Minecraft has evolved so much over the last decade, seeing tonnes of new mobs, materials and sights make their way to the game. That being said, the recipe book has only incrementally changed each time. If you're looking for some huge changes to the very fabric of the game and the way you interact with it, a good Minecraft Recipe mod may be what you're looking for.
Here are some of the best mods we can find that severely change your recipes. They will all change other parts of the game but its recipes are where we think it stands out.

After this, you can just bring over your new mods by adding them to the forge and clicking on them from the main menu. Just boot up your mod, making sure to only pick one at a time. Here are the recipe mods you should be playing.
