[dropcap style=”font-size: 60px; color: #00adef;”] A[/dropcap]s much as I love a freshly cooked dinner, there are times when it’s super handy to have a meal or two in your stash.
Here are 5 freezer dinners to squirrel away for a rainy evening.
Or when you’ve just had ‘one of those days’…
Five Freezer Dinners
I love soup for dinner. It’s warming and filling and it’s not just for Summer. Some of the best soups come from warm climates. Think Malaysian Laksa or a Thai Red or Green Curry Soup.
Other good soups include this No-Chop Butternut Soup, Spicy Roast Eggplant & Harissa Soup or this Spinach Soup with Smashed Feta & Walnuts. Just freeze the soup without the toppings and add them when you’re ready to eat.
You can either freeze the raw meatballs ready to bake, or bake first and freeze later. While my classic tomatoey Baked Meatballs are excellent. These Beef & Carraway Balls add a little Middle Eastern exoticism without any effort. And vegetarians you don’t have to miss out on the meatball fun with these Lentil Balls.
3. A Tasty Curry
Curries are awesome freezer meals. Especially ones like this One Pot Cauliflower, Chicken & Peanut Curry which has the meat and veggies cooked in one pot. No need for rice, just defrost, warm and sprinkle with some fresh coriander (cilantro) for greenness. Or try this Super Green Saag (Chicken & Spinach curry).
4. Pizza Bases
Having frozen pizza bases means you’ll always have a quick meal at the ready. Choose either traditional Pizza Dough OR my favourite healthy alternative Cauliflower Pizza that’s gluten-free AND includes a serve of veggies!
5. A Cheesey Bake
This Cheesey Cauli & Bacon Bake (pictured above) is my new favourite healthy alternative to mac & cheese. It uses roast cauliflower instead of pasta. For the record my boys weren’t convinced but I LOVE it.
Or for a greener version try this Cheesey Broccoli & Tuna Bake. Or for the carb-lovers there’s always Zucchini Mac & Cheese
