Sautéed Matsutake

Sautéed Matsutake

Sautéed slices of Matsutake. So smooth and fragrant, eating them is like having the bursting vitality of spring absorbed into your stomach.

Let’s be honest, here – a lot of people don’t like eating mushrooms. I very clearly remember picking the mushrooms off of my pizza as a child with a look of disgust painted across my face. To try and reinvent an often-scorned food, Mihoyo’s added simple sauteed mushrooms into the food database for Genshin Impact using a recipe that’s both simple… and sufficient.

In this recipe guide, we’ll quickly gloss over the process for making sauteed matsutake (mushrooms) at home. A staple for “farming” Elites in real life! (pesky neighbors, rambunctious kids, etc.)
