It's cheaper and healthier to eat in but all too easy to look in the fridge and think you have nothing to make. SuperCook tells you what you can make with what you have.
SuperCook allows you to enter in the contents of your kitchen—it assumes you have basics like salt and pepper—and then cranks out a list of potential recipes you can make using just what you have or with the addition of another item. You can have SuperCook focus on a particular item in your list, if you're hungry for a chicken dish you can click on chicken on the list and SuperCook will show recipes featuring chicken first. Check out the video below for more features:
SuperCook goes beyond just telling you what you can make with what you have on hand by generating shopping lists for future groceries that maximise the crossover between what you have and what you need to buy to create even more delicious recipes (though this feature is rather more US-centric). SuperCook is a free service with no sign up required. Signing up for a free account however does allow you to save your list for future recipe searches. If you have your own trick for determining what you can make with the food you have on hand, sound off in the comments below.
