2) Cut off the stems of the fresh mushrooms and slice the caps. It is possible to use dried and re-hydrated or canned mushrooms, but fresh mushrooms have such a nice, pillow-y softness to them and are so tender and absorb flavors wonderfully!

3) Slice the tree fungus. If some pieces are too long, cut them in half.
