Soups: Most soups tend to freeze exceptionally well! You can make a large pot of your favorite, let it cool off completely, then transfer half to a gallon-sized Ziploc bag.
Pro Tip: Store this frozen food flat to save space in your freezer!
Butter: This dairy delight can be frozen right in its wrapper, placed in a freezer bag, or wrapped in some foil.
A genius way to use it is to grate some frozen butter directly onto your baked goods or use these methods to soften your butter quickly.
Burritos: You can customize this frozen food to be a breakfast burrito or a more traditional burrito for lunch or dinner. Wrap them individually, and simply defrost them in the microwave for an instant meal!
Cheese: Grate your favorite cheese and place it in an airtight ziplock bag. We recommend adding a tablespoon of cornstarch to help prevent clumping and shake the bag to mix.
Thaw it in the fridge and use it for soups, casseroles, quiche, or even a homemade pizza. Quick Note: Hard and semi-hard cheeses like cheddar, parmesan, and mozzarella freeze better than soft cheeses do.
Beans And Lentils: You can boil a whole bag of dried beans or lentils, let them cool, divide them into Ziploc bags, and store them in the freezer.
When you’re ready to use a bag of this frozen food, smack the load on the counter a few times to loosen them up and add them directly into whatever you’re cooking.
We suggest you undercook them a bit initially, and they’ll cook a little more in whichever dish you’re making.
