These Are The Easiest Weeknight Dinner Ideas

When it comes to weeknight meals, we tend to stick to one simple rule — the faster (and easier!) the better. In fact, that's exactly the kind of thinking that tends to land us in a Deliveroo rut. We were determined to find some ridiculously effortless recipes that we can whip up whenever, so we turned to three-ingredient dinners.

That's right, to make each of the dishes, you'll only need 3 main ingredients. (You'll also need salt, pepper, and olive oil, but we're assuming everyone already has those pantry staples on hand.) Each meal also includes a couple of optional flavour-building ingredients that you may already have in your kitchen to make them even tastier.

Check out all four recipes ahead, and get cooking!
