Once you have progressed so far in Ooblets you will unlock your first farm, and inside is a piece of equipment called the old hot plate. Here you can put together a few basic recipes from ingredients you have either foraged from Badgetown or seeds you have planted and grown.

For instance, to make the delicious hop dob, you will need a caroot and some muz flour. To find more recipes you can find glowing gold items all around the world, which are randomly assigned forageable items that can occasionally be a recipe piece. If you gather four recipe pieces in your inventory, you are given the option to combine them and create one random recipe.

Other than that, you can use the wishies you collect from regular gameplay and collecting badges, and spend them on select recipes at the wishing well in the middle of Badgetown.
