Feast like a king

One of the many recipes that Link can make in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is the Vegetable Risotto. This versatile recipe allows players to make a vegetarian-friendly dish that is quite useful and flexible in terms of ingredients. Here’s what you need to use to make a Vegetable Risotto anytime.

Vegetable Risotto recipe in Tears of the Kingdom

To make the Vegetable Risotto dish in Tears of the Kingdom, simply combine the ingredients below:

  • Hylian Rice
  • Rock Salt
  • Goat Butter
  • 1-2 vegetables

This is a highly flexible recipe, compared to some of the more complicated ones, in that you can choose what the final two items are. The Rice, Salt, and Butter are always set in stone and need to be in the dish. Outside of that, you can pick what two vegetables to use here.

You can use items like two Pumpkins or two Swift Carrots, and you’ll complete the Vegetable Risotto with ease. Note that you want to make sure you’re actually using vegetables to make this. For example, as you likely know, a tomato is a fruit, which will result in something else entirely. Also, Peppers don’t work in this dish for some reason.

Vegetable Risotto’s effects depend on what type of vegetable you use. In its base form, it will simply restore three hearts. But if you use a specific vegetable that has additional effects, such as the Swift Carrot, it will give an additional effect. This can include a few minutes of moving faster or a temporary boost to your defense.

How to get the Vegetable Risotto ingredients

Before you can even make the Vegetable Risotto dish, though, you’ll need its required ingredients. The Hylian Rice, Goat Butter, and Rock Salt can all be found at most general stores. Head to places like the general store in Lookout Landing for Rice, Hateno Village for Goat Butter, and Goron City for Rock Salt.

Additionally, you can farm for Rock Salt manually by breaking apart rocks in caves and underground for the occasional chance of finding this item. As for the vegetables, you can also get these from general stores and the bazaar in the desert. It is possible to get most of these ingredients at a single shop and then make them nearby at a cooking pot, making this one of the most accessible food recipes.
