Your Recipe Contest: Week 1 Winners

Here are all 'Your Recipes' that earned the highest number of votes this week.

LF Team

The long, lazy days of summer are a great time to share delicious delicacies with friends and family. But wouldn’t it be even better if you could share your favourites with millions of other foodies out there? While sharing food may not be possible during quarantine, you can certainly share the recipe. LF recently turned this thought into “Your Recipe Contest” – a contest that not only lets you share your recipe with our 3.2-million strong community but also stand a chance to win exciting prizes (conditions apply).

The first week saw more than 60 entries and boy, are we overwhelmed! Some shared their recipe because they love it, a few did because it turned out to be a successful #firstattempt and others, simply because they are proud for it.

Count down through the recipes that were voted as the top 10 this week by LF users.
