Easy-Breezy 10 Ingredient (or Less!) Recipes

Have you ever looked at a recipe and thought, “Man, that’s a lot of ingredients”? We have, too. And so has Rach! 

Lucky for all of us cooks out there who want to make something delicious but may be short on time or cash, we have options. Cue: Rachael to the rescue! Get to browsing her 10 ingredient (yes, just 10!) recipes that are sure to put that overwhelming, “yikes that’s a lot” feeling to rest.

Note: Pantry staples (like salt, garlic, etc.) aren’t typically considered “ingredients” – we hope you already have them at home!

Sometimes a fluffy bun is not the answer. Rach makes this burger extra easy to eat by flattening the whole sammie. And with only 8 ingredients total (including a few pantry staples), it’s a winner when it comes to easy breezy recipes.

Yes, cheese and bread is a meal (and it is delicious)! Do as Rach does, and simply serve it with flatbreads, crackers, or charred toast.

If steamed broccoli is your go-to side, it’s time to get your green on with some broccoli rabe. Sometimes, working with a new veggie may be a little intimidating, but with only 8 ingredients, it’s really worth giving it a shot (we promise, it’s really not that bad!).

We love this for big get-togethers or parties. If your crew likes a nice sausage sammie, this dish is it. You’ll also have some quality time to mingle and chat – what we think is the best part about entertaining.

Warning: vampires cannot eat this dish! Three full bulbs of garlic make this spaghetti one of a kind! And we’ve counted – just seven ingredients.

Deep-Dish Eggplant Parmigiana

All the deliciousness of a traditional eggplant parm, but lighter (no breading!) No crumbs means less time in the kitchen, so we consider this one a win-win.

Aloha Nachos

Why hello there, gorgeous, heaping platter of nachos! Simply prep the toppings, layer ’em on the chips, then bake in a hot oven. Easy, quick, and darn delicious.
