We are often unable to plan menus ahead, thus making poor and unhealthy choices of meals. Besides healthy, one may want menus in which ingredients harmonize and cover well the available ingredients in the pantry. In this paper, we propose a novel multi-objective-based recommender of menus that features an optimal balance between nutritional aspects, harmony and coverage of available ingredients. We conduct experiments on real-world and synthetic datasets and show that our approach achieves the desired levels of nutrients, harmonization and coverage of ingredients.
