    Default Freezer food/snacks for a gluten free new mama.

    So my BFF had her beautiful baby girl on Monday and I want to take her some freezer stuff but my go too things are usually lasagne etc...plus it's heading into hot weather here so soups and casseroles aren't really appropriate - I was going to make a little batch of pumpkin soup though and was thinking some little frittatas in mini muffin trays so she could have a one handed snack/lunch but other than that I'm having brain freeze.
    If anyone has any freezer friendly GF recipes, sweet or savoury, main meal or snack it would be MUCH appreciated!

    Hi misskitty,

    There's a few easy substitutions with gf eating these days.

    Anything with rice is usually fine depending on the sauce.
    There are now gluten free lasagne sheets in the supermarket.
    White wings make a good sr flour for adding to quiches/veg slices.
    Could also do pasta bakes with gf pasta. Some gf people have a preference as to which pasta they prefer.

    I'll keep on thinking.

    Thanks so much - I cook for her quite often but it's not freezer stuff, so was stumped. I was thinking maybe a veggie lasagne with GF pasta, or even a layered veggie bake with chargrilled veggies.

    Is she coeliac or just eating GF? If she is diagnosed Coeliac you have to be super careful using utensils etc that have been used with wheat before. Just thought d mention it as I had to live as a Coeliac for 2 years before I got a correct diagnosis and would not have trusted food not made in my kitchen. That sounds ungrateful but trust me if it means she'll be sick for days from any cross contamination she may be the same.

    No not coeliac just eats GF, feels much better when she does.

    Most freezer food is going to be non-salady, unless it's something protein-y that one can add a salad to like the quiche or lasagne.

    Other than those, the soup, some vegetable bolognese mix, curries and stir fries. Maybe something slow-cooker?

    I'll be back after I get some more work done.

    You could do a chili/bean mix so she can make tacos, nachos etc
