Oyster Mushroom Curry Salad Sandwich

15 min


We love to make and enjoy curries, and for this recipe, we created a spreadable curry that you can enjoy in a sandwich! The recipe was inspired by a Dutch spread called "kip kerrie". The traditional spread uses chicken, so instead, we've called on the naturally meaty texture of mushrooms. The lightly caramelized mushrooms, together with the tropical taste of pineapple, and the impressive flavours from curry powder makes this a unique and wonderfully flavourful sandwich to enjoy for lunch or dinner.

Mushroom curry salad

  • 1 tsp (5 mL)
    olive oil
  • 1
    clove garlic, minced
  • ½
    medium shallot, finely chopped
  • 6 oz (170 g)
    oyster mushrooms
  • ⅛ tsp
  • ½ tsp
    ground cumin
  • ½ tsp
    ground coriander
  • ¼ tsp
    ground ginger
  • ⅛ tsp
    ground black pepper
  • ½ cup (126 g)
    canned pineapple chunks, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp (30 mL)
  • 2 Tbsp (30 mL)
    unsweetened soy yogurt
  • 1 tsp (2 g)
    curry powder
  • 1 tsp (5 mL)
    dijon mustard


  • 4
    slices whole wheat bread, toasted
  • 2
    romaine lettuce leaves
  • 1
    medium tomato, sliced
  • 1
    stalk green onion, thinly sliced


  1. Heat a medium pan over medium-high heat. Add the oil, garlic, and shallot. Cook for 2 - 3 minutes. Using your hands, peel the mushrooms into small strips, and add them to the pan along with the salt. Cook, while stirring occasionally for 3 minutes.
  2. Next, add the cumin, coriander, ginger, and pepper, and cook for another 3 minutes. By now, the liquid from the mushrooms should have evaporated. Transfer the mixture to a bowl.
  3. To the same bowl, add the pineapple, mayo, yogurt, curry powder, and mustard. Stir to combine.
  4. To assemble the sandwich, begin with a slice of your favourite bread. Layer it with lettuce, tomato slices, the mushroom curry mixture, and top it with some green onions. Enjoy!


  • The mushroom salad filling can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.

I found it quite wet and runny, maybe because of my pineapple.

Dorka - Jan. 4, 2024, 10:45 p.m.

It is intresting but not so delicious on my opinion

PUL Team - Jan. 4, 2024, 11:29 p.m.

We're sad to hear this, Dorka! Ee'd love to hear what you didn't like (such as the taste or texture?) It's super appreciated to help us improve 🙌

I was wondering how does 1 sandwich have 334 kcal….. 2 slices of bread will have 3/4 of this cal intake …. There is no way this sandwich has only 334 kcal…

PUL Team - Nov. 22, 2023, 11:36 p.m.

Hey there, Hania, We determine the nutritional content of our recipes by using the USDA food database and cross-referencing these values with our own products. For instance, two slices of whole wheat bread contribute approximately 180 calories. Other key calorie-rich ingredients in this recipe include oyster mushrooms, canned pineapple, olive oil, vegan mayonnaise, and soy yogurt, collectively providing around 130 calories per sandwich. The rest of the vegetables and spices account for the remaining calories. It's worth noting that vegetables and spices tend to be less calorie-dense compared to other ingredients that contain more fat and sugar 😊 Also keep in mind that there may be variations between brands, but we hope this explanation helps for now. If you need specific nutrition information due to a medical condition, please also consult with a dietitian or physician 🤗

Works also with other mushrooms. Very good for hot weather.

Tia - Aug. 26, 2023, 8:35 a.m.

I loved this receipt! The receipt was very easy and quickish. My 2-year-old helped peel the mushrooms, which she loved, but added a bit more time:) The oyster mushrooms in my area are pricey, but for a fun change in our dinner routine, we will definitely make again.
Thank you for my new favorite not-chicken sandwich!

PUL Team - Aug. 27, 2023, 11:03 p.m.

Aw so nice for your little one to get involved, Tia! We're so happy that the sandwich was enjoyed 😊

Kaylie Pulver - June 27, 2023, 2:39 a.m.

So so good and so so easy!! Definitely doing this one again!

s - June 5, 2023, 7:17 p.m.

i will admit i was a little skeptical of the combos but this was lovely! i used apple instead of pineapple and added some smoked paprika - thank you so much for this quick and simple recipe! also, cooking along with you while using the app has been such a joy :)

PUL Team - June 5, 2023, 7:53 p.m.

Thanks for sharing your experience with it, S! It means so much to hear the positive feedback with the app too 💛

HumanSpirit - Feb. 10, 2023, 6:10 p.m.

Hi you 2

This recipe led me to like oyster mushroom and buy it more often, thank you very much. My husband and I love to make this recipe, not often in a sandwich but as a side dish.
I love your videos BTW.
Thoughts from France <3

PUL Team - Feb. 11, 2023, 2:34 a.m.

Hey HS, so happy to hear - thank you! Hugs to France 🤗

Martunia - Jan. 17, 2023, 4:56 p.m.

Just made it and it came out super yummy and incredibly filling! I love how the oyster mushrooms mimic the chicken structure.

Radana - Oct. 16, 2022, 7:44 p.m.

Delicious, easy and everyone loves it. All I need from a dinner meal. :) Thank you!

PUL Team - Oct. 17, 2022, 12:12 a.m.

Awe it means so much, Radana 🤗

Carla - June 6, 2022, 9:21 p.m.

I'm new to meatless meals (for every meal), I'll definitely be adding this to the rotation. I didn't have the vegan mayo but it was delish imo.

PUL Team - June 6, 2022, 11:40 p.m.

