After a long day, often the last thing you want to do is cook.  As much as I love cooking, I am so aware of the time constraints everyone is under, especially during the holiday season. I definitely have evenings where I order in takeout or eat popcorn or cereal for dinner, but this shouldn’t be the norm!

Trust me when I say that I know what it’s like to have a day where it feels like the life has been knocked out of you. I remember when I used to work 14-hour days on film sets regularly. I realized that this was not how I wanted my life to be. While I do still put in long hours (especially between basically two jobs), it isn’t anything like those grueling film days. Whether it’s stress from work, a fight with a friend, or just plain exhaustion, there are so many things that can make you feel #overit. That’s where quick dinner recipes come in. Somedays, as tired as I might be, I know that cooking will make me feel better at the end of the day (that said, I never felt like cooking at the end of a 14-hour day). I feel like if you’re here, reading this blog, then maybe you fall into the same category? Do you find cooking to be somewhat therapeutic?

One pan wonders are my favourite kind of quick dinner recipe. Toss everything together in one pan, throw it in the oven, and there is nothing left to worry about. You can pour yourself a glass of wine and turn on the TV and relax. Or open a good book, or read your favourite blog, or write your own blog, however you choose to unwind at the end of the day. Before you know it, dinner is ready. You could even be super proactive and prep all the veggies over the weekend — chop the cauliflower, brussels sprouts and carrots and store them in the fridge until you’re ready to cook this fast and healthy dinner recipe. I feel like this is a really great option if you like to spend your weekends cooking for the week ahead. You could chop everything up on a Sunday and cook it on Wednesday!

I just like to eat this as is for dinner, but you could definitely whip up a quick side dish to go along with it.

Pair this with

Bell pepper rice or spiced couscous

Another great this about this recipe? It can be easily scaled down, so say you aren’t cooking for four people, (which I know many of you aren’t), you can easily just halve the amounts of ingredients in here and you’ll have enough for two meals and probably a few extra veggies.
