Top 8 Heart Healthy Dinner Recipes Made Under 15 Minutes

1. 15-Minute Pesto Shrimp

  • This versatile and quick pesto shrimp can be served alongside a hunk of crusty bread, over pasta or rice, or even used as a topping for pizza.
  • Look for shrimp that are free from preservatives, which can alter the texture and add sodium to the dish.
  • We like the brightness and fresh flavor of refrigerated pesto, but a homemade classic basil pesto will make the dish extra special.

2. Kale Salad with Quinoa & Chicken

  • Toss the cooked chicken into this healthy salad recipe while it’s still warm to lightly wilt the kale, making it softer and easier to eat.
  • Using store-bought salad dressing saves time, but you could also make your own tangy vinaigrette.

3. Linguine with Creamy White Clam Sauce

  • Ripe tomato and fresh basil give this quick recipe tons of flavor.
  • Serve this healthy pasta dinner with crusty garlic bread and steamed green beans.

4. Chickpea & Quinoa Grain Bowl

  • It seems grain bowls have as many variations as there are stars in the sky, and there is no wrong way to build one!
  • But we prefer to keep things classic and simple with hummus, quinoa, avocado and loads of veggies!

5. Roasted Vegetable & Black Bean Tacos

  • These hearty vegan tacos are quick and easy to make, perfect for busy weeknights.
  • They are so tasty no one will miss the meat or dairy.

6. Avocado Tuna Salad

  • Jazz up a can of tuna with this easy avocado tuna salad recipe.
  • Silky avocado adds creaminess that’s cut with a hit of acidity from lemon and a briny punch from feta cheese. Romaine hearts and cucumber offer refreshing crunch.

7. Salt & Pepper Shrimp with Snow Peas

  • In China, salt and pepper shrimp is traditionally made with tongue-numbing Sichuan peppercorns.
  • If you have some in the pantry, feel free to use them here; we opted for a combo of easier-to-find white and black pepper. The white pepper adds earthy flavor, while black kicks up the heat.

8. Mixed Greens with Lentils & Sliced Apple

  • This salad with lentils, feta and apple is a satisfying vegetarian entree to whip together for lunch.
  • To save time, swap in drained canned lentils–just make sure to look for low-sodium and give them a rinse before adding them to the salad.

9. Loaded Black Bean Nacho Soup

  • Jazz up a can of black bean soup with your favorite nacho toppings, such as cheese, avocado and fresh tomatoes.
  • A bit of smoked paprika adds a bold flavor kick, but you can swap in any warm spices you prefer, such as cumin or chili powder. Look for a soup that contains no more than 450 mg sodium per serving.
