Many families and busy working singles struggle with lifestyles that make cooking every night difficult and substantially more difficult when having to cook gluten-free. It would be great to have a list of gluten-free food that would freeze well and that one could be assured would taste great when re-heated.
There are foods that generally freeze well such as rice dishes, pasta dishes, stews and soups.
When freezing cooked meats and poultry, prepare the recipe as usual, except undercook the meat. The meat will cook to some degree again when you warm it up and can get overdone if it is cooked all the way initially.
We have had tremendous success freezing cakes, brownies and cookies. In fact, we recommend that you freeze cookies before you bake for the best results.
Gluten-free cookies baked from frozen dough will amaze you! They are perfect in looks, texture and taste! And they rise just like they should, instead of spreading out into flat disks.
We aim to please, and here is a list of gluten-free meals that you can cook when you have time for those occasions when you don’t:
Arroz con Pollo w/Steamed Tortillas (Freeze the dish and steam the tortillas just before serving)
Baked Chicken w/Orange Juice
Orange Soy Chops
Asopao de Pollo (Chicken Stew)
Chicken & Meatball Fricassee
New Orleans Chicken Jambalaya
