Basically, I'm looking for freezable recipes that are easy to heat up. A couple of my friends are vegan/vegetarian, and so feeding people can sometimes be difficult, since our house is all omnivorous.

Not one that needs reheating, but homemade hummus freezes well.

I find most veggie/vegan recipes freeze well, we usually have these 2 in our freezer though..

vegan chilli

Ingredients -
1 onion
4 different tins of beans/chickpeas/lentils etc
garlic to taste
small tin of tomato puree
carton passatta
chilli powder

Method -
Fry the oinion and garlic with 1tsp of chilli powder, till it's soft.  Add the passatta, tomato puree, beans and some waste it needed.  Taste and add more chilli if needed, or sugar/ketchup if it tastes too sour, if it's too chilli-y then add some cubed cooked potato.  Cook for 20ish minutes until yummy.


Potato and Lentil Bake

Ingredients -
Enough peeled and sliced sweet potato, potato and carrot to fill the oven proof dish you plan to use (we generally use one sweet potato, 2 potatoes and 1 carrot, which makes 3 servings)
1 leek
2 crushed garlic cloves
2 stock cubes
red lentils
oil

Method -
Steam the veg until it's parboiled.  While thats going on cut the leek into small pieces and fry in oil with the crushed garlic until it's soft and caramelised.  Layer the ingedients into an ovenproof dish, a layer of leeks, a layer of lentils, a layer of veg, until the dish is full.  Make up stock cubes, we use the water from steaming the veg to do this, pour over the bake until the veg are completely covered and gently shake the dish about a bit to distribute the water.  Bake for an hour, or more, the more you cook it the yummier  it becomes!
You can either leave this is the container and defrost/reheat all in one go, or put it into separate portions then freeze.

I like to keep some tamales in my freezer.  I vary the fillings based on whatever's at the market when I make them, but more or less base them on the recipe here: http://joyouslyalivegoesvegan.blogspot.com/2007/10/tamales.html

I have frozen my recipe for balsamic pasta and beans many times and it always thaws well if I just nuke it in the microwave for a few minutes.
The recipe is here: http://limabeanlover.wordpress.com/2010/07/07/recipe-balsalmic-pasta-and-beans/
