When we gave up meat, we didn’t want to give up any flavor. And we didn’t want to abandon the whole process of searing steaks in a hot pan. It’s fun! This technique of pressing and searing mushrooms gives you the same satisfaction as a cook and as a food lover. Lion’s manes are the meatiest tasting mushrooms we have ever eaten. Plus, they are a bona fide brain food. Studies show that lion’s manes can improve mental health, including boosting your memory and concentration and reducing the effects of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. That and the satisfying taste make lion’s mane mushrooms a regular in our meals.
