Disney Dreamlight Valley recipes list and how to cook them

With over 190 Dreamlight Valley recipes now in-game, we've got them all right here, their star-rating, a food group ingredients list and a cooking guide.

How to cook all Disney Dreamlight Valley recipes

What are all the Dreamlight Valley recipes? Cooking is crucial to success in the Disney life sim as you’ll need to cook up some tasty grub to earn Dreamlight, make friends, and keep your stamina up. There are over 190 recipes to discover so far, and that’s a lot of recipes to keep track of. Luckily, once you’ve made a recipe once it automatically saves to your in-game cook book, so we’re here to get your recipe list bursting at the seams.

The way to the hearts of all the Dreamlight Valley characters can be found through their stomachs, but it’s equally important to keep yourself well-fed, too. Some Dreamlight Valley recipes – like the bouillabaisse recipe – offer more stamina than others, and while some can be obtained from completing quests, such as Remy’s ratatouille recipe and Minnie’s picnic favourites: crudites and fish sandwiches, others are unlocked by trying different ingredients together. To make it easier to get the most nutritious meals, we’ve compiled them all below, with five-star recipes offering the most energy.

Disney Dreamlight Valley food groups and ingredients: A list of the Dreamlight Valley spices and herbs and seafood, taken from the game's collection menu.

Food groups and ingredients

You might see a recipe in which you can include “any sweet”, so you need to know what this includes. This doesn’t quite match up with the list in-game, either. In the in-game ingredient collection list, for example, vanilla is listed under spices and herbs, while sugarcane is listed under grains. In recipes, however, both are considered a sweet. Anything not included below is a separate entity, for example despite being dairy, cheese cannot replace milk in a recipe.

  • Vegetables: Asparagus, bell pepper, carrot, corn, cucumber, eggplant, leek, lettuce, okra, onion, potato, pumpkin, spinach, tomato, zucchini
  • Fruit: Apple, banana, blueberry, cherry, coconut, gooseberry, lemon, raspberry
  • Sweet: Cocoa bean, sugarcane, vanilla
  • Dairy: Butter, milk
  • Shellfish: Clam, crab, lobster, oyster, scallop, shrimp
  • Fish: Anglerfish, bass, bream, carp, catfish, cod, fugu, herring, kingfish, lancetfish, perch, pike, rainbow trout, salmon, sole, squid, swordfish, tilapia, tuna, walleye, white sturgeon
  • Spice: Basil, garlic, ginger, mushroom, oregano
  • Grains: Canola, rice, soya, wheat

How to cook in Disney Dreamlight Valley: The player character stands over the stove, with a list of ingredients appearing at the side.

How to cook in Disney Dreamlight Valley

Cooking in Disney Dreamlight Valley is remarkably simple, especially with all the above recipes at your disposal. All you need is a stove, some coal, and the required ingredients – you don’t even need to have unlocked the recipe.

There are actually a few stoves available to you in order to cook up your Dreamlight Valley recipes. As well as receiving one in your house in an early quest, you can use the stoves in Remy’s restaurant, characters’ houses, the Elephant Graveyard in Sunlit Plateau, and any realms with a stove.

At the stove, simply drag and drop the ingredients from your inventory into the pot, and the fuel will be added automatically, even if it’s in your home inventory. You can also autofill any recipes you’ve already unlocked by selecting the recipe from the list and clicking autofill – just as long as you have all the ingredients on your person.

Best Dreamlight Valley recipes

When you’re not rustling something up for a specific challenge or gift, one of the most important things to bear in mind when cooking Disney Dreamlight Valley recipes is that they vary in use. When making them to increase your own energy levels, cook with the best ingredients for the biggest energy boost. These will also sell for more money at Goofy’s stalls. However, some recipes require more ingredients – the number of ingredients directly correlates to the star-rating – and others may need to purchased from Remy in the first place, so weigh up the best options for your current needs – and the ingredients available to you.

Farming money

The best recipes for farming money all include pumpkins, the most profitable ingredient in the game. While you can sell pumpkins individually for a large profit, and this is the easiest method of farming the most money, you can earn even more by turning them into pumpkin puffs.

Energy boost

For an energy boost, its all about using the best ingredients, and you can even add more of them to further increase the energy provided. One of the best recipes for energy is actually berry salad, which is made with one raspberry, one blueberry, and one gooseberry – all incredibly easy to gather in large quantities – for 2,210 energy. This is the perfect recipe to demonstrate and utilise the flexibility of cooking though, as you can add a second gooseberry to this recipe, and consuming this berry salad will provide you with 2,810 energy.

Now you have all the instructions for cooking in the Disney game, you can start gathering all the ingredients you need. Our Dreamlight Valley guide has some tips to help with that. You’ll no doubt need increased storage for this, so you should upgrade your Dreamlight Valley house while you’re at it, and make sure you’ll fully equipped to get by in one of the best life games around right now.
