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behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research.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

Salsa Verde (Vegan Gluten Free) might be just the hor d'oeuvre you are searching for. For 19 cents per serving, this recipe covers 2% of your daily requirements of vitamins and minerals. This recipe makes 8 servings with 13 calories, 0g of protein, and 0g of fat each. Only a few people made this recipe, and 1 would say it hit the spot. It is a good option if you're following a caveman, gluten free, primal, and whole 30 diet. From preparation to the plate, this recipe takes around 25 minutes. A mixture of juice of lime, garlic, jalapeños, and a handful of other ingredients are all it takes to make this recipe so delicious. This recipe is typical of Mexican cuisine. All things considered, we decided this recipe deserves a spoonacular score of 2%. This score is very bad (but still fixable). Try Spicy Salsa Verde – Low Carb and Gluten Free, Gluten-Free Vegan Walnut and Oat Brownies (Vegan, Gluten-Free, Grain-Free, Flourless, Dairy-Free, No Refined Sugar), and The Most Delicious Meatless Black Bean Loaf with Creamy Avocado Verde Sauce (vegan, gluten free) for similar recipes.

Pinot Noir, Riesling, and Sparkling rosé are great choices for Salsa Verde. Acidic white wines like riesling or low-tannin reds like pinot noir can work well with Mexican dishes. Sparkling rosé is a safe pairing too. The David Bruce Russian River Pinot Noir with a 4 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 30 dollars per bottle.

David Bruce Russian River Pinot Noir

Sour cherries, ripe white cherries, sage and white pepper with a hint of angelica. An earthy mineral and graphite flavor joins the dry raspberry and plum notes, giving this a savory edge.

Tips

Health Tips

  • 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).

  • Although the body needs salt to survive, most of us get too much. The problem with consuming too much salt (what chemists call "sodium chloride") is actually the sodium part, which is why people concerned about high blood pressure go on low-sodium diets. If you are trying to reduce salt in your diet, you can try salt substitutes like potassium chloride or try to make do with less salt by using more black pepper, herbs, and spices.

  • Sea salt is not healthier than table salt, contrary to what you may have heard. Sea salt is usually 97.5% sodium chloride (same as regular old table salt) and the minerals accounting for the rest are too insignificant to make a difference?unless you plan on consuming sea salt by the pound, in which case the health benefits from the minerals will definitely be outweighed by the negative effects of all the sodium you are consuming!

Price Tips

  • Sea salt can add a unique texture or provide bursts of salty goodness, but ONLY when it isn't being dissolved. So if you have expensive sea salt, save it for sprinkling on salads or dark chocolate cookies, don't try to use it in your pasta sauce or soup. Once sea salt dissolves, the flavor is indistinguishable from table salt from the shaker (after all, they are chemically the same thing, sodium chloride).

Cooking Tips

  • Here's a trick for peeling garlic quickly. Put the garlic clove on your cutting board. Take a knife with a thick blade and place the blade flat across the garlic clove (the clove should be closer to the handle than the middle of the blade). Whack down on the flat side of the blade with your free hand to smoosh the garlic a bit. Done correctly, the skin will peel right off.

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