Dish Idea: Vegan Crab Cakes
A rare alternative to the traditional
King Oyster, it is a stalky mushroom
known for it’s meaty texture and
delicate flavor. It holds it’s shape
well when cooked and is similar to
sea scallops in texture. Use where
you would use King Oysters.
Dish Idea: Mushroom “Scallops”
A unique beauty, this pink floret
shaped mushroom is impossible to
find in stores due it’s short shelf life. It has been used as a bacon alternative as it takes on a sweet, pork like flavor
when cooked. It also makes an
amazing jerky as it has the firmest
texture of all Oyster mushrooms.
Dish Idea: Mushroom Fajitas
This mushroom is unique in that
after cooking, it still retains its
shape and a bit of a snap, similar to
that of asparagus. With an earthy
and nutty flavor and its interesting
appearance, its one of our
Dish Idea: Stir Frys
Small, delicate and FLAVORFUL!
Again, you wont find this one in
stores because of how brittle it is.

that are great for stirfys and soups.
Dish Idea: Coconut Curry Soup

mushroom has thick, large and
meaty caps and keeps it’s shape well
when cooked in a variety of methods.
This mushroom has become popular
for making a great vegan fried
“chicken” or Steak.
Dish Idea: BBQ Mushroom “Ribs”
This traditionally italian mushroom sometimes smells like chocolate! It has a delicious crunchy stem and soft velvety cap and adds a wonderful nutty and subtly floral flavor to any dish. The stems can be shredded to resemble a pulled pork .
Dish Idea: Mushroom Carnitas
Due to it’s plumaged appearance this popular culinary mushroom is also known as hen-of-the-woods. When cooked it develops a delicous, semi-spicy umami flavor. This mushroom is known for it’s health benefits and has been used in cancer research.
While store bought Enoki is typically white and long due to being grown in the dark and in a high co2 environment, the actual wild mushroom is golden with a black furry stem and not very long at all! We embrace the golden glow by growing in the light and we like to keep them long with larger caps by maintaining moderately high co2.
Fruity and sweeter than traditional Enoki with the same characteristic crunch!
Dish Idea: Ramen
A rather unknown relative of Lion’s Mane and Coral-like in appearance, this mushroom is the most bizarre and delicate gourmet mushroom.
Sweet, lobster or crab-like flavor. Tastes like Lion’s Mane, but stronger! Cook longer to avoid bitter flavor.

Despite being more difficult to cultivate, this mushroom is one of our favorites. When cooked it develops a rich, buttery, meaty flavor. It is known to have anti-inflammatory properties and is sought after for its multitude of medicinal uses.
The mushroom of immortality!
Also known as Lingzhi, this medicinal mushroom has been used for 1000’s of years and is researched for immune health
and anti-cancer properties.
Too tough to eat directly, this mushroom is used to make teas, tinctures and even broths.
We are proud to serve some of the best restaurants in Las Vegas!

Locally sourced has a lot of benefits....

You reduce our reliance on foreign imports which can be unstable in times of need and are often cheaper because of slave wages and a lack of environmental regulations.
Did we mention absolutely unmatched quality? Our mushrooms aren't packed by machines and they arent shipped for days across the country or world.
We dont use any pesticides or synthetic fertilizers, because we need to keep our food and earth clean.
