The Best Valheim Food Recipes That Could Be Good in Real Life

Despite Valheims mythical and grim world, there are a handful of food recipes from the game that translate well to real-life cooking. These virtual recipes play an important role in the mechanics of the game, restoring the health and stamina of the player’s Viking character. A good deal of both is a wise move for everyone Valheim player, as there is a significant number of challenging enemies to encounter frequently.

While some available meals may be repulsive to look at, there are a few that can easily be brought to real life. While these may not be the best meals in Valheim for increasing the stats, they have the most appetizing appearance or are made from solid ingredients.

While bread is one of the simpler foods in the game, there’s beauty in that simplicity. Made from bread dough baked in Valheim‘s Stone Oven, Bread is a power meal for players looking to build their stamina. Bread increases health by only 23 points, but stamina by 70 points. Bread is a staple food that is an important part of the diet of many cultures, and Valheim calls for an approach to ingredients that would create the meal in real life: 10 barley flour to make 2 bread dough.

Fish Wraps

Another meal that calls for realistic ingredients is Fish Wraps. Made by combining two cooked fish and four barley flours, Fish Wraps have the appearance of a traditional wrap that is lightly toasted and filled with vegetables and fish. Fish Wraps in Valheim a player’s health bar at 70 points and their stamina at 23. Making this recipe in real life would require more ingredients, but to match the look of this pixelated creation all you need to do is add lettuce. Anyway, fishing is required for those who want to make this recipe from Valheim.

Lox Meat Pie

One of the more traditional looking meals in Valheim, Lox Meat Pie looks like something players can make at home. This pie requires an intense list of ingredients, requiring four barley flour, two cloudberries, and two Lox Meat to make. After these ingredients are combined on a level 4 Cauldron in Valheim, players must bake it in a brick oven. While these ingredients contain things that don’t exist in real life, meat pies are a common food item with ground beef, pork, potatoes, chopped onion, and herbs in place of the cloudberries.

Cooked Venison

While not one of the more complex meals in ValheimCooked Deer Meat is one of the best looking “cooked” meats in the game. Styled to look like a rack of ribs, players only need to kill a deer and place the meat on a cooking station over a fire. The resulting creation doesn’t have too much health (35 points) or stamina (12 points), but it does have the advantage of looking attractive to the player’s Viking. The real-life variant doesn’t need to change much, as venison can be legally purchased and cooked at home.


For dessert, players can consider the recently added EyeScream a tasty option. While the ingredients aren’t exactly the tastiest (three Greydwarf eyes and a Freeze Gland), the resulting creation looks like little more than glowing ice. Replacing those ingredients with food coloring and soft serve vanilla ice cream would result in a stylized dessert.

Valheim is available now for PC and will be released in early 2023 for Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.
