Whether it’s because of food allergies, limited ingredients from the store, or simply because you don’t like a certain food, we’re all looking for new ways to make recipes. For the Kitchen Compromises Speed Challenge, we want to see all the practical and creative ways you make your meals when there is just an ingredient you can’t use.

Show off your recipes (a talk about your substitutions or how you made something without a normally essential ingredient) for a chance to win an Amazon Gift Card.

The Kitchen Compromises Speed Challenge is closed.
