I grew up very Italian. My Mom taught me that if you have salt, pepper, garlic, parsley, and Romano cheese-you have a meal. Add some tomato sauce and you are good to go. You name it-I probably tasted it with the above ingredients.
Lion's Mane is a unique mushroom just because of it's medicinal neurological properties-but when you think about the culinary aspects-you have one hell of a healthy food source too!
Not too many people have even heard of this mushroom. I've been thinking of different ways to prepare this mushroom, and came up with this:
Slice your Lion's Mane into slices approximately 1/3 of an inch. Dunk into your egg batter. Allow excess batter to drip off before breading the slice. Then fry in pan with oil until golden brown.
Egg Batter for approximately 2-2.5 pounds of mushrooms: (I've never really followed a recipe for any dishes I grew up with-so amounts can be varied depending upon your taste).
-nice half of handful of chopped parsley
-about 1-2 teaspoons chopped garlic
-Romano cheese-about an 1/8 of a cup (you can use Parmesan too).
-salt and pepper to taste
-beat eggs and ingredients together.
Flour mixture: Flour. I like to add a handful of breadcrumbs and mix into flour.
Dunk mushrooms into egg, then into flour mixture and fry in vegetable or olive oil until golden brown.
Layer in baking dish (13x9 or so), alternating tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese. Finish with a dusting of Romano or Parmesan. Cover with foil and bake at 350 for about an hour.
