Shiitake Mushroom Porridge with Lion’s Mane Extract

Shiitake Mushroom Porridge with Lion’s Mane Extract

The lion’s mane mushroom has drawn the attention of researchers for its notable nerve-regenerative properties and are increasingly studied for their neuro protective effects. When cooked is has a wonderfully chewy texture and taste slightly reminiscent of seafood (shrimp/lobster flavour when cooked in butter) and cooked aubergine. As a dry powder it can be slightly bitter with suggestions of artichoke.
