The recipe can be prepared in large batches and frozen. It will keep for up to a year in the freezer, or one week in the fridge.

Freezing vitamins preserves their potency. I would recommend portioning the food into meal size servings before freezing it.

To defrost a frozen meal – put it in the fridge overnight.
