Druidic Meatballs in Circle of Spore Sauce

The core of D&D is storytelling. You and your friends tell a story together, guiding your heroes through quests for treasure, battles with deadly foes, daring rescues, courtly intrigue, and much more. You can also explore the world of Dungeons & Dragons through any of the novels written by its fantasy authors, as well as engaging board games and immersive video games. All of these stories are part of D&D.

Loxodons tower above most other humanoids, standing over 7 feet tall. They have the heads- trunks, tusks, ears, and faces-of elephants, and hulking bipedal bodies covered by thick, leathery skin. Each of their hands has four thick digits, and their feet are the flat-bottomed, oval-shaped feet of elephants. Like that of an elephant, a loxodon’s trunk is a useful appendage. In addition to providing a keen sense of smell, the trunk can be used to lift and carry even heavy objects. The trunk can be used to carry both food and liquid to the mouth and can even act as a snorkel.

Ingredients

12 Vegetarian Meatballs
2 tbsp Butter
1 tbsp Olive Oil
4 Spring Onions (chopped)
200g Button Mushrooms (quartered)
1 tbsp Cornflour
1 Carrot (finely chopped)
150ml White Wine
250ml Vegetable Stock
100ml Double Cream
Salt & Pepper
1 tsp Rosemary
2 tbsp Black Truffles

I have recently started playing Dungeons and Dragons with a few friends and it is my first time playing. I’ve chosen a Loxodon for my character although he is a smaller than average Loxodon because the game is taking us into tight spaces. I’ve worked this into my character so it’s good! To mark my introduction to the game, I’ve created this recipe which ties to my character. I had some black truffles which I received at Christmas and wanted to incorporate them into a meal and it fit so nicely with my character! I am aiming to add recipes for the other characters too in the next week!

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1
Cook the meatballs as per packet instructions either by baking or in a pan over the hob. Set aside.
Step 2
In a saucepan, heat the butter and olive oil and then add the spring onions, carrot and mushrooms. Cook for 10 minutes until the onion is soft. Mix the cornflour with 2 tbsp water then stir into the pan.
Step 3
Reduce the temperature to low and and the wine. Cook until the alcohol has evaporated and then add the stock, salt, pepper and rosemary. Keep stirring until the sauce thickens, then add the cream.
Step 4
Add the meatballs and stir to cover them in the sauce. Grate in the truffles immediately and stir softly. Take off the heat and serve, as the truffles will lose their aroma quickly.
