Search for Recipes by Ingredients

Recipe Puppy API

Recipe Puppy has a very simple API. This api lets you search through recipe puppy database of over a million recipes by keyword and/or by search query. We only ask that you link back to Recipe Puppy and let me know if you are going to perform more than 1,000 requests a day.

The api is accessible at

For example:,garlic&q=omelet&p=3

Optional Parameters:
i : comma delimited ingredients
q : normal search query
p : page
format=xml : if you want xml instead of json

No parameters are required. Let me know if you have any questions or if you want to share the project built on top of our api.
