Five Healthy One-Pan Dinner Recipes To Try

Mar 6, 2019

March is National Nutrition Month, and to kick it off, we’re rounding up some of our favorite one-pan healthy dinners you can make at home with ease. All you need is a sheet-pan, an oven and an appetite for a tasty and inspired meal, which will have you in the kitchen for minimal time.

The one-pan meal is nothing new, but it’s coming back with a vengeance as we’re all seeking ways to save time on cleaning dishes and avoid the hassle of watching multiple pots cook. If you’ve never tried a one-pan or sheet-pan meal before, it’s just as easy as it sounds. You prep your protein, chop up some veggies, then add them all to a pan with seasonings, pop it in the oven, and that’s it.

  1. One-Pan Superfood Baked Salmon — Not only colorful, but also Paleo-friendly, this recipe is ready in just 20 minutes. Featuring wild-caught salmon, Brussels sprouts, blueberries, lemon juice, garlic, basil and a few spices, it’s full of antioxidants, omega 3 fatty acids, immune-boosting micronutrients and more. And yes, it only requires one pan. Get the recipe here:

  2. One-Pan Healthy Shrimp Fajita Bowls — If you’re interested in flavor, this one-pan recipe is sure to deliver, with chili powder, cumin, smoked paprika, black pepper and garlic powder as some of the spices you’ll add to the shrimp, cauliflower rice and veggies. You can’t have fajitas without bell peppers, and that’s great, because bell peppers are a nutritional powerhouse, providing more than your daily requirement of vitamin C, valuable iron (to prevent anemia), potassium and much more.
