Forks Over Knives Review

An app that makes cooking easy and healthy? Thank Forks for that!

If you’re in the mood for a dirty burger then keep walking, because Forks Over Knives is designed with your nutritional well-being in mind. The app features over 130 sumptuous dishes comprising of whole-food, plant-based recipes from over 20 leading chefs that are updated weekly and are easy to prepare to ensure that you never have to pass by the good stuff in favour of an artery-clogging quick fix.

The main menu is dedicated to recipes; simply scroll through the sections, pick a category, including Pasta & Noodles, Soups & Stews and Baked & Stuffed, and then swipe down through the recipe lists when you spot one that gets you salivating. You will then see a summary page that is penned by the chef responsible and features info such as the size of the serving and the time it takes to prepare. Tabs at the top of the screen will then take you to the required ingredients list and the all-important method for preparing the dish.

The really useful thing about the ingredients list is that you can add the items on it that don’t currently reside in your cupboards to an in-app shopping list. This list can then be accessed via the icon at the bottom of the interface for easy referral when you’re at the supermarket.

When you come to prepare the dish, not only is each recipe broken down into easy steps, you can also tap on a step to view the ingredients you are working with for that specific step. It’s a simple feature that makes following recipes much easier. You can also share recipes and add them as favourites with a single tap and even see the recipes that have proved most popular with the Forks Over Knives community at large. So whatever your ability in the kitchen, this app provides plenty of inspiration and simple steps to help you rustle up something a bit tasty.

    I really love this app. I’ve been a vegetarian since 2007 and still enjoy finding new recipes. The convenience this app offers is a big part of the appeal—haven’t found one similar (at least for veggies like me). When I go grocery shopping I can pick a recipe and get all the ingredients while I’m wondering around the store. The Mexican Chowder and Falafel sliders are great btw!
