How do I add one recipe to another recipe? DCYukon — Oct 12, 2017 07:36AM PDT

For example, I cooked a whole bunch of mung beans and created a recipe for that with all of the relevant ingredients. I carefully measured out the final cooked product into 100 gram portions. Now I am creating a recipe for stuffed winter squash. One of the ingredients will be some of those 100 gram portions of the mung beans I previously cooked. But my recipes don’t show up as a possible ingredient when I create the recipe for stuffed winter squash. How do I add them without (in effect) having to input my mung bean recipe twice? The other public options don’t work as a decent substitute for what I previously cooked (also, many of them are unclear as to whether they are for cooked or raw products).

I call bullshit on this. That I cannot use part of a batch of whatever I've prepared to make a different recipe is a deal-breaker for me. I will stop trying to use this terrible program. Heretofore I was on the edge, what with many ingredients NOT offering a mass unit. This bit here, though, demonstrates that MFP is a joke and not to be taken seriously.

I have to agree. I had leftover stuffed portobello mushrooms and wanted to add that to a recipe I made this morning of a veggie medley for breakfast. You have to change that because I work a lot with recipes I've created.
