This has been one of our favorites. recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detai
asp?recipe=465075 It's spark friendly, easy to double even triple and freezes beautifully. Use on top of a taco salad or as taco's. I use mild salsa so the kids will eat it but I'll bet it's delicious with a salsa with some heat.
Here's what I freeze, although it's not all low fat:
soups: vegetable soup (the only thing if it has potato you need to blend it because potato does not freeze well at all for the most part), butternut squash soup, mushroom barley soup
lasagne (usually in small containers)
chicken - either the dump kind or another type of pre-seasoned type or already baked
meatballs in sauce or similarly, meat sauce
there's a great book called the 30-day gourmet freezer cookbook. I wasn't so keen on the recipes but the information was extremely helpful even for people who don't necessarily cook a month's worth of food at a time.
Thanks for the links. Hoping to find some useful information on this team even though it seems to be pretty dead now. :)
Thanks! I am always looking for things that freeze well, even if like you, I adapt the recipes.
passing on a link from my email.... from Cooking Light:
"17 best freezable recipes"
maybe not the 17 best in the world but gave me a few new ideas
along with a review of the basics:
– How to Properly Freeze Foods
That sounds good! I don't have any recipes like that, but it sure sounds like something great to have on hand for a work night!
What are your favorite recipes to freeze that are low fat, for instance "dump" chicken recipes?
Mine is Italian chicken. It is a dump chicken recipe. Take boneless skinless chicken put in a freezer bag, dump italian dressing over it and freeze. When you want to eat it, take it out put in a oven safe dish and bake at 350 until done.
