Using your freezer effectively can really save you time mid-week. Here are some things that I cook in advance and freeze, or just freeze to help me out for quick dinners and lunches.
I was surprised to learn that you can pre-cook and freeze potatoes- which is perfect if it looks like you’re not going to eat them before they go bad. You can halve them and they will be ready for quick roasting from frozen.
You can boil rice, cool it and freeze in portions to save some time midweek.
Pizza Dough / Quiche crust
If you make too much homemade pizza dough or quiche crust, you can freeze this to use another time
Make a second loaf and freeze for the occasion where you’re too tired to bake.
If you buy a massive bunch of parsley that you will never use before it goes off (like me), freeze it!
If you don’t bake so much and have bought a block of margarine too many you can freeze it.
I have soaked, cooked, cooled and frozen chickpeas and kidney beans with good success and is cheaper and creates less packaging than buying cans.
