10 Vegan Meals To Prep For The Week

These vegan meals are easy to prep, and save time, money, and the planet, too!

Not got a lot of time to cook? Hate making multiple visits to the supermarket? Not a fan of food waste? Pre-prepping vegan meals is the solution to all your problems!

As you probably know, veggies and carbs stay fresh much longer than meat or dairy. So if you chop up some potatoes and onions, and boil some rice or pasta, you can keep them fresh in the fridge or freezer for a few days without worrying you’re going to get sick.

But…how much do you actually know about prepping vegan meals? Here are a few of my own top tips.

Vegan Food Prep Tips

Invest in good containers

You’ll need something airtight. And preferably not plastic. Look for glass containers instead.

Use frozen if need be

No fresh broccoli or peas on hand? No worries, frozen is fine!

Buy in bulk

It’s not only cheaper to buy things such as quinoa, lentils and rice in bulk, but you’ll save on packaging, too.

Use your freezer

Want your vegan meal prep to be as fresh and as quick as possible? Use the freezer! For example, if you’ve got leftover rice or lentils right now, freeze them in small batches. That way, you can pull them out when you need them. Like, to add to a burrito or sushi bowl.

Whether you’re looking to prep your work lunches or you need a ready-to-go breakfast, check out these vegan meal prep recipes below for healthy options that last!

5. Tempeh Taco Salad Meal Prep Bowl

Forget about beef, chicken or fish! Tempeh is also perfect for tacos! This recipe makes three hearty bowls. If you need more than three lunches, just double the ingredients, of course. A note about avocado: as we all know, they don’t last long. So if you love some avo on your tacos, be sure to add it just before eating.

PS: This is one of my favourite vegan meals to prep for girl dinners!

7. Vegan Sushi Bowl

A good sushi bowl is one of my favourite vegan meals to prep! It’s gluten free, of course. But is still quite filling. This will last in the fridge for around 4-5 days. Just be sure to hold off adding the mayo until you’re ready to eat the whole shebang.

8. Vegan Korma

For this delicious, savoury meal, you’re basically going to do 3 things. One, prep the veggies and tofu. Two, prep the sauce. And three, make some rice. Store those in the fridge and throw them together whenever you’re hankering for lunch or dinner. Easy, and also one of the tastiest vegan meals to prep, if you ask me!

9. Fiesta Mason Jar Salad

Salads are so healthy. But the fact is, the healthier they are, the bigger the pain they are to make. Why? Because you’ll need to wash and chop more ingredients if you really want to ‘eat a rainbow’ of nutrients. So why not make life a bit easier? Salads are one of the easier vegan meals to prep. This one comes packed with quinoa and beans for protein, as well as loads of colourful veggies and a touch of Mexican flavour.
