Top 10 All-Star Plated Dinners Under 600 Calories

When we’re developing our dinners in the Test Kitchen, we like to keep it 600. 600 calories, that is. Not every dish we make, granted, is under that number, but whether you’re Choosing600, or just calorie-counting in general, Plated has got you covered. We talked to our chefs and our users to find some house favorites that can keep you safely under the 600-calorie hurdle.

Pork Tonkatsu with Yuzu Cherry Salsa and Arugula

This Japanese izakaya favorite was fun to update with fruits and veg that are new to the dish and hopefully new to you, too.

Barbecue Chicken with Basil Zucchini and Corn

A summer cookout classic with a side of no-sufferin’ succotash.

Roasted Eggplant Moussaka with Greek Yogurt–Feta Sauce

It’s all Greek to us—but this veggie casserole is an easy, delicious taste of the Mediterranean.

Okonomiyaki with Chinese Broccoli, Sriracha Mayo, and Sesame-Cabbage Slaw

Pancakes for dinner! But trust us, these are something special.

Grilled Steak with Green Goddess Dressing and Basil-Butter Corn

Did you know? The original green goddess dressing was invented for a steakhouse salad—so we figured we’d do it the same honor in this sub-600 calorie steak dinner.

Seared Steak with Red Wine Reduction, Cipollini Onions, and Parmesan-Mashed Cauliflower

This is a more autumnal take on steak—with rich, steakhouse-inspired veggies on the side.

Roasted Broccoli and Quinoa Bowls with Pepitas

Seafood is often a choice of people looking to do the calorie limbo—this rich chowder lets you have it both ways.
