Vegan meal prep is now officially a thing. The idea is to create make-ahead plant base meals, portioned out, for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Sometimes snacks and desserts are part of this planning ritual. As we all know, planning meals ahead takes the stress out of the daily “what to make” dilemma and makes for smart food shopping, too.
While there are plenty of recipes and ideas for vegan meal prep online, sometimes it’s nice to hold a book in your hands. It’s somehow less overwhelming. Enter Vegan Meal Prep: Ready-to- Go Meals and Snacks for Plant-Based Eating by JL Fields. Says JL:
“In my latest cookbook, I have taken the concept of bulk cooking and turned it into a method for meal prep. With very — I mean very — simple recipes and a twist of flavor instruction to flex your culinary muscles, I’m helping you set up meals for the week … I took a macrobiotic cooking class early on as a new vegan and it’s there where I learned how simply using rice vinegar and low-sodium tamari or soy sauce can add depth to simple soup and bean recipes. And, yes, even straightforward vegetables.”
