I’m Italian-American, so I fancy myself a decent cook. My favorite meals include things I can throw together easily but seem like they take much more thought. You can’t go wrong with garlic, olive oil, parsley, red pepper flakes, al dente pasta, and grated parmesan cheese if you’re in a pinch. But even simple dishes can be hard to make during the current crisis, as grocery stores are often picked clean, and it’s human nature to load up for the week and forget that one important item you will not go back for.
Folks have been sharing their favorite cupboard recipes (and baking bread like nobody’s business) to help inspire some creativity in the kitchen during times when we might feel guilty about calling take-out or are all out of chicken breasts. After all, cooking doesn’t have to be stressful. It can actually be a great way to relax and spend some time focusing on yourself and your family instead of worrying about all the scary things that are happening. On Reddit, people have made it really easy by sharing three-ingredient recipes.
Here are some of the best three-ingredient recipes from Reddit users.
