Cauliflower Meal Prep 4 Ways

THE RECIPES

1. Sticky Sesame Cauliflower

2. Crispy Lemon Cauliflower

3. Cauliflower Mac And Cheese

Before I launch the blog into holiday-recipe mode this coming Thursday (vegan gingerbread, chocolate fudge bars, lemon meltaway cookies…), I wanted to devote a post to answering some of the common questions readers ask regarding meal prep of my recipes.

WHAT CONTAINERS SHOULD I USE? 

For freshness and to be environmentally friendly, I own and recommend these BPA Free Glass Meal Prep Containers.

They’re reusable and freezer-safe, with smartlock leakproof lids. The containers can be used in the oven, microwave, and dishwasher.

Applesauce Muffins

Rice, quinoa, pasta, or another grain

Steamed or roasted vegetables

Keto Muffins or Banana Muffins

Baked tofu, beans, or another protein source

Or try the Homemade English Muffins from my Hello Breakfast ebook

 

HOW LONG DO THEY LAST?

To be on the safe side, I usually freeze whatever I’m not eating within four days.

If you plan to freeze the sesame or lemon cauliflower, it’s a good idea to cut the cauliflower into smaller florets so they thaw more evenly upon reheating. The mac and cheese is fine to freeze as-is.

I don’t really recommend freezing the buffalo version simply because the inevitable texture change of freezing cauliflower is especially apparent in a recipe like that where texture is so important. But technically it can be frozen as well, and multiple readers have commented that they do it all the time and are still fine with it. So it’s completely up to you!
