4 Dinners You Can Make with 5 Ingredients
There are few things worse than pulling up a recipe only to discover the ingredient section is longer than your current to-do list. That's why this month we're going to help you cut down on the time you'll spend in the kitchen with our five-ingredient dinner recipes. They're flavourful, healthy, and a few are even one-pot wonders—saving you time on clean up as well.
Using just a few fresh items, plus reliable pantry staples like olive oil, salt and pepper, and regular seasonings from the spice cabinet (we don't count these as one of the five ingredients) we're streamlining not just dinner, but your grocery budget, too.
This is one of those dishes that tastes good morning, noon and night, and makes a filling meal from humble ingredients. You can make this in advance, and store in the fridge, reheating wedges on a baking sheet in the oven. Get the recipe.
Hoisin Pork Lettuce Wraps
Quick to prepare and fun to eat, it's hard not to love a recipe that encourages your tablemates to make their own meal and eat with their hands. This one-pan, 5-ingredient sticky-sweet meat mixture takes less than 20 minutes to prepare and can even be served over rice instead of lettuce cups, if you prefer.
