Recipe Ingredient Search & Leftovers

Don’t know what to make for dinner with the food in your pantry at home?  Here are some recipe search engines that can help.  Just enter in the ingredients that you have on hand and these sites will give you recipes to make using what you already have!

Allrecipes – ingredient search allows you to do an ingredient search with the items you want, the items you don’t want, and additional keywords. 

Cookin’ With Google allows you to provide a list of ingredients (what’s in the fridge?) and get back a list of recipes that Google finds for you.
Right now Cookin’ with Google will find you recipes in several different categories, including:

  • General
  • Vegan/Vegetarian
  • Weight Watchers
  • WorldWide Cuisine
  • Atkins Diet
  • Diabetic
  • Seafood
  • Crockpot

With Google base recipe search you can search by ingredient, occasion, cuisine, preparation time, and more!

Use RecipeMatcher to “find delicious recipes based on ingredients and groceries you have at home.”

Supercook is a new recipe search engine that finds recipes you can make with only the ingredients you have at home.” 

Once you’ve found a recipe using one of the above search engines and need to figure out what to do with the leftovers, you can go to
Leftover Wizard.

At Leftover Wizard you simply choose up to 3 ingredients or flavors and it will give you a search of over 160,000 recipes.

If you are using up items you already have on hand, you will be saving money and avoiding food waste.   Bon Appétit!
