10 ingredients = 10 meals

Print Page Comments

You don’t need to have lots of expensive ingredients to make lots of different meals for your family. We picked 10 classic ingredients to show you how you can turn them into 10 different dinners!


You don’t always have to use all of the ingredients listed in a recipe – vegetables can be replaced by whatever you have, as can most meats and cheeses. And feel free to make additions of whatever you have in the house to give your meals a personal family twist. 


A simple tomato sauce is the basis of a lot of family meals and you don’t need lots of ingredients to make it either. Where the recipe calls for it, use our classic tomato sauce – all you really need is a tin of chopped tomatoes.

  • Sausages
