Cooking is hard. Not only that, but it takes a lot of time and energy to make a good meal. However, there are some cheat codes when it comes to making yourself some tasty food. In fact, there are plenty of meals that you can make using only three ingredients. Here are some examples, straight from Reddit.
u/moneybot13 asked: What is the best three ingredient meal?
Black beans, rice, and one topping of choice. Always delicious.
I do salsa and maybe some cheese. Eat it with corn chips.
The best meal.Giphy
Take a standard sized tumbler, add a splash of whiskey, then fill it the rest of the way up with whiskey. I call it "a big glass of whiskey".
Sorry, never mind. More whiskey.
Hey, that's cheating.
I can make a fantastic pizza by combining just cheese, tomatoes, and a fully prepared pizza.
Tortilla, sauce, mozz cheese. It won't be great because theres no seasoning but it'll be pretty solid.
Buffalo mozzarella, tomatoes, basil.
I just learned that buffalo mozzarella is from buffalos.
Wait 'till you hear about their wings.
Both excellent choices.Giphy
Pasta, butter, grated Parmesan cheese.
Pasta, olive oil, garlic.
There's a lot you can do with eggs.
Eggs, salt, and pepper.
Fried egg, white rice, and soy sauce is pretty great.
A universal favorite.Giphy
I'm in the US and poutine is on my bucket list of foods to try! I feel like it wouldn't be the same if I just made it myself...
Love a good Spam.
Rice, Spam, eggs.
Yeah Filipinos know: rice, sunny side egg, (any salty protein).
Spam, bacon, sausage, dried fish, hot dog even.
That sounds so good.
Cacio e pepe. Trust me man. Super easy and absolutely delicious. You only need spaghetti, pecorino (you can use parmesan) and black pepper. Thank me later!
Sriracha is good on everything.Giphy
Toast, poached egg and a drizzle of sriracha mayo.
If you're allowed to branch out, add some sliced avo and some crumbled Danish feta.
That actually sounds amazing.
Baguette, brie cheese & jalapeños.
Box of cake mix, 1/2 a cup vegetable oil, 2 eggs. Makes "cake box cookies" that taste just like your favorite cake. My favourite cookies!
My mouth is watering.Giphy
Slightly more than 3 ingredients but...
Take some potatoes and cut them into quarters long ways. Then cut then into about 1/4 inch thick slices.
Sautee an onion in oil of your choice with garlic.
Add a little more oil, enough to cover the potatoes but not too much. Add potatoes and turn heat down to just above half.
Cover the shit out of them with salt and pepper, stir every 30 seconds to a minute adding more salt and pepper each time. Make sure to cover the potatoes in the stuff every time you stir them.
After cooking for about 20 minutes, or until desired softness, serve.
It's a family recipe. German fried potatoes. Wonderful side dish for any meal.
Udon noodles, tin of tuna and hot sauce.
My go to quick meal.
