Butter-Soy Yellow Bolete Pasta

Butter-Soy Yellow Bolete Pasta

This butter-soy yellow bolete pasta is a delicious and addictive way to enjoy fresh or dried yellow boletes (Hemileccinum subglabripes).

yellow boletes

If using fresh, be sure to pick young, firm caps and to cook them within a day or two of picking. 

I used tagliatelle noodles for this dish, but you could use soba, spaghetti, udon, or any other Asian or Italian noodle. 

Remember, always be 100% sure of what you’re harvesting. Always thoroughly cook wild mushrooms. If it’s your first time trying a particular mushroom, eat only that type and don’t eat much of it. Many non-toxic mushrooms don’t react well with certain people and can cause stomach upset.

Slice the mushrooms into bitesized pieces, discarding the stems.

Serve immediately. Enjoy!

Notice how I didn’t have you scroll through pages of mundane nonsense to get to the recipe? Notice that there were no annoying pop-ups or ads? That was on purpose!
