Healthy Make-Ahead Dinner Recipes

Zucchini Lasagna Rolls with Smoked Mozzarella
This healthy riff on lasagna rolls uses strips of zucchini instead of lasagna noodles for a vegetable-packed dinner that's fun for the whole family. This is a great recipe for kids to help make--let them get their hands dirty rolling the zucchini ribbons with the cheesy filling. Use a vegetable peeler or mandoline to quickly slice the zucchini into uniform thin strips--this will ensure easy rolling and even cooking.
Lemon Dill Sauce
In this easy lemon dill sauce recipe, a combination of reduced-fat sour cream and mayonnaise is a winner, producing an exceptionally creamy sauce. Chopped dill pickles add an interesting texture as well as an appealing tart flavor, making this the perfect sauce to serve with fish.
Honey-Soy-Ginger Glaze
Keep this super-simple, versatile glaze on hand and you will be able to elevate any type of grilled or roasted meat, poultry, seafood or vegetable to company fare. Wait until the food has 5 to 10 minutes left to cook before brushing with the glaze. Then turn often, brushing with glaze, to create a glossy crust.
Tandoori-Style Turkey Kebabs with Carrot-Radish Salad
This Indian-inspired recipe pairs marinated Tandoori-style turkey kebabs with a fresh carrot and radish salad. Prep time is only 30 minutes, but you'll want to allow at least 4 hours for the turkey to absorb the yogurt and spice marinade.
Perfect Water & Whole-Wheat Challah
Whether you use it for sandwiches, breakfast toast, or as a serve-along for soups, this whole-wheat version of challah is delightful.
