This recipe is great for a light summer evening dinner. Pair two Bao Buns with a lovely salad and presto ! You have a lovely light dinner.
I will make a confession. I did not make the Bao Buns from scratch. Instead, I visited the local Chinese Supermarket and bought them frozen. Then steamed them for ten minutes. While they were steaming, I prepared the mushroom filling which took me about fifteen minutes ! Super quick and easy to prepare. :))

Vegan Bao Bun Filling
Note : Errrmmmm .. another confession here with the filling. I prepared the filling in a pan. I sautéed two onions, one white and one red. Then I added the spices, a little Worcestershire sauce, a teaspoon of barbecue sauce, some chilli flakes and at the end a teaspoon of hoisin and siracha. I let them cook for about 10 - 15 minutes.
Grated carrot was my sprinkle of choice.

Don’t over-churn or texture will suffer.
Is best served within a few hours, it will last days, but will get hard and have to be thawed for at least a half hour, to regain the creaminess.

Recipe Compliments Dr. Mark Hyman:
The shrimp are tossed in shredded coconut and baked to crispy perfection, then layered with a tangy Cilantro Lime “Crema” along with fresh cabbage and a dollop of creamy guac.
Each one of the tacos packs in some essential protein from the shrimp, healthy fats from coconut and avocado, and fiber and folate from the cabbage.
Cilantro is an amazing herb for detoxification, which is especially helpful paired with digestion-stimulating lime juice. Herbs and spices added into a meal to receive multiple health and longevity boosts.
