If you’re looking for vegan lunch ideas for work or school, you will LOVE this roundup of 40 amazing vegan lunch recipes! So many delicious vegan sandwiches, salads, wraps, and more in just one place!
I recently had some people asking me if I couldn’t put together a roundup of easy vegan lunch ideas and here it is! It’s true. While it’s easy to find delicious vegan dinner recipes, vegan lunch is often kind of the same and it can even be a bit boring. But it doesn’t have to be like that!
There are so many delicious vegan lunch ideas that are super easy to make and that are perfect for school or work!
What to pack for vegan lunch? Some simple vegan lunch ideas:
Some of my favorite vegan lunch recipes are:
- vegan sandwiches (how does a tempeh reuben sandwich or a vegan BLT sandwich sound?)
- summer rolls (they’re packed with fresh veggies and don’t forget a delicious dipping sauce – my favorite is a peanut sauce!)
- wraps and pitas filled with greens and protein like tofu or beans (could you say no to Korean barbecue tempeh wrap? I definitely can’t!)
- vegan pasta salads (my favorites are my Greek pasta salad and my Southwestern pasta salad)
- quinoa salads with veggies and beans
- vegan fritters
Often you can just double a recipe and bring it to work for several days if you’re short on time.
This roundup also includes some meal prep recipes that provide you with vegan lunch for the week. You will also find some great vegan lunches for kids.
If you’re looking for a vegan lunch with protein, you might also like my vegan protein roundup. Or what about vegan soups? Especially in the colder months, they make an awesome and filling lunch as well!
So let’s get started with these delicious vegan lunch ideas!
