Recipe Searching Thread Anonymous 07/25/2020 (Sat) 20:57:45 No. 150
How do you all find new recipes? I find it annoying to go out and buy ingredients if I want something to eat besides plain rice and frozen tendies, so I had the idea that surely there are ingredient search engines that return recipes, rather than vice versa. So far www.supercook.com seems the nicest out of the 3 I tried so far, it asks what foods you have and splits recipe results into a few categories. One of the ones it spat out is a recipe for some bean soup. Is there anything anon uses, like meal plans or recipe books?

I look up "____ instant pot simple recipe" in google
Discover a dish that seems interesting (most often through manga or other asian comics that go elbow deep in food porn), watch videos on how to prepare it, variations of it, the dish's origins, jot down recipe in the variant(s) that I think I may like. Alternately, perform mental inventory of my available ingredients, wait for an idea, then try it out.
>>151 This, I'll go with the simplest recipes first for something I've not cooked before, and gradually tweak it to my own liking as I go. Going with the simplest recipes, requiring the fewest ingredients while not sacrificing flavor, is a good way to get into more complex variations on the things you like. A lot of recipes can be daunting if there's too much shit to them, but a good amount of ingredients can be substituted or ommitted without sabotaging the dish.
I find it's helpful to be very specific about what you need. Unfortunately, a lot of recipes aimed at being "easy" will drop a lot of ingredients or methods that aren't common outside of specific regions, or they will just assume you want to use a certain method or ingredient. See how many "taco" recipes call for ground beef. Unless you're a white soccer mom this probably isn't your idea of a real taco. You end up having to specify the cut of meat and cooking method to get anything useful. I just wanted to see what kind of marinades people were using, but nobody marinades their ground beef. Generally I look to (((YouTube))) personalities for good starting recipes. If you ignore the e-celebs who just post clickbait spectacle food ("World's Biggest Hamburger!") then you will find some good bases that you can tweak, grab techniques from elsewhere, or customize.

Would this be a good thread for "reverse recipe searching"? Basically starting with a pic of a dish you've found and then everyone tries to pool together and come up with an ingredient list and process. I think that blue in the second pic is just blue dye but I have an idea of a more elegant way to achieve it thing is I'm not sure what the base dish is. Any ideas?
>>168 Looks like some kind of sour soup with seafood, the blue dye is most likely to simulate the ocean water.
>>168 Charcoal Hamburgers + cheese seems pretty straightforward if you're fine eating charcoal. I have never made a seafood soup. Not sure if there's anything special about it besides the dye.
>>177 >charcoal Hamburgers + cheese seems pretty straightforward if you're fine eating charcoal. I am. I've got a recipe for charcoal digestive biscuits somewhere that I've wanted to try for the longest time.

>>168 I could be wrong, but I think you posted a picture of the in game screenshot of the soup or the soup they showed off during an event. The photo of the soup on their website is a far less deep shade of blue. It looks more in line with this other soup that uses spirulina algae to turn its clear broth blue.
>>256 Does spirulina add any particular flavor to soups? I'm considering getting some and making some blue green noodles.
I tend toward authoritative recipes instead of those self-published by amateurs and home cooks, and lately I'm collecting cookbooks. My best acquisition so far is the first edition of the Larousse Gastronomique, so I can cook French dishes from classic French recipes in the original French.
>>280 Spirulina on its own tastes like seaweed. It can be pretty strong at two teaspoons, though I've never had it in soup myself.
