The Rule of 5’s: Our Favorite Recipes with 5 Ingredients or 5-Minute Prep Times

Ever noticed a recipe and thought you’d love to make it,  only to discover it requires more ingredients than you even know existed or more prep time that you can give? We’ve all been there. And, in our experience, sometimes the old adage “less is more” rings true, particularly when you’re in the kitchen. 

The truth is, regardless of whether you’re a parent or student, you’re being pulled in hundreds of directions. Whatever the recipe sounded like, it just isn’t worth the time and energy. 

Therefore, we thought it was time to think of simple recipes that will make your life easier. We’re all busy people, and it’s time to regain our confidence in the kitchen while taking a little more time back for ourselves. 

We’ve pulled our favorite recipes that use only five ingredients (or less!) and take less than five minutes to prep. Ready to feast like a king and save time doing it? We thought so.
