Oyster Mushroom “Calamari” (vegan)

MeeT on Main makes killer vegan food. One of the best dishes there is the Oyster Mushroom Calamari.

The grocery store has got me all confuzzled. When I went to develop this recipe and play around with it the other night, I bought what I believed was a sweet potato.
