1. Double up! Sometimes the easiest way to increase your freezer stash is by doubling a recipe and simply freezing half.
With that, here are our top 10 favorite freezer-meals:
1. Bolognese Spaghetti Sauce
Jo Mama’s Spaghetti sauce is hands down our go-to when it comes to meaty spaghetti sauce. Not only does it require simple ingredients, but this recipe makes a ton of leftovers, which is great for freezer stashing. Keep whole grain pasta in your pantry for a quick meal! (Find recipe here.)
2. Tomato Basil Soup
Tomato basil soup is easy to make, and this Ina Garten version doesn’t include any cream, making it an easy freezer meal. (Find recipe here.)
3. Breakfast frittatas/quiche
There are endless combinations for the mini frittatas that are made in muffin cups, but we like Skinnytaste’s Petite Crust-less Quiche, packed with veggies and turkey kielbasa. (Find recipe here.)
Smoothies make a great breakfast or afternoon pick-me-up. Keep frozen vegetables and fruit on hand, and blend with almond milk and some easy add-ins like flax or chia seeds for an all around meal. (Find recipe here.)
5. Oven Roasted Meatballs and Sauce
These baked turkey meatballs are a favorite of ours – it’s healthy with simple ingredients. I’d recommend keeping a container of cornmeal in your pantry to make an easy polenta to serve on the side! (Find recipe here.)
6. Breakfast burritos/sandwiches
Lentils are so good for you, and this dish is jam-packed with nutrition and flavor – from fresh tomatoes, cilantro, turmeric, and other spices to help this make our list. We always have basmati rice on hand to serve on the side. (Find recipe here.)
