5 Healthy Meals You Can Make In Just 30 Minutes

 

The time for comfort food is over. And for once, I’m not complaining. It’s about time that the whole takeaway in bed with Netflix came to an end, and unfortunately, the weather isn’t cold enough to make that excuse anymore. So, I’m trying to give myself a little health kick, and experience different tastes! And for girls like us, who never have the time, I’ve compiled some very delicious, tempting meals we can all make in under thirty mins!

1.

 Vegan Red Pepper Pasta

@lazycatkitchen

Prep time: 5 minutes 

This super tasty vegan pasta recipe substitutes meat for cheese, peppers, and olives. With the addition of pine nuts and chili, you can make it as hot and as varied as you like. It’s a flexible, super fast recipe, perfect for making when you’ve just rushed through the door at the end of a stressful day. Find the recipe here.

 

2.

Pesto Cauliflower Rice

@asaucykitchen

Prep time: 10 minutes 

While this is technically called a ‘breakfast bowl’, I think this is perfect for dinner time. With cauliflower rice, kale pesto, avocado and an egg on top, you’re getting so many healthy foods plus some protein too. It’s the perfect mid-week dinner! Find the recipe here.

3.

Superfood bowl

@thevintagemixer

Prep time: Depends on the ingredients you use (20 min – 1 hour)

The prep time of this superfood bowl depends on the ingredients, if you’re cooking things like potatoes you’ll need to allow extra time, but if you want to keep it quick and simple you can throw together rice, chickpeas, cauliflower, kale and micro greens and miss out the sweet potato and other cooked options. It’s seriously easy and will keep you going for hours! Find the recipe here.

4.

Sicilian salmon

@bbc

Prep time: 20 minutes 

This beautiful salmon recipe is perfect if you need more omega in your diet. The salmon is dressed with olive oil and paprika, while the garlic mushrooms add a beautiful woody flavor to the plate. A dinner to impress that takes no time at all! Find the recipe here.

5.

Garlic Chicken With Tomato Sauce

@pinchofyum

Prep time: 30 minutes 

This chicken recipe goes lovely with pasta or mixed green vegetables, you can even grill some asparagus on the side for a light but yummy alternative. The sauce isn’t difficult at all, it contains tomatoes, basil, and olive oil. Yum! Find the recipe here.
