15 Minute Healthy Recipes You Need To Try

I love food but I swear it takes me 5 hours to make a dish and only 5 minutes to eat it all. I find balancing the time I spend cooking with the time I want to spend cooking hard to maintain so to keep myself from ordering out every night, I try and find recipes that are healthy to eat but also quick to make. So if you are like me here are ten healthy recipes that are going to save you time in the kitchen but help keep you healthy as well.

1. Quick & Easy Burritos

All you need for this is a tortilla, beans, vegetables, meat, or rice. The only thing you really have to have is the tortilla because you can’t make the burrito without it- but everything else is up to you, so if you don’t like something skip it. All you have to do is lay down the filling on the tortilla, roll it up, and enjoy.

Tip: Heat up the tortilla in the microwave for ten seconds with a wet paper towel laying on top for a fresher, less-stale tortilla.

2. Whole Wheat Pasta with Vegetables

This is a really simple recipe and it’s really economical as well. For this recipe you use frozen vegetables and boil them with the pasta for the entire cook time. Then you top the pasta and vegetables of with a tablespoon of butter, ¼ – ½ cup of cheese, and any leftover meats you have. This is a really quick and easy recipe that you can make many different ways.
