Whether you're out, it's not available, or it's not healthy, sometimes what you need for a recipe is... something else! Read on for ingredient substitutions.
I've used over 10 websites to find ingredient substitutions, but I think these two are the best:
What do I Substitute for... from Barry Farm Foods
The Cook's Thesaurus from FoodSubs
While looking for substitutions over the last few months, I've found that they're not all about replacing forgotten or unavailable ingredients. Substituting applesauce or mushed bananas for part of the fat in a recipe is one my favorite healthy substitions. Find even more at these sites:
Light Substitutions from AllRecipes
Healthy Substitutions from MayoClinic
What are your favorite ingredient substitutions? Do you do 'em to be frugal, healthy, or something else?
