August Exchange

From this months exchange.
Even if our group were to lose interest in exchanging and I couldn't find another set of people to trade with I would still freeze quite a bit. Veggie burgers are a great example. If your family does veggie burgers often, and I don't know a vegan family that doesn't, then perhaps making a large batch once a month a freezing portions would serve you well. Breakfast burritos also are great to make monthly. 

Even if you don't want to end up with six gallons of chili, making a double batch and waiting a week to thaw a eat the other half may serve you well. Freezing like this is all about reducing overall cooking and prep time. You can scale up or down according to your needs, freezer space, and interest.

This month we exchanged:
Zucchini Carrot Muffins 


  1. Have you found anything vegan that doesn't freeze well? I see that earlier on the blog you mention rice - anything else? thank you!

    1. Cooked potatoes (white not sweet) can have have a grainy texture after freezing. Pasta is a toss up as well. Both pasta and rice depend on the dish. (Some turn out just fine.) With any thawed dish you are going to lose some of the crispness that you would get in a fresh dish. But for me it is a trade off for convenience.
