 easy 3-ingredient recipes

(to try this weekend!)

We’ve all been there before. The pre-grocery run days, when the fridge is stocked with veggies, 

leftovers, and a random block of cheese. Luckily, we found a few mouthwatering recipes, 

which prove that a lack of ingredients don’t mean a compromise on taste. See for yourself.
