We know you don't have the time—or if you're like us, patience—to whip up a complicated meal at the end of the day. But before you turn to takeout or an underwhelming back-up recipe, know we've got your back with way better options. In fact, we've called for reinforcements: This week's featured foodie, Chungah Rhee of Damn Delicious, shares eight of her favorite ways to turn simple, fresh ingredients into incredible meals in 30 minutes or less.

10-Minute Cauliflower Rice

For a healthy and easy twist on takeout fried rice, use a cauliflower. We bet you can’t tell the difference.

BBQ Chicken Cobb Salad

Healthy, hearty, quick, and easy (with an incredibly creamy buttermilk ranch dressing), this chicken salad is a meal packed with flavor.

PF Chang’s Chicken Lettuce Wraps

A copycat dish that you can easily make right at home is just 20 minutes away. And it tastes a million times better than the restaurant version.

Zucchini Alfredo

Swapping zucchini noodles for pasta in this recipe is healthy, decadent, and creamy—plus, it's low carb.

Asian Steak Roll-Ups

With tons of veggies and an Asian marinade that's loaded with flavor, these roll-ups are super easy. Bonus: Everything can be prepped ahead of time.

Shrimp, Asparagus, and Zucchini Orzo Salad

Light, healthy, and nutritious, this shrimp and Orzo salad is tossed in a tasty lemon Dijon vinaigrette.

30-Minute Shrimp Fajitas

Making fajitas has never been easier: Simply wrap in foil and bake. Plus, cleanup is an absolute breeze.

Chicken Zoodle Soup

It's just like Mom’s chicken noodle soup, but made with zucchini noodles instead. Whip it up for a comforting and healthy dinner option.
