10 x dishes that are even tastier the next day

Must Try

Sometimes you notice that dishes are even tastier the next day, the flavors are better absorbed and come into its own even better. Such a dish is ideal if you want to cook for several days.

Cooking for 2 days

I also do that regularly. I often cook on Monday for 2 days so that I only have to warm up on Tuesday and we can sit at the table quickly. I’ve found that some recipes lend themselves to that better than others. So I thought it would be a good idea to make a list of dishes that are ideal for reheating and taste even better the next day. They are also usually very suitable for freezing.


• Store dishes in a well-cooled refrigerator so that bacteria do not have the chance to multiply overnight.
• Heat dishes in the microwave in a closed container or plate with a lid. Never use metal in the microwave and check whether dishes are microwave safe.
• Whether or not to heat spinach in the microwave? Yes that’s allowed. It is important that you let leftover spinach cool quickly after the first preparation and store it in the refrigerator at 4 to 7 degrees Celsius. For example, bacteria that produce the potentially harmful substance nitrite have less chance to grow.

1. Soup

Soup can easily be made in large quantities and is easy to heat. Once cool, keep it in the fridge or freeze it in containers. This onion soup in particular tastes even better the next day and is slightly thickened. Check out even more soup recipes here .

2. Stew

Of course stew belongs in this list. Because stewing meat takes at least 3 hours, I have the urge to make extra and enjoy it for an extra day. For example, this Italian stew with scallops.

3. Nasi

Many herbs are often used in fried rice, which have often given the rice even better flavor the next day. Warm up the fried rice in the microwave or covered in a pan. Only fry the egg at the last minute. View the recipe for nasi goreng here .

4. Casserole

Because there are only two of us and I often make a casserole for 4 people, we eat it for 2 days. The next day I cover the casserole with aluminum foil and warm it in the oven. This way the top will darken less quickly and the dish will be less dry.

5. Lasagna

This also applies to lasagna. It is often even tastier the next day because the sauce has thickened slightly and the lasagne sheets are soft. Also cover this with aluminum foil before putting it back in the oven. Check out the recipe for lasagna with asparagus here .

6. Chili con carne.

Chili con carne has a nice Mexican spice and tastes even better the next day. You can easily heat it up in the pan or in the microwave. Eat chili con carne one day with rice and the next day, for example, with tacos or without meat .

7. Stamppot

Stamppot comes in many variations and is easy to warm up the next day in the microwave or pan, such as this stew with sprouts . If the stew is slightly dried out after heating, add a little bit of milk and butter and it will be smooth again. Tip: also make bitterballen .

8. Tiramisu

Not only main courses but also desserts often taste better the next day. Especially tiramisu , which I usually leave overnight in the fridge. The next day it has set extra well and the taste of the coffee and/or liqueur is extra well absorbed into the lady fingers.

9. Ragout and sauces

Ragout is often thickened a little extra the next day and the flavors of the ingredients are well absorbed. It warms up in a few minutes. Serve the ragout with rice one day, the next day, for example, in a pastry case or in a bun .

10. Macaronia

Also macaroni (and other pasta) is perfect for the next day. For example, put it in an oven dish with some cheese and breadcrumbs over it and warm it up in the oven. This way you have a tasty and innovative meal the next day. The most famous variant is probably this macaroni with cheese .
