Crafting a Chipotle Lion's Mane Hot Dog with Turnip Vegan

Creating a Chipotle Lion's Mane Hot Dog

For the past few years, our friend Turnip Vegan has been inspiring us with his passion for creating exciting, healthy, and beautifully crafted vegan food. For our most recent collaboration, he made this Chipotle Lion's Mane Hot Dog from scratch with lion's mane mushrooms that he grew in his own BoomRoom.
