The Aldi US website divides its recipes by dish type, including appetizers, sides, main dishes and kid-friendly recipes. Within these categories, users can choose main food items or types, such as potatoes, pasta, seafood and casseroles.
Each dish type includes distinct categories, making it easier to sort through similar items. For example, users can quickly find side dish pastas without sorting through a list of main pasta dishes. The site also includes sections for desserts, beverages, featured and seasonal recipes. Each recipe features a high-quality picture that shows how the dish looks when prepared, giving users a preview and goal for their own dishes.
The recipe pages have a sidebar with ingredients, including amount and any preparations necessary, such as dicing potatoes or juicing lemons beforehand. This ingredients list is divided into sections when necessary, such as when a dish also has a sauce or dressing. The recipe page includes detailed step-by-step instructions that are easy to follow and lists where the recipe originated. Preparation, cook and total time are listed for each recipe, as is the yield. Some recipes use volume for yield, while others list the number of servings. Some recipes also offer basic nutritional information, such as calories and carbohydrates.
