Butterscotch Cinnamon Pie (Undertale)

Let’s start with some dessert! Toriel’s Butterscotch Cinnamon pie sounds downright delicious, and Geeky Chef has whipped up an easy recipe for the sweet treat. If you want, you can even save a little time and effort by buying a pre-made pie crust, but even the crust is simple to make. This will be an interesting and tasty item to bring to your next holiday gathering.

Lava Soup (The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons)

It’s getting cold outside. Clearly, there’s nothing better to warm up with than some soup. Lava soup is an item from a line of fetch quests in Oracle of Seasons, and is as advertised—a soup made of lava. Obviously that isn’t going to work for human consumption, so Level 1 Chef has worked out an alternative, which is a spicy tomato soup. The crackers are a very nice touch, too, as it really gives the impression of cooling lava.

Gysahl Greens Smoothie (Final Fantasy XV)

Anyone that’s played Final Fantasy XV knows the game is jam packed with awesome-looking meals. It’s very difficult to pick just one recipe from the game’s plethora of foods, but at the end of the day, many of them are based on common real-life meals. So let’s look at one that’s a bit different! The Gysahl Greens Smoothie, one of the food items that Ignis cannot learn to make himself, is bought at the Wiz Chocobo post. Gysahl Greens don’t exist in our boring world, so Pixel Provisions used lettuce to get the same green color. And it makes sense—while you can use spinach, not everyone likes the taste, and lettuce is pretty much tasteless.

Jurassic Pork Soup (Chrono Trigger)

It’s always a joy to see real-life recipes of gaming food that’s left entirely up to the player’s imagination. Geeky Chef states that Jurassic Pork Soup is only in the U.S. version of Chrono Trigger, due to censorship of the alcohol. So while there wasn’t really anything to base the recipe off, he created a saimin bowl that sticks with the timeline’s theme. Interesting and tasty-looking!

Braised Riverbeast (World of Warcraft)

Sometimes all you want is some well-cooked meat. Braised Riverbeast sounds good, right? Well ‘Riverbeast’ isn’t the most descriptive term and the actual Riverbeast from World of Warcraft does not exist on Earth. Instead, Eat Game Live takes some liberties with the recipe and uses lamb shanks to replace the meat. It looks incredibly tasty!

Sea Salt Popsicle (Kingdom Hearts Series)

A sea salt popsicle somehow wound up as a cornerstone of the Kingdom Hearts plot, but how does it taste? It must be good if Roxas is eating them constantly. Thankfully, it’s not too hard to make a batch for yourself with a few ingredients and some clever mixing of food coloring! Maybe you can make some for a Kingdom Hearts III release party?

Stupendous Stew (Super Mario Odyssey)

I always get hungry when exploring the Luncheon Kingdom in Super Mario Odyssey. The kingdom’s central landmark is a volcano with a pot on top. That is where the residents create the Stupendous Stew, an incredibly tasty-looking concoction. Level 1 Chef has extensively researched this stew, and recreated it in real-life! This is a hearty meal that’s sure to please everyone.

Hot Dog Sushi (Mother 3)

Well, this is… weird. When exploring New Pork City you can come across a stand that sells Hot Dog Sushi, which doesn’t sound all that appetizing. Level 1 Chef has decided to recreate this strange food item in real life, with surprisingly great results. If you’re itching for a different culinary treat, Hot Dog Sushi will certainly change things up. Although it might worry others nearby if they see you eating such an unusual meal.

Absolute Shadow Ramen (The World Ends With You)

Sometimes you can just go for a nice bowl of ramen, and not the instant kind. The World Ends With You is a game based in a similar, but alternate reality from our own. So many of the foods you can consume in the game are things you could eat, but with some unusual names. Absolute Shadow Ramen is one of these, and Gourmet Gaming has created a delicious ramen bowl with pork chops that is easy to make.

Portal Cake (Portal)

We can’t have a gaming recipe list without this classic. The cake from Portal looks delicious, and a number of gaming recipes sites have replicated this popular food item. However, I think Gourmet Gaming has the best version of the cake. It’s not an easy recipe, however—you need to make everything from scratch and it can be difficult to assemble, but the flavor is worth the effort.
