Vegan on a Budget: Freezing Avocados and Other Stuff.

Freezing Avocados

I like to buy avocados from Costco or just way too many when they’re on sale, so we’ll start there. Slice them, pit or no pit (doesn’t seem to make a difference). They all freeze the same. One little hint though, a quick brush of lime juice keeps them nice and green.

A few general tips on freezing food:

  • Always make sure it’s cool, don’t try to freeze hot foods.
  • Label and don’t forget the date! Most things keep 3-6 months
  • It costs less to run a full freezer. Pack it in and if you don’t have enough to fill it up, freeze big bottles of water.

Other things you can freeze:

  • Nuts and seeds: Buy in bulk and freeze what you won’t use within a few weeks.
  • Bread: Sandwich bread, buns, breadcrumbs, baguettes. If you freeze baguettes, wrap in foil and bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes at 400 degrees (depending on the size of your baguette.)
  • Baked Goods: Muffins, pancakes, waffles, cookies
  • Fruit: Great for fruit that’s about to be too ripe. Freeze it for use in smoothies or muffins later.
  • Soups: Make lunch size portions and pull out of the freezer the night before.
  • Vegetables: chopped onions, carrots, celery, bell peppers; all perfect for making soups
  • Wine: Use ice cube trays and drop it in your next recipes.
  • Homemade Garden Burgers
  • Cashew Cream Just freeze in little tupperware ½ cup or 1 cup portions. A vegan staple you’ll be happy to have on hand!
