This is the third installment of my meal planning edition recipe ideas. The idea is to make extra food in bulk, seal/freeze it, and enjoy it at a later time. So far the results have been amazing. In fact just today I ate my Raise the Roof Lasagna which was sealed three weeks ago and it tasted just as fresh as day one.
I purchase these convenient frozen packages from Costco but my pet peeve with them is 1) they are covered in oil, 2) there isn’t very many veggies, and 3) the portions are pretty small. So today I gave an attempt at making something similar but with no oil, more veggies, and larger portions. Overall it made 6 huge portions and was delicious.
Just for fun, the pic here is my Yakisoba on the left and Costco’s on the right.
How I Made Yakisoba?
There is a recipe at http://www.food.com/recipe/vegetarian-yakisoba-187655 but truth be told, I only used that as a reference to get the tamari (soy sauce) and vegan Worcestershire sauce ratio correct and an idea of how to cook the noodles (only boil them two minutes!). The main thing to remember is NOT to overcook anything. It’s better to have it underdone than over done. As a result of this, I simply put the veggies in to sauté (I used the instant pot) in the order from longest cooking time to shortest.
Veggies Used (and order of cooking):
Onions + Veggie broth
Medjool Date, chopped (I use this instead of sugar)
Hearts of Palm
Edamame (not pictured)
Vegan Worcestershire sauce (1T ratio)
Tamari Soy Sauce (¼ cup ratio)
Hot Chili Powder (optional, use sparingly)
Overall a very easy recipe to make. Give it a try and make extra to enjoy later.
