It’s the end of a long day and your brain has no fuel left to think about what to whip up as a side dish to go with the delicious meal you’ve planned for dinner. Does this ever happen to you? If so, take note of some nifty freezer hacks we’ve got up our sleeves.
Beetroot salad with lentils, spinach and goat’s cheese
Instead of: roasting and peeling beetroot
Rather try: cooking McCain Diced Beetroot on high in the microwave within minutes.
Pumpkin bread rolls with sage butter
Instead of: peeling, deseeding and cutting up a whole pumpkin
Rather try: boiling McCain Pumpkin Chunks for 5 minutes before mashing.Cauliflower gratin
Instead of: cutting up the cauliflower into florets
Rather try: popping some McCain Cauliflower Florets into a large bowl of boiling, salted water for 3-4 minutes.
Roasted zucchini with corn and almonds
Instead of: spending time having to cut kernels off the corn cobb
Rather try: Microwaving some McCain Sweet Corn
Buttered baby carrots with herbs and pumpkin seeds
Instead of: spending time cleaning the baby carrots
Rather try: cooking them straight from frozen in boiling water for 5–5½ minutes
