SALAD FOR DINNER
When you’re in a mood for a light but filling dinner. Try out one of these amazing salads.

Mediterranean orzo salad
SOUP FOR DINNER
There is nothing more comforting than a bowl of hot homemade soup. It’s the perfect end to a long day. And these four soups are ready in just 20 minutes.
This is a “cheat soup” that’s incredibly delicious and allows tons of room for variations. Recipe calls for canned veggies but I always use frozen ones since they are a much healthier option. Also you can omit the tomatoes and use coconut milk for a sweet and creamy, but still light soup.
Egg drop soup
Almost every cuisine has it’s variation of egg soup. And for many this soup brings fond childhood memories. This version is simple and delicious. If you like eggs to be soft and in bigger ribbons try drizzling beaten eggs in a circle and wait a few minutes before stirring.
Hot tomato soup with grilled cheese toast (this makes dinner less healthy but a lot more comforting) is one of my favorite quick dinners. But for a full on healthy version eat it with wholegrain bread and hummus.
This would be a lousy collection of dinner recipes if it would not include a curry recipe. Because curry is delicious, end of story. The flavors, creaminess and warmth are all everyone really crave for by the end of the day.
DINNER WITH TORTILLA
Once a week I like to wrap up the day with a good tortilla dinner. And these are the favorites.
Another great recipe coming from maxican cuisine. Quesadilla is a quick cheesy tortilla dish that is easily made healthy just by adding a bunch of veggies. Slathering tortilla with pesto before adding other ingredients was a revelation for me.
DINNER FEATURING BREAD
Level up your (boring ham and cheese) sandwich game with these three healthy alternatives. With veggies in a main role and lots of delicious flavors.
Egg salad sandwich
FISH FOR DINNER
Eat fish once a week for omega 3, they say. That will be no problem with these easy and tasty recipes.
Salmon with steamed asparagus
Light and fragrant dinner that is whipped up in no time. With a bit of multitasking you can have a healthy and delicious dinner on the table in just 20 minutes. Asparagus can be replaced with any other seasonal vegetable.
