Send us Your Recipes!

with 2 comments


Hello friends! We’d like to ask for your help with a special project: in.gredients is crowd-sourcing recipes from our family of followers to build an online recipe book that’ll be accessible to the community via our website. Our goal is to provide healthy, sustainable, and delicious recipes that use pure ingredients! Would you like to help? Do you have a great recipe you’d like to share? Here’s what to do:

1. Send us a recipe that uses pure ingredients*

2. Include a picture of the finished product

3. Indicate which season the recipe is best for (in terms of ingredients needed and desirability – i.e. pumpkin pie is best made in the fall; strawberries normally grow in the summer)

4. Include your full name and twitter handle (if you have one, so we can reference you).

*Pure ingredients are minimally processed, non-chemical, basic foods that can all be easily pronounced and understood by a fifth grader. Examples: fruit, veggies, eggs, flour, butter, grains, oil. Things that don’t qualify include artificial preservatives like maltodextrin and sodium nitrate, and artificial food dyes like “red 40,” etc.

Once you’re ready, you can submit your recipe. Please indicate in the subject line that you’d like to share a recipe! We’ll feature all recipe submissions that meet the above criteria in our online community recipe catalog, and when in season, we’ll feature your recipes on our blog!

Thank you in advance for your help in building a community of folks who can share the know-how of healthy, sustainable eating!

  1. Awesome! Do you just mean “whole foods” by “pure ingredients”? Or…something else?

    • Hi Alexandra,

      Thanks for asking! We’ve updated the post to include this definition of what we mean by “pure ingredients:”

      Pure ingredients are minimally processed, non-chemical, basic foods that can all be easily pronounced and understood by a fifth grader. Examples: fruit, veggies, eggs, flour, butter, grains, oil. Things that don’t qualify include artificial preservatives like maltodextrin and sodium nitrate, and artificial food dyes like “red 40,” etc.

      I hope this gives a better sense of what we mean!

      Cheers,

      Jessica Malsky
