Are you constantly searching for super-fast weeknight dinners that are easy to make but still delicious and healthy? Well, the search can end with us, because our Easiest Meals Collection is all you need to put simple yet satisfying meals on the table in just 10 to 25 minutes.

If you feel burned out, need easy dinner recipes for beginners, or really just want something super fast to have in your back pocket for any busy week, we are excited to have you try our Easiest Meals Collection. The 25 recipes in this collection are simpler than what is found in our regular meal plan and will lift the pressure of home-cooked dinners right off your shoulders.

Imagine coming home from a long day at work and whipping up our Taco Fried Rice in just a few minutes using leftover rice you cooked for a dinner earlier in the week. 

Every one of these easy meals you make at home will cost less than takeout and will help you spend less time sitting in your car. Plus, just like our regular meal plan recipes, they all have original, vegetarian, gluten-free, and paleo versions!

Here is a peek at some of the quick dinner recipes in our Easiest Meals Collection:

  • Weeknight-Friendly Chicken Tender Parmesan
  • Fish Stick Tacos with Guacamole
  • Hard-Boiled Egg & Veggie Ramen
  • Simple Naan Pizza with Salad
  • Spinach and Avocado Veggie Melts 

And just because the meals are fast, doesn’t mean they can’t feel fancy, too! These super-fast weeknight dinners will impress even the most distinguished of guests:

  • Lemon-Garlic Shrimp & Broccoli Penne
  • Asparagus & Edamame Soba Noodles
  • Smoked Salmon Toast

If you are just starting on your cooking journey, you’re in the right place! These super-fast recipes are completely accessible for beginners (we even have how-to video links in our recipes!) and will help you gain your footing before transitioning into our regular weekly meal plan menus. If you are used to making the recipes in our meal plan service but could really benefit from a stash of easy meals to fill out busy weeks or bring quick variety to your lunches, our Easiest Meals Collection will give you that, too.

Sign up for a free 14-day trial of our meal plan service to start enjoying the practical magic of always having quick dinner recipes for the week.
