7 High-Protein, Low-Calorie Meals That Are Easy To Make And Super Filling

Gochujang Gumbo

In this high-protein gumbo, gochujang (Korean chili bean paste) and red Fresno chiles bring flavor, while celery, bell pepper, and okra give heartiness.

Chicken Tinga Tostadas

Cotija cheese provides saltiness to these chicken tinga tostadas, while cilantro adds color and taste. Baking tortillas gives them a crispy foundation and uses less oil than deep-frying.

Stuffed Pepper Soup  

Like stuffed peppers, this soup is done quickly and with less dishes! We add onion, Cheddar cheese, and tortilla chips, but salsa, sour cream, and corn are all great.

Peppery Barbecue-Glazed Shrimp

In this healthy BBQ shrimp recipe, shrimp are seasoned with a peppery spice blend and served with zucchini, peppers and whole-grain orzo for a delicious and easy dinner

Turkey Pumpkin Chili

This chili appears like autumn in a bowl, but you can prepare it year-round using canned pumpkin purée. This hearty recipe includes pumpkin, lean ground turkey, two cannellini beans

Roasted Spiced Salmon

For lean protein, salmon is a wonderful change from chicken and shrimp. Served with lemony spinach and rice pilaf and luscious golden raisins, this one is seasoned with turmeric

Instant Pot Goulash  

Instant Pots or other multicookers take hours off this Hungarian meat stew recipe. Caraway and smoky paprika-flavored Instant Pot goulash is served over whole-wheat egg noodles
