When you’re trying to eat healthy, having good food in the freezer can be a huge help. Rather than being tempted by takeout, keeping pre-made vegan freezer meals on hand can make things much easier!
Before we get into the recipes, here are a few general guidelines and tips for vegan freezable meals:
- Use quality airtight containers or freezer bags. I like to use glass because it makes it really easy if I want to pop it right in the microwave. You don’t want anything leaking in your freezer! Just be sure to let glass thaw slightly before heating. You don’t want to shock the glass with drastic temperature changes.
- Make sure meals don’t get lost in the freezer. Put your newest meals in the back and older meals in the front so you don’t forget to eat what you’ve already made!
- Portion meals ahead of time, if necessary. You don’t want to thaw and refreeze a recipe, so if you’re making a batch of chili that you plan to take for a single-serving lunch, pack it in single-serving containers.
Here are a few ideas to get your freezer stocked with healthy, vegan, plant-based meals!
