Lions Mane

Hericium erinaceus

King Blue Oyster

Pleurotus ostreatus -hybrid cross from Mossy Creek Mushrooms

Texture: Meaty, and firm caps/stems but not too chewy

Taste: Bold umami

Can be used in dishes that call for any meat. Is a great option for those looking to use the whole cap/stem, marinating, and throwing directly on the grill. A great “fork and knife” mushroom once charred on the grill or cast iron. Roasting slices of these mushrooms in the oven, and adding them to stove-top black beans is always a crowd pleaser!

High in micronutrients (like vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and fiber), and low in calories, oyster mushrooms are an amazing addition to your weekly diet. Additionally, mushrooms act as prebiotics in your gut as they are a good food source for the healthy gut microbiota that live within our digestive system.
