Cooking dinner without a recipe: what you need in your kitchen

Posted: Updated:

MADISON (WKOW) -- You don't have to have a recipe to come up with a great dinner every night.

Chef Joel Olson from Hemmachef says if you keep a few staples in your kitchen, you can cook something great on short notice.

To make a complete entree, Chef Olson says you'll need to have on hand: a meat/protein, a sauce, a starch, and a vegetable. He says it's also important to have oils, vinegars and spices in your pantry.

He explains more in the video above on how those staples can help you make a great meal without a recipe.
