Easiest Vegan Lunch Recipes

Soba Noodles & Sauce

This healthy dish is perfect for when you’re cooking for a non-vegan friend (or just want a satisfying meal). You’ll toss soba noodles with a miso sesame tahini sauce that is super easy to make. Toss the soba noodles with sliced cucumber, scallions and sesame seeds. Sprinkle with cilantro if desired and serve immediately.

Gnocchi With Mushrooms and Parsley Sauce

With a mouthwatering mushroom cream sauce, this vegetarian meal is hearty and comforting enough to satisfy meat eaters. It’s also easy enough to make on a weeknight! Cook the gnocchi in a large pot of salted water according to package instructions until they float to the surface, about 2-3 minutes. Drain and set aside. Add the remaining butter and mushrooms to a skillet and saute until lightly browned, stirring occasionally. Add garlic and oregano and a pinch of salt. Cook until the mushrooms release their liquid and slightly reduce, about 5 to 7 minutes.

Chickpea Salad Sandwiches

This vegan chickpea salad sandwich is a quick and easy lunch idea that keeps well in the fridge. It’s also a great option for weekday work meals, picnics and potlucks! It’s like a classic tuna salad sandwich but with lemony chickpeas and a dash of garlic for flavor. This high-fiber sandwich comes together in minutes and is delicious on its own or paired with chips, sweet potatoes fries, or even fresh veggies for a healthy lunch.
