Easy method for homemade mirepoix- diced onions, carrots & celery, prepped & ready! Making your own Mirepoix can help to cut down on meal prep time, particularly during Fall & Winter when soups and stews abound.
Lay them in a flat layer on a baking sheet and freeze for several hours.
Break up pieces & assemble mirepoix by combining vegetables with a 2:1:1 ratio: 2 parts onion, to 1 part celery & carrots. I usually use cups, so I'll add 2 cups onion to a freezer bag, followed by 1 cup carrots & 1 cup celery. Seal bag and gently shake to mix. Repeat the layers until the bag is 3/4 full. Seal bag and gently shake to mix more evenly once more.
Grab and use veggies as desired. Enjoy spending less time prepping dinner from now on!
I usually made 3 pan's worth- one pan each for onions, celery & carrots. Then, once frozen, they are combined using the 2:1:1 ratio into 3-4 freezer bags, ready to use in 6-8 meals total.
