Grow Your Own Gourmet: Lion's Mane Garlic Butter Recipe

At Golden Mushroom Co., we're not just about growing mushrooms. We’re about savoring their unique flavors in the most delightful ways. If you’ve cultivated some fresh Lion’s Mane mushrooms using our DIY Mushroom Kit, here’s a gourmet recipe that'll elevate your culinary game.

Lion's Mane Garlic Butter

Rich, garlicky, and infused with the delicate taste of Lion’s Mane, this butter is perfect for spreading on toasted bread, dolloping on steaks, or adding an extra flavor dimension to your favorite dishes.


  • 100g fresh Lion's Mane mushrooms
  • 200g unsalted butter, softened
  • 5 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, finely chopped (optional)
  • Salt, to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste


  1. Prepare the Lion's Mane: Clean the Lion’s Mane mushrooms by gently brushing off any substrate or debris. Using your fingers, tear them into small, bite-sized pieces.

  2. Sauté the Mushrooms: In a skillet over medium heat, melt 2 tablespoons of the butter. Add the Lion’s Mane pieces and cook until they’re golden brown and slightly crispy on the edges, about 5-7 minutes. Remove from heat and allow them to cool.

  3. Mix the Butter: In a mixing bowl, combine the softened butter, minced garlic, and parsley (if using). Stir until well-combined.

  4. Add the Lion’s Mane: Once the sautéed mushrooms have cooled, finely chop them and add them to the butter mixture. Mix well to ensure the mushrooms are evenly distributed.

  5. Season: Add salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste, and give it one final stir.

  6. Store or Serve: Transfer your Lion's Mane garlic butter into a jar or roll it in parchment paper to form a butter log. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving to allow the flavors to meld. This butter can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a week or frozen for longer storage.

For those of you looking to add a gourmet touch to your meals, Lion’s Mane is a gem in the mushroom kingdom. Its delicate flavors paired with the richness of butter and the sharpness of garlic create an unforgettable taste sensation.

Enjoy your homegrown Lion's Mane in this savory spread, and remember: the best mushrooms are the ones you grow yourself!
