5 Delish Dinner Recipes That Take 15 Minutes or Less

Unless cooking dinner recipes brings you feelings of zen (in my case, pffft), you’d much rather spend your time on the whole living life thing. That being said, you don’t want to sacrifice the quality of your meal for the sake of getting out of the kitchen faster.

What you need are quick and easy recipes that don’t look quick and easy—quick as in less than 15 minutes to prepare, and easy as in… well, not hard.

Below are five dinner recipes that fit the bill, courtesy of Leanne Ely, nutritionist, bestselling author, and delish recipe extraordinaire. All are from her book, “Part-Time Paleo“, so you can enjoy an amazing meal without all the pesky prep:
