How to Adjust Recipe Servings on Gatheredtable (It’s Quick and Easy!)

A common use of Gatheredtable is change the number of servings on a recipe to make it work for your specific household needs. We know how important this is, and we’ve made it as easy as possible to do – either on a recipe on your menu or on a recipe you’ve already saved to your personal library.

Here’s how it works…

Serving Adjust

  • When you view any recipe on gatheredtable.com, you’ll see the number of servings under the recipe image, with up and down arrows to scale the servings up or down. (Note: this feature is not yet available on the mobile apps)
  • Use the arrows to change a recipe from 6 servings to 4 and you’ll see a notification that it’s recalculating the ingredients.
  • When it’s done, ingredients that changed will be colored blue. Just click “Save” to confirm the changes.
  • If it’s not your recipe (like if it’s a Gatheredtable recipe, or from someone else’s library), you’ll now have a copy of your own version of the updated recipe in your personal recipe library.
  • And of course, if the recipe is already on your planner we’ll automatically swap out the old version with the new serving version.

Pro-tip: If you want to change the number of servings listed on a recipe without changing the ingredient quantities, just click the button to edit the recipe and change the number of servings there.
