10-Minute Delicious and Healthy Dinner Recipes For Tired Nights

Most of us have days wherein we feel exhausted and we lack creative inspiration for dinner. For me, I don’t want to use that as an excuse to eat anything (especially non-healthy options). So, what I do is I create dinners for this type of situation. I have a special 10-minute healthy dinner that I like to do on a rotation and it avoids adding stress to our already busy weeks.

I also make sure that I purchase my ingredients over the weekend and portion them out on a Sunday night. I find that it cuts a lot of time from my meal preparation throughout the week.

Kale & Mushroom Cauliflower Rice

This is very easy to make and it has liver-detoxifying enzymes. Not only that, but it’s brilliant for good skin, balanced hormones, and energy.

Ingredients:

  • 2 to 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ leek, chopped finely
  • ½ head cauliflower, pulsed into cauliflower rice (you can use store-bought cauliflower rice instead)
  • 250 grams (about 1 cup) button mushrooms, sliced
  • ½ bunch kale, chopped
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • chili flakes (optional)
  • fresh parsley, chopped, to garnish

Directions:

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a medium-size frying pan and heat over medium heat. Add the chopped leek and sauté until they turn translucent and golden.
  2. Add cauliflower rice and sauté for 2 to 3 minutes or until it starts to brown. Next, add the mushrooms and kale to the pan. Continue to sauté for another 4 to 5 minutes, or until the vegetables are cooked through. Season with salt, curry powder, the remaining olive oil, and chili flakes, if using.
  3. Plate up and garnish with fresh herbs, to serve.
