Mushrooms seem to be a love ’em or hate ’em type of food.  We believe that those who find themselves hating mushrooms just haven’t had them prepared properly. Luckily, there are ways to help you grow to love mushrooms and Advanced MycoTech™ is dedicated to guiding you every step of the way.

So, maybe you’ve already heard about all the health benefits that mushrooms provide and probably wish you liked them enough to eat them more regularly other than the occasional pizza or salad topping.

However, a good thing to remember is the fact that mushrooms should always be cooked. According to Andrew Weil, MD, “Mushrooms have very tough cell walls and are essentially indigestible if you don’t cook them. Thoroughly heating them releases the nutrients they contain, including protein, B vitamins, and minerals, as well as a wide range of novel compounds not found in other foods.”

Lion’s mane mushrooms, in particular, are packed with amazing health benefits and incredible medicinal qualities, which make for a great addition to any nutrition plan. Lion’s mane health benefits include, but are not limited to:

  • Inducing nerve growth factor (NGF)
  • Preventing or slowing the onset of dementia and Alzheimer’s
  • Reducing the risk of heart disease

In addition, adding lion’s mane mushrooms into your diet would make Hippocrates proud!

“Let food be thy medicine, and medicine be thy food.”


To get you started, we’re going to introduce you to three unbelievably delicious lion’s mane mushroom recipes that’ll leave you wanting more. Whether you’re new to lion’s mane or a veteran, these recipes will be useful and tasty!

  • 2 tablespoon Greek yogurt (organic mayonnaise can be used as a substitute)

This is an interesting take on “liver and onions.”  We gotta say, roasted lion’s mane mushrooms sound much more appetizing than liver!


  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 4 cups vertically sliced shallots (about 6 large)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
  • 1/3 cup dry sherry
  • 1 tablespoon sherry vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 12 silver dollar-sized lion’s mane mushrooms (about 12 ounces)
  • 1 tablespoon butter, cut into 12 pieces
  • 1 tablespoon sliced fresh chives

We understand that lion’s mane mushrooms are hard to come by in most places. If lion’s mane mushrooms are unavailable to you but you are determined to add more mushrooms into your diet, check out our stuffed mushrooms recipes that are vegan and keto-friendly. These recipes are mouth-wateringly satisfying and call for commonly found mushrooms like white button mushrooms and crimini mushrooms, sometimes referred to as baby portobellos. These can be found in most supermarkets.

Bon appétit!
