By using our free meal planner (and the rest of spoonacular.com) you have to agree that you and only you are responsible for anything that happens to you because of something you have read on this site or have bought/cooked/eaten because of this site. After all, the only person who controls what you put in your mouth is you, right?

Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice. Similarly, our health tips are based on articles we have read from various sources across the web, and are not based on any medical training. The team behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research. If you need help planning your diet or determining which foods (and recipes) are safe for you, contact a registered dietitian, allergist, or another medical professional.

Cajun works really well with Sauvignon Blanc, rosé Wine, and Albarino. These low-tannin, lower alcohol wines will complement the heat in spicy cajun dishes, instead of making your mouth burn more. You could try Tortoise Creek Sauvignon Blanc. Reviewers quite like it with a 4.7 out of 5 star rating and a price of about 10 dollars per bottle.

Tortoise Creek Sauvignon Blanc

A very well-balanced and aromatic style of Sauvignon Blanc with passion fruit and grapefruit notes. The palate is crisp and dry, but yet packed with citrus. Perfect on its own or it will pair nicely with asparagus, chicken salads or cream pasta dishes.100% Sauvignon Blanc from the vineyards of Puilacher, which is close to Montpellier, alongside the Hérault River in the Languedoc. The location is perfect for Sauvignon because of the cool climate and rich soils.
