Eating from the freezer!

My freezer is generally stocked with a wealth of ingredients! From soups to baked goods! I went digging the last couple of days and found some real winners.

Spicy Noodles are so delicious and satisfying! Brown rice spaghetti is $2.00/lb at my local Market Basket , so I usually have some on hand. Having a delicious  wasabi ginger sauce on hand from the freezer allows me to throw together this dish in the time it takes to boil the noodles. Of course, if you don't want to use noodles, feel free to sub Daikon!

I still have seitan cutlets in my freezer! I made a quick 5 spice BBQ sauce out of leftover Salsa, Ketchup, mustard and spices. I will never be able to eat seitan, but my son loves it so it's nice to have on hand for him. The next time I make the cutlets I will post the recipe. In the meantime, here is a link to one of my most basic seitan recipes.

Finally, finding two pieces of Almost Raw Key Lime Pie was a huge treat!

Do you stock your freezer with leftovers?


  1. Oh, how I wish I knew how to take photos like you do...looks great!

  2. Oooh! You've just reminded me that I, too, have exactly two pieces of raw key lime pie in my freezer! I know what's on the menu for dessert tonight :)

  3. I'd love to rummage through your freezer too! Those noodles sound super good. I'm totally down with brown rice pasta; I've got to try that wasabi-ginger sauce.

    My freezer is full of stuff. My biggest problem is getting lazy about labeling things...I am more often than not defrosting some mystery substance...

  4. I love finding stuff in the freezer like that, but actually I rarely put anything in it. Chris LOVES leftovers, whereas I'd be happy to stash in the freezer for another time.

  5. why am I not finding almost raw key lime pie in my freezer? I demand a refund.
    but yes, I truly love shoving leftovers in the freezer for those times when I just can't be bothered cooking. sometimes it gets so full that everything falls back on me if I dare open the door, but it's totally worth breaking my nose for it.

  6. Unfortunately, my freezer doesn't work so well, so I tend to not make enough to save, since it's a crapshoot on whether or not it will be good or freezer-burned. But I did make extra mushroom pecan burgers from Everyday Vegan last week, so I have some of those in there, and I usually have a couple of different kinds of frozen beans.

  7. Yummy! I don't seem to have much luck with putting foods in the freezer. Most of the time my foods don't taste good after they have been frozen.
    I have got to try your seitan recipe. It sounds awesome!

  8. I tend to freeze ingredients, (cooked beans, blanched veggies, fruits, etc.) more often than actual leftovers. But I think I do have some leftover frosting stashed in there somewhere! :)
