Easy 30-Minute Recipes: 115+ Meals and Snacks in 30 Minutes or Less

Looking for easy recipes to make at home? Don’t have hours to spend preparing a meal or snack?

When you have a busy night, or a lazy night, or you’re simply-on-the-go like a travelling foodie, you normally don’t have hours to make lunch or dinner, but that doesn’t mean you can’t cook a nice meal or snack in a short amount of time!

I admit when I started running Travelling Foodie full-time, I found that my time staying at home became so dedicated to catching up on work that I ended up neglecting the kitchen.

After making the recipe for Prosciutto and Cheese Cupcakes and having situations that forced me to stay at home, these rekindled my enjoyment for cooking and using the kitchen more.

Since meals are subjective, I tried to have something for everyone here.

Here are 115+ easy and quick 30-minute recipes for you to try!
