Keep it simple.

20 five-ingredient dinners the whole family will eat

Struggling to come up with fresh ideas for dinner?

Fed up of fighting with little people at meal times?

Want to keep cooking as simple as possible?

We hear you. Cooking for a family can be tricky and time-consuming, so here are some easy recipes to try out that all require just five ingredients or less.

Having kids prepare their own food can be a great way to get them to try new things so why not invite them to join in?

Just make sure you’re there to supervise, especially where there are high temperature or sharp implements involved.

Happy cooking!
