This Is What Foodies Make When They're Low on Groceries

Sophie Miura

At the end of a long and stressful day at work, few things are worse than realizing you're low on groceries and need to drive to the store. We're not proud to say that when faced with the choice between eating the sad ingredients at the back of the fridge or grabbing takeout, we usually choose the latter—which isn't good for our wallets or our waistlines.

This is hardly a unique dilemma though, and thankfully, it's something that even foodies are familiar with. The difference between us and them? When faced with few ingredients in the fridge, they get creative and resourceful. Ahead we asked five talented recipe creators and food bloggers to share the "stretch meals" they make when they just can't muster the energy for a trip to the grocery store.

Peek inside your pantry and fridge: You can make at least one of these easy recipes with foods you already own.

What's your go-to "stretch meal"? Share your favorite recipe with us in the comment.
