With our master list of food substitutes, you can cook with this or that and fix any ingredient shortage that takes you by surprise like a pro.

Make Do or Do Without
We’re the kind of cooks who would much rather find a work around than miss out on something delicious. That’s why knowing what to substitute when you don’t have an ingredient called for in a recipe is so important — especially these days.
Listen for all the cooking and baking substitutes. You can also download our free, printable baking substitutes cheat sheet above, and subscribe to our newsletter to get the cooking substitutes version (which we’ll send the Friday after this episode publishes).
