These healthy plant-based meal prep recipes are delicious and high in protein, but most importantly: not boring. Great for packed lunches and easy weeknight dinners.
When we think of the term “meal prep”, many of us envision those uniform containers of sad quinoa, naked chickpeas, and steamed broccoli – all stacked together in the fridge, guaranteeing a week’s worth of depressing meals. The good news is, it doesn’t have to be that way.
For me, meal prep just means cooking ahead – whether it’s an entire recipe, or a component of a dish I can repurpose later in the week (like homemade pesto or baked tofu). The point is: whether I’m working from home, packing lunches for the office, or too tired to cook dinner from scratch, I know I’ll always have something waiting for me in the fridge.
Below, I’ve rounded up my favorite plant-based meal prep recipes to cook for the week. These meals are packed with whole foods, high in protein, simple to make, and reheat well. (Zero boring quinoa in sight!) Scroll on for healthy vegan meals like bowls, sandwiches, soups, and more…
