The Dishometer is a visual way enabling you to see the style of each recipe, the way I judge it.
I use 6 measures for each recipe:
Taste: How tasty it is for me. 5 would be wow, 4 is nice. I doubt I’ll present any 3 or below here.
Nutrition: How much the ingredients are considered to be nutritious or healthy. Many of the recipes in this site would likely be 4 and above (due to whole food ingredients, fresh vegetables, no refined sugar, etc.), however sometime obviously, i’ll present recipes that are just plain tasty and have very little to do with health.
Cost: 5 would be a recipe that most of its ingredients are cheap (for example: oatmeal, bulgur, vegetables, etc.). 1 would be a recipe that’s made of mostly more expensive ingredients (like nuts and almonds, special pastes, special fours, etc.).
Impressive: 5 is a dish that is visually attractive. While I strive all my dishes to be so, to me, a layered cake is always more impressive than a simple soup, visually speaking.
Freezer Friendly: 5 is a dish that can freely be put in the freezer later defrosted and will be tasty as when fresh. I would not freeze a dish I rated less than 3.
Easy to make: 5 would be a super easy to make dish, something like mix some ingredients, then fry/cook/roast them.
A perfect dish in my mind would look like this:
I hope the Dishometer serves you right, by having you glance at a recipe and help you see if it answers the style you were looking for.
If you have any comments or improvement ideas I’ll be more than happy to hear them!
