Our Disclaimer (The serious stuff)

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team behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research.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.

Instructions

  1. Place the blueberries, sugar and 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in the bowl of a food processor, and pulse to make a thick paste. Grease a large baking sheet with 1 tablespoon of oil and set aside. Warm the milk in a small saucepan to 110 degrees, and set aside.
  2. Combine the yeast, 1 tablespoon of sugar, and 1 tablespoon of oil in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a dough hook. Add the milk to the bowl, and with the mixer on low speed, beat the mixture for 4 minutes to dissolve the yeast. Add the flour, salt, and blueberry paste to the bowl, and mix on low speed until the dough begins to come together. Increase the mixing speed to medium and beat until the dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl and forms a tight ball, about 2 minutes.
  3. Oil a large mixing bowl with 1 tablespoon of oil. Remove the dough from the mixer and place it in the oiled mixing bowl, turning to lightly coat with oil. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap or a damp kitchen towel, and set in a warm, draft-free place. Let the dough rise until doubled in size, about 2 hours.
  4. Remove the dough from the bowl and turn it onto a lightly floured surface. Roll the dough into a 12-inch by 10-inch rectangle. Cut the dough with a sharp knife into 18 pieces (about 1/4-cup each). Gently roll and pull each one into a long thin ribbon, about 1/2-inch in diameter and 14-inches in length. Bring the ends up to form a U-shape and twist to form a wreath, bringing the ends down and across as though making a bow, pressing down to seal the ends.
  5. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add the pretzels in batches of 6. Cook, turning once, about 2 minutes on each side. Remove from the water and drain on paper towels.
  6. Combine the beaten egg with 2 tablespoons of water. Brush the pretzels with the mixture and sprinkle with a combination of the remaining sugar and 1/2-teaspoon cinnamon. Place on the prepared baking pan and bake until golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes.
  7. Remove the pretzels from the oven, and serve warm with honeyed cream cheese.
  8. This recipe yields 18 servings.

Tips

Health Tips

  • Studies have shown people who drink full fat milk are thinner than those who drink low-fat or fat-free milk instead. Keep that in mind before you decide to swap. If you want to go dairy free, however, you can replace milk with unsweetened soy milk in most recipes.

  • You can easily swap half of the white flour in most recipes for whole wheat flour to add some fiber and protein. It does result in a heavier dough, so for cookies, cakes, etc., you might try swapping in whole wheat pastry flour.

  • If you're trying to cut back on sugar, consider replacing some of the sugar in this recipe with a sweetener like Stevia or Splenda. If you're against these kinds of sweeteners, start reducing the amount of real sugar you use until your tastebuds adjust.

  • Be conscious of your choice of cooking oils. Some studies have shown that vegetable oils like safflower oil, sunflower oil, and canola oil might actually contribute to heart disease. Olive oil is a good alternative for low temperature cooking, while coconut oil is a recent favorite for high temperature cooking. Do your research!

Price Tips

  • Most dairy products stay good well past their sell-by date. Instead of throwing out perfectly safe food that is just a few days or maybe even a week or two old, make sure the product smells fine, has a normal texture, and doesn't taste funny. Sniff testing isn't exactly rocket science and it can keep you from wasting food (and money).

Cooking Tips

  • There are two types of cinnamon. The more expensive and rarer type is Ceylon cinnamon (considered to be "true cinnamon"). The cinnamon most common in North America is cassia cinnamon. Though the flavor is certainly similar, Ceylon cinnamon is said to be more subtle yet also more complex.

  • Don't waste any egg yolks or egg whites left over from separating eggs. Both can be frozen and used later (ice cube trays come in handy here!)

  • If you need to soften a block of cream cheese before using it, you can unwrap it and heat it in the microwave on high for 10-15 seconds at a time until it is soft enough.

Green Tips

  • To avoid antibiotics, hormones, and other nasties in your milk, choose organic whenever possible. If you can't afford organic, look for milk labeled hormone and antibiotic free. It is often less expensive.
