12 Meatless Sunday Meals You Can Reheat on Monday

Quinoa chili4

I’m a Meatless Monday fan––I really am. Starting the week off with a veggie-packed day just feels good, especially after a couple of indulgent, weekend dinners with friends.

The problem is Mondays are, well, Mondays. They’re chaotic and jam-packed with meetings, so unless I’ve fully planned out lunch and dinner ahead of time they’re usually not so meatless.

To take the struggle out of meat-free Monday, I’ve started cooking up a big, meatless meal on Sunday instead. It’s perfect for using up those veggies from last week’s farmer’s market shop and the leftovers make having a Meatless Monday about as easy as it can be.

This Veggie Quinoa Chocolate Chili is a favorite in our house, but I’ve been on the hunt for more delicious vegetarian recipes that can quickly be reheated. These meatless meatballs are just one of the dishes that has me drooling.

    The minute I saw the chocolate in the chili, I knew I had to read the recipe. A friend of mine brought chili with chocolate in it to a party at my house once, and ever since my husband constantly asks if we can find one online so we can try to replicate her recipe. Anyway, thank you so much for sharing, I can’t wait to try this one!

      Glad you’re going to try it! It’s one of my favorites, and now I can’t make chili without chocolate!

    I’ve seen quite a few chili recipes that include chocolate! Can you really taste it? I’m nervous about trying that, lol.

      You can’t taste it at all! When paired with the spices and tomatoes it just adds this amazing depth of flavor. It’s so good. I promise no one will mistake it for dessert. :)

    Such a great idea! There’s nothing better than ending the weekend with a delicious home cooked meal on Sunday… except having leftovers for Monday!

      Agree! It’s also nice to end an indulgent weekend with a veggie-heavy dish.

    Hi Elle,

    Meatless Mondays are a great idea. All of these recipes look delicious, but I’m most intrigued by the chili with chocolate. Quite the combination.

    Thanks for sharing.
