Make Meal Prep Easy With These Vegan Recipes

Making three meals a day sometimes feels beyond the realms of possible - which is why I’m relieved that meal prepping exists. Cooking meals ahead of time to prepare you for the week saves time and money and may even help you achieve the fitness goals you’ve set yourself.

Having a selection of tasty, nourishing meals in the fridge is key to preventing me from reaching for fatty snacks or ordering an expensive takeaway! Of course, these things are fine once in a while, but balance is key. To help you get started, I have put together a list of vegan meal prep recipes that are easy to cook and still incredibly delicious.

Creamy Vodka Pasta

By: MunchPost

Method: Boiling, Sautéing, Simmering

Difficulty: Beginner

There’s nothing better than tucking into a bowl piled high with pasta after a long day at work. This is one of the easiest pasta recipes you’ll ever make, and it’s just the right amount of creamy and tomatoey. Double up the ingredients to make enough portions to last you through the week. Recipe here.

Sweet Potato and Chickpea Curry 

By: Plant Based Health Online

Method: Cooking

Difficulty: Beginner

Curry is often a minimal fuss meal to make with maximum reward. Not only that, but they tend to be bursting with positive health properties from the spices to the veggies. The most time-consuming part of this meal is the 40-45 mins that it takes to simmer, but the rest is super simple. Recipe here.

Nightshade Free Nomato Sauce

By: The Irritable Vegan

Method: Roasting

Difficulty: Beginner

This pasta sauce recipe is a delicious low FODMAP alternative to tomato sauce. It uses lots of nourishing ingredients like sweet potato and pickled beetroot to achieve that vibrant red colour. Recipe here.

Roasted Aubergine New Potatoes with Barley and Lentil Salad

By: Zina Z

Method: Cooking, Roasting

Difficulty: Beginner

Remember that meal prepping can be for lunchtimes, too. Once you’ve got the veggies roasted, the rest of the recipe is to toss all the tasty ingredients together. You can make this dish even more filling by adding some plant-based chicken strips or nuggets. Make sure to double the ingredients to make this dish last throughout the week. Recipe here.

Jackfruit Pot Roast

By: Bonsan

Method: Cooking, Baking

Difficulty: Intermediate

Pot roast is not something you’d usually meal prep; however, it’s easy to do so without the meat! This vegan version uses jackfruit as the main bulk of protein, and vegan Worcestershire sauce gives the base that deep, umami flavour. Serve up with some mashed potato if you want the portions to go further. Recipe here.

Chickpea and Aubergine Curry

By: The Coconut Collaborative

Method: Cooking

Difficulty: Intermediate

What’s wonderful about curries is that they’re versatile, which means you don’t have to stick to the ingredients in this recipe; you can add whatever veggies you have leftover in your fridge. Recipe here.

Simple Chickpea Salad

By: MunchPost

Method: Tossing

Difficulty: Beginner 

This chickpea salad is another great meal prep idea for lunchtime. There’s plenty of fibre and protein in chickpeas, so this recipe will hopefully keep you satisfied and energised throughout the day. Recipe here.

Coconut Korma

By: The Coconut Collaborative

Method: Sautéing, Roasting

Difficulty: Intermediate

Who doesn’t love a korma curry?! If spice isn’t really your thing, but you enjoy curry, this is the perfect pick. Several herbs and spices are needed for this one, though it’s worth it for the flavoursome outcome. Recipe here.

Vibrant Beetroot Pasta

By: LEON

Method: Blending, Boiling, Cooking

Difficulty: Beginner

Isn’t this one of the most beautiful bowls of pasta you’ve ever laid your eyes upon?! Hear me out, the recipe uses Beetroot Ketchup for the sauce, but you need to try it before you judge. It’s sweet, rich, earthy, garlicky and is full of antioxidants thanks to the beetroot. Recipe here.

My Dads Potato Chilli Bake

By: Gaz Oakley

Method: Baking

Difficulty: Beginner

Any dish with the word ‘bake’ in it is bound to be tasty, right? This potato chilli bake is succulent, rich, and packed with nourishing plant foods from kidney beans to tomatoes. If you’re cooking for more than one, you could make a couple of these in oven dishes and pop them in the fridge for the week. Recipe here.
