Easy Dinner Recipes

Quick Burritos

Burritos are your best bet for a quick weekday dinner.  On your way home from work, stop and grab a pack of tortillas, sour cream, avocado and a rotisserie chicken.

In a bowl, create a mixture of grated cheese, some leftover veggies (bell peppers, avocados and carrots work well), some spices and leftover shredded chicken (or rotisserie chicken). Place it in the centre of a tortilla, roll it, and toast it on both sides with a little drizzle of olive oil.


10 Minute Sloppy Joes

Got a meat lover in you? Sloppy joes can be a great dinner option for you if you’ve got ground beef or turkey ready! A sloppy Joe is all the taste of a burger but without the hassle of preparing them!

Start by sauteing some chopped onions and garlic in a pan until soft, and adding in the ground meat with some spices and tomato sauce, and cooking it on high with the lid on until cooked. Remove from heat, add in some mustard and mix well. Spoon this mixture on one side of a sliced bun, and serve hot!


Easy Veggie Pasta

Got frozen veggies? A simple pasta could turn out to be a great dinner option for you to whip up! Make this meal healthier by swapping regular pasta for multigrain or whole wheat pasta!

Boil the pasta and on the side, saute the veggies in some olive oil. Add some spices, tomato ketchup and grated cheese. Drain the pasta, and mix it with the veggie mixture. That’s it!

Broccoli & Cheese Soup

You know how great broccoli is for you, but let’s face it- loving it is harder than you’d like. Give this easy soup a try and you’ll be surprised at how delicious this green veggie can be. Start by boiling broccoli florets with a few cloves of garlic until soft and tender. Pulse it with a stick blender until smooth, add in some stock (or just water) to loosen the mixture, grated cheese and season with your favorite spices!

Bread Pizzas

We’ve saved the best for last! There’s nothing like some crusty hot pizza for dinner right? And it doesn’t even have to be takeaway! All you need is some bread- any kind works- even the regular sliced bread. Simply spread a little tomato based sauce (store-bought or homemade) over the bread, layer it with any leftover veggies that you might have (onions, bell peppers) and other ingredients like sliced olives and jalapenos. Top it with some cheese (or skip this one if you’re watching your weight), sprinkle some dried oregano over the top and pop it in the oven for a few minutes!
