What Are Oyster Mushrooms Used For?

Cooking! And Eating!

 

There are a number of varieties of oyster mushrooms available and they are all have unique flavors and textures. Oyster mushrooms are very meaty and can be used as a substitute for meat in any of your favourite recipes. Just a cup of oyster mushrooms contains 3g of protein and they are delicious on the barbecue.

 

One interesting thing about mushrooms is that they are almost impossible to overcook. Try leaving them to cook a little longer and you will get a really nice, crispy texture.

What is Lion's Mane Used For?

Lion’s mane mushrooms are a delicious culinary mushroom with potential benefits to your nervous system and cognitive function. While it’s nice to think that lion’s mane is beneficial for your brain, one thing is for sure… they are delicious.

The ways in which Lion’s mane are being cooked are also quite remarkable. From crab cakes, to pulled pork – this mushroom can do almost anything because of it’s unique texture. Taste wise, it’s not bad either. Not a particularly overpowering mushroom and it has the ability to absorb flavours better than chicken in my opinion..

A sure way to impress even the most affluent mushroom fanatic!
