The BIG List of 5-Ingredient Meals

Updated January 29, 2020
You’re just five ingredients (or fewer!) away from ringing the dinner bell.

We get it: Life is busy, and on top of the (many) claims on your spare time, it seems like it’s always trying to break your budget, too. So let us help make dinner the easiest part of your day with recipe ideas that are easy, fuss-free and finished in five ingredients, max. They can help you control costs at the grocery store, too, because shorter ingredient lists = shorter receipts.

We even broke down our top-rated easy family dinner ideas into categories by protein (+ meatless!) so you can grab what you have on hand in the fridge or freezer and use this guide and find a satisfying meal you can put on the table in no time. (It’s like the “choose your own adventure” of dinnertime—fun!)
