Cook With Me- Prepping 3 Meatless Freezer Meals

This week on Sunday Night Live with Ruth Ann, over on my Facebook Page, we are prepping 3 vegetarian freezer meals.

Lentil soup, Twice Baked Potatoes, and Easy Mac N Cheese are on the prep menu for Sunday night!

I will be doubling all these recipes. This way I will have 2 pots of soup and 2 meals of mac n cheese, plus 16 potatoes (32 halves stuffed).

You will need the following:

  • Tin foil
  • 4 large Freezer Bags
  • Bag holders (optional)
  • 2 to 4 tin trays with lids (you can wrap with tin foil) or 2 casserole dishes. 
  • 2 Large mixing bowls (for mixing potatoes and Mac n cheese)
Lentil Soup 
  • 2 cups Lentils, Brown
  • 8 cups Water
  • ¾ cups dice Onion
  • ½ cups dice Celery
  • 1 cup diced Carrot
  • 2 teaspoons minced Garlic, Cloves
  • 2 teaspoons Salt
  • ¼ teaspoons Black Pepper
  • ½ teaspoons Oregano, Dried
  • 15 ounces Diced Tomatoes, Canned
  • 2 tablespoons Red Wine Vinegar
  • ¼ cups chop Parsley, Fresh (optional, can be added when cooking)

Combine all ingredients in a large freezer bag and freeze. Place in slow cooker and add 4 more cups water. Cook on low 6 to 8 hours.

Easy Mac n Cheese
  • 1 box Macaroni (cooked)
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese cubed or grated
  • 1 can Cream Mushroom soup 
  • 1/4 onion diced (optional)

Combine all ingredients and store in Freezer bag, tin tray or casserole dish (see video). Thaw overnight then Bake at 350° for 35 minutes.

Twice Baked Potatoes
  • 8 Russet Potatoes (wash and bake at 400° for 45 min to 1hour)
  • 1/2 cup salted butter (melted)
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup Cheddar or Jack cheese (or a mix of both), plus more for topping
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 tsp seasoned salt

Bake potatoes at 375° for 1 hour. Let cool and scoop the potato out of skins.

Have all potato ready in a bowl to mix up. Skins can be lined up on a baking sheet for assembly.

In a bowl, combine potato and remaining ingredients. Mash to combine. 

Fill skins and wrap in tinfoil to freeze. To bake, thaw in the fridge then bake at 375° for 20 minutes, or until heated through.
