For the Crust
In a small bowl, combine: flour, Reishi powder, sea salt, sugar, and butter with a fork to form a rough, sandy mixture. Add vodka and water little by little to form a dough. Do not over-knead!
Form batter into small circular forms and wrap each individual roll in plastic wrap. Let this sit in the freezer for at least 30 minutes while you continue cooking.
Mushroom-Lily Bulb Filling
Next, in a small pot, cover the lily bulb with water and boil until everything softens for about 30 mins. You may need to add water in the process to make sure they are moist and eventually turn into a paste-like texture. (Option to use a hand held blender or blender at this step to make a cheese-sauce, lily bulb paste). If using dried lily bulb, this step will take a bit longer because you will need to rehydrate the bulbs.
Season the cooked lily bulb with soy sauce, nutritional yeast and sugar.
In a large frying pan, melt the butter. Once the pan is hot, sauté mixture of oyster and maitake mushrooms. Season with all-natural soy sauce, nutritional yeast, sugar and butter if needed. Sauté this mixture until the excess water is well evaporated.
Once liquid has evaporated, add in finely chopped bok choy and stir until combined. After sautéed thoroughly, set aside and let cool.
Assembly of Galette
Once the individual crust doughs are chilled through, remove from the freezer and roll out dough with a rolling pin. Make sure that the dough is not too sticky and roll out until in a larger circular form.

Place on a greased baking pan and brush the crust with egg wash. Bake the galettes for 40 minutes until the crust is golden brown.
