Healthy Dinner Recipes in 10 Minutes (or Less)

Not a lot of people believe me when I say creating a healthy meal in 10 minutes or less is possible. So I decided to put together these three recipes to show just how easy it can be.

In the same amount of time it would take you to sit through a drive-thru line, you can whip up these nutrient-dense, flavor-packed meals.

Stuffed sweet potatoes with a pea and avocado smash
Servings: 1-2

2 medium sweet potatoes
For the pea and avocado smash:

1 cup green peas
1 avocado
1-2 garlic cloves, chopped
1/4 cup red onion, chopped
~ 1 tbsp. olive oil
sea salt, black pepper, and chili flakes to taste

For the spiced chickpeas:

1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
~ 1 tbsp. avocado oil (or oil of choice)
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup red onion, chopped
~ 1 tsp. smoked paprika
1/2 tsp. cumin
1/4 tsp. cayenne
a pinch of chili flakes and salt to taste
For the maple tahini dressing:

4 tbsp. tahini
1 1/2 tbsp. maple syrup
1 1/2 tbsp. lemon juice
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tsp. apple cider vinegar
1 tsp. olive oil
sea salt and black pepper
Poke holes in your sweet potatoes and cook in the microwave for around 4-7 minutes, until tender.
For the chickpeas: In a small pot over medium heat, add your avocado oil, garlic, onion, and spices and cook for around 1-3 minutes. Next, add your chickpeas and cook for 5-10 minutes until you’re ready to serve.
For the pea and avocado smash: In a blender or food processor, add all your ingredients and blend/pulse until you’ve reached your desired consistency.
For the dressing: In a medium bowl, whisk together all the ingredients until thoroughly combined.
Cut open your cooked sweet potatoes, stuff with the pea and avocado smash and chickpeas, and then drizzle with the maple tahini dressing. Serve with any other vegetables if desired.
