We appreciate good food and think you should be able to eat well even if trips to the store are limited. We've come up with recipes using things you might have in your pantry, freezer or refrigerator. Share your recipe successes, ideas, and photos on our facebook page or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
You might not have everything called for in a recipe. Sometimes, there are items that can be used instead. We've compiled a list to help you make the most of what you have on-hand.
Eggs - if you've run out of eggs, you still have lots of options if you want to bake.
All of these options replace 1 egg in a recipe:
• ¼ cup applesauce
• ¼ cup mashed banana
• ¼ cup plain or vanilla yogurt
• 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
• 3 tablespoons of aquafaba
(this is the liquid found in a can of chick peas and some other beans) use a hand mixer to whip into peaks before adding to your recipe
• 1 tsp baking soda + 1 TBS vinegar combine, then added to your recipe
Oatmeal - if a recipe calls for quick oats and all you have is regular oats, or even steel cut oats - you can still use those in your recipe.
Butter - can be replaced with about ¾ the amount of liquid oil, shortening, or equal amounts of coconut oil.
