Our Fave Five-Ingredient Recipes

Anyone who loves to cook will no doubt know all about Jamie Oliver’s five-ingredient recipe books. Packed full of simple recipes with only a handful of ingredients, the books are loved up and down the UK. There are loads of recipes online, though, which feature just five things – and we’ve rounded up our favourite ones, each of which is perfect for summer. Read on…

Smoked Mackerel and Leek Hash with Horseradish

You can make this mackerel and leek hash in just 30 minutes and it can be served in a pan, which makes it a great choice on busy weeknights, says the BBC site. Containing new potatoes, leeks, peppered smoked mackerel, eggs and creamed horseradish, it’s a delicious meal that’s ideal for lazy summer evenings.

Pitta Pizza

A pizza on a pitta? You betcha! Plus, this one features just five ingredients – easy and tasty. It’s quicker than a takeaway but it’ll be just as delicious. Follow the recipe (link above) or substitute some of the ingredients for some of your favourites. Why not create a pizza-making station in your kitchen, adding different ingredients to bowls and letting everyone throw what they like on their pitta pizza?

You could have veggie options or choices just for meat eaters; you could even make a sweet pitta pizza, adding chocolate spread, sprinkles or whatever other sugary treats take your fancy.
