When you have healthy dinners on hand, eating right is so much easier. There’s no need to get takeout if you have a meal ready and waiting in the fridge! These are some of our favorite recipes for making and refrigerating or freezing for later.
When it comes to make-ahead meals, it doesn't get much easier than chili. This recipe is our favorite.
Indian Curried Cauliflower & Chickpea Burritos
Another make-ahead staple? Burritos! Freeze them and pop them in the oven or microwave when you're ready to eat.
Onion & Potato Stuffed Pierogis
Keeping a big batch of pierogis on hand in the freezer makes dinner a cinch; we love this version from The Plant Strong Vegan.
Heat-Free Lentil & Walnut Tacos
Since these tacos are meant to be served cold, you don't even have to heat them up when it's dinnertime!
Make & Freeze Slow Cooker Veggie Tortilla Soup
Soups almost always reheat well; liven them up with fresh garnishes before serving.
Rainbow Power Kale Salad
Not all salads keep well in the fridge, but ones made with sturdy greens like this one from With Salt and Wit are a good bet.
Chana Masala Stuffed Sweet Potatoes
Both the chickpeas and the sweet potatoes can be made in advance for this healthy dinner.
Freezer-Friendly Vegetable Enchiladas
Customize these enchiladas with your favorite fillings and sauce and freeze them for later.
Thai Lentil Meatloaf
Meatloaves will last in the fridge all week long--although this one from The Roasted Root is so tasty, it might not make it until Friday!
Lemony Wheat Berries with Roasted Brussels Sprouts
Simple salads made with whole grains and roasted vegetables hold up well in the fridge and can be eaten warm or cold.
Mexican Falafel Bites
These freezer-friendly bites from Cotter Crunch are the perfect finger food for kids.
Slow-Cooker Indian-Spiced Chickpeas & Potatoes
Slow cookers make cooking for later so much easier--and recipes like this hold up well in the fridge or freezer.
Lentil Shepherd's Pie
This shepherd's pie from Delish Knowledge will last in the fridge for several days or it can be frozen for even longer.
Sloppy Black-Eyed Peas
These peas from Cravings of a Lunatic aren't just for sandwiches! Use them in meal bowls or serve them over baked potatoes too.
