Processing ingredients in Genshin Impact is a way of cultivating resources to cook different recipes. Items like flour can only be processed or bought from merchants and are needed in a variety of dishes in Genshin Impact.

Cooking in Genshin Impact is a valuable mechanic of the game that provides your party with HP and combat buffs. As health isn’t regenerative in the game, you’ll quickly discover how useful cooking can be, as evidenced by the sheer number of campfires you’ll stumble across in the wilderness of Teyvat.

To gather the ingredients needed for dishes, you’ll need to process the natural materials found in the wild to make them edible first. You can also visit the Mondstadt General Goods Shop or Liyue Harbor’s Second Life to purchase ingredients.

To use the processing mechanic of the game, simply navigate through the cooking menu after interacting with a campfire, there will be a processing tab near the top (chilli icon) with a list of possible ingredients you can make from your inventory.

Processing in Genshin Impact takes real-time to complete. You can exit out of the processing menu and return to any campfire in the world to collect your ingredients when finished. You’ll also get a notification to say when ingredients are ready, which is handy if you’re in the middle of a quest.

Remember to light a campfire before trying to use it, you can do this by using any ability from a Pyro character in your roster.
