8 Best Frozen Meals at Target To Keep On Hand for Busy Nights
Target may already be your go-to destination for cute, affordable clothes and trendy housewares, but have you checked out their frozen food section? This oft-overlooked part of the store is brimming with healthy meals that can be heated up in a cinch — perfect for those long workdays when you just don’t have the energy to chop veggies or stand over a hot stove. Best of all, many of them not only taste good but are good for you, too. Whether you’re looking for some convenient dinners for those occasional late work nights or a few simple heat-and-eat lunches to pack for work, here are some frozen meals you’ll definitely want to keep on hand.
1. Purple Carrot Gluten Free Vegan Frozen Sweet Corn Elote Bowl
This vegan bowl is not only non-GMO, but also gluten-free. With fiber-rich brown rice, quinoa, and chickpeas, it’s satiating enough to keep those hunger pangs at bay for hours. Red bell peppers, plant-based parmesan, and creamy lime sauce add an explosion of savory and salty flavor, while the roasted pepitas add some satisfying crunch.
2. Amy’s Gluten Free Frozen Greek Inspired Red Rice & Veggies
Did you know that red rice has significantly more antioxidants than many other types of rice? This bowl not only features long-grain red rice, but also a medley of organic veggies — including broccoli, kale, onions, and fire-roasted sweet potatoes. The recipe was devised by renowned chef Charleen Badman, AKA “The Veggie Whisperer,” so you know it’s tasty. It’s also topped with chickpeas, creamy feta crumbles, and a tangy vinaigrette, for a super filling lunch or dinner. Did we mention this bowl is gluten-free, kosher, or vegetarian diet — and happens to be soy- and tree nut-free?
3. Evol Gluten Free Frozen Fire Grilled Steak Bowl
With a whopping 18 grams of protein and 7 grams of fiber per serving, this gluten-free bowl is one of the best Target frozen meals you can buy that’ll hold you over. Made with juicy fire-grilled steak that was raised with no antibiotics, black beans, bell peppers, roasted corn, and cheddar cheese — and topped with a flavor-packed cilantro lime pesto — it makes for a hearty lunch or dinner.
4. Healthy Choice Power Bowls Frozen Shiitake Chicken
Craving a healthy stir fry? Look no further than this flavorful power bowl, which features all-natural chicken breast, shiitake mushrooms, edamame, and an array of crunchy veggies over a bed of ancient grains and topped with a crave-worthy sesame soy vinaigrette. This frozen meal packs 21 grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber, but contains no artificial ingredients whatsoever.
5. Good & Gather Frozen Mediterranean-Style Seasoned Quinoa, Couscous & Vegetable Blend
Another one of the best Target frozen meals is this simple Mediterranean-style grain and veggie blend. Made with seasoned spinach, chickpeas, red pepper and onion over a bed of quinoa and couscous, it can be served on its own for a lighter lunch or dinner — or with grilled chicken, shrimp, or vegan sausage for an extra dose of protein.
6. Red’s Frozen Organic Bean Rice & Cheese Burrito
This vegetarian burrito may not contain meat, but it’s certainly not lacking in flavor. With a savory mixture of pinto beans, cheddar, brown rice, jalapeño peppers and chili powder all wrapped up in a wheat tortilla, it’s a delicious and high-fiber meal that heats up in just a few minutes. Thanks to the beans, cheese, and whole grains, it contains an impressive 12 grams of protein per serving. Best of all, it’s made with organic ingredients and non-GMO project-certified.
7. Kodiak Protein-Packed Power Waffles Blueberry Frozen Waffles
Pop a couple of these protein-packed waffles into your toaster, oven, or air fryer and you’ll have an energizing breakfast in just 2-5 minutes. Made with 100% whole grains, real blueberries, and whey protein concentrate, they provide 12 grams of protein and 3 grams of fiber per serving, making them an ideal meal to kick off your morning. These power waffles are also made with all non-GMO ingredients and only contain 5 grams of added sugar per serving.
8. Banza Chickpea Crust Cheese Frozen Pizza
Frozen pizzas get a pretty bad rap from a nutritional standpoint, but this one gets major points, thanks largely to the chickpea crust — which has two times the protein, three times the fiber, and 10% fewer net carbs than the average healthy crust. In fact, each serving (half the pizza) offers 17 grams of protein and 7 grams of fiber. Serve it alongside a side salad or some steamed veggies for a balanced meal that’ll stick with you much longer than your typical ‘za.
