Have you been cooking at home more since the coronavirus pandemic started? Nutrition.gov’s new Recipe page can help you prepare nutritious meals that support health and taste great.

With recipes from federal and Cooperative Extension sites, this curated resource offers a variety of healthy recipes from trusted sources all in one place. Plus, Nutrition.gov’s recipe library continues to grow with new recipes being added regularly.

Get fresh recipe ideas to spice up your cooking routine while staying at home. Here are four reasons to check out our Recipe page before heading into the kitchen:

  1. Find easy and healthy recipes. Trying to find dinner ideas? Select our “Dinner” search option to narrow down your choices. If you are short on time, try searching recipes by “30 minutes or less” to find this Chinese Vegetable Stir Fry dish and more. You can also search by food group or ingredients.
  2. Explore new or popular recipes. Every month, we are highlighting three ‘Recipes of the Month’ to share ideas of what you can cook using trending ingredients, like this refreshing Breakfast Smoothie. Find these recipes on our Recipe homepage and on Twitter.
  3. Get ideas for preparing seasonal foods. Click on “What’s in Season” to find a list of recipes highlighting the flavors of the season. Right now, view summer recipes like Confetti Yogurt Pops and Sunshine Roll-Ups.
  4. Find kid-approved recipes that the whole family will enjoy. Check out our kid-friendly, simple recipes with common ingredients that are more familiar to kids. With tasty recipes like Crunchy Chicken Nuggets and Apple Nachos, you may even be able to get helping hands in the kitchen!
