Exciting announcement! Stonesoup is becoming a teenager on the 27th December, so I thought it was time to make a few changes to celebrate…

I’ve updated the tag line of my little blog.

Rather than just ‘5-Ingredient Recipes’, Stonesoup is now focusing on ‘Simple Weeknight Dinners‘.

In many ways it’s still the same.

I’ve always been all about simplicity, I’ve just decided to expand how I define ‘simple’.

Instead of only limiting the number of ingredients, Stonesoup recipes must now meet one or more of the following criteria:

  • 5-Ingredients
  • One Pot
  • 3-Steps
  • 30-Minutes or less

While I’ve been keeping the ingredients numbers, equipment and time to a minimum for years, the ‘3-Steps’ idea is a new one.

It came from a great chat with Emma, one of my playgroup friends, who told me she always looks at how many steps there are before choosing to cook a particular recipe.

Another way to define simple. Brilliant!

So to kick off this new era for Stonesoup, here are my 7 favourite 3-Step Dinners…
