  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C.
  2. Pull the oyster mushrooms apart into fine strips and add to a baking tray with the smoked paprika, garam masala and oil. Season with a little salt and pepper. Mix together with your hands and bake for 15 mins.
  3. Meanwhile, mix all the slaw ingredients in a large bowl with a pinch of salt. In separate bowls, mix the chimichurri sauce ingredients together and the chipotle mayo ingredients together. Set all three bowls aside until ready to serve.
  4. Mix the chipotle paste, soy sauce and agave together in a small bowl. Remove the mushrooms from the oven, pour over the spicy sauce, mix well, then return to the oven for another 8 mins.
  5. When the mushrooms are cooked, split into four mounds on the baking tray and add a sprinkle of vegan cheese on top of each. Return to the oven for 2 mins to melt the cheese.
  6. Assemble the burgers by toasting the buns, adding some chipotle mayo to the bottom, a handful of slaw and the chipotle mushrooms. Finish with the chimichurri sauce and gherkins on top, add a little more chipotle mayo to the top bun and serve immediately.
