20 Healthy Dinner Ideas That You Can Make in 15 Minutes

Eating healthy is getting more and more important now. However, the only problem is that we don’t have any time to prepare a decent meal.

This is the main reason for us to make use of microwave meals, fast food meals and other 2-minute packages.

This is actually quite easy to do and especially when you have your own family to maintain of and still need to do tons of work.

This I unfortunately experienced myself.

While I was busy with other stuff and getting all these kinds of junk food inside of me, I also very often took a coke or a soda along the food I ate, for the sake of it.

Why?

It just felt good to me. It seemed like a good combination to me. Fast-food and Soda.

The reasons?

I was busy and I had tons of stuff to do, so I couldn’t go to work out and I didn’t cook at all at home.

Because cooking is so dreadful when you don’t have any time, you need to do the groceries, prepare the food, cook and do the dishes.

After a while I felt that my mood fluctuated a lot and also that my energy was weak at some moments and high right after eating.

So that was the moment I decided this all had to change.

I was eager to find a solution and implement a new style of cooking. One that is very healthy and yet very easy to make.

Vegan Mac and Cheese

By Marianne Schwartz | Recipes

Vegan Mac and Cheese

This is probably not the healthiest choice around but it sure is healthy and it is vegan.

Instead of cheese we will use with nutritional yeast flakes. This will be our replacement of cheese and thus won’t make this dish very heavy.

Even though cheese contains a lot of healthy elements, though too much of it can make you very fatty.

You can buy nutritional yeast flakes at your local health stores or online.

When you open the package, it may look like sawdust, but be assured that you can make a lot of healthy recipes with this.

Do I got your attention now?

Great, let’s get started with our Mac and Cheese

What do you need for a serving for 4 persons?

If you are with two, you can put the half of it in the fridge for another day.

  • Vegetable milk 1 cup (8.45 oz +/-)
  • 3/4 cup nutritional yeast flakes

  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric / turmeric
  • pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 2 tbsp tahini
  • 1 tsp miso (optional)

  3. Drain the pasta and add the sauce to the pasta in the pan in which you have cooked the pasta in. Let this boil together a bit and continue to stir well.
  4. Your mac ‘n cheese is ready when a thick sauce begins to form. (You can always add a bit of water.)

Mexican Chili and Guacamole

By Marianne Schwartz | Recipes

Mexican Chili and Guacamole

I have always been a fan of Mexican food for several reasons.

First, I love the country. Haha no but Mexican food is really simple, healthy and it will not hurt your wallet.

There is a lot of variation in the Mexican cuisine. So for this one I chose Chili with Fresh Guacamole.

It’s easy and quick to make, really so fast proof.

Often we associate food that can be made very fast with unhealthy food. But that is not the case with this recipe.

It is a recipe that you can make in a very short time and ideal for all kinds of weather.

This recipe is for two large servings of Mexican Chili and Guacamole

What do you need?

  • 1 onion (chopped)
  • 2 cloves garlic (chopped mini)
  • 1 half paprika
  • 1/2 tablespoon cumin
  • One half tablespoon dried coriander
  • One half tablespoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon chipotlepowder (difficult to get, sometimes you get it at a specialty store, but you can replace it with cayenne powder)
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 can kidney beans (not sauce!)
  • One half cup corn
  • 1 can (135 oz) tomatoe purée
  • salt to taste (according to your own preference)
  • fresh coriander
  • Natural bag of tortilla chips (preferably from the health food store)
  • 2 avocados
  • One half lemon
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt

What should you do?

  1. Sauté the onion for about 8 minutes in a pan.
  2. Next, add all the spices, garlic and pepper (diced) add a small amount of water.
  3. Add after a minute add all other ingredients. Please note that for the tomato purée you need a little mash in the pan.
  4. Boil for 10 minutes. (Meanwhile, make the guacamole)
  5. Serve onto plates and serve with guacamole, fresh coriander and tortilla chips.

How to make the guacamole:

  1. Peel and remove the pit of the avocados and place them in a food processor.
  2. Press half a lemon above the avocados and add 1 teaspoon garlic salt.
  3. Run the food processor until it becomes smooth.
  4. I love the Guacamole and you can put a bit aside for another day to eat with tortilla chips!

Vegan Pita Sandwich with Tzatziki

By Marianne Schwartz | Recipes

Vegan Pita Sandwich with Tzatziki

Currently we eat a lot of meat: hamburgers, steak, taco’s you name it.

Sometimes for me personally I just want to eat no meat, which by itself is also good for your body.

