17 Dinners to Make with a Bag of Frozen Vegetables

I usually keep my freezer stocked with an assortment of frozen vegetables. Though I usually buy most of our everyday vegetables fresh, I use the frozen variety for all sorts of things. Frozen broccoli, for example, makes a terrific base for soup. Sometimes I even just steam it with a little butter for dinner. Frozen artichoke hearts are the key ingredient to my favorite lasagna, and frozen corn is my go-to for chowder when the fall chill sets in. The best part is that if your freezer is stocked with a few essentials like frozen peas or spinach, you can easily build a meal around them. They are healthy, inexpensive and always add a welcome dose of green. Here are some of my favorite dinners that call for frozen vegetables. They are super easy, so grab a bag from the freezer and whip one of these up for dinner tonight!
