A Day of Vegan Meal Prep Recipes

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Silk. The opinions and text are all mine.

Who’s ready to PREP SOME MEALS?!! Okay, let’s be honest, I’m never *that* excited to meal prep. I used to do it every week, but now it’s much more sporadic and on-the-fly. Now that school is back in full force, though, I really need to incorporate some more meal prep in my life – just for the sake of saving time and money! Because who doesn’t love that? 💸

This post has four vegan meal prep recipe ideas that will show you that you don’t need to spend 8 hours on a Sunday slaving away in your kitchen to get ready for the week. I ain’t got time for that, fam! These recipes will show you that you can take a couple basic recipes and transform them for each meal into something new & exciting.

One ingredient I used in every recipe: Silk Unsweetened Almondmilk! An absolute staple in our fridge. It’s just like all of these vegan meal prep recipes – simple and versatile! It’s the perfect recipe for both sweet and savory recipes, and it makes everything super creamy.

I love partnering with Silk because we have the same values in creating delicious, dairy-free and sustainable food that people will love! And I know you guys are going to love these meal prep recipes, especially all of you busy students, moms and working people out there.

Overnight oats are a meal prep staple! You can use this simple recipe as the base for whatever flavor combo you’re craving and whatever’s in season – banana peanut butter, chocolate chip, pumpkin pie, and so much more. I usually make three at a time and keep them in the fridge.

BREAKFAST: Blueberry Pie Overnight Oats

  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup Silk Unsweetened Almondmilk
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon groun cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1 date, chopped, or 1/2 tablespoon maple syrup
  1. Place all ingredients in a jar; let sit in the fridge overnight, or at least 4 hours.
  2. When ready to eat, top with nut butter, coconut, fruit, or other toppings.

The great thing about these lunch and dinner recipes is that they’re built around the same recipe – the Black Bean & Rice Burrito Mix! You can do so much with a simple bean & rice combo – bowls, salad, tacos, wraps, sandwiches, etc. Just make a big batch of this burrito mix at the beginning of the week, and you can prep easy lunch & dinners!

The same goes for the Avocado Cilantro Sauce! Make it once and enjoy it on everything. Multi-purpose recipes are the BEST.

Black Bean & Rice Burrito Mix

  • 1/2 cup uncooked brown rice
  • 1 15-ounce can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 cup corn
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 1/2 bell pepper, diced
  • 1 Roma tomato, diced
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  1. Cook rice according to package directions.
  2. In a large bowl, add all ingredients. Add rice when cooked. Stir to combine.

Avocado Cilantro Sauce 🥑

  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1 cup Silk Unsweetened Almondmilk
  • 1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
  • Handful of spinach
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  1. In a blender or food processor, add all ingredients. Blend until smooth, adding more almond milk if needed for a thinner sauce.

LUNCH: Black Bean & Rice Burrito Salad

  • 2 cups spinach or romaine lettuce
  • A few scoops of the Black Bean & Rice Burrito Mix
  • Avocado Cilantro Sauce
  • Salsa

I like mixing my nut butter with some almond milk because it makes it easier to dunk in some thick apple slices. 🍎 Cinnamon gives this dip a fun twist, but you can also add some cocoa powder for a chocolate version!

SNACK: Apple & Cinnamon Peanut Butter Dip

  • 1 apple, sliced
  • 1-2 tablespoons natural peanut butter
  • 1-2 tablespoons Silk Unsweetened Almondmilk
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon cocoa powder (optional for a chocolate dip!)
  1. In a small bowl, add peanut butter, almond milk, cinnamon, and cocoa powder (if using). Stir to combine, adding more almond milk if needed.
  2. Place dip in a tupperware with sliced apples.

Here’s that Black Bean & Rice Burrito Mix again! AKA dinner is ready in 5 minutes because you already did the prep. 🏆 Roast a ton of vegetables at the beginning of the week so you don’t have to worry about cooking those when you’re super hungry.

DINNER: Black Bean & Rice Tacos with Roasted Vegetables

  • 1-2 cups vegetable of choice (Brussels sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, zucchini, carrots, etc.)
  • 2-3 corn tortillas (or however many you want!)
  • A few scoops of the Black Bean & Rice Burrito Mix
  • Avocado Cilantro Sauce
  • Salsa
  • Fresh cilantro
  1. Chop vegetables. Place on a baking sheet, season with salt & pepper, and bake for 20-40 minutes at 375F, depending on the vegetable you choose.
  2. Fill the corn tortillas with the burrito mix, avocado cilantro sauce, salsa, and cilantro. Serve with the roasted vegetables.

Is there anything more relaxing at the end of the day than a few squares of reeeeeally good dark chocolate? I like to wash it down with a glass of Silk Unsweetened Almondmilk with a splash of vanilla and a few drops of stevia extract. Puts me right to sleep!

DESSERT: Dark chocolate squares and a glass of almond milk!

I hope you all enjoyed these vegan meal prep recipes! This is just an example of a day of easy, simple, budget-friendly recipes that don’t take hours to prepare or require fancy ingredients. I mean really, we basically just used oats, beans, rice and vegetables – the cheapest foods on the market!
