I have heard about these Lion's Mane 'Crab' Cakes when John first started growing mushrooms. To be honest, i didn't believe anything that i heard...I was wrong on all counts!! These were great - they did taste like crab and if I didn't know they didn't have meat, I wouldn't have missed it.
I also thought they would be difficult and would take a long time to prepare. They were so simple and enjoyable.
Give them a try - you won't be dissappointed.
