7 Recipes That Make Fabulous Lunch Leftovers - Recipes from The Kitchn
From The Kitchn - October 29, 2017

Like so many people, lunch is always a constant struggle for me. Figuring out dinner and breakfast is easy, but that midday mealboy is it tough to crack. I constantly struggle with buying and prepping intentional lunches for the week. The one thing that has proven to be a savior is leftovers. If I make a dinner or two every week that holds up well in the fridge for a few days for a satisfying lunch, I can rest easy. Here are seven recipes I frequently turn to.

1. Garlicky Soba Noodle Bowls

These bowls, filled with chewy, earthy soba noodles and crunchy vegetables, are served at room temperature and hold up well in the refrigerator for a few days, so they are a great option for lunch leftovers.

2. Warm Beet and Farro Salad

This hearty vegetarian salad actually tastes even better the next day, once the dressing has even more time to soak into the farro and roasted beets. Plus, you do not even need to worry about reheating it, as it's just as good at room temperature.

3. Double-Crusted Chicken Tenders with Sriracha-Honey BBQ Sauce

If you actually manage to not eat all of these crispy, irresistible chicken tenders for dinner, leftovers are pretty great sliced on top of a salad or made into a sandwich with more of the BBQ sauce.

4. Muffin Pan Deep-Dish Pizzas

5. Orzo with Caramelized Fall Vegetables & Ginger

6. Curried Vegetable Galette

7. Chorizo Chicken Chili
