Forget about freezing leftover soup and chili, here are 21 delicious recipes that you can freeze without any cooking ahead of time! I’ve compiled a list of breakfast, lunch, dinner, and even dessert recipes that you can prepare in a matter of minutes. Simply combine the ingredients and freeze!
Here’s what’s awesome about these “no-cook” freezer recipes:
- They don’t require any cooking ahead of time so they’re super quick and easy to prep.
- They cook for the first time out of the freezer, they don’t taste like leftovers at all.
- You can take advantage of sales at the grocery store and stock your freezer with healthy food at a fraction of the cost.
What I really love about these simple freezer recipes is that they make it so easy to feed my family. I can grab something from my freezer and read, workout, or play with my kids instead.
If you’ve been reading my blog for a while now then you know that the idea of “no-cook” freezer meals inspired my three cookbooks. I’m excited to share 21 more delicious ideas below. Enjoy!
