One of the biggest obstacles to cooking at home is time. I hear this often from my AnneTheRD nutrition clients – they want to eat healthier, but don’t have the time to make it happen. Luckily, I’m all about making healthy eating easy and approachable, because I don’t want to spend hours in the kitchen any more than you do. :)
As such, I thought it would be helpful to round up a handful of my very best really quick and easy dinner recipes all in one post for future reference. Here are 7 of my easiest dinner recipes, perfect for even your busiest weeknight!
This one-pot meal couldn’t get any quicker! Just saute cubed chicken (or tofu!), then add the rest of the ingredients and simmer for a few minutes and serve over 90-second brown rice. A healthy, flavorful, veggie-filled dinner in 15 minutes flat? Sign me up!
Encrusting something in almonds automatically feels super fancy, right? Well, this Almond Encrusted Tilapia also happens to be one of my easiest recipes. And the string beans are a great no-recipe recipe that you can add on to just about any meal!
With a little help from a food processor, these veggie burgers come together in no time! Plus, baking the veggie burgers means dinner is on the table in 20 minutes without the hassle of watching and flipping.
This is one of my favorite new recipes to make for weeknight dinners. You can whisk together the sauce while the salmon is baking! This one is a good one to impress guests, too. :)
Pre-cooked rotisserie chicken makes this soup so fast to put together! Once the veggies are chopped and sauteed, all that’s left is to simmer the soup for a few minutes and serve a yummy Thai-inspired dinner.
This is one of my all-time favorite blog recipes. If you thought fish wasn’t an option for weeknights – think again. Pre-made pesto sauce brings tons of flavor with no effort, and all you have to do is throw everything on a pan and set a timer! (See also: my new favorite Sheet Pan Asian Salmon with Veggies for another variation!)
I know what you’re thinking – “Lasagna?! That’s not quick and easy!” But hear me out here, folks – this isn’t your typical lasagna. Tortillas instead of noodles means no pre-cooking, and there’s no need to slave over slow-cooked sauce all day! Just shred up rotisserie chicken to layer with salsa, beans, and other quick fillings for a Mexican-inspired meal in minutes.
