Vegan Meal Prep Lunches: 15 Delicious Recipes

Make vegan meal prep lunches FUN with 15 easy recipes! From grain bowls to burgers to burritos and more, you’ll never get tired of these flavor-loaded meals. Gluten-free options included! 

Meal prep: I think we can all agree at times it can get very, VERY boring. While yes it is convenient to have meals pre-made for the week, I never would want to eat the same combination of grain+protein+veg for every lunch every week. I need to mix it up, and I’m willing to bet you all do, too!

Enter: my deep dive research into what makes perfect vegan meal prep lunches.

How to Make Vegan Meal Prep Lunches Fun

  1. Stick to recipes that are ready in less than an hour. No one wants to spend their entire Sunday working in the kitchen all day! The 15 vegan meal prep recipes below are all easy enough to tackle, even on a weeknight.
  2. Try to include a carbohydrate, protein, and fat in each recipe. This will insure you stay full and satisfied long after your lunch hour!
  3. Be flexible! What I love about these recipes is that they offer a lot of room for creativity. Out of kale? Sub collards or spinach instead? Out of cilantro? There’s no need to go to the store, I promise your meal will be just as delicious if you skip it.
