Adobo-style Lion's Mane & Turnip Grounds

It's only the beginning of the year, but I want to continue supporting anyone who wishes to eat more plants. I want to introduce different methods to create vegan meat substitutes. I don't know how I did not create this sooner. Lion's mane mushroom & Turnips! Well, I do go by Turnip, so I should make more turnip recipes. Lol The texture of this recipe isn't as meaty as some of my other meat substitutes, but the flavor and ingredients are really delicious.


5oz of Lion's Mane Mushroom (Lion's Mane Mushroom can be substituted with portobello, shiitake, or white mushroom.)

1 cup chopped turnips

1 cup chopped green bell pepper

1 cup chopped onions

1 cup cooked lentils

3 -4 bulbs of smoked or roasted garlic

1 tsp of chili powder

2 tbsp avocado oil 

1 tbsp adobo bouillon (can be replaced with vegetable bouillon )

Salt and pepper to taste




  1. Add chopped turnip, lion's mane, bell pepper, cooked lentils, adobo bouillion, smoked garlic, 1 Tbsp of avocado oil, salt, and pepper to the food processor and blend.
  2. Saute diced onions in avocado oil for 3 -5 minutes 
  3. Add the lion's mane and turnip crumbles to the pan, and cook for 15 -17 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Cook all the water out. Stir and mix to prevent sticking to the pan's bottom.
  4. Season the "ground meat" with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Serve and Enjoy!


This recipe makes about 3 -4 servings. You can use this Adobo-style Lion's Mane & Turnip Grounds as a filling for tacos and burritos or a topping for nachos, pizza, or bowls.
