One of my main aims for MyMiniMeals is to use as minimal set of ingredients as possible. Here are 10 of my favourite recipes starting with one with 1 ingredient then one with 2 ingredients and so on…….culminating in one with 10 ingredients. I hope you enjoy them and it goes to show that you really don’t need a long list of ingredients to make really delicious and nutritious meals.
I am wheat free so use quinoa a lot in my own cooking but I thought it would be interesting to see what I could use quinoa for when making my kids’ meals.

And hey presto my “Cauliflower Cheese Biscuits” were born! They are incredibly simple to make and are perfect for a snack on the go. The Boy wolfed down 3 in the space of 5 minutes and declared them “yummy” which in my eyes is a huge success!! Continue reading
