As the holiday season starts to get closer many of us might start to feel the pressure. It’s no lie it is a busy season. You probably have Christmas events to go to and have to do the holiday shopping and maybe a bit of cleaning.

I want to help, just a little bit and share with you these 5 easy vegan meals that are perfect to make and freeze.

5 easy freezer meals

Just a few notes before we start…

The soup freezes great but I would not try to freeze the chickpea crumble, you want it to be as fresh as possible, it only takes a few minutes to make.

The falafels are perfect to make in a batch and have on hand in the freezer, you can take out as many as you need and put them in the oven to thaw and heat up.

For the Chana dal curry, Chilli and Chickpea tagine it’s totally up to you whether you choose to pre-make the rice/couscous/potatoes and freeze. For me, I prefer them freshly made so I only freeze the stews and then make the rice as needed.

Chickpea and nut crumble

  • Rinse the chickpeas and pour into a pan and add 1 tbs oil, herbs and spices of choice ( *I used a pre-made spice mix I had made previously which I think had paprika, cumin, parsley, brown sugar, chili, granulated onion, garlic salt, pepper, and Himalayan salt). Let the chickpeas roast and then add the cashews and seeds. You just want to roast the nuts and seeds a little before sprinkling over the soup.
