With the September Whole30 around the corner, we’ve been busy collecting quick and easy recipes to help us through the month. We’re turning to lots of sheet pan meals this month; you can’t go wrong with protein, vegetables, and sauce/seasonings cooked on one dish! Clean-up is minimal and most of these recipes will leave you with leftovers to make packing school or work lunches a snap the next day.
Here’s a round-up of TEN of our favorite sheet pan meals with thoughts from the bloggers who created them! Which ones will you try?
“Weeknights are a perfect time for a simple and beautiful sheet-pan dinner. It’s only three ingredients drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with my Italian spice blend. Use your favorite seasoning blend if you don’t have an Italian blend. Getting dinner on the table can’t get much easier.”
“I don’t even know if this counts as a recipe because it’s stupid easy. I think the hardest part is making sure I don’t burn my chicken when I broiled it for maximum crispy skin. Other than that, you’re literally tossing a bunch of protein and vegetables with spices and calling it a day! …a very flavorful day I might add.”
“The pineapple layered with the leftover Whole30 ham really gives the meat such a yummy flavor as the natural sugars in the pineapples help to caramelize the artificial sugar-free Paleo ham a bit. It’s like using brown sugar to get that slightly sweet taste, except totally way better, way healthier and obviously Whole30 compliant!”
“This Teriyaki Beef Sheet Pan Dinner came out of the oven absolutely PERFECT. The broccoli was perfectly cooked and even wonderfully crispy on the edges, the beef had that perfect takeout near-crispy (but not over-cooked) texture, and the marinade reduced to form the tastiest sauce over everything. I was blown away and so excited to bring you this method.”
“Sheet pan meals are just one of those things you have to have in your back pocket. Throw it all in the oven and let the oven do the work. It just doesn’t get much better than that. Plus, it makes for kitchen clean up to be a heck of a lot easier. Here is a super-duper simple sheet pan meal that is still satisfying and delicious. It’s simply Italian sausage links with green beans, bell peppers and onions roasted to perfection. I serve mine with a little lemon, mustard, and side of sauerkraut and I am a happy woman.”
“We always keep salmon in the freezer, so I thawed a fillet quickly then scrounged together the vegetables we had left. It was a mix of fresh and frozen, but you know what? It still worked perfectly! So use the veggies that you have. Carrots, mushrooms, snap peas? Those would be equally tasty in this stir-fry inspired meal!”
Laughing Spatula’s Sheet Pan Fajitas *Make sure to omit the non-Whole30 compliant fajita toppings!
“I love that everything with this is Whole30 compliant and simple, right down to the seasoning. Cumin, chili powder, garlic, salt and pepper into some olive oil makes your perfect fajita marinade.”
“This Whole30 Steak and Potatoes Sheet Pan Dinner is the perfect meal for a busy weeknight or when you don’t want to spend an hour in the kitchen. Rosemary and garlic enhance the flavors of the steak and veggies without overpowering them. This meal is so simple and easy to make with minimal prep and cleanup.”
“This One-Pan Teriyaki Chicken Veggie Bake made with a simple homemade teriyaki sauce is easy to make, infused with asian flavors, and Whole30 friendly! Most homemade teriyaki sauces are made with soy sauce and a sweetener of some sort but you won’t find either of those ingredients in this recipe. I replaced the soy sauce and sweetener with coconut aminos and freshly squeeze orange juice and the results were on point. A Whole30 friendly Teriyaki Sauce for the win!”
“This Roasted Lemon Chicken and Green Beans Sheet Pan Meal is an easy and delicious dinner that’s low-carb, Keto, low-glycemic, gluten-free, dairy-free, and South Beach Diet Phase One, and can be Paleo or Whole 30 with the right ingredient choices!”
