What is the best way to meal prep for freezer meals?
The easiest thing to do to meal prep is to wash and prepare all the veggies. They all need a good scrubbing and most of them will need to be peeled or chopped into pieces.
Doing this in batches will help you be able to add the veggies into so many different recipes.
Do you freeze meals cooked or uncooked?
When it comes to veggies, I’m fine freezing them either way. If it’s a casserole or a dish that I know I’m going to have to bake, I’ll freeze the recipes uncooked without worry.
If you want to have a meal that you cook and then freeze, you can do that too. Either is great options and are part of what makes freezer meals so great.
What are some of the best vegetables to freeze?
Any vegetable besides lettuce, cabbage, or cucumber actually freezer pretty well. Some veggies are going to lose their crispness when you freeze them but they’re still going to taste amazing!
How do you properly freeze veggies?
Since you’re freezing these recipes as a meal, the main thing to keep in mind is that you need to freeze them and keep the air out and away from the food. Air is what causes freezer burn and that causes dishes to not taste very good.
Make certain that you’re using freezer-safe containers or bags for your storage needs and try to get out as much air as possible before sealing.
How long will veggies last in the freezer?
If you’re freezing with a good seal and keeping the air out, the vegetables will last anywhere from 8-10 months in your freezer.
