Make Ahead Meals for the Whole Family!

A lot of pantry staple meals are fantastic and simple recipe to make ahead – since they aren’t loaded with fresh produce that can wilt or spoil in the fridge. Great for a busy weeknight, for entertaining, or just for those nights when you don’t feel like cooking.  I like to meal prep one a few batches ahead of time, and freeze some for later (beans and soups freeze particularly well!).  Having ready cooked meals in the fridge or freezer is a great way to enjoy home cooked meals when you don’t have time in the kitchen.  Freezing ingredients is also a great way to use up food that may be expiring soon.  Check out all my make ahead meals on The Herbeevore for some inspo to help you prep, keep, heat, and heat!

Pantry Staple Dinner Recipes

Dinners around here are always built around some staples: we love curries over rice, saucy pastas, and chilis loaded with beans. Getting plant-based protein in at dinner time can be easy with some of these great pantry recipes. One thing that has been especially life-changing for me (not exaggerating at all 🙂 ) is finding out that shelf-stabile tofu exists.  I have bought cases and cases of this tofu and it is my favorite for making creamy sauces, crispy baked tofu, and adding to pastas to make them heartier. The following vegan pantry staple dinner recipes are tried & true classics on our homestead!
