Playing with food substitutions

You want to cook a special meal, but discover that you don’t have all the ingredients you need — what do you do? Not to worry! Part of the fun of cooking is getting creative with food. Here are some easy substitutions to try.

Salad dressing
Vinegar is a common ingredient in salad dressing. If you don’t have any at home, try using lemon juice instead!

Bread crumbs
Bread crumbs are used for breading everything from fish sticks to chicken fingers. Don’t have any? Crushed crackers are a great substitute.

Tomato sauce
If you really want to make homemade pizza but don’t have any tomato sauce, mix together 1 cup tomato paste with 1 cup water — instant pizza sauce!

Cinnamon
Cinnamon is a popular spice used in a lot of baked goods, but nutmeg can be used in its place just as well!

Ketchup
You’ve just made fries and you’re all out of your favourite red condiment. Here’s a trick: mix together 1 cup tomato sauce with 1 tsp of vinegar and 1 tbsp of sugar to make homemade ketchup.
