Cooking extra food at the beginning of the week is the key to making my life way easier Monday through Thursday (Friday is takeout night!).
Cook Once, Eat All Week is here to help you prep the basics for healthy meals (lots of veggies, along with some grains and pulses) ahead of time, then give you the simple recipes to turn those ingredients into hearty, satisfying meals.
And this might be my simplest meal prep session yet. I decided to take a bunch of sweet potatoes, roast them up, and make them the base of my meals for the week. And by "bunch" I mean 8 small (or 4 to 5 large) sweet potatoes — enough to make 2 servings of each of the four dishes below.
Sure, that's a lot of sweet potato, but they're versatile, comforting, and oh-so-good for you.
Plus, you can most definitely freeze the soup and meatless Sweet Potato and White Bean Balls for a rainy day.
