I'm stocking up this weekend on frozen lunches, so that I can save some time and money. Ideally, I'd like to have enough to last me the entire month, so that I'll have some variety. So far I've made a blended veggie soup and a big vegetarian chili with quinoa. Between those two, I'm good for 2 weeks. Any other ideas for easy, freezable meals?<br><br><br><br>
My goal is to pick up a frozen container in the morning, grab some salad and some fruit and head out the door.<br><br><br><br>
Thanks!

My husband does this for his lunches. Some of the things he makes are:<br><br><br><br>
- enchiladas (essentially bean and rice burritos with enchilada sauce poured over them)<br><br>
- Pasta with tomato sauce that's chock full of veggies<br><br>
- Red coconut curried vegetables on rice<br><br>
- Potato/onion pierogies (storebought) sauteed with onion and fake bacom (you could probably also throw in some bell pepper strips too)<br><br>
- veggie burger broken up into pieces with mashed potatoes, side of veggies, and gravy

Thanks meatless! I ended up making bean burritos (I don't know why I never thought of freezing those before!) and a bit pot of lentil soup. So now I have 2 weeks' worth of meals (supper and lunch, which is perfect since I'm cooking for one) waiting in my freezer.

Tofu lasagna freezes pretty well. Baked beans. Pasta with marinara, beans and veggies. Macaroni and cheese.<br><br><br><br>
I stocked up on a lot of 1-serving containers and used to eat from my freezer a lot, before I got too busy to cook!

Vegetable curry is another good one, as is pasta sauce (ie. lentil bolognaise)- although it takes a bit of prep time to boil the spaghetti, of course.

I just made a batch of lunches to freeze as well. My basic formula is brown rice+quinoa as a base and then a mixture of lentils + assorted vegetables cooked in veg stock with curry powder. Tonight I used onions, carrots, mushrooms, frozen squash cubes, frozen peas and some frozen mixed veg.<br><br><br><br>
The first time I made it my family bugged me about making such a hippy-dippy/healthy lunch...but now I get requests to make it all the time <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)"> Keeps you going all afternoon at work....no 3pm wall!
