Thoughts
This is one of the best cookbooks I’ve seen in a while. I love that there are only 5 ingredients or less and just a few simple steps.

At the beginning of the book there is a list of abbreviations, conversions, and an introduction.

Then this quote which I love:
“One of the very nicest things about life is the way we must regularly stop whatever we are doing and devote our attention to eating”
Lucino Pavorotti

All the recipes sound good, but here are two that I want to start with:

Pineapple Salsa Chicken
Servings: 6

2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 16oz. jar of tomato salsa
1 20oz. can of pineapple chunks in 100% juice, juice reserved
3 medium zucchinis, diced

Place chicken in your slow cooker and pour the salsa over them

Cook on high for 4 hours or on low for 6 hours

Shred the chicken

Add in the pineapple with 3/4 cup of the canned juice and the zucchini

Cook for another 30 minutes

 

White Chicken Chili
Servings: 4-6

6 cups chicken broth
4 cups cooked and shredded chicken
2 15oz cans of great northern beans, drained and rinsed
2 cups salsa verde
1 tbsp ground cumin

Place all of the ingredients in a medium sausepan over medium high heat

Bring to a boil and then cover and reduce heat and simmer for 20 min.

Note: You could also do this in the slow cooker using raw chicken.
Cook for 4-6 hours on low and shred chicken before serving

Healthy Five Ingredient Recipes by Hannie P. Scott”

  1. After a long session, immersed in Ottolenghi’s rather complicated recipes, this would make a nice break 🙂

  2. This is my kind of recipe book. I dislike recipes with tons of ingredients. That white chicken chili sounds really good.

  3. Those two recipes look delicious. Sounds like a good book.

  4. I love easy recipes like that.

    • Me too Kathy. I cooked for a lot of people over the last 40 years and now that it’s just me and my son Anthony, the fewer ingredients and steps the better.

  5. This looks perfect for weeknight cooking during my really busy season (spring!). I really like white chili (and salsa verde), so I’ll have to give that a try.

  6. 5 ingredient recipes are so awesome! I cook Indian food most times and they always need so many ingredients.

  7. You had me at 5 ingredients 🙂 Going to look for this book!

  8. Both of these recipes sound delicious, I’m pinning them.

  9. These recipes sound really good and I like that they’re not a million ingredients but aren’t full of processed food either. I’ll have to look for this one.
