In an ideal world, we eat fresh organic vegetables straight from the garden. But the real world is not ideal.
So here’s a time-saving tip:
Allocate a day where you have two hours to spare. Source fresh organic vegetables. Clean and chop. Then put in freezer boxes and freeze immediately. These are great for midweek dinners.
I use mine to make soups, and it takes 2 minutes – i.e. open the freezer, reach for a box and put in a soup pot.
Onion, tomatoes, carrots, squash, marrow, brussel sprouts, sugar snap peas, herbs (lots of herbs like parsley, basil, rosemary, thyme).
Note: I vary the content of my freezer bags and use funky items. Dill and orange make delicious, unusual chicken soup, so delicate!
Note: You can do the same for frozen fruits too. Frozen fruit boxes are a great idea! You can:
- Add green to make green smoothies
- Add yoghurt to make lassi
- Or just blend it as it is!
