Lion’s Mane Mushroom Recipe

Here’s a simple lion’s mane mushroom recipe that’s delicious on pasta or crackers. The butter and cream are a little heavy, but you can substitute olive oil and milk for a lighter mushroom recipe.

This cooks down to gravy, although you can omit all the liquids if you like and still have a delicious topping for pasta, tofu, or other dish.


  • 1/2 lb lion’s      mane mushrooms, cleaned and thinly sliced
  • 3 tablespoons      butter
  • 2 cups light      cream
  • 1/2 yellow onion,      chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic,      chopped
  • 3 tablespoons      flour

Melt one tablespoon of butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms and cook until they seem to have given off most of their liquid.

Throw in the onions and garlic and cook until the onions have softened and the mushrooms are brown.

Add the flour and the remainder of the butter. Cook several more minutes, stirring frequently to mix the melting butter with everything else.

Slowly pour in the cream. Turn down the heat and allow the mixture to simmer until it has reached your desired consistency.

Serve on top of pasta, rice, or crackers. Delicious!
