Cooking recipes with magic mushrooms

In recent years, whether we are talking from the point of view of self-knowledge, therapy, or simply having a good time, the interest in and consumption of hallucinogenic mushrooms has experienced a significant increase, as has home-growing this type of mushroom. However, there is something that every mushroom consumer fears: its terrible flavor and texture, which we are sure would not exactly fall within your top-5 gastronomic preferences. If you've tried them, you know what we're talking about.

For this reason, today we are going to propose several different ways to eat magic mushrooms, from really simple recipes to something more elaborate, so that you can fully enjoy the experience, camouflaging the powerful flavor of the mushrooms and without having the feeling of chewing a half-rotten cork stopper. Let's go to the kitchen!

Preparation of the magic mushrooms

The first thing you will have to do is, logically, get mushrooms. If you are going to grow your own mushrooms, make sure you know the variety and its potency, as some varieties contain significantly more psilocybin than others, something that you should take into account when dosing them.

The ideal thing to cook with this type of mushrooms, which, as we have said, does not stand out either for its flavor or its texture, will be to dry them as much as possible after cultivation and grind them with a grinder or with a coffee grinder, until obtaining a fine powder that will also be much easier to dose.

If you already have experience with hallucinogenic mushrooms, you will know better than anyone the dose that interests you. If you have never tried them, we recommend this post for initiation into the consumption of magic mushrooms. It is always better to start with low doses, which you can increase in subsequent sessions until you find the one that meets your expectations. To give you an idea, a normal dose of a medium potency variety is around 2g of dried mushrooms; a good idea if you're starting out is to try 1g; if you don't get the desired effects, you can always try a higher dose next time. Also, remember that it is possible to have a bad trip and it is good to be prepared for it.

Of course, you can use your magic mushrooms as if they were mushrooms or chanterelles, cutting them into slices or dicing them, but our main objective today is to camouflage their texture and flavor, for which it will be better to dry them well and grind them into a fine powder. To dry them, you just have to leave them on kitchen paper in a cool, dark, dry, and ventilated place for a few days, until you see that they have lost all their moisture.

Today we are going to give you several options to be able to eat your hallucinogenic mushrooms in a different way - and we assure you, much more appetizing - although, as you will see and since it basically involves spreading the powdered mushrooms over food, you can let fly your imagination fly and prepare practically anything you can think of. Clean hands and let's go cooking!

Magic Mushroom Pesto

Pesto is one of the sauces preferred by pasta lovers, who are not few. This potent mix of oil, pine nuts, cheese and basil is ideal for camouflaging the flavor of the mushrooms, and all you have to do is add the mushroom powder along with the rest of the sauce ingredients while you prepare it. As simple as that!

To prepare the sauce, we recommend our article on cannabis pesto, where we explain step by step how to prepare it, as well as some interesting variations for the most restless palates. Of course, unless you want to combine the properties of ingested THC with those of psilocybin, we recommend using normal extra virgin olive oil, without infused cannabinoids.

Without a doubt, pesto is one of the most popular Italian sauces around the world. In this article we tell you how to make cannabis pesto with infused olive oil, so you can enjoy the wonders of this delicious sauce with a touch of magic!

Magic chocolate bonbons

Who can resist a delicious chocolate bonbon? Well, preparing its version rich in psilocybin is easier and faster than you think, we assure you! For this you will need the following:


  • 240g of dark chocolate (or the one you like the most)
  • 130g butter
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 60g of sugar
  • Powdered mushrooms


  1. Mix the 3 egg yolks with the sugar in a bowl with a whisk.
  2. Melt the chocolate together with the butter in a water bath or microwave. Try to resist the temptation to eat it by the spoonful.
  3. Mix both preparations until you get a homogeneous mass. At this point, you can add your powdered mushrooms.
  4. Pour the dough over the chocolate molds (they can be silicone, like ice cube trays, or paper like those for cupcakes).
  5. Leave the mold at room temperature for half an hour and you can cool it in the fridge for about 2-3 hours.
  6. To unmold them, try to do it in one hit on a flat surface.
  7. Enjoy your chocolates!

Magic mushroom tea

As you have already seen, the possibilities are almost endless, although it is true that sometimes our diet is limited by intolerances or allergies to certain foods, complicating things a bit. For this reason, and also because the effect of psilocybin is more intense if it is ingested with little food in the stomach, many users prefer to take their dose or microdose of psilocybin in the form of a delicious and comforting tea. We explain how to prepare it:


  • Water
  • Tea
  • Sugar and/or spices (to taste)
  • Powdered mushrooms


  1. Bring a cup of water to a boil and as soon as it starts to boil, remove it from the heat.
  2. Add your mushroom powder (they can be pieces or slices, maybe it will be more practical in this case) and let it infuse for a minimum of 10 minutes. This step is especially important to extract as much psilocybin as possible.
  3. You can also add the tea or infusion of your choice, as well as spices, sugar, or honey.
  4. Strain the mixture through a fine strainer (especially if you used powder) and you have your magic tea ready.

Hallucinogenic mushroom fricandó

We cannot write an article about recipes with mushrooms and not mention Fricandó, a beef stew with mushrooms famous in many countries such as Spain, France, Switzerland and even Cuba, with many small variations. It is somewhat more laborious than the previous ones, but we also assure is worth the effort!


  • 1 kilogram of beef tenderloin
  • 500g of mushrooms (chanterelles, boletus, etc)
  • Magic mushroom powder
  • 2 onions
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 2 carrots
  • 2 celery stalks
  • 1 green pepper
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 2 ripe tomatoes
  • 1 cup of red wine
  • 1 cup of meat broth
  • 2 bay leaves
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Olive oil
  • Flour to dust the meat


  1. Cut the meat into strips about 3 cm wide.
  2. Flour the meat strips and sauté in a pan with hot oil until golden on both sides. Reserve for later.
  3. In the same saucepan, sauté the chopped onions, carrots, celery, garlic, bell peppers, and tomatoes until just tender. Add the mushrooms of your choice.
  4. Add the meat to the saucepan and mix well with the vegetables and mushrooms.
  5. Add the red wine and let it reduce for a few minutes. Having a drink is optional, to taste as they say.
  6. Add the beef broth, bay leaves, salt, and pepper.
  7. Cook over medium-low heat, covering the pan, for 1 hour and a half or until the meat is tender and tender. You can add the magic mushroom powder at the end of the dish (of course, you can also add pieces of your magic mushrooms along with the rest of the mushrooms, but their flavor and texture have nothing to do with those of a good boletus).
  8. Serve it piping hot and with some'll need it to wash down the plate!

Psilocybin capsules

At this point... maybe you don't feel like cooking, or maybe you're not good at it and you want to devote your time to other things. No problem, we have the solution so you can eat your mushrooms without "enjoying" their flavor, aroma, and texture. Simply dry and grind your favorite mushrooms and use the powder to fill gelcaps. By weighing what you need to fill one of the capsules you will quickly see how many you need to get the dose you want. You can also use a capsule filler to facilitate the encapsulation process.

Have a nice meal!
