RE: Portions for 1 and Freezing
Posted Monday, September 19, 2011 at 8:58 AM
I have the same problem with portions, and am tricking a few things. For example, for the Couscous Confitti salad, I leave out a few ingredients... like fresh parsley, and maybe the bell pepper. I freeze this almost complete version, and freshen it up later when I am going to consume it. WIth this recipe I sometimes add a bit of cucumber or some fresh lemon... it really is good.
There are other recipes I have found, primarily from NutritionMD, which freeze well. I currently have at least half a dozen options in my freezer.
with the Lentil and Quinoa Salad http://support.pcrm.org/site/MessageViewer?em_id=53181.0&dlv_id=56481 I freeze it without the tomato, adding that later.
The Zucchini Scramble freezes well: http://www.nutritionmd.org/recipes/view.html?recipe_id=14
The Lentil Artichoke Stew freezes well:
http://www.nutritionmd.org/recipes/view.html?recipe_id=1199 although I sometimes make it without the artichoke and add cold avocado later, when the stew has been reheated. It also works well the way it is.
The Penne with Fresh Spinich is one of my current favourites... http://www.nutritionmd.org/recipes/view.html?recipe_id=440 freezes great, with the pasta and all. I sometimes make it with Kale instead of spinach.
