What are “nextovers”? A term created by Epicurious food director, Rhoda Boone, Nextovers are more a habit than a "thing." The concept is basically the practice of bulk-prepping veggies, proteins, grains and beans on an open afternoon (consider blocking off a couple of hours on Sunday afternoon) so these ingredients are ready to riff on when it comes to the busy times during the week when we are thrashing about trying to put a meal on the table. With the food already seasoned and cooked—usually the limiting factor of the prep dance—you can grab what you need from the fridge and build a quick grain bowl, pasta, soup, wrap or salad.
