Meal prep can be a big challenge, which is why we’ve compiled the easiest recipes of them all. Prepare these dishes ahead of time in big batches or individual containers to get memorable dinners (and breakfast and dessert) on the table no matter how busy your week. Whether you’re a batch-cooking newbie or a seasoned pro of pre-made meals, these recipes are delicious, easy and anything but boring.
Quinoa and Vegetable Stuffed Peppers
A cinch to meal-prep for the week ahead, these stuffed peppers are a healthier alternative to a traditional carb-laden dish. With slow-digesting carbs and protein, you avoid the evening lull bread or pasta can bring on.
Freezer Bag Chicken Curry Stir-Fry
Set aside a bit of time over the weekend and prepare this freezer-friendly meal that can be defrosted for breezy weeknight dinners. While the chicken, cauliflower and peas simmer in the coconut curry sauce, warm some naan for dipping.
Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas
These protein-packed fajitas rely on a foil-lined baking sheet and broiler for a quick and healthy weeknight meal with minimal clean-up. Meal prep doesn’t get much easier than this. Prefer something meatless? Try these high-protein vegan meals.
Healthy Farro Fried "Rice"
For the uninitiated, farro is an Italian variety of wheat typically added to soups and risotto dishes. That being said, it’s also a perfect substitute for rice (or cauliflower rice) in this easy-peasy stir-fry recipe that you’ll have on the table in no time.
Triple-Flavour Sheet Pan Cheesecake
Throw together a cheesecake fit to feed a crowd with this tasty dessert recipe. Use early-bearing fruits such as raspberries and strawberries to enjoy early spring harvests.
