How do I protect my recipe?

How do I protect my recipe?

Sorry, a basic recipe cannot be copyrighted.

“A mere listing of ingredients is not protected under copyright law. However, where a recipe or formula is accompanied by substantial literary expression in the form of an explanation or directions, or when there is a collection of recipes as in a cookbook, there may be a basis for copyright protection.”
