If you’ve watched my recent video about meal prepping, you noticed that I am freezing a LOT of food. I’ve naturally fallen into a cycle of batch cooking foods on Sunday and freezing them in single servings. This is perfect for our crazy and on-the-go life. If we don’t have time for a home cooked family style meal, we’ll just grab a single serving of something from the freezer. Here are a couple of my favorite “go-to” freezer meals by other bloggers.
I omit the canola oil (and optional cheese) in this recipe, and vary the amounts of spices depending on my mood. Still, this is a great go-to recipe that is easy and freezes very, very well. Chili should be in everyone’s freezer; you never know when you’ll need a single serving for topping a baked potato or veggie dog.
Split Pea Soup >> http://www.thekitchn.com/slow-cooker-vegetarian-split-pea-soup-132464
Sometimes I cook split peas on their own and freeze them (they are tasty head up with rice or millet). Other times I want a bit more flavor, and this split pea soup is not only delicious but also made in the slow cooker (tasty + freezable + easy = win!). Again, I omit the oil and it turns out just the same.
Red Curry Lentils >> https://minimalistbaker.com/spicy-red-lentil-curry/
This recipe is perfection! Even when I leave out the coconut oil it still has a creamy, rich flavor from the coconut milk. Not to mention, the flavor gets better the longer the ingredients mingle, making it perfect for freezing and reheating.
