When we have a little more time on our hands, why not take the opportunity to prepare some recipes and freeze them! We can even include the children in the process to make it an activity before returning to class! That way, we'll have home-cooked meals ready to go when we get back to our routine. Here are our top 30 recipes to freeze!

1. Soup

What could be more comforting than a good soup on a cold winter day? 


2. Chili

One thing I love about chili is its versatility: it's equally delicious when made with beef, with beans, or with both! Plus, it can be eaten on its own, with brown rice or with tortilla chips! 

3. Tofu Puttanesca Sauce

Here are some of our little tricks when making homemade tomato sauce: 1) Add in a protein source (in this case, tofu!); 2) Add vegetables; 3) Double the recipe, so you can put some of it in the freezer! 

4. Lasagna

Lasagna is a special meal in our house. So you can imagine that when we take one out of the freezer, already prepared for our dinner, the whole family is happy! 


5. Tourtière

It's often eaten during special Christmas dinners... but why not make an extra one to enjoy once the holiday season is over? :) 

6. Shepherd's Pie

No leftovers for tomorrow's dinner? A single serving of frozen shepherd's pie is a perfect choice to tide you over!

7. Burger Patties

In my house, fast food = burgers! However, store-bought burgers can be expensive and high in salt, which is why I like to make them at home and freeze them, then take them out for a quick dinner! 

8. Bean Wrap

Pulses offer so many health benefits! Good sources of fibre, iron, potassium and protein, and low in fat and salt, they are great food choices to include more often in our diet. Here is a legume wrap mix that can be made ahead of time and then frozen.
