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behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research.

Tips

Health Tips

  • If you're allergic to peanuts or nuts, you can substitute sunflower butter for nut butters in many recipes.

  • Many people will tell you to remove the skin on your chicken to cut down on fat. This is true, but if you like the taste, leave it on! You're only gaining a little fat for a lot of flavor. Plus, a little over half of the fat in chicken skin is monounsatured fat (that's a heart-healthy kind) and the notion that saturated fat is unhealthy is being questioned too. So in our opinion: dig in, skin and all!

  • Some bouillon/stock products contain gluten, some don't. If you are following a gluten-free diet, always read product labels carefully.

  • Read the labels when buying peanut butter. To choose the healthiest peanut butter, look for a brand without too much added fat, sugar, or salt. If you buy a natural brand that requires extra stirring due to oil separation, store the jar upside down or on its side to make the task a little easier.

Price Tips

  • If you find meat (especially grassfed and/or organic meat!) on sale, stock up and freeze it. Ground meat will stay good 3-4 months, while steaks, chops, etc., will be fine for at least 4 months.

Cooking Tips

  • Store brown sugar in an air-tight container to avoid hardening. If your brown sugar still gets too hard to use, you can use one of these techniques to soften it.

  • To keep your eyes from stinging and watering while cutting onions, trying popping the onion in the freezer for 15 minutes before you plan to start cooking. Chilling the onion slows the release of the enzyme responsible for teary eyes.

  • 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.

  • If a recipe doesn't specify whether you should use light brown sugar or dark brown sugar, just use whatever you have on hand or prefer. The difference is that dark brown sugar has more molasses and thus a stronger flavor.

Green Tips

  • Choose pasture-raised chicken if it is available. If it is not at your supermarket, visit a farmers' market and ask around.

  • Bell peppers are unfortunately on the "dirty dozen" list compiled by the Environmental Working Group (EWG). You might want to buy them organic when you can.
