Don’t want a grocery list that’s a mile long? Better yet, you might even be able to skip a trip to the grocery store altogether!
I have collected some delicious 5 ingredient recipes, most of which are items and supplies that you probably already have in your pantry.
From breakfast to dinner to a late night treat, I know you’ll be able to find something delicious you can easily whip up.
Tips for these Recipes
Be sure to read the recipe notes. Many of these recipes include variations and substitutions that you can use. For example, you might come across a recipe for beef tacos, but instead of using ground beef you could easily substitute it with pork or chicken.
Or maybe you have ingredients to make rice krispie treats, expect for a box of rice krispies. Just use different cereal such as chex mix or lucky charms. Be creative with the supplies that you have and I think you’ll find that you can make more recipes than you thought.
The posts also have other helpful tips and storage information. I especially love when a recipe can be frozen for later. Since you’re already making the dish, it’s super cost and time efficient to double the recipe and have a meal for another day.
Note: I do want to note that in some recipes there may be more than 5 ingredients listed. Either the extra ingredients are optional and are not required in making a completed dish, or they are basic kitchen staples like salt and oil.
