What food can I make in 5 minutes?


If you’re looking for a quick and healthy meal, try one of these recipes. They are perfect if you need something to eat on the go or when you don’t have much time in the morning.

Avocado toast

How to make an avocado toast:

  • Slice the avocado in half and remove the pit (if you’re feeling extra healthy, throw that pit in a blender and make yourself some guacamole).
  • Top each piece of bread with a slice of avocado and sprinkle with salt, pepper, or cayenne pepper to taste.

Banana and peanut butter

Peanut butter and banana are a classic combination that’s been around for ages. It can be used as a spread, as an ingredient in smoothies, or even just eaten by itself.

Peanut butter is great because it contains protein and healthy fats which are essential for your body to function properly. Bananas contain potassium, which helps regulate blood pressure levels, so they make great snacks to keep you healthy!

Cereal and milk

You can make cereal in 5 minutes or less. Just pour dry cereal into a bowl, and add milk and the toppings of your choice. You’ll have a delicious breakfast ready to go in no time at all.

  • Crispy flakes, cornflakes, or muesli – 1 cup (160g)
  • Milk – 1 cup (240ml)
  • Fruit – fresh fruit such as cherry tomatoes, grapes, etc., sliced up into small pieces will work well too!

Grilled cheese

If you’re looking for a quick and easy meal, this grilled cheese sandwich is the way to go. It’s simple, it uses good ingredients, and it tastes great. Now the rest work is to cook it! If you don’t have a pan that can handle high heat, just use something as large as your skillet will allow—you’ll just want to make sure not too much oil leaks out of the pan onto your countertop or floor before flipping over each slice of bread. Don’t forget about using butter instead of margarine (and don’t worry if your house smells like french fries after doing so).

And finally: don’t overdo it on the cheese! You should be able to taste both cheddar and swiss clearly when eating this one bite at a time—not smothered in sauce or melted into one giant ball inside some kind of fake meatloaf thingy which doesn’t belong anywhere near food unless its name was actually “meatball.”

Hummus and veggies

If you’re looking for a quick and simple meal, hummus is one of the best things you can make. It’s also one of the most versatile—you can use it as a base for dips, spreads, or sandwiches. The trick is to use chickpeas (or garbanzo beans) in place of tahini if possible; otherwise, add half a handful of each ingredient to your food processor and whizz until smooth. You’ll need olive oil as well as tahini and garlic – both are easy additions once everything else has been added! Add diced vegetables such as carrots or cucumbers if desired before serving with pita pieces of bread or crackers on the side (though they’re not necessary).

Kale salad with lemon juice and olive oil

One of the most nutrient-dense vegetables on our planet is Kale. It’s also delicious, and it’s easy to make kale salad in five minutes or less. Kale is high in vitamin C, fiber, and iron. It also contains calcium (which helps build bone density).

To make this kale salad you’ll need:

  • 1 bunch of curly green kale (or any variety), washed and torn into pieces
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil + more for drizzling over the top once it’s cooled down a bit
  • Juice of half lemon or lime (about 1 tbsp) ¼ cup olive oil + more for drizzling over the top once it cooled down a bit ½ cup lemon juice

1 – Preheat oven to 400F degrees/200C degrees Celsius

Oatmeal with banana, cinnamon, honey, or maple syrup

Oatmeal is a good source of fiber and protein, which can help you feel fuller for longer when you’re trying to lose weight. You can make oatmeal with milk, water, or yogurt—or even just water if you prefer it that way! Bananas are a great source of potassium and vitamin C—two nutrients that may help keep your blood pressure under control.

Honey is naturally sweet so it won’t add additional calories to your food; maple syrup adds just the right amount of flavor without adding any extra sugar or carbs. Cinnamon has many health benefits including digestive support for people who suffer from diarrhea or constipation (it’s also great for reducing inflammation).

Peanut butter sandwich

It is a very simple and tasty recipe. You’ll need a few ingredients:

  • Peanut butter (or any nut butter)
  • Bread, preferably whole wheat or sprouted grain bread
  • Banana, sliced or mashed into banana slices depending on how you like them (it’s up to you)

Scrambled or fried eggs with a piece of toast

Eggs are a great source of protein and iron, zinc, and vitamins A, B12, and D.

Toast is easy to make in the microwave. You can add cheese or veggies if you want to add a little extra flavor! Bacon makes it even better!

Eggs are also a good source of iron, zinc, and vitamins A, B12, and D

Salmon fillet with rice or quinoa and broccoli, drizzled with olive oil, vinegar, salt, and pepper.

To make the salmon fillet, it’s best to use a meat thermometer. You can buy them in any supermarket or kitchenware shop and they are relatively inexpensive.

To prepare rice or quinoa, place the grain in a saucepan with cold water and bring it to a boil over high heat until all liquid has evaporated (about 20 minutes). Drain off excess water if necessary.

Broccoli goes well with salmon because it adds vitamin C, which helps break down proteins into amino acids that our bodies need for energy production! It also contains folate—a B vitamin that helps prevent birth defects during pregnancy when consumed daily by pregnant women who are trying to conceive naturally (or in vitro fertilization). Broccoli is one vegetable that has high levels of both vitamin K2 (found only in animal products) as well as lutein which helps protect vision against age-related macular degeneration!

Healthy, quick meals can be made in 5 minutes.

The best part about healthy, quick meals is that they can be made in 5 minutes or less. It’s true: you don’t even have to spend time prepping ingredients. You just toss them together and cook!

Healthy food doesn’t have to be expensive or hard to find. You can make your own healthy foods for pennies on the dollar compared to what you’d pay at the store—and it’ll taste better too!


Hopefully, you now have some new ideas for meals in 5 minutes. It is important to remember that these are just suggestions and you should adjust them to suit your taste buds. If you have never tried making anything from scratch before then don’t be afraid of experimenting with different ingredients and flavors!
