How to unlock recipes in Disney Dreamlight Valley

Unlocking recipes happens by accident in most cases. You can sometimes dig up new recipe books.

If you enter the homes of Valley residents, you’ll occasionally find a telltale sparkle hidden in the corner or stuffed in the refrigerator that may be a recipe book as well.

However, the best way to unlock recipes is just by cooking them.

You can experiment with ingredients and successfully cook a new dish without knowing the recipe first.

Most ingredients, such as vegetables, fruits, and fish, come from the wild, but once you invite Remy to the valley and progress his quests - which require making ratatouille and bouillabaisse along the way - you can unlock other key items, including eggs, cheese, peanuts, and milk.

Disney Dreamlight Valley Appetizer recipes list

Appetizers are your ticket to easy money and energy early in Dreamlight Valley. Most of them, even 4-star recipes and higher, use ingredients that are comparatively easy to source.

If you need easy and cheap recipes, this is the section for you.

Disney Dreamlight Valley Entree recipes list

Dreamlight Valley features more than 80 entree recipes. These typically involve, and rarer, ingredients than your appetizer recipes.

In return, these complex creations restore more energy and frequently sell for a substantial number of Star Coins.

Make sure to weigh up ingredient costs and rarities compared to sell prices or how much energy a meal restores. A high-quality meal doesn’t always equate to a high-value meal.

If you're still catching up on the storyline, make sure you check out our guides on the Nature and Nurture quest, Toy Story Realm and how to get Stitch. For more help, check out our recipe list, how to upgrade your house, critters' favourite foods and redemption codes. Finally, don't forget to visit our future and current character list to see who might be visiting the valley next!

Best 3-Star recipes in Disney Dreamlight Valley

If you need a quick 3-star recipe for a quest or just to bump your energy up, look no further than the puff appetizers.

You can make these early in the game and with ingredients that you have greater control over.

These require:

  • Eggs
  • Cheese
  • Bell Pepper or Pumpkin or Eggplant

Unlike many 3-star entrees, which require fish of a specific variety, you can just grow the required vegetables and purchase milk and eggs from Remy.

Speaking of Remy, if you have the cash and don’t mind spending it, you can buy eggs, cheese, and milk to create an omelet.

Omelets use:

  • Eggs
  • Cheese
  • Milk

If you aren’t bothered by energy value and sell price, throw two vegetables in the pot with some lettuce for a Hearty Salad, and you’re good to go.

Best 4-Star recipes in Disney Dreamlight Valley

Look to Veggie Casserole for the quickest, cheapest 4-star recipe. Acquiring cheese is your biggest inconvenience, though once you invite Remy to the Village, you can pop over to the restaurant and buy what you need.

Veggie Casserole requires:

  • 2 vegetables of any kind
  • Cheese
  • Any herb

For something a bit more involved, try the basil omelet. It also boasts easy-to-obtain ingredients and restores a substantial amount of energy.

A comparatively low sell price means you aren’t missing much by eating it.

For the Basil Omelet, you need:

  • Basil
  • Egg
  • Cheese
  • Milk

Best 5-Star recipes in Disney Dreamlight Valley

Large Seafood Platter and Potato Leek Soup are two of the less expensive five-star meals you can make. They use common ingredients, and low returns on energy and Star Coins make them an easy choice for giving away.

Large Seafood Platter requires:

  • Lemon
  • Four of any shellfish

For Potato Leek Soup, you need:

  • Milk
  • Onion
  • Garlic
  • Potato
  • Leek

Best recipes for energy in Disney Dreamlight Valley

Fish dishes rise above all others when it comes to energy restoration, and if you have the patience to try catching multiple anglerfish, the dishes you can cook with it are among the best.

Smoked Peanuts and Anglerfish, a 2-star recipe that only uses anglerfish and peanuts, restores nearly 4,000 energy and sells for 800 Star Coins more than you get from just hawking the anglerfish on its own.

Lobster Roll and Poached Basil Butter Sturgeon restore nearly 5,000 energy each, but require more ingredient hunting.

Lobster Roll uses:

  • Wheat
  • Lemon
  • Garlic
  • Lobster
  • Butter

Poached Basil Butter Sturgeon’s ingredients probably won’t come as a surprise given the name.

  • Basil
  • Sturgeon
  • Butter
  • Lemon

Outside fish dishes, your best choices for energy restoration are Porridge with Fruit and Basil Omelet we recommended under 4-star recipes, both of which use easily sourced ingredients.

Fruit Porridge takes:

  • Any fruit
  • Milk
  • Wheat

Best recipes to sell in Disney Dreamlight Valley

Smoked Peanuts and Anglerfish and Pan-Fried Anglerfish take the crown in this category as well. Meals tend to sell for less than other items, but both of these sell for over 2,000 Star Coins The only downside is relying on luck to catch the elusive Anglerfish.

  • Pan-Fried Anglerfish [sells for 2,400 Star Coins]
  • Anglerfish [free, can catch in Forgotten Lands]
  • Potato [seeds cost 55 Star Coins]
  • Tomato [seeds cost 8 Star Coins]
  • Zucchini [seeds cost 40 Star Coins]

For the less patient, any of the puff appetizer recipes we mention in the 3-star section fetch a respectable sum of money, especially early in the game, and they give you something to do with all those veggies you’re growing.

  • Bell Pepper Puffs – sells for 606 Star Coins
  • Potato Puffs – sells for 736 Star Coins
  • Eggplant Puffs – sells for 991 Star Coins
  • Pumpkin Puffs – 1,400 Star Coins

Once you access the Forgotten Land and acquire pumpkin seeds, we recommend always growing a small batch of pumpkins to make Pumpkin Soup.

  • Pumpkin Soup [sells for 1,500 Star Coins]
  • Pumpkin
  • Milk

Best of luck with you Disney Dreamlight Valley recipe needs!
