It has become a fact of life: not only are citizens all over the world being encouraged to stay indoors, they’re also being confronted with a new reality of shopping and cooking. Many ingredients have become unavailable and people are turning to shelf-stable goods to make up meals and snacks. But there are some upsides to our expanding time indoors. Working from home also means that more consumers are passing the time trying new recipes – especially if they have low ingredient lists and are easy to make. We’ve compiled a list of deliciously simple recipes that will not only inspire you, but will make you feel like you’re still eating good while saving time, effort and money!

If you don’t have authentic labneh on hand, grab a container of sour cream, greek yogurt, or even a dairy-free spread and plate it. Drizzle on your favorite chili oil and top with finely-chopped chives or scallions. And there’s no more perfect-a-pairing than with our Sweet Chili Riceworks!
