3 Last Minute Meals You Can Make Quickly

There’s nothing worse than getting home starving after a long day only to find that there is nothing to make quickly. In fact, it’s a recipe for unhealthy snacking or takeout. We’ve put together a list of four last-minute meals you can make quickly when you’re in a pinch.

Veggie Spring Rolls

Nothing is faster or simpler when you’re starving than a simple no-bake recipe. These veggie spring rolls will help you get in your daily vegetables and are a cinch to make. Even better, their accompanying peanut sauce is packed with protein that will help keep you feeling full for longer.

To make the rolls, combine green leaf lettuce, fresh basil, fresh mint, fresh cilantro, matchstick carrots, purple cabbage, red bell pepper, English cucumber, avocado, and salt and pepper in rice paper wrappers.

You’ll make the protein peanut sauce using natural unsweetened protein powder, creamy peanut butter, soy sauce, lime juice, brown sugar, and chili garlic sauce. Easy peasy!

Cauliflower Steak and Protein Romesco Sauce

If you’re craving a steak but prefer to skip the meat, this cauliflower steak and protein romesco sauce offers a quick and easy way to enjoy the flavor of the grill.

You’ll need natural unsweetened protein powder, a large head of cauliflower, roasted red peppers, raw almonds, crushed canned tomatoes, parsley, harissa paste, lemon, extra virgin olive oil, salt, pepper, and kalamata olives.

The best part? You can make extra protein romesco sauce and keep it in your refrigerator for up to a week, adding extra protein and flavor to your other meals without the work of making more sauce.

Butternut Squash Protein Pasta

If making butternut squash protein pasta at home doesn’t seem like a quick meal, prepare to be pleasantly surprised. Butternut squash might just be the flavor of fall right behind pumpkin spice, and the addition of butternut squash to your favorite pasta certainly adds depth and complexity to any dish.

To make this delicious pasta, combine roasted butternut squash with natural unsweetened protein powder, garlic, salt, coconut cream, pepper, vegetable broth, parmesan cheese, nutmeg, and parsley. Boil some fettuccine and top with the sauce to serve! The extra protein in the sauce has the added bonus of keeping you full for even longer.
