A vegan faux oyster

eclecticveggie | Nov 4, 201112:55 PM     13

This is a very strange question. But I am a near-omnivore who is having an oyster-themed party next week and I want to make something oyster-y for my vegan boyfriend to enjoy.

My thought was to cook up oyster mushrooms and place them, along with a little sauce for slurping, into those large Asian-style ceramic soup spoons.

My quandary is, how to cook the mushrooms? I'd love to replicate the briny-ness of an actual oyster but am not sure how to do that beyond simply adding a crap ton of salt.

So far my thought is to cook them in olive oil with shallots and a splash of veggie broth with plenty of sea salt, but I'd love other chowhoundy opinions on what else might be interesting.
