How to store Fixa Foods

What's so great about frozen?

It used to be that frozen food was all about ice cream, pizza, and processed dinners. Now frozen food is about freshness and convenience. Think of your freezer as an extension of your pantry where you store fresh food to have on hand for meal prep. Your freezer is your friend.

Why is Fixa Foods frozen?

We make Fixa Foods fresh (not cooked) and immediately freeze all of our products. This not only retains peak freshness, but it allows you to have Fixa Foods flavors on hand in your freezer for weekly meal prep. They won't be hidden in your refrigerator only to find months later.

How should I store Fixa Foods?

Keep Fixa Foods frozen to preserve freshness and have on hand for weekly meals. Here's a general rule of thumb:

  • Put in the freezer for the future.
  • Put in your fridge for the week.
  • Put on your counter for the evening.
  • Give a good stir.
  • Enjoy within 7 days of opening.
What is the shelf life?

Fixa Foods will stay in your freezer for up to 6 months, but usually it is gobbled up before then.

Once transferred to your refrigerator, it will keep about 10 days unopened.

Once opened, enjoy within 7 days if it isn't devoured in one sitting.

How to Use Fixa Foods

How do I use Fixa Foods as a dip?

Fixa Foods flavors make everything from a quick snack to a gourmet addition to your grazing boards. Open the jar, grab some veggies, chips, or crackers and dive in. Before you know it...the jar is gone! 

See our Serving Ideas page, and click "dip" in the categories to learn more.

How do I use Fixa Foods as a spread?

Fixa Foods flavors are great for spreading on just about anything like toast, sammies, pita, crackers, burgers...the possibilities are endless!

How do I make a sauce?

It's easy to turn Fixa Foods flavors into sauces for pasta, bowls, tacos, and more.

For a fast sauce:

Depending on how much sauce you want, place a few spoonfuls of your Fixa Foods flavor in a heat-proof bowl. Add a bit of very hot water and stir to your desired consistency. Serve over Buddha bowls, tacos, veggies, or protein of your choice.

For pasta:

Empty a bag of pasta into a large pot of boiling, salted water. Stir occasionally and cook for about 6-9 minutes until al dente. In a heat-safe bowl, reserve a cup or two of pasta water to mix with one-half to one full jar of Fixa Foods sauce, depending on how much sauce you want to make (leftovers are always great). For a thicker sauce, use less water, and for a thinner sauce, use more. Drain the pasta and toss with the sauce and any vegetables, protein, or toppings of your choice.

How do I make a dressing?

Fixa Foods flavors make a great base for salad dressings. Similar to a sauce preparation, place several spoonfuls of your defrosted Fixa Foods flavor in a bowl. Slowly whisk in a few tablespoons of warm water (not oil) until you've reached your desired consistency. Drizzle over your salad, toss, and enjoy!

What are some other serving ideas?

Fixa Foods helps complement what you have on hand to make your meals easy and delicious. Fix a dip for a grazing board, dress up a salad, spread it on a sandwich, or make it saucy for pasta—there’s no wrong way to fix a fresh snack or meal.

All-Natural Ingredients

What are the health benefits of Fixa Foods?

We think eating more plants is healthy for people and the planet—that's why our dips are plant-based, nut-based, dairy-free, and gluten-free. We endorse a flexible eating style that emphasizes the addition of plant-based foods, incorporates some dairy and eggs, and occasionally includes animal-based protein.

Where are the ingredients from?

We are committed to exceptional quality, honest ingredients, and the well-being of people and the planet. There's nothing artificial, no preservatives, or junk in our products. In fact, we use regionally-sourced, organic, and natural ingredients like herbs and nuts from Oregon and 100% organic extra virgin olive oil from California.

See our Ingredients page for where each ingredient is sourced.

Is Fixa Foods all organic?

Although Fixa Foods is not certified organic, we use organic ingredients and strive to source locally, regionally, and responsibly.
