Minnesota Grown Lions Mane Mushrooms also known as "the smart mushroom" has gotten a lot of attention for improving cognitive function. We love to cook with this versatile culinary mushroom. Meaty yet tender and juicy, this mushroom has a texture that imitates that of crab meat when pulled apart. The flavor of lions mane has a slight shell fish flavor but is very mild.
Goes amazingly well in sauces and soups, This mushroom will act like a sponge absorbing all the flavor and liquids it comes in contact. This unique mushroom can als be used to make imitation crab cakes with a unique depth of flavor.
Tips: when sauteing in a pan make sure to squeeze the mushroom as hard as possible to collapse the airy pockets. This will prevent too much butter/oil from being absorbed before it is cooked. The squeezing also removes excess moisture that can make it difficult to cook.
