Mushrooms are a versatile and delicious addition to many recipes. There are several mushrooms to choose from that will offer magical flavors to any dish that will transcend your life. If you’re looking to learn more about mushroom varieties and different recipes you can try out with them, look no further!

Lions Mane Mushrooms

Lions Mane is one of our favorites simply because it packs so much flavor, and has a meaty and umami flavor that can be enjoyed in so many vegan dishes to replace meat. If you’re looking for vegan inspiration, try using Lions Mane to make cumin lemon kebabs. Grill the manes on a stick like you would a kebab and enjoy the meaty flavor of mushrooms.

Oyster Mushrooms

Oyster mushrooms are an excellent source of fiber and vitamin C. They offer a complex, earthy, and meaty flavor that will enhance many dishes such as stir fry, soups, and salads. We recommend grilling them and adding them to your baked mac and cheese for a decadent flavor.


Maitake, also known as “hen of the woods,” is often used in many Japanese and Chinese dishes, and offer a distinct woodsy flavor that can be used to enhance many recipes. Throw them into stir fry or cook them alone. We recommend cooking them as steaks and eating them with a side of mashed potatoes and green beans!
