It’s been a couple of weeks since I’ve posted 5-Ingredient Mondays. In the free time I acquired by not posting I thought a lot about the purpose of 5-Ingredient Mondays and how the current guidelines match (or don’t match) the purpose. It’s a new year and I’ve decided to put a new spin on this weekly link-up party.
First of all I’ve updated the name. 5-Ingredient Mondays has been put to rest with 2013 and 2014 has given birth to MINIMAL Ingredient Mondays. The name change brings a change to the guidelines. No more counting your ingredient list to see if a recipe has less than 5 non-pantry staple ingredients. No more objective measure for if a recipe is suitable for this link-up or not. Nope, now it’s time for subjective linking-up. If you think your recipe is gluten and dairy-free and has minimal ingredients, link it up. Heck, if you’ve made a recipe with 15 ingredients but the recipe normally has 20+ ingredients, link it up! This link-up party is about celebrating gluten and dairy-free foods that are delicious and have minimal ingredients. Everyone defines minimal differently and I think that’s a good thing.
If you don’t remember the last time I posted a 5-Ingredient Monday post, there were definitely some yummy recipes linked-up. You can see all the submissions here and here are my favourites:
Low-Fat Chocolate Maca Cookies from Shugurcan
No-Bake Cranberry Jam Tarts from Coconut and Berries
Chunky Monkey Bites from Spiced Curiosity
This week I’m submitting my Apple Crisp:
There’s my submission to Minimal Ingredient Mondays, what will yours be this week?
Please review the following guidelines before linking up:
- Recipes should contain a minimal amount of ingredients. Remember, minimal is however you define it. Your recipe may have few ingredients or it may have less ingredients than it’s more traditional counterpart. Your recipe may even have a decent size list of ingredients but most of them are kitchen staples. All of the above are welcome!
- Recipe must be gluten and dairy-free. Bonus for recipes that are also plant-based.
- Lastly, please leave a link to your own recipe that goes to that week’s Minimal Ingredient Monday post, not on this static page.
Your recipes don’t need to be from this week, but it does need to be your own recipe. I will sometimes share photos of the recipes with links back to your blog, so by sharing your recipe, you are giving me permission to use your photo and link back to your recipe.
