    Just wondering if this could be frozen after being grilled? I prefer freezer meals that can just be reheated in the microwave. Do you think the veggies would get mushy?

      Christina – You can certainly give it a try. The veggies might be a tad mushy – but they will have that amazing grilled flavor. Let us know how it turns out!

    Is there a reason you can’t add the sauce to the veggies BEFORE freezing? Thanks

      You could add the sauce before freezing, but it may make the veggies a little soggy. Let us know if you do try!
