Winter Meal Prep Made Easy: Make the Most of Your WX Refrigerator

Now that we are in the colder months, many of us are looking for ways to stay warm and cosy while still eating healthy, home-cooked meals. One way to make winter meal prep easier is to make the most of your freezer. With a little bit of planning and preparation, you can fill your freezer with delicious, nutritious meals that will keep you satisfied all winter long.

Better yet, the Mitsubishi Electric WX French Door Refrigerator Range features a unique Versa Freezer Drawer in addition to a large Freezer Drawer. You can enjoy extra space and preserve food quality without losing texture and taste, making storage more convenient and preparation a breeze even while food is still frozen!

Here are 8 winter meal prep ideas to help you make the most of your freezer drawer:

1. Soups and Stews: Soups and stews are the perfect winter comfort food, and they freeze well too. Make a big batch of your favourite soup or stew and freeze individual portions for easy, warming meals. If short on containers, soft freeze as one and scoop proportions as needed.

2. Casseroles: Casseroles are a great way to use up leftovers and make a big batch of food at once. Make a hearty casserole with in season vegetables and freeze for a quick and easy dinner.

3. Chili: Chili is another classic winter dish that freezes well. Make a big pot of chili and you’re sorted for a cold night in when a warming kick of spice is desired.

4. Meatballs: Meatballs are a versatile freezer food that can be used in a variety of dishes. Make a big batch of meatballs and freeze them for use in spaghetti, meatball subs, or as a protein in a hearty winter salad. Soft freeze pasta sauce while you are at it for added convenience.

5. Breakfast Burritos: Make breakfast prep easier by whipping up a batch of breakfast burritos with scrambled eggs, sausage or bacon, and your choice of vegetables. Wrap them up in foil and freeze until ready for the sandwich press for an easy breakfast on-the-go.

6. Roasted Vegetables: Roasted vegetables are an easy and healthy side dish that can be made in advance and frozen. Roast a big batch of winter vegetables like carrots and parsnips and freeze for a future meal. With Hot Freeze, there is no need to cool before freezing.

7. Lasagne: Lasagne is a classic comfort food that can be made in advance and frozen. Make a big tray of lasagne packed with vegetables and freeze it in portions for a quick and easy dinner or hot lunch. By using Supercool Freezing Mode to rapidly freeze your dish the original texture and flavour will be maintained.

8. Freezer Smoothie Packs: Make breakfast and snack prep easier by making freezer smoothie packs with your favourite fruits and vegetables. Blend the ingredients together and soft freeze for an easy, healthy smoothie any time of day.

To make the most of your freezer drawer, you need a high-quality refrigerator that can keep your food fresh and organised. The Mitsubishi Electric WX French Door Refrigerator is the perfect appliance for winter meal prep, with features that make it easy to store and access your frozen meals.

Versa Drawer - lock in taste, texture and freshness

Supercool Freezing
Ensures food is frozen evenly so only the finest ice crystals are able to form, preserving the freshness and texture of food and locking in maximum flavour.

Hot Freezing
Place just-cooked food straight into the freezer for added convenience, to save time and preserve the quality and freshness of the food.

Soft Freezing
Store food for up to three weeks in a ‘soft’ state. Pasta sauces, soups or a smoothie mix are soft enough to scoop out portions, meat can be easily cut without thawing and leftovers can be preserved for longer.
