How to stop a site from copying content

Last Modified: 2016-01-11
I have a friend who has a recipe blog and she has very unique recipes that are very popular. It seems Yummly.com has indexed them and is showing them on their site. They are clever in that they are only showing the ingredients list and then have a link to her site for the method.

I am wondering if anyone knows specifically how they do this? Do they have some sort of crawler? I wonder if they are storing the ingredients in their database, or they pull it from her site for every request? If anyone knows how this can be blocked that would be great!
