Dinner doesn’t have to be complicated — especially when you’re looking for quick and easy recipes to get you through the Monday-through-Friday dinner hustle. And even when dinner is made in a snap, it can still be satisfying and tasty. Here at The Daily Meal, we are all about providing simple recipes that can be made quickly during a busy weeknight, but that don’t lack flavor or variety. We’ve rounded up some of our favorite easy weeknight meals that can be made in less than 15 minutes.
All of these dishes can be made in less than 15 minutes — and that includes preparation and cook time. Check out our dinner ideas and see how simple (and fast) dinner can be. From seafood dishes like salmon teriyaki to shrimp curry, or a stovetop pizza recipe and black bean chicken wraps, dinner has never been easier — or tasted better.
To save more time, stop by the grocery store over the weekend and pick up the ingredients. When you get home, wash and chop the vegetables and store them in containers in the refrigerator. This way, most of the prep work is done beforehand. Another time saving tip is to plan your meals ahead of time. Try planning your meals out for the week, and use some of these recipes to get you started.
So, skip the takeout and frozen dinner entrées when you’re in a time-crunch and try some of these easy recipes that can be made in just minutes. A delicious dinner doesn’t have to take a ton of time. With just a simple recipe and a few minutes, dinner can be on the table.
