15 Freezer-Friendly Quinoa Recipes

Author - Alyssa Rimmer

15 healthy quinoa recipes that are totally freezer friendly! From soups, stews, chilis, casseroles and burgers, your freezer will be STOCKED this winter!

Wow. It's November. Kind of hard to believe!

Anyone else feel like as soon as November hits it's all about the holidays? I'm thinking of Thanksgiving, then Christmas and then it's the New Years. Always running around, feeling busy, busy and making less and less time for healthy meals. That's where the freezer comes in.

I'm usually really bad at planning ahead, but this time of year it's critical. I love making big batches of things and then popping the leftovers in my freezer so a few days out of the week I don't even have to think about cooking.

I know many of you are feeling the same, crazy pressure this time of year and so I've pulled together 15 of my favorite freezer-friendly quinoa recipes to help give you a little dinner inspiration. From cozy soups, chunky chilis, creamy casseroles, crispy burgers, there's something for every type of tastebud. I hope you enjoy!
