This weekend I spend time with my wonderful friends. We foraged herbs and dehydrated peaches… and made Lion’s Man mushroom “crab cakes”. This was my first time ever seeing Lion’s Mane, let alone cooking with it! But I am always up for a challenge.
The first thing to do is wash about a 1/2 lb of Lion’s Mane and shred it. The texture is almost exactly like crab meat! Once shredded you toss with 2 cloves of garlic and 2 table spoons of extra virgin olive oil, then place it on a cookie sheet and bake at 350* for 30-40 mins.
While the mushrooms are baking you mix the ingredients for the cakes. 3/4 cup of bread crumbs, 2 eggs, 2 tbs of greek yogurt, 3tbs of parsley, 2 tsp of lemon, and 2 tsp of paprika. Mix ingredients with baked mushrooms and cook in coconut oil until both sides are light brown.
These mushroom cakes are delicious and have such a similar taste to crab cakes but without the seafood!
