Need some recipes that taste nice reheated. My MIL has some health issues that affect her day to day life, so my DP and I are looking for some recipes that we could eat one night whilst popping some in the fridge and deliver the next day so she can reheat, if that makes sense?
I enjoy cooking, but have to admit that I've never really made a meal then frozen it for later I get a bit flustered about what's safe to freeze/reheat and get a bit paranoid about food poisoning. Any tips?
I find most foods in sauce taste better the day after: lasagne, Bolognese, chili, stew etc.
Also I often make a quiche, slice it and freeze flat in a freezer bag you can then take out a frozen slice for the next day. It’s a good way to freeze lasagne too!
They all taste better the next day!
If you’re worried about food poisoning go for stuff it’s really hard to fuck up
Like a lentil and chickpea curry in a tomato based sauce
Pasta with a home made pesto
That sort of thing
Will your MIL be able to cook rice/pasta/couscous for herself to go with the aforementioned curry, chilli and bolognese suggestions?
I see someone has suggested frittata. Be careful! Reheated eggs are a food poisoning risk and you can risk the frittata going rubbery.
If you’re looking for complete meals that don’t need anything extra:
Pearl barley, leek and bacon casserole www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/pearl-barley-bacon-leek-casserole
Vegetable and bean crumble www.vegetarianrecipesmag.com/vegetarian-recipes/vegetable-bean-crumble
One pot dhal www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/spinach-sweet-potato-lentil-dhal
Sweet potato and spinach bake www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/1089637/sweet-potato-and-spinach-bake
We have frozen the Hairy Bikers recipe for moussaka. If anything it was better second time around.
Summer in Winter chicken (another BBC recipe) freezes really well.
Sorry on phone so can't work out links
