41 Delicious Single-Serving Dinners

So you’re not eating the same thing all week long.

Even though some of us love leftovers, it doesn’t mean we always want to eat them day after day (especially when cooking for one!). That’s why we created this collection of single-serving dinner recipes so you don’t have to. There’s something for everyone, from meat-lovers to seafood-lovers to those of you interested in eating a more plant-based diet. And the best part is, many of these recipes rely on supermarket staples—such as canned beans, frozen shrimp, cooked chicken breast, precooked rice and lentils—helping to streamline prep time, cook time, and cleanup.
