About the Recipe

This recipe offers a harmonious blend of smoky, tangy, and slightly sweet flavours, with the seasoned slaw adding a delightful crunch. Opting for organic ingredients ensures a natural taste profile and supports sustainable farming practices.


  1. For the Pulled Lion's Mane:

    • Organic lion's mane mushrooms (4 cups, shredded)

    • Organic olive oil (2 tablespoons)

    • Organic onion (1 medium, finely chopped)

    • Organic garlic (3 cloves, minced)

    • Organic BBQ sauce (1 cup, choose a brand with natural ingredients)

    • Organic soy sauce (2 tablespoons)

    • Organic smoked paprika (1 teaspoon)

    • Organic cumin (½ teaspoon)

    • Organic apple cider vinegar (1 tablespoon)

    • Organic brown sugar (1 tablespoon, optional)

    • Salt and black pepper (to taste)

  2. For the Seasoned Slaw:

    • Organic cabbage (2 cups, shredded)

    • Organic carrots (1 cup, shredded)

    • Organic mayonnaise (½ cup, look for an organic or vegan option)

    • Organic apple cider vinegar (2 tablespoons)

    • Organic sugar (1 tablespoon, optional)

    • Salt and pepper (to taste)

  3. Additional:

    • Organic buns (4, for serving)


  1. Prepare the Mushrooms: Clean the lion's mane mushrooms with a brush or damp cloth. Shred them into strands using a fork or your hands, mimicking the texture of pulled meat.

  2. Sauté Onion and Garlic: In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and minced garlic, sautéing until they become translucent.

  3. Cook the Mushrooms: Add the shredded lion's mane mushrooms to the skillet. Cook for about 5-7 minutes, or until they are soft and have released their moisture.

  4. Add Flavorings: Stir in the BBQ sauce, soy sauce, smoked paprika, cumin, apple cider vinegar, and brown sugar (if using). Mix well to ensure the mushrooms are evenly coated.

  5. Simmer: Reduce the heat and let the mixture simmer for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. The sauce should thicken and the mushrooms should take on a pulled texture.

  6. Season: Add salt and black pepper to taste.

  7. Serve: Spoon the pulled lion's mane onto buns, and serve them hot. They can be paired with coleslaw, pickles, or your favorite side dish.
