  1. Can you tell me on this recipe, do you mean to do each individual veggie in a bag combined in one gallon bag or can they all go together?

    1. The veggies will all go in the same gallon freezer bag together. The sauce goes in a smaller quart sized bag, and then placed inside the larger gallon bag of veggies.

  2. What would be a good substitute for okra in this recipe?
    Also, why could you not freeze marinade in with the vegetables???

    1. You might like to try asparagus, broccoli, green beans or eggplant. You could freeze the marinade with the vegetables it’s just meant to help preserve both as best as possible (freezing separately).
