Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 6 cups chopped onions
  • 4 cups chopped celery
  • 4 cups chopped carrots

Instructions

  • Heat olive oil to medium in a large Dutch oven.
  • Add onions, carrots and celery to the pan. Reduce heat to low and cook for about 10 minutes or until veggies soften while occasionally stirring.
  • Let the mirepoix cool and divide into 4 freezer bags. Label each bag. Lay bags flat in the freezer and use as needed.

Notes

I divide this recipe into 4 bags. I use one bag for each recipe that calls for 1 cup of onions, 1 cup of carrots and 1 cup of celery. You can adjust as needed but 3 cups of chopped vegetables is what many recipes call for and amounts do not always have to be exact.
