30-Minute Meals

Delicious recipes for homemade fast food from your own kitchen


Chipotle Pork Soft Tacos by Robin Miller: Serve these juicy, tomato-based pork tenderloin fillings alongside Robin Miller's Black & Pink Beans with Rice for a satisfying Southwestern meal.

Chicken, Mushroom and Cashew Stir-Fry by Maryana Vollstedt: Keeping a few ingredients like hoisin sauce and peanut oil in your pantry allow Asian-inspired meals to enter your weeknight dinner rotation with ease. This version of cashew chicken adds more vegetables, including mushrooms and bell peppers, and is served with Asian noodles.

Beef Lettuce Wraps by Holly Clegg: Using crispy lettuce leaves instead of tortillas or wheat wraps cuts calories while providing a vehicle for delicious fillings like this mixture of ground sirloin, shredded veggies, peanuts and hoisin sauce.

Salmon with Honey-Soy Sauce by Debbie Gore: Portabello mushrooms in a white wine reduction make a sauce for the salmon fillet recipe that's worthy of a sit-down dinner party despite taking only half an hour to prepare. Serve with brown rice for a helping of whole grains.

Roasted Shrimp and Broccoli by Melissa Clark: This one-pan supper requires nothing more than tossing the ingredients with olive oil and seasonings. Roasting is an ideal technique for winter, deepening the flavors of almost any raw meat or vegetable while you take advantage of the hands-off process to take some time to relax.
