When your stomach is growling for lunch and your pantry is nearly bare, I bet you can still rummage up the ingredients for this satisfying wrap. Oh, sure, you're thinking it's just a hum-drum peanut butter sandwich — might as well make your standard PB&J — but this is not the case. Diced bananas sweeten the situation and a big handful of granola adds that textural crunch that so many peanut butter lunches are missing. What seals the deal, though, is that this wrap is quickly seared in a skillet, which browns and crisps up the outside and warms up the inside so the peanut butter begins to melt and become wonderfully gooey. Yup, this is far from your average peanut butter sandwich — and it takes no more time to make.

Stir-fries are in my regular dinner rotation because they're fast and I can cook veggies and proteins together all in one pan. One day I spotted the bag of frozen Asian dumplings that I always stock for quick lunches and an idea percolated in my head: What about using dumplings instead of meat or tofu in a stir-fry instead? And then a one-pan meal was born. Crunchy on the outside, juicy on the inside, pan-fried dumplings are tossed with crisp-tender veggies and a savory, vinegary sauce that coats everything to glossy perfection. No need to make rice or noodles to go with this stir-fry — with the dumpling wrappers, there's already a starch included!

This spicy, smoky bean salad packs a whole lot more flavor into it than you'd expect of something that takes all of six minutes to make, and you have hot smoked salmon to thank for that. Its deep flavor gives a can of black beans a serious boost of flavor, so this lunch doesn't need too much else by way of seasoning. Add some cherry tomatoes and avocado in there for color and toss it all with a cumin-lime dressing, and the result is a lunch I guarantee you'll be putting on repeat. Pile the whole mess on rice, scoop it up with chips, or just eat it straight from the bowl.
