    Discover the magic of Lion's Mane: 3 delicious recipes for a healthy mind

    Lion's Mane (Hericium erinaceus), is not only a fascinating mushroom to see, but also a mushroom with impressive health benefits on the body and mind.

    In fact, this mushroom is known for its ability to improve cognitive functions, support memory and reduce stress. You may know the wig mushroom from the Stamets Stack microdosing method, where its combination with psilocybin truffles and nicaine makes for a particularly potent combination.

    But did you know that (fresh) Lion's Mane is also excellent for use in dishes? In this article we introduce you to the special world of Lion's Mane through three delicious and easy to prepare recipes.

    Recipe 1: Lion's Mane stir fry with garlic and soy sauce


    • 200 grams of fresh Lion's Mane mushrooms (available at the market or organic supermarket)
    • 2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
    • 2 tablespoons of soy sauce (or tamari, for a gluten-free option)
    • 1 tablespoon of sesame oil
    • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, finely chopped
    • A handful of fresh green vegetables (e.g. broccoli or spinach)
    • Salt and pepper to taste
    • Optional: red pepper flakes for a spicy twist


    Slice the Lion's Mane mushrooms.

    Heat the sesame oil in a pan over medium-high heat and add the garlic and ginger. Fry them until fragrant.

    Add the Lion's Mane mushrooms and stir-fry for 4-5 minutes until golden brown.

    Add the green vegetables and stir-fry for another 2-3 minutes until crisp.
