Can’t decide what to eat?

Random.cooking is here to challenge and inspire you for your next meal. We give you a random shuffle of ingredients. Your creativity takes it from there.

Want to try again?

Not a problem. Shuffle again or fine-tune your selection by clicking through each ingredient category one by one. You can even adjust the settings to include only vegetarian options if you want — or to exclude those vegetarian options entirely!

There are no rules.

How you use the system is up to you. Just take inspiration to plan your next meal. You might decide to create a one-pot dish or maybe you’ll pair a main course and one or more sides. It’s your call! And of course you can add any additional ingredients to round things out.

A note to food bloggers:

This site is for you, too. Use it to come up with creative new ideas for your blog, and then come back and tell us what you’ve done. Use the contact form on any random shuffle page to tell us about your recipe or collection of recipes that matches that page’s criteria. We’ll be happy to add a link to your site!
