What vegetables can you freeze?
A wide variety of vegetables hold up well in the freezer that you can experiment with for meal and snack ideas for your family, including bell peppers, onions, corn, zucchini, broccoli, cauliflower and more.
When it comes to freezing vegetables, there are a few things to keep in mind. While some vegetables can be stored in the freezer fresh and raw, most require blanching first, a boiling or steaming process that helps preserve the flavor, color, texture and nutrients of the produce.
Cutting up larger vegetables like squash or sweet potatoes can help make the thawing process easier before using them in creamy soups or casseroles. Just make sure to wash and dry them thoroughly before freezing. In addition to individual ingredients, you can also try using your freezer to store dips made from veggies like avocado or leftover side dishes, such as mashed potatoes, roasted broccoli and asparagus.
