SNAP AN INGREDIENT for recipe inspiration
Allrecipes and Snapchat have teamed up to help you find recipes using ingredients you already have on hand. Just open Snapchat, scan an ingredient, and you’ll get up to five recipes that use it. The app’s Food Scan feature recognizes more than 1,000 ingredients—such as eggs, bananas, and bread—and pulls up relevant recipes, as well as info about the ingredient. At the moment, Food Scan works best with unpacked ingredients (eggs outside the carton, for example). It may not recognize some packaged products, but Snapchat is regularly enhancing the tool. And in the meantime, you’ve got a new way to dream up uses for those leftover ingredients in your pantry and fridge.
