These vegan meal prep recipes are healthy and delicious, but most importantly – not boring. Great for packed lunches and easy weeknight dinners!
When we think of “meal prep”, many of us envision those sad, uniform containers of plain quinoa, naked chickpeas, and steamed broccoli – all stacked together in the fridge, guaranteeing a week’s worth of depressing meals.
For me, it just means cooking ahead – whether it’s an entire recipe, or a component of a dish I can use later in the week. It’s about planning how I’d like to eat that week, then making a big batch of something (or several things) that will reheat well over the next few days.
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 14 of my favorite plant-based batch cooking recipes. They’re packed with whole foods, high in protein, and simple to make. Zero boring quinoa in sight.
