Lion’s mane mushrooms, also known as hou tou gu or yamabushitake, are large, white, shaggy mushrooms that resemble a lion’s mane as they grow. They have both culinary and medical uses in Asian countries like China, India, Japan and Korea. Lion’s mane mushrooms can be enjoyed raw, cooked, dried or steeped as a tea. Many describe their flavour as “seafood-like,” often comparing it to crab or lobster. Their extracts are often used in smoothies and teas.
