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team behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research.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. Raspberry Sauce:
  2. In a saucepan, add the frozen raspberries and powdered sugar.
  3. Bring to a simmer and cook for about 3-4 minutes.
  4. Gently mash the raspberries with the back of a spatula while they cook.
  5. After 4 minutes, remove from heat and add the raspberry jam. You could puree this mixture before serving, but I prefer it chunky.
  6. Chocolate Sauce:
  7. In a saucepan, add the chocolate chips and cream.
  8. Allow the chocolate chips to melt, stirring occasionally.
  9. Remove from heat once chips have melted and add the golden syrup.
  10. Beignets:
  11. Heat the 1% milk in a saucepan.
  12. Once it starts to simmer, remove pan from heat and add the buttermilk.
  13. Pour milk into a standing mixer.
  14. To the milk, whisk in the yeast and sugar. Let sit until foamy, approximately 5 minutes.
  15. In a separate bowl, mix the flours, baking soda and salt.
  16. Turn the mixer on low speed and slowly add the flour mixture until just incorporated and dough is in the shape of a ball and is slightly sticky.
  17. Cover the standing mixer bowl with saran wrap and let sit in a warm, draft-free location for about an hour.
  18. After an hour, lightly flour your work surface and pour out your dough.
  19. Using as little flour as possible, fold the dough over in half and tuck in the edges to make a ball.
  20. Flatten the ball and with a floured rolling pin.
  21. Roll the ball out into a circle until the circle is about an inch thick.
  22. Using a knife or other sharp object cut the dough into any shape you want. I find that cutting the dough into long and thick logs makes the beignets good for dipping.
  23. Let sit for a few minutes.
  24. In the meantime, pour canola oil into a Dutch oven until the oil is about 2-3 inches deep.
  25. Heat oil to 375 degrees.
  26. Once oil is hot, drop in the dough 4-5 at a time and turn frequently.
  27. Allow to fry for 2-3 minutes, or until a lovely golden dark brown.
  28. Transfer the beignets to a drain on a paper towel lined plate.
  29. Add some powdered sugar to the brown paper bag and drop in 3-4 beignets.
  30. Close the bag and shake until the beignets are completely covered in powdered sugar.
  31. Serve warm with the dipping sauces.

Tips

Health Tips

  • 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 following a vegan diet (or avoiding dairy), make sure the brand of chocolate chips you buy is suitable for your diet! Always read the labels carefully. If you cannot find chocolate chips free from milk or other dairy in stores near you, look online.

  • Frozen (and potentially even canned) fruit and vegetables contain as much?if not more?vitamins than fresh versions that have been sitting around the supermarket too long. So don't hesitate to buy canned or frozen goods if your budget or the season doesn't allow for fresh!

  • If you really want to benefit from chocolate's health benefits, use cacao nibs instead of chocolate chips. They are much less processed than chocolate chips and have no added sugar!

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

  • Confused by the different types of cream — Most differences arise from the fat content of the cream, and whether or not the cream has been "soured" by adding lactic acid bacteria to give it a tangy flavor.

  • Don't despair if you don't have powdered sugar on hand. All you need is granulated sugar and a good blender. Pour in the granulated sugar and blend at a high speed until you have a powder.

  • If a recipe calls for buttermilk and you don't have any on hand, just pour a tablespoon of white vinegar into a glass and add enough milk to make one cup. Let sit for about five minutes, and voila, a great buttermilk substitute!

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.

  • According to the Non-GMO Project, about 90% of the canola oil in the United States is made from genetically modified rapeseed, so if this issue is important to you be sure to buy certified organic or certified GMO-free canola oil!
