Making Do Around the Kitchen

I’ve been trying to space out my trips to the grocery store. Instead of running to buy something if I can’t find it in my pantry, I’m opting for substitutions.

Here are a few examples from around the kitchen:

1. Swapping ingredients

Instead of using eggs, I added applesauce to a baking recipe. Yes, you got me! It was banana bread, which is apparently the essential COVID comfort food: https://www.delish.com/food-news/a31931597/coronavirus-banana-bread-baking/

Also, since I ran out of green onions, I decided to use the onion tips I’ve been growing to add a little flavor to a main dish:

2. Ingredient transformation

Another thing I’ve been doing is changing the initial food to a different version of itself. For example, I didn’t have tortilla chips, but I did have tortillas. Voila!

3. Creating a food

But when I ran out of flour tortillas and couldn’t find all-purpose flour, what did I do? Used cassava flour to make them!

P.S. I didn’t realize how often I use chopsticks as serving utensils until now!

    Creative! And fearless! How much applesauce did you use in place of the egg? :)
