I've heard several times that Lion's Mane can be cooked to taste like lobster. Since lobster tends to run on the expensive side, if true, this is good news for lobster lovers all over. Vegans might also enjoy this, just switch out the butter for a vegan substitute.
If you're wanting to try for a lobster flavor, slice the Lion's Mane and saute it in butter, being careful not to overcook it. Feel free to add in some garlic or other seasonings for a bit more flavor. A lot of the butter will be absorbed, so you may need to add more during cooking. If you feel too much was absorbed, lightly press with a paper towel before eating to get out excess butter.
Lion's Mane has several health benefits that it is known for. While I would never recommend skipping medical care, adding beneficial foods into your diet can't hurt, especially when they are so deliciously nutritious on their own.
Lion's Mane itself has very few calories, and no fat. Most of the calories would come from the butter used to cook it in.
If lobster is a favorite dish, but you have to have it sparingly because of the cost, you can order a Lion's Mane mini farm to grow on your counter-top and have plenty available in just a few weeks. You can prepare this tasty dish for a friendly get together.
