When you don’t have an ingredient, dashing down to the local shop isn’t always very desirable after a long day at work.
Or, if you have an allergy to a particular ingredient, simply “holding your nose” isn’t an option.
Thus, I’ve compiled this list to help you overcome either of these issues.
Listed below are some common ingredients and their acceptable substitutes (work on the assumption that the measurements are the same).
Butter: substitute with…olive oil, vegetable oil, margarine, or grape seed oil
Corn starch: substitute with…flour
Flour: substitute with…almond meal, walnut meal, rice flour
Wheat: substitute with…rice flour, corn flour
Chicken: substitute with…tofu, fish, turkey
Minced beef: substitute with…minced chicken, minced turkey, minced buffalo (unlikely in Australia), minced kangaroo (unlikely anywhere but Australia)
Peanut butter: substitute with…almond butter, soy butter
Milk: substitute with…soy milk, rice milk
