Ever find yourself missing a crucial ingredient after you started to cook or bake? Or maybe, you want to adjust a recipe to your preference. This page is a handy cheat sheet for all kinds of common ingredient substitutions so you can still make the recipe when you don't have the right ingredients!
Pro Tip: To find the ingredient you're looking for in a jiffy, Ctrl + F the name of the ingredient!
- Recognize that most of these substitutes are the "next best thing" but for some swaps (say, fresh basil), they're not going to provide the perfect substitution of both flavor and texture.
- Substitutions, like the original ingredients, are a matter of preference. So bookmark the page, and if you don't like a substitute you tried, try a different one next time!
