Reheating certain foods can be tricky. Many times over the years of learning, I’ve overcooked the pasta in a casserole or soup and had mush. Not very appetizing. Here are some simple reheating tips so your foods will look and taste better:
- Soup can be a simple but very hearty and satisfying meal. When it comes to freezer cooking, simply freeze the ingredients. Frozen soups can lose their consistency when reheated. If you make your own broth, you can definitely freeze that. Add a package of frozen broth and a package of frozen chicken broth to one jumbo storage bag and label “chicken soup”. When it’s time to eat the chicken soup, simply thaw the broth and chicken. Add your veggies the day you will actually eat the soup.
- If you find your family doesn’t like a certain ingredient after it’s been frozen, simply omit that item and add it the dish as you are cooking it for that night’s supper. My family prefers broccoli more firm. This means I add it to a recipe at the last minute whenever possible.
- If your dish calls for pasta, remember to assemble it with slightly undercooked pasta. The pasta will finish cooking when you reheat the dish.
Never worry about what's for dinner again. I've got you covered with the meal plans in the Once a Week Cooking Club. Cook once, eat all week.
