Lion’s Mane Tacos with Citrus Slaw

Lion’s mane mushrooms are not only fun to prepare and eat, but they also have antioxidant properties! Research suggests that they may offer a range of health benefits:

Next time you’re at the farmer’s market, grab some lion’s mane from Desert Pearl Mushrooms and make these delicious tacos! This is also a fun recipe for kids to participate in – they can shred the mushrooms with their hands!

Citrus Marinade (used both as a marinade and in THE slaw)

  • Zest from 1 orange
  • 2 large oranges, juiced
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ lime, juiced
  • ½ tsp chili powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Lion’s Mane Taco “Meat”

  • 2 large pieces of lion’s mane mushroom, shredded
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp coriander powder
  • ½ tsp dried oregano
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • ½ of the above Citrus Marinade
  • Small corn tortillas

Citrus Slaw

  • 2 cups of greens, thinly sliced (we used kale, brussels sprouts, and broccoli leaves)
  • 1 carrot, shredded
  • ¼ cup cilantro, chopped
  • Remaining Citrus Marinade
  • 1-2 tbsp mayo (optional)
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Shred lion’s mane mushrooms into small pieces (with your hands) and place in a bowl, add all taco “meat” ingredients to the bowl and toss to coat, let sit for 5 minutes. Spread lion’s mane on a parchment lined baking sheet and place in the oven for 20 minutes, stirring halfway through. Bake until golden brown and a bit crispy on the edges.

While the lion’s mane is baking, prepare the citrus slaw by placing all ingredients in a bowl and tossing until well combined, set aside.

Heat tortillas and make tacos! Feel free to add chopped tomato, salsa or hot sauce! Enjoy!
