the not quite chef

it's a messy kitchen

Instant-dessert: the five-ingredient tart

If there’s one thing you should know about me, it’s that I can be pretty lazy.

Sometimes I make eggs for dinner because I don’t feel like cooking. Sometimes I eat dry cereal for dinner because I’m out of almond milk and even eggs seems like a process. I’m the queen of lazy meals.

So give me five ingredients, 5 minutes of prep time, and call it dessert? Sold.

Five-Ingredient Tart (via Iowa Girl Eats)
2 beaten eggs
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup flour
3 cups fruit (chopped rhubarb, blueberries, etc.)
1 frozen pie shell

Whisk first three ingredients together until well blended. Add fruit and mix until combined. Pour into the pie shell and bake at 350 degrees for 60 minutes or until set.

The original recipe makes it with only rhubarb, which is how I originally found this – my uncle had given me some fresh rhubarb from his garden and I had no idea what to do with it. But then I didn’t have enough rhubarb for this recipe, so I just threw in a bunch of blueberries I had in the fridge, and it worked out just fine!
