We suggest recipes based on ingredients you’re already shopping for. When you select a recipe, you can easily shop all ingredients.

Shopping for recipes

When viewing items, like chicken or spaghetti, you can browse Related recipes for more ideas. Or, browse recipes by cuisine by going to the My Recipes tab of your account. If you find a recipe you like, you can buy the ingredients or favorite it for later. 

In the shoppable ingredient list, you can uncheck the circle next to any items you don’t want or need. You can also substitute any item in the recipe based on your preferences by selecting View alternatives under the item and choose another item that works better.

If a recipe ingredient is out of stock, select a replacement preference during checkout or after placing your order (before Instacart assigns a shopper). 

You can also shop recipes from New York Times Cooking. From the Instacart app or website homepage, click the New York Times recipe to view the preparation instructions and easily add items to your cart. Learn more about Instacart+ and New York Times Cooking partnership.
