I’ve been talking a lot about bulk cooking lately so today I thought I would share some of my favourite freezer friendly vegetarian meals! I’d love to hear your favourites as well!
Curries, Stews & Casseroles
Tomato based dishes freeze better than coconut-milk based ones, but you can freeze them as well. I usually have a few serves of a curry or two, a chickpea stew and maybe even a broccoli casserole in my freezer at any one time. Some of my go-to recipes include:
- Potato & Pea Curry
- Sweet Potato & Chickpea Stew
- Brown RIce & Broccoli Casserole
- Pumpkin & Chickpea Curry
Mexican cuisine freezes particularly well and is oh-so-easy to make vegetarian friendly. Enchiladas, chilli, burritos, taco fillings – they can all be made in advance and pop in the freezer for when you need them. Try these recipes to start you off!
- Vegetarian Chilli
- Jamie Oliver’s Enchiladas
- Refried Bean & Cheese Burritos
- Spinach & Green Chili Enchiladas
Pasta bake, lasagna, stuffed pasta shells – you name it, pasta freezes well! Plus, it’s cheap, easy and delicious! Here’s a few recipes to try out!
- Veggie Mama’s Best Ever Lasagna
- Vegetable Baked Ziti
- Chard Stuffed Pasta Shells
- White Mushroom Lasagna
Sometimes you want a meal fast, but you don’t necessarily want something heavy, carb-loaded or cheesy and that’s where burger patties come in! They freeze and reheat really well and can make a light, fresh dinner in no time (with or without the bread!)
Soups are a rather obvious freezer meal but that’s for good reason! Plus, if you go for a heartier option then they can be a complete meal, or paired with some crunchy toast! I went through quite the soup phase a while ago so there’s lots of recipes on the blog, but here are a few of my go-tos!
- Broccoli & White Bean Soup
- Sweet Potato & Black Bean Soup
- Carrot, Ginger & Coconut Soup
- Curried Lentil Soup
There are lots of other delicious freezer friendly vegetarian meals that I highly recommend you try out, including:
- Onion, Goat Cheese & Herb Pie
- Spinach & Ricotta Rolls
- Mushroom & Cabbage Wontons
- Sun-dried Tomato & Feta Tarts
- Broccoli Parmesan Meatballs
