Freezing recipes

Recommended Posts

Can the “skillet turkey and squash chili” be frozen.  Recipe on pg 94 of the Whole30 Fast & Easy cookbook.  Also, any suggest of any recipes that can be made ahead of time and frozen (successfully)?

I haven't tried it, but it looks like it would.

I know these salmon cakes freeze well:   https://meljoulwan.com/2014/11/10/oven-fried-salmon-cakes/

Meatballs in general freeze well, and there are a ton of different ways to season them:   https://meljoulwan.com/?s=Meatballs

Blended soups usually freeze well. I often keep frozen chicken and hamburger patties and various frozen vegetables on hand because even though they aren't precooked, I can cook a serving or two of them at a time quickly.

The freezer is your friend! In my experience, almost everything can freeze, so it's easier to think about the few things that won't. For example, dishes where texture is important can often lose crunch/crispiness when reheated. Other than that, I've never had a problem freezing Whole 30 ingredients or meals. Good luck!

Yep, I freeze darn near everything... I never cook anything without factoring in at least 2-3 pint sized mason jars to go in the freezer... the only thing I don't freeze is zuchinni, lettuce, cukes... watery veggies... everything else is fair game and sometimes the texture changes a bit but I find reheating in a skillet will take up the extra liquid and fix a bit of a texture issue :)
