Hericium erinaceus (also called Lion's Mane Mushroom, Monkey Head Mushroom (猴頭菇), Hedgehog Mushroom, Bearded Hedgehog Mushroom, Pom Pom Mushroom, or Bearded Tooth Fungus) is an edible and medicinal mushroom. This mushroom has a meaty texture and it makes a great meat substitute.
I don't know how to prepare the dried mushrooms so I bought the already processed ones from the frozen food section in the Asian grocery store.
