Google search update adds recipe filters to help you make dinner tonight

googlesearch recipes

No idea what to make for dinner tonight? Google’s hoping to help with the latest feature addition to its search engine.

Now when you search for common recipes, Google will offer up extra criteria for your search. You can narrow down recipes by ingredients, calorie contents, and cook time. For instance, a search for Lasagne will bring up nutrition facts, and tapping More will pop up a list of ingredients. If you’re not too happy about the calorie content, however, you can filter the results so that Google only displays recipes under 100 calories a slice.

The feature works even with obscure foods, like vegan noodle soup. Try it out!
