    You can, but there will be no taste and the nutritional value will be gone from them, so pretty useless, lol.. Just eat them all now :) xx

    I often use frozen peppers in a curry or casserole and then freeze the left overs.

    Yeah I don't think freezing veggies that have already been fully cooked would give you any nutritional value - and they go so soggy and tasteless. Ok for stews and curries as jaylou says, but not great on their own.

    best thing to do with extra veggies is to 'blanch' them in hot water (just for 1 minute in boiling water), then freeze them... When you want to use them, you then cook them fully (obviously for a minute or two less as they're part cooked before freezing!)

    great if you have a load of veg that's about to turn - this heat ruins all my fruit and vegetables within days!
