Are you like me? Were you raised with some bizarre 1950s concept that says dinner should be a casserole or other main dish you’ve prepped for two hours straight, a salad, and a side of rice or pasta? Try as I might to really embrace the quick-food culture, I still feel like I’m doing something wrong if I don’t make a full-blown meal nightly, one from a cookbook, one with an ingredient list the length of my arm.
Turns out, dinner doesn’t have to be a finicky affair. These twelve 3-ingredient recipes will show you just how simple, fresh, and surprising dinner-making can be. Click through, be amazed, then grab a recipe for tonight, and tomorrow night, and the night after that. Because your “dinner making must take lots of time” philosophy is about to be tossed by the wayside.
