How to Meal-Prep a Week of Vegan Lunches

Preparing a vegan diet meal can be a headache especially when there is little time. This also concerns the choice of recipes, which implies the choice of ingredients. If you don't have the time to prepare meals for a vegan diet, follow our mini guide for a Healthy and Balanced Eating Initiative.

Soy-lime roasted tofu

Soy-lime takes the longest to prepare of all the five base recipes. And that is why you should start with it. The ingredients for this recipe include:

  • Two packages of a 14-ounce water-packed tofu
  • Two-third cup of lime juice
  • Six tablespoons of sesame oil
  • Two-third cup of sodium soy sauce

To complete your roasted-tofu recipe, marinate a mix of its ingredients for 1-4 hours. After, subject the mix to a 450 OF preheat-oven.

Easy brown rice

The easy brown rice recipe requires just two ingredients: a cup of brown rice and two-and-half cups of water. Now, get the brown-rice recipe started by combining its ingredient in a saucepan.

Next, boil the mix for about 40 to 50 minutes. To finalize this recipe, allow the boiled mixture a 5-minute air before muddling it up.

Sheet-pan roasted veggies

For this recipe, you will need:

  • Three cups of 1-inch butternut squash cube
  • Four cups of broccoli florets
  • Three tablespoons of virgin-olive oil
  • Two square-cut red bell peppers
  • One large onion
  • Two teaspoons of Italian seasoning
  • One tablespoon of vinegar
  • One-quarter teaspoon of pepper
  • One teaspoon of salt

Now, set up your 450 OF preheat-oven. Next, roast your squash in one tablespoon of virgin-olive oil for 10 minutes. While roasting, mix the other ingredients and the remaining two tablespoons of virgin oil (barring the vinegar) into a bowl until the veggies.

Afterwards, add the roasted squash to the veggie-mix. Roast the combination for another 17-twenty minutes. Lastly, add vinegar.

Vegan cashew sauce

The cashew sauce only requires 10mins to prepare. Its ingredients include:

  • Three-quarter cup of raw cashews
  • One-quarter cup of fresh parsley leaves
  • Half-teaspoon of soy sauce
  • One tablespoon (each) of vinegar and virgin-olive oil
  • One-quarter teaspoon of salt
  • Half-cup of water

After getting the ingredients, turn it all into a bowl, and blend the mixture until it is very smooth.

Citrus-lime Vinaigrette

Vinaigrette will only take 10 minutes of your time. Its ingredients include:

  • One-quarter cup (each) of orange juice and freshly snipped cilantro
  • One-quarter cup (each) of lime juice and canola oil
  • One-eighth teaspoon of black ground pepper
  • One-quarter teaspoon of salt
  • Two teaspoons of freshly minced jalapeno pepper

After getting the ingredients, combine them into a lidded-jar.

Now, it is time to gather your lunch. The best method to gather your lunch is to get separate containers for each recipe. For the salad recipes for example, use a mason jar.
