7 Light Spring Dinner Recipes That Will Fill You Up
Once the weather starts to get warmer, we tend to leave behind the heavy pasta dishes, creamy casseroles, and stews. Fruits and veggies are fresher and lighter dinners that don’t feel heavy are much more appealing when it is a hot night and you don’t want to load up on food that will make you feel sluggish the rest of the night.
If you are looking for something fresh, light, and healthy to put on your dinner table this spring, we have found the best 7 light spring dinner that will fill you up but not leave you bloated and uncomfortable all night long.
Grab some fresh veggies and other simple ingredients, and let’s get cooking!
Grilling a steak outside is one of the best dinners you can make in the spring. It is easy to make a steak dinner feel heavy, but if you pair it with the right ingredients, it can feel light and refreshing. This dinner combines edamame, snow peas, red onion, mint, and fresh oranges to make a light and refreshing steal dinner bursting with flavor.
Pasta is great in the summer if you make it with a light and tasty sauce. This pasta dish uses olive oil, lemon, garlic, red pepper flakes, parm, pepper, and fresh parsley to make a sauce that is full of bold flavors but will not leave you feeling super full and uncomfortable!
Everyone loves a good chicken lettuce wrap, and these just might be the best! Lettuce wraps a low carb and an awesome way to pack in a ton of veggies into your dinner and keep your protein up with the chicken. Carrots, radishes, mint, cilantro, mushrooms, red peppers, and onions make this dish veggie-forward, but the chicken is seasoned with chili paste, lime, soy sauce, and a little bit of maple syrup for sweetness.
Serve all this goodness in a crunch lettuce wrap and you have the perfect light dinner for both spring and summer.
Sandwiches can be heavy, but a Bahn mi is light and packed with flavor, making it a perfect warm weather dinner that will fill you up…but not too much. The sandwich is made on fluffy French rolls. In between the bread, you will find chili sauce, cucumbers, radishes, carrots, cilantro, and jalapeños. To round it off, creamy mayo and zippy sesame dressing take this spring dinner over the edge.
Scampi does not always have to go with pasta. In this dish, you take shrimp and make a classic scampi sauce all on its own without the pasta. It is finished with fresh chives and you can pair this tasty shrimp with your favorite spring veggies. Asparagus, sugar snap peas, corn, or a Cesar salad would work perfectly with this light dish.
Salmon is one of the healthiest fishes you can eat, and it is a great spring food as well. This salmon is paired with a lemon and garlic cream sauce that is not heavy and makes this salmon feel special and fancy.
Make a side salad to go with the salmon. If you want something a bit heartier, cook some brown rice and pair with your favorite veggie.
