Ever feel overwhelmed by complicated recipes and long grocery lists? I think a lot of us do at one point or another. Several years ago, I wrote a couple of blog posts featuring some of my favorite recipes that call for 5 ingredients or less. It was a big hit! I often turn to recipes with just a few ingredients when I’m busy or haven’t been able to shop for a while…or sometimes just because I don’t feel like doing anything more complicated than I have to! I enjoy creating things in the kitchen, but I’m of the mind that cooking on weeknights shouldn’t be overwhelming. Cooking is fun, but it doesn’t have to include mile-long ingredient lists, either.
Since I wrote that Main Dishes that use five ingredients or less post, I’ve come up with quite a few more recipes that need just a few ingredients to make. In fact, when I updated the post I found at least 60 of them on here! I have to say, I still use these recipes regularly and my family always loves them.
So if you are looking for a fast, easy dinner option that doesn’t take many ingredients, check out the post and see what you think! I’d love to hear which ones are your favorites and if you have any go-to recipes that are simple like these that I could try out myself in the future!
