Have you ever started making a recipe and realized you were out of a needed ingredient? Or maybe you wanted to try a new recipe but didn’t want to buy an ingredient you won’t use again? There’s no need to run to the grocery store to get that missing ingredient! Luckily, there are many ingredient substitutions you can make with items you already have right in your kitchen.
This graphic from HowToCook.recipes provides 40 ingredient substitutions for cooking and baking. For instance, did you know you could substitute lemon juice or white wine for vinegar in some recipes? You also substitute apple sauce for oil when baking to lighten up a recipe. There are also many substitutes for when you run out of eggs, like mayonnaise and mashed banana. While some substitutions may not be right for every recipe, there is usually a clever substitution for whatever ingredient or spice you may be missing.
