped
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp chili powder (or more if you like spicy!)
  • 8 dates, pitted
  • 1/2 cup tomato paste
  • 1/2 cup coconut aminos
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes
  • 1 tbsp olive oil


  • Combine all the ingredients except the sweet potatoes and olive oil in a slow cooker. Mix well to combine the ingredients and to evenly coat the mushrooms.
  • Cook the mushroom and sauce mixture on high for 2-3 hours, or on low for 5-6 hours.
  • When the mushrooms have had time to cook, prepare your sweet potato sliders. Cut your sweet potatoes into 1/4" rounds, and brush with olive oil on both sides. You can also spray them with cooking spray.
  • Place sweet potato rounds on a tray. Be sure not to overlap them in any way. If cooking the sweet potatoes in the Air Fryer, cook at 370°F for 7-10 minutes, or in the oven at 350°F for 10-15 minutes. If cooking the sweet potatoes in the oven, be sure to flip them halfway through.
  • When the sweet potatoes have cooked, allow them to cool enough so that you can handle them. Then, place them on a tray and gently scoop some BBQ mushrooms on top. Serve warm!
