We know that cooking healthy meals at home can often be time-consuming, so we're always looking for ways to make it easier to stay on track. Sometimes that means taking a few shortcuts, and other times that means getting our shopping list together and scheduling a big meal prep day. But other times, nothing seems to click and we just need to make dinner now.
In those times, we turn to simple weeknight recipes like the five below. And if these don't work, well, you can always have a waffle for dinner.
Is this a cop-out? Maybe, or maybe not. Regardless of your feelings on how much of an actual recipe "toast" can be, it is hands-down one of the easiest ways to make dinner. And when you use KNOW Better Slices to build your toast, you know your dinner will be superfood-packed. Each Slice is hearty enough to hold up to just about any topping you throw at it — so from avocado and pepper to eggs and sugar-free bacon, the sky's the limit with our toast.
If toast is the easiest recipe on this list, this meatball recipe is probably the most challenging — but that doesn't mean it's hard, especially when you take a shortcut with the sauce. Besides that, all you need to pull it off is ground meat (we like chicken), a few sautéed veggies, a bit of cheese, and KNOW Better Bread Mix. The result is a hearty, healthy dinner that kids and adults alike can agree on.
Craving a burger but don't feel like firing up the grill? We feel you. This ultra-easy indoor turkey burger recipe is prepared entirely under the broiler, and takes less than 20 minutes. It's one of our favorite main dishes to serve on KNOW Better Buns, and you can dress it up or dress it down as much as you'd like.
This ultra-easy stovetop macaroni and cheese requires just a teensy bit more effort than the pre-packaged junk from the grocery store, but is made with real ingredients and zero grains. All you need is cheddar cheese, cream, a few spices and a box of KNOW Better Pasta. Want to jazz it up a bit? Top your mac with freshly grated Parmesan. Want more color? Add steamed frozen peas before serving. Or add a bit of spice by topping your bowl with your favorite hot sauce.
Ready to get a little bit crazier with your burger? Turn it into a shrimp burger that's packed with spicy and herbaceous ingredients like jalapeños, cilantro and Sriracha sauce. Not only are they grain- and gluten-free, they're also dairy-free and perfect for you and all of your pescatarian friends. These are great on a KNOW Better Bun, of course, but also served simply on top of a bed of salad greens.
