Recipe Template Quantities
Many recipe templates require a minimum quantity of a vegetable tagged ingredient. For example, sauteed vegetables requires 100g of one vegetabe tagged ingredient.
Some ingredients (garlic & black truffles) can only be used in small quantities so cannot be used to meet the minimum requirements of a recipe template. They can still be added for flavour and taste, but another vegetable must be added to meet the recipe template requirement.
Cooking Time Required: When It Matters
Matters a lot:
- Vegetable side dishes (e.g. sauteed vegetables, grilled vegetables, roast vegetables).
- Most recipe templates that require cooking equipment (e.g. grill).
Matters a little/doesn’t matter:
- Recipe templates that only use a counter (e.g. salads, sandwiches, most desserts).
- When the recipe already contains another ingredient with a higher cooking time required.
- Certain ingredient types don’t increase cooking time required e.g. spices.
Vegetables with Low Cooking Time Required
When no ingredients are added, sauteed vegetables takes 2:30 to prepare:
Black truffle, beet and pickles don’t add to the total time required:
These ingredients increase the time required, but not by much:
These ingredients can be used and still keep the time required under 7 minutes:
A creamy soup with a low cook time and maximum flavour, taste and skills.
The basis of a good sandwich. Just add veg.
This is a weird one. I didn’t have many compatible ingredients with rocket and I needed another nut recipe on the menu. A lot of these ingredients have a blue level of flavour compatibility with each other so I could still get 50 flavour.
The recipe works when any veg is substituted in the first slot. Using pickles instead of rocket reduces price and cook time.
