One of the many side tasks in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is Gloom-borne Illness. As a result, how to prepare the porridge for the “Gloom-borne Illness”, is described in the article below.
This mission, which requires you to cure someone of Gloom, can be found in Kakariko Village, in the Enchanted armor shop. It appears that Link isn’t the only one who has been affected by Gloom, a blight of reddish-purple sludge that is stealing the lifeforce of individuals throughout Hyrule.
In this section, we’ll go through how to finish the quest, as well as how to create the Sunny Veggie Porridge and where to find each of the ingredients, including “wild greens.”
HOW TO START THE ‘GLOOM-BORNE ILLNESS’ QUEST
Go to Kakariko Village in Hyrule’s southeast first. The location’s coordinates are 1845, -0969, 0115 if you haven’t gone there yet.
When you get in the settlement, go to the armor store and speak with Claree (the clerk there).
She will admit that she has to charge exorbitant charges for her equipment due to her grandmother’s severe illness. We don’t support pandemic profiteering, which is what this sounds like. However, we need her armor so that we can and will assist her.
Find Lasli, who is sitting outside her grandmother’s house just up the slope from the armor shop and talking to herself about porridge, according to what Claree wants you to do.
SUNNY VEGGIE PORRIDGE INGREDIENTS
Porridge, it seems, is the only thing her grandmother will eat. To make Sunny Veggie Porridge in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, you need:
- Hylian Rice
- Fresh Milk
- ‘Wild greens’ (Sundelion)

Even though the term “wild greens” is undefined, the porridge explicitly requires the Sundelion because of its gloom resistance abilities.
Let’s run through how to source them one-by-one.
HYLIAN RICE LOCATIONS
Hylian Rice can be found between Kakariko Village and Hateno Village, but rather than looking for them in the wild, you can buy them from Hateno Village’s General Store (3356, -2517, 0018).
We need to head there anyway, so make life easy for yourself and spend the 12 Rupees.
FRESH MILK LOCATIONS
Like the Hylian Rice, you can buy Fresh Milk at Hateno Village’s General Store. It’s another 12 Rupees, but you’re not about to go and milk a cow yourself are you?
HOW TO GET ‘WILD GREENS’
The ‘wild greens’ are, in fact, Sundelion. Chances are you’ll have a few Sundelion on you but if you’re missing some, you can find them in Hyrule Field and Eldin Canyon, or most commonly up in the Sky Islands.
‘GLOOM-BORNE ILLNESS’ QUEST REWARDS
Once you have all of the above, combine them to make the Sunny Veggie Porridge.
Now head back to Lasli and give her the porridge. Her gran is suspiciously much better after a single bite — something Claree comments on.
Lasli will give you a bowl of Energizing Veggie Porridge for your trouble, while Claree has the good grace to reverse her price hike and sell you her armor — the Steath armor set and Radiant Set — at a still costly but far more reasonable price of 1800 and 2400 rupees total respectively.
Well done on completing the quest! While you are in Kakariko Village, if you haven’t already, it’s worth completing the Makasura Shrine just to the south.
