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?



Yum.

Black beans, rice, and one topping of choice. Always delicious.

LindsayMurray

I do salsa and maybe some cheese. Eat it with corn chips.

SamSondadjoke

The best meal.

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".

utche96

Unless you consume the tumbler you're going to need a third ingredient.

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.

Driver_goon

Tortilla, sauce, mozz cheese. It won't be great because theres no seasoning but it'll be pretty solid.

Me--Not--I

Nice.

Buffalo mozzarella, tomatoes, basil.

donthinktoohard

I just learned that buffalo mozzarella is from buffalos.

CreationStepper

Wait 'till you hear about their wings.

Jay180

Both excellent choices.

Giphy

Pasta, butter, grated Parmesan cheese.

DareWright

Pasta, olive oil, garlic.

Jet-Streem

There's a lot you can do with eggs.

Eggs, salt, and pepper.

inflammable

Fried egg, white rice, and soy sauce is pretty great.

PINKDAYZEES

Tasty.

  1. Onions
  2. Pepper
  3. Meat
Needs salt.

A universal favorite.

Giphy

Poutine!

cdncutie79

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...

catmom2040

Love a good Spam.

Rice, Spam, eggs.

OMS6

Yeah Filipinos know: rice, sunny side egg, (any salty protein).

Spam, bacon, sausage, dried fish, hot dog even.

utflipmode

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!

FeministCriBaby

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.

DukeyPookey

That actually sounds amazing.

Baguette, brie cheese & jalapeños.

Blondette1221

Pure magic.

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!

ThriftAllDay

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.

LeviathanOfHell

Ooooooh.

Udon noodles, tin of tuna and hot sauce.

My go to quick meal.

Sometimes you only need to experience something once, to know it's a never again situation.

I always say, try everything once.

Well, now that I'm older, a caveat to that is... try it all within reason.

How many things have we all walked away from saying the one time experience will suffice?

In fact, knowing when to say no is one of life's wisest choices.

Redditor Croakied wanted to discuss the times we've all said... "once was enough!" They asked:

"What is one thing that you will NEVER do again?"

There is an age old question that has been getting more traction surrounding sex for partners the last decade or so.

And that is... "is just one enough?"

Were we really meant to only be with one person forever?

There are so many flavors to taste.

What if your partner wants more cookie dough with your strawberry?

Many of us sometimes fantasize about what we would do to our worst enemies, especially in the moments when they're actively making our lives worse.

While most of us would never actually do any of the things that we contemplate instead of screaming at that super annoying person at the office, we do get pretty creative with the ideas.

I grew up poor, and I remember the little things that made me smile when we just happened to have enough that week.

The little things that a truly rich person would not think twice about.

Ah, the luxury of it.

What spells luxury for you?

Redditor ConAir161057 wanted to compare notes about the things in life that feel like items only money can buy. They asked:

"For people who grew up with little money, what always felt like a luxury?"
