Dairy-Free, Freezer-Friendly Meals for a New Mom?

Good Questions

Q: I know The Kitchn has featured several "Good Questions" regarding cooking or baking freezable meals for new moms. I am going to be doing this for a mom-to-be who is expecting her second child. Her first child had an allergy to a protein in cow's milk until he was 4 months old. This allergy meant that the breastfeeding mom could not eat any dairy products. So many make-ahead meals include cheese or creams. Besides stir-fry kits (of which I am making a few) and empanadas (of the beef variety, which I am also making) are there any suggestions out there for dairy-free freezer-friendly meals?
