Cooking for the freezer saves both time and money, so wouldn`t it be great to have a thread here with tips and ideas about what recipes/meals we use to feed the freezer with?

it's a great idea, but our food gets eaten within one to two days as left overs! What do you put in the freezer?

I make cornbread in big batches & freeze (they reheat very nicely!), various flavored muffins, mini-lentil loaves, brown rice (since it takes an hour to cook, make lots at one time freeze in 1 cup portions --to reheat, add a few droops of water to moisten it back up), all kind of beans freeze well too once they are cooked..

These are just a few that I make, along with other things whenever I have lots of leftovers. It really does save TONS of time during the week!!

I usually always have different kinds of beans in the freezer, like borlotti, black, kidney, chickpeas etc. But I`m not very good at freezing meals, YK?

Lasagne would be a good one, I think.

Spaghettisauce, too.


I would love to freeze the blackbean balls from Veganomicon, but I`m not sure they would freeze well?

My freezer's really full, anytime I make soup, curry, chilli, bean burgers etc I make a big batch and freeze it in portions. Also flatbread dough and pastry ready to be thawed and rolled.

I make soups, bean burgers, muffins, banana bread, chili in large batches and then freeze. So nice for lunches especially.

I made a huge batch of baked ziti last week, and froze individual portions. It froze beautifully.Looking forward to hearing more great ideas.

I like to make lots of bean and rice burritos and freeze them, so I can have a really quick healthy snack, breakfast, lunch or dinner with about 2.5 mins in the mircrowave.

I also tend to freeze rice and dahl.
