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behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research.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

A mixture of bird's eye chili, cilantro, lime juice, and a handful of other ingredients are all it takes to make this recipe so flavorful. This recipe is typical of Asian cuisine. From preparation to the plate, this recipe takes around 45 minutes. It is a good option if you're following a gluten free, dairy free, and pescatarian diet. All things considered, we decided this recipe deserves a spoonacular score of 12%. This score is rather bad. Try Thai Ginger Lime Cooler, Thai Beef Salad with Peanut Lime Dressing, and Spicy Thai Noodles with Ginger Peanut Dressing for similar recipes.

Thai on the menu? Try pairing with Chenin Blanc, Gewurztraminer, and Riesling. The best wine for Asian food depends on the cuisine and dish - of course - but these acidic whites pair with a number of traditional meals, spicy or not. You could try Baron Herzog Chenin Blanc (OU Kosher). Reviewers quite like it with a 4.1 out of 5 star rating and a price of about 12 dollars per bottle.

Baron Herzog Chenin Blanc (OU Kosher)

A fresh and round mouth feel with intense fruity notes of nectarine, gooseberry and pine with a bright, clean finish. A versatile wine to enjoy with spicy ethnic foods from Chinese to Indian. Also great as an aperitif.

Tips

Health Tips

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

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

  • 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!

  • Before you pass up garlic because you don't want the bad breath that comes with it, keep in mind that the compounds that cause garlic breath also offer a lot of health benefits. Garlic has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antibacterial, and antiviral properties. If you really want to get the most health benefits out of your garlic, choose Spanish garlic, which contains the most allicin (one of garlic's most beneficial compounds).

Price Tips

  • Fresh herbs can be expensive, so don't let them go to waste. If you have any leftovers, you might be able to freeze them. The Kitchn recommends freezing hardy herbs like rosemary and thyme in olive oil, while Better Homes and Gardens suggests using freezer bags to freeze basil, chives, mint, and more.

Cooking Tips

  • Keeping ginger on hand all the time doesn't mean you have to buy bottled ginger. Instead, freeze fresh ginger whole and grate what you need while its still frozen.

  • Fish sauce is a popular ingredient in several Asian cuisines made from salted, fermented fish. It is used to kick up the umami in a dish. If you don't have fish sauce, you can try substituting Worcestershire sauce or soy sauce.

  • Fresh herbs should be added toward the end of the cooking process — even at the very last minute?especially delicate herbs like cilantro, basil, and dill. Hardier herbs like bay leaves, rosemary, and thyme can be added earlier.

  • The average fresh lime contains 2 tablespoons of lime juice (just in case you are substituting bottled lime juice).