On the other hand, I also don’t want to complicate the cooking process for myself, so I like to keep it simple.

If you also have this same thing, then you would love the following recipe. Vegan ‘Gyros’ with tzatziki.

You can eat this sandwich every week without getting bored.

Pita sandwiches don’t cost a lot and you can fill them with a lot of low-budget ingredients according to your own taste.

The most expensive product would be the natural soy yogurt, but you only need the half of it, so you can use the other half for something else.

Just to be clear we are not using gyros in this recipe, we will use kidney beans, onion and grilled paprika, something that will give you the very Greek feeling.

After eating this, you will convince yourself that you don’t need meat for everything.

What do you need for your Vegan Pita Sandwich with Tzatziki?

For the tzatziki:

  • 250 ml natural (unsweetened!) Soy yogurt
  • the juice of half a lemon
  • a small clove of garlic
  • 1 cucumber (grated)
  • pinch of salt
  • dried dill to taste
  • 1 large onion
  • 1 can of kidney beans
  • bell pepper according to your taste
  • pita breads (we use whole-wheat buns)
  • raw vegetables, such as spinach, lettuce, grated carrot, pickle (or anything else that you encounter in the fridge)

What should you do?

Bake First, according to the directions on the package, the pita breads –

  1. Mix the soy yogurt, lemon juice, garlic, dill and salt well.
  2. Grate the cucumber and press (with your hands) the moisture out. The ‘dry’ cucumber that remains, mix it with the soy yogurt.
  3. Cut the onion into thin half moons. Fry with oil in a frying pan.
  4. Add the kidney beans (without water) and fry. Add paprika according to your own taste.
  5. Fill the buns with bean mixture and add tzatziki as much as you want.

Portobello Burger

Portobello Burger

By Marianne Schwartz | Recipes

Portobello Burger

Portobello Burger

A portobello burger sounds upscale and seems therefore more difficult than it is though!

So what is a portobello, it is actually a large brown mushroom.

Marinate the portobello (instead of the burger), grill it and then stack the bun like you do regularly.

I really wanted to give the meat flavor to the burger, so that you will not notice a lot of difference.

This worked very well using meat herbs (works every time).

It really seems like you eat a special luxury meat burger! It is a perfect sandwich if you want to eat a hamburger or lighter if you’re vegetarian. I like to serve it with a  salad.

This is how I do it

Make the portobello and cut the stalks out.

Place in a shallow dish and pour two tablespoons red wine and two tbsp balsamic vinegar over it with a tbsp fresh rosemary and a little meat seasoning.

Let that marinate for half an hour. Then cut the buns.

Heat a grill pan with oil, add the portobello and turn it  every five minutes for about 20 minutes.

Add in the last five minutes cheese and let it melt altogether.

Grill the bread rolls in a toaster or on the grill for a few minutes or you get a crispy layer.
Put a few (washed) spinach leaves on the bun, then place the portobello out and finally get some sliced ​​tomatoes. That’s all!

One-Pan Pasta With Mushrooms and Spinach

By Marianne Schwartz | Recipes

One-pan pasta with mushrooms and Spinach

With the previous recipe, I already explained why I am such a big fan of these recipes.

Literally, you throw everything into one pot and dinner is served. I love this kind of easy meals; on days that I actually do not have time to cook, I can still quickly something healthy on the table.

One-pan Pasta with Mushrooms and Spinach (3-4 people)

  • 1 vegetable stock cube
  • 150g mushrooms (cleaned)
  • 400 ml water
  • 200g linguine (or other pasta)
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 2 cloves finely chopped garlic (optional, depending on whether garlic is in the cream cheese)
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • two large hands spinach
  • 100g cream cheese (I used light Boursin)
  • pepper
  • salt

So how do you make it?

Dissolve the vegetable stock cube in 400ml boiling water.

Meanwhile, cut the mushrooms into thin slices.

Pour the vegetable stock into a large saucepan and add the pasta, oil, mushrooms, garlic, Oregano and thyme. Bring to the boil. Then leave on low heat for 5-10 minutes or cook until the pasta is tender.

Meanwhile, stir regularly in the pan so that the ingredients can not stick to the bottom. If the pasta is too big for the pan (and it did not come under water fast enough during cooking), break the pasta in half.

I do this mostly out of convenience right away so I did not have to worry more to it.

Meanwhile wash the spinach. When the pasta is ready, add the spinach and stir about 1 minute with.
Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the cream cheese through. Season to your own taste with salt and pepper
