They only think I ever learned when it comes to frozen stuff ending up mushy (like your veggies) is to never cook it completely. To only cook it 50% and then finish it off when you are re-heating it.

Freezer burn is caused by air hitting the food.  When you seal your freezer bags, expel all air (even going so far as to suck the extra air out before sealing).

Another trick is to run a Q-tip dipped in vegetable oil around the inside of the bag just below the zip closure before expelling the air and sealing.  The oil on the sides of the bag sticks to itself and greatly improves the seal/life expectancy of the food.

We have a vacuum sealer and that helps prevent freezer burn longer than any old bag or wrapping can.

Not sure on the frozen vs fresh veggies. But I never use frozen veggies nor do I ever really freeze any food with veggies so not sure?
