6 Delicious Recipes with 4 Ingredients (or Fewer)
Small ingredients list, big flavour. This is our round-up of our very best and most delicious 4-ingredient recipes - all made with pantry-friendly ingredients and easily adaptable to any topping, condiment and sauce you have on hand.
You only need 3 ingredients - flour, potatoes and salt - to make soft, light, pillowy gnocchi. They’re extremely simple (and if you ask us, kind of therapeutic) to make. We like to make a big batch and freeze half - so we have gnocchi at hand whenever we need a hug in food form.
Great bread can make a meal go from 6 to 10 in seconds. Our focaccia is the ideal co-pilot or starter for pretty much whatever you’re serving. All you need is flour, yeast, olive oil and salt and you’re good to go.
Cheesy Pasta Sauce
Dreams are made of this 4-ingredient cheesy sauce. Well, ours are at least. No vegan cheeses here, just miso, pepper and vegan butter which come together to make a ‘cacio e pepe’- like sauce. It tastes especially delicious with our vegan gnocchi, but pairs well with any and every pasta shape.
Flour, water and salt - it doesn’t get much simpler than that. Fresh pasta sounds tedious, but we’re here to let you know that it’s fool-proof, so satisfying to make, comes together in 30 minutes and makes every pasta sauce taste ten times better (scientifically proven by us).

Our lives got a lot better the moment we started making popcorn from scratch and since then we’ve never looked back. Homemade popcorn is delicious, cheap, only calls for 3 ingredients and is extremely easy. Head here to grab our recipe for cheesy popcorn.
