Who has a recipe they've frozen before, and it worked well? Post your recipes so we can all make our post-partum freezer stashes!
Mine follows - it's far from gourmet but it is satisifying as a complete protein and freezing doesn't hurt it. I make a huge ginormous pot of it and freeze it in large-ish portion sizes. This'll be more helpful for moms of winter babies.
My recipe is vegetarian, but that doesn't mean the one you share needs to be! Thanks Mamas!
VEGETARIAN PROTEIN AND VEGGIE STEW
*A big ol' bunch of brown rice - however much I have on hand - maybe three or four cups before cooking.
*Dried beans (black, red, whatever) or lentils - again, however much I have on hand. Don't forget to soak overnight unless you're using lentils.
*Combine cooked rice and beans in a large pot, add a little water, then add a generous amount of chopped kale or whatever greens you have on hand. I also like to add potatoes and carrots - you can add those to your beans while they're still cooking. Any vegetables you have in your drawer that might not get used - toss 'em in!
*Season the pot : maybe a couple of vegan bouillon cubes. If you don't have any cubes on hand, or don't feel like using them, I use some red or white pepper, salt, garlic powder, maybe some Mrs. Dash, or whatever spices look good to you.
*Stir and cook over low heat until everything's tender and sort of a stew-like consitency, adding a little water as needed.
Again, not gourmet, but good comfort food and a good way to clean out your vegetable bin and take advantage of dry goods you already have.
