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behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research.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

  2. To press the tofu, sandwich the tofu between two plates. Weigh the top plate with a heavy book, and press for 30 minutes. Remove the weight and top plate, and empty the water from the bottom plate. The tofu is now ready.
  3. Preheat the broiler. Slice the pressed tofu into thirds lengthwise.
  4. Place the tofu on a lightly oiled baking sheet and spread the tofu with the marinade.
  5. Broil the tofu 3 to 4 inches from the heat for 5 to 7 minutes on each side, until browned and crisp on the edges. Serve it straight from the oven or make a tofu sandwich on toasted multigrain bread topped with your favorite condiments.

Tips

Health Tips

  • Ketchup can pack in a surprising amount of sugar, so read the nutrition facts label and find a brand that doesn't have too much. Of course, you can also make your own ketchup so you can control how much sugar goes in.

  • You can reduce your sodium intake by choosing lower-sodium soy sauce.

  • If you're following a gluten-free diet, be sure to find a gluten-free soy sauce!

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).

  • Making your own ketchup from scratch won't actually save you money and will definitely cost you more time. Personally, we will be sticking with store bought, but watching our serving sizes to avoid too much sugar.

Cooking Tips

  • 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.
