What Does a Vegan Eat? Lunch Edition

I bring you the second post of the "What Does a Vegan Eat?" series. Lunch can be tricky sometimes. During the work week, it has to be portable, delicious, and just the right amount of filling without being too heavy or likely to induce a food coma. Nap time follows lunch time, but unfortunately for me, nap time is only permitted for students.

During the cooler months, soup makes a great lunch. So easy, yummy, filling, warm, comforting! I love soup; I make at least one a week during winter.

What are some of your favorite lunches?

  1. I had soup for lunch today, too! It was a canned Amy's soup (lentil vegetable) that I served over about 1/3 cup cooked rice. You're right, soup is perfect for overcast grey skies.

  2. I love those lettuce wraps with hoisin mustard tofu.

  3. Jackie - Soup is so great! It can be warm and yummy and comforting while still packing a lot of nutrition!
    Vegan in Brighton - They were so good! I was still weaning my way into tofu when I made these, but I loved them!

  4. Certainly going to be making these soups, I love soup!
