It’s 7pm, you’re starving, and you’re in no mood for that recipe you were planning to make that requires 40 minutes and 3 pans. (Been there!) No worries—here are some lightning-fast, super-simple meals to get you fed on the double.
Just like the sesame noodles you order in, but healthier and faster. We love this lick-your-fingers-good sauce on zoodles, but any veg or regular noodle works.
Flavorful roasted salmon, on the table in less than 15 minutes? Yes, please. Roast an extra piece and turn it into a hearty salad the next day.
This tasty recipe calls for Italian seasoning, but you can use any seasoning blend you have on hand, and change up the vegetables to suit what’s in your crisper.
So much faster and tastier than takeout, this dish (from Clean Plates Collective member Maria Marlowe) is creamy and satisfying thanks to a healthy shot of coconut milk. Try it over cauliflower rice for even more veggie goodness.
Three of our favorite foods—shrimp, mango and avocado—come together in this pretty and tasty dish. It’s on the table in less than 30 minutes, including making the yummy jalapeno aioli that you drizzle on top.
A sure-fire crowd-pleaser that’s simple to make, so luscious, and only uses one skillet, so cleanup is easy—yes, this one’s a winner. Plus, you’re 25 minutes from “Hmm, what should I make for dinner?” to eating.
Sheet pan meals are awesome for weeknights, and we love a steak dinner any time, so it’s no wonder this is a favorite. Whip up a quick garlic butter to drizzle over the whole thing to make it even yummier.
We love a fancy-feeling meal that’s actually a breeze to pull together, and this fits that bill. Bonus: Scallops are loaded with iron and calcium.
Sweet, smoky, savory—this dish hits all the notes, and it’s ready in 25 minutes. Try an ancho or chipotle chili powder for even more of a kick. Don’t forget to serve your fave taco toppings.
Eggs are the ultimate quick-and-easy protein. They definitely take on a dinner vibe with these hearty sandwiches. Make ‘em on sourdough for a gut-healthy twist.
