    Hey ,,I LOVE making baked tofu ,, I mix up tamari & braggs & herbs & onions and toss tofu chunks in the mix,,, bake for 45 min @ 350 degrees.
    Wondering if I can do that ,,,THEN freeze them?? I know you can freeze packs of tofu but I don't know if you can AFTER it has been baked???
    I am starting a strict vegan diet but my life is busy ,,so I am looking for things that are easy to make ahead & freeze,,,, I figure if tofu freezes I can eat it daily since I LOVE it!
    Brown Rice ,, anybody freeze that after it has been cooked??
    What about cooked black beans??
    Any ideas would be lovely - thanks a bunch

    I know beans can freeze, my mom always has a pot of beans and bean broth handy and when she goes on vacation for awhile she leaves it frozen in tuperware things.

    I suggest you try, and find out :D

    Personally, I've never liked the whole freeze-thaw process, I don't even use my freezer anymore. There's just something unnatural about it. But I totally get that you're a busy person... I dunno, try and see what happens :D

    Hope it works!! :)

    freezing tofu should be pretty straight forward... i don't know if it would change the texture like it does if it's frozen before cooking, but it would still be edible! brown rice works, too.

    digeridoodoo... eep! i would never nuke a plastic container, with or without food in it (even if it did say microwave safe)... heating any plastic could release toxic fumes, which could leach into the food. blech! and yes, before storing anything in plastic, make sure it is cooled completely!