So happy to hear, Carla! Wishing you all the best on your plant-based journey 🌱

Clari - Jan. 31, 2022, 12:25 p.m.

Seriously, I'm obsessed with this sandwich, I could make this for dinner every day and never get tired of it. It's just so so easy to make and so delicious. Really... Obsessed with this dish, thank you for discovering it to me!!

PUL Team - Jan. 31, 2022, 7:58 p.m.

Woohoo! Thank YOU, Clari, for the glowing review ✨

Marit - Jan. 17, 2022, 12:47 p.m.

Hey, super nice recipe. Really easy to make and if you take some time for a lunch break, really satisfying!! Love the texture of the mushrooms in this recipe :) thanks a lot :)

PUL Team - Jan. 18, 2022, 12:22 a.m.

Hey there, Marit, it means so much to hear! So glad it was enjoyed 🌻

Sarah C - Jan. 14, 2022, 7:15 a.m.

Fantastic recipe! I used an apple instead of the pineapple, just as someone else suggested. It made for a quick and satisfy sando! I would definitely make it again. It is a great way to use the oyster mushrooms!

PUL Team - Jan. 14, 2022, 5:22 p.m.

Mmm sounds delicious, Sarah, thanks for taking the time to share 😃

Angélica - Sept. 4, 2021, 9:57 a.m.

The filling is delicious! Thank you for this recipe :)

Steph - Aug. 25, 2021, 12:56 a.m.

This is a delicious and quick meal that I have made many times. It’s my house mate’s favourite dish!

Shannon H - July 24, 2021, 6:21 p.m.

Delicious! We rarely have pineapple so we sub with cubed apples and mmmm- still delish! This simple and quick recipe is full of robust flavor and plant based goodness- something we could all use more of.

PUL Team - July 25, 2021, 11:48 p.m.

Wonderful substitution, Shannon! Thanks so much for sharing ✨

Céline - July 10, 2021, 10:19 p.m.

This is currently my favorite recipe. For two people I use the amount of four sandwiches. I really feel the meaty texture through the meaty oyster mushrooms and the juicy pineapple. I am also very happy about the health benefits of oyster mushrooms. I have read somewhere that oyster mushrooms deliver Vitamin D.

PUL Team - July 16, 2021, 4:18 a.m.

We're so happy you're enjoying this one, Céline! There's definitely lots of interesting research coming out on the topic 🤓

Bailey - July 10, 2021, 2:09 a.m.

This is the new favourite lunch recipe at our house! It's so good and I love how easy it is to make!

Evelina V - July 9, 2021, 1:59 p.m.

I was a bit sceptical in the beginning because of the pineapple, but I'm so glad that we tried it a while ago. It's amazing! Also, I remembered about this a couple of days ago, we shopped the ingredients and we plan on enjoying it for dinner today. Thank you for all the delicious food that you are sharing here and on YT. You are amazing <3
PS. Congrats again for this new website, I love the design and its new features - I recommend it to every person that I talk to when it comes to food and recipes.

PUL Team - July 14, 2021, 3:58 p.m.

We're so glad you gave the recipe a try and enjoyed it, Evelina! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the lovely feedback ♥️

Liz - July 9, 2021, 1:17 a.m.

I absolutely loved the taste and texture of this sandwich! The pineapple really makes the recipe memorable. It was super easy to make and I was able to scale it up here so we could make lots of them.

PUL Team - July 12, 2021, 2:56 a.m.

We're so glad you enjoyed the sandwich and scale-up feature, Liz!

Cris S - June 5, 2021, 3:49 p.m.

This is great! I wonder how it would taste with tofu to add in the protein...

PUL Team - June 5, 2021, 9:26 p.m.

Very interesting idea, Cris! The oyster mushrooms help add some protein but perhaps adding some tofu, lentils or mashed chickpeas may be fun to experiment with. Let us know how it goes if you give it a try 😃

Louise Magnusson🇸🇪 - May 10, 2021, 11:11 a.m.

Haha 😆
What a filling and indulgent sandwich! It deserves to be THE fast food no 1. I think however that the choice of bread is very important for this recipe.
This brought back memories to some Swedish dishes that I ate when I was young. Tropicana: a pizza topped with curry spice mix, grilled chicken, pineapple or banana, and mushrooms. Baked potato with chicken curry salad. Sweden and Netherlands seem to share good taste in food (at least being innovative and unconventional)😂
Thanks for this nostalgic trip!

PUL Team - May 11, 2021, 5:12 a.m.

We absolutely adore the connection you had with the recipe, Louise! We enjoy this one with whole wheat toast most often 🙂

Paulina - April 28, 2021, 5:39 p.m.

It's sooo good! Thank you Sadia!

Helenbella - April 19, 2021, 4:38 p.m.

Made it for my lunch and couldn't find tinned pineapples or oyster mushrooms so ended up using portobello mushrooms and tinned peach! Not sure I'd always make the peach swap, but the mushrooms were a great switch!

PUL Team - April 20, 2021, 5:27 a.m.

Thanks for the lovely tip, Helenbella! We haven't tested these out, but perhaps mango or green apples with a dash lemon or lime juice for acidity may be another substitute for the pineapple if you're feeling adventurous to experiment 🙂

Dorothy - April 7, 2021, 11:33 a.m.

I love that one!!! It's absolutely delicious! I've already made it with oysters and shimeji mushrooms. It's amazing and every time after eating it I feel extremely energized!

Thank you 💓💓

Ps the new website is perfect!

PUL Team - April 8, 2021, 6:34 a.m.

We appreciate this so much, Dorothy! So glad you enjoyed the sandwich :D
