Batch cooking is not only a great way to save money and time in the long run, but it also makes you feel like an adult who has just about everything figured out.

Here are nine easy-to-make (and super tasty) meals that can be stored in your freezer for later:

Lentils and rice make great bases for soups, and freeze well. Pop some coriander and cream on top to serve with a flourish.

Before frying your chicken, coat it in a spice mix using paprika, chilli powder, garlic granules, and dried oregano, or take a shortcut and use a premade one like this Schwartz's Southern Fried Chicken spice. Fried chicken actually freezes well, so leftovers can easily be saved for another time — just defrost the chicken thoroughly and bake in the oven!

Lasagne is a top-tier pasta dish, and can be adapted in so many ways to suit whatever dietary needs you may have.

Section out individual portions of your homemade lasagne and pop it into some freezer-friendly plastic tubs to enjoy later! Need some sides? Salad or garlic bread will hit the spot.

If you're not a huge lasagne fan, then a pasta bake is another versatility queen.

A fruit crumble is a thing of beauty, and they're super simple to make and can be frozen for later.
