How to Make Mock Matsutake Gohan (Pine Mushroom Rice) - Video Recipe

Matsutake Gohan (pine mushroom rice) is a very simple rice dish to enjoy the flavor of Matsutake mushrooms!

I saw on TV that you can create the Matsutake flavor by cooking Eryngii (royal trumpet) mushrooms and unshelled Edamame together since Eryngii mushrooms have the same texture as Matsutake and Edamame pods have the same flavor component as Matsutake. Very scientific logic. haha

It went viral in Japan, so I tried it out. Yes, it becomes a very dainty Matsutake rice dish. Try out and see how you like it ;)

Mock Matsutake Gohan (Pine Mushroom Rice)

Difficulty: Super Easy
Time: 1hr
Number of servings: 4

3 cups uncooked Japanese rice (short-grain rice)
100g (3.5oz.) Eryngii (royal trumpet) mushrooms
100g (3.5oz.) unshelled Edamame *fresh ones
Dashi Broth
* 600ml water
* 10cm/4inch-square Konbu (kelp)
* 1 tbsp. Sake
* 1.5 tbsp. soy sauce
* a pinch of salt

1. Wash rice and leave for about 30 minutes. If you are using pre-washed rice (musenmai) you don't have to wash it.
2. Clean Konbu with moistened towel. Soak in 600ml water for 30 minutes.
3. Slice Eryngii mushrooms. Rub the Edamame bean pods with 1 tsp. of salt to remove the surface fuzz and wash.
4. Place the rice in a pot, add Kombu Dashi (2) and the seasonings, then mix well. Place the Eryngii mushrooms and Edamame on top of the rice.
5. Place the pot into the rice cooker. Cover and press the button to start.
6. When it's done, remove Edamame (you can eat them as an appetizer), toss the rice lightly using a rice paddle, then serve.

Garnish with chopped Mitsuba (Japanese wild parsley) if you like.
