Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom: How to get Hearty Truffles

Nintendo /

There are many items and consumables that benefit Link in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. If you played The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, you may remember the consumable Hearty Truffles. Hearty Truffles are a great way to get some of your hearts back and they are even better when they are cooked. However, these rare mushrooms can be hard to find, especially if you don’t know where to look for them.

Where Hearty Truffles are found in Tears of the Kingdom

The first thing you need to know about Hearty Truffles is that they hate the sunlight and that they only spawn in shaded or damp areas. This can be anywhere from a specific cave, swampy areas, or even in shaded areas around trees.

Some of the best caves to begin looking inside are the caves that are located in West Necluda or Hyrule Fields. Search these caves and you may be lucky to find some Hearty Truffles. There is also a cave called Passeri Greenbelt Cave that has Hearty Truffles that spawn inside. This cave is located West of Lookout Landing.

There is also such an item called Big Hearty Truffles. These consumables also heal you like regular Hearty Truffles except the Big Hearty Truffles provide a little extra health healing. Same as regular Hearty Truffles, Big Hearty Truffles can be found in darker areas as well. If you are searching for these, I would suggest searching in the Gerudo Desert and East Necluda.

Other Caves where Hearty Truffles are located in Tears of the Kingdom

  • Mount Floria Cave
  • Mount Dunsel Cave
  • Retsam Forest Cave

Best uses of Hearty Truffles in Tears of the Kingdom

Hearty Truffles are consumed in order to help heal a couple of your hearts. While Hearty Truffles can be eaten raw, it is not suggested to do so. They aren’t as effective when they are raw. They are extremely beneficial when they are cooked and combined in recipes to create other tasty treats.

Just one of the many different combinations you can use Hearty Truffles to create is to make a Hearty Mushroom Skewer. The Hearty Mushroom Skewer is created by cooking a Hearty Truffle with Hateno Cheese. Consuming a Hearty Mushroom Skewer grants you full recovery plus two hearts. Hearty Truffle recipes really come in handy when you are planning on facing a boss or plan on going on a long expedition that will require many battles.

Since Hearty Truffles are more on the rarer side, I highly suggest marking down where you have found Heart Truffles. This way after you harvest them, you can return a little while later and check that area to see if more have spawned. Just remember that they love dark areas, so don’t be searching in well-lit areas.
