How to store vegetables in the freezer

I know, I know, how many times are influencers and TV cooks going to keep badgering about storing vegetables in the freezer.

Well, I am another one. Honestly doing this saves you SOOOOO much money. 

My tip is to buy carrots and onions and, one night, set time aside from your current routines to keep your focus on chopping them up. Over time this will become your new habit; it does tend to get tedious like every other chore and, sometimes you feel like not doing it but, it again comes down to your lifestyle and values. I feel very strongly about limiting our food waste and, this is a great way, as you will see for yourself if you have not already done so. 

I don’t know about you? It breaks my heart when I have to throw away rotten vegetables. And sometimes, this can be the case if we do not put effort into our actions.

There have been times in the past when I have not been bothered to use up vegetables stored in the fridge or I just do not know how to cook them. It comes in handy to have them chopped up ready to use without fearing the possibility of them going to waste. It also gives you more time to think about how to use them.  

Doing so not only saves you time, saves less and it saves you money. 

I chop my carrots and onions into small cubes and place them in a freezer bag, seal it ready to use for my next meal. When it is time to use them, you will see that frost has formed inside the bag but do not be worried about that. If they are not separating, get a kitchen mallet if you have one to hand or another utensil or pan to bash them. They will then separate with great ease. 

It saves a lot of time, you will not have to worry about them not being used and going off. 

Does anyone chop up Courgettes to put them in the fridge? Or Aubergine? Is this even possible or, am I just going a step too far? If we could freeze every vegetable, think about how much less food waste we would have?

Do some vegetable vitamins get lost?
