  • Mostly, I stock my freezer with ingredients: cooked brown rice, cooked beans, chopped vegetables, etc.

    This is usually in my freezer:

    Sweet Potato Burritos
    3 teaspoons olive oil
    1 onion, chopped
    4 cloves garlic, minced
    6 cups canned kidney beans, drained (I use home cooked black beans; you can use any bean)
    2 cups water
    3 tablespoons chili powder
    2 teaspoons ground cumin
    4 teaspoons prepared mustard
    1 pinch cayenne pepper, or to taste
    3 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
    4 cups cooked and mashed sweet potatoes
    12 whole wheat tortillas, warmed
    shredded cheese (whatever you have)
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Heat oil in a medium skillet, and saute onion and garlic in until soft. Stir in beans, and mash. Gradually stir in water, and heat until warm. Remove from heat,
    and stir in the chili powder, cumin, mustard, cayenne pepper and soy sauce. Divide bean mixture and mashed sweet potatoes evenly between the warm flour tortillas. Top with cheese. Fold up tortillas burrito style. Bake for 12 minutes in the preheated oven, and serve. NOTE: I put the cheese inside and freeze burritos wrapped in wax paper in a big zipper bag; they can be microwaved safely in the wax paper.
