Seven Meals to Make and Freeze

 

 

Home-cooked meals are such a good healthy option, but our busy lifestyles don’t leave a lot of time for slaving over a hot stove. If your healthy intentions aren’t compatible with the weekday grind, the solution might be a Sunday cook-a-thon and a jam-packed freezer. By doing all the heavy lifting on a Sunday, you make weekday dining so much quicker and easier, but still completely delicious.

 


Roast beef brisket

The traditional Sunday roast is the gift that keeps on giving! Tear up leftover slow-cooked meat and freeze for another day, then reinvent it in a Thai-inspired salad with crisp veg, rice noodles and nam jim dressing; throw into a rich pasta sauce for a cheat’s ragu; or just pack it into baguettes with a sharp Cheddar and hot English mustard for those nights you really can’t be bothered cooking.

 


Gnocchi

Making your own gnocchi is a little laborious, but so satisfying – and being able to freeze them for another day makes it worth the effort on a Sunday afternoon. To freeze, lay them on a tray in a single layer until frozen, then transfer to bags or containers. Cook from frozen, then serve with pasta sauce or simply a little wilted spinach and grated pecorino.

 


Pie filling

A good pie filling takes minimal effort to make, but pays massive dividends in future meals. Use whatever meat you like, sneak in some extra veggies (we won’t tell the kids) and freeze in portions. This can then be wheeled out to make traditional pies or in ramekins with a pastry lid; top with mashed potato and grated cheese for shepherd’s pie; or simply serve as a casserole with a side of vegetables and a little home-made garlic bread.
