These 5 work from home lunches are quick, easy to make and totally gluten free. From sandwich fillings to pasta, there's something here for everyone!
Life looks a little different these days doesn't it? Most of us are working from home and whilst that has many benefits (hello constant trips to the fridge), figuring out what to eat for lunch can be a challenge!
But never fear - I've compiled a list of my favourite vegan work from home lunches right here for you. All are nourishing and gluten free, and take 30 minutes or less to make or else can be prepped the night before and then thrown together in minutes.
So, if you're wondering what you're going to eat for the weeks ahead, let me take care of that for you. Take inspiration from these ideas and start looking forward to your lunches - after all, being able to cook a fresh and delicious lunch for yourself everyday is actually quite a lovely thing to do!
(40 mins - cook quinoa beforehand to reduce prep time to 15 mins)
This dish is my favourite for getting loads of different colours of fruits and veggies in. Containing a whopping 6 types of produce, these bowls have a hearty base of quinoa that's balanced with sweet mango and topped with toasted almonds and edamame to add extra protein. This dish also keeps well in the fridge, making it perfect for your weekday lunches.
(25 mins - prep rice beforehand)
Add an extra splash of colour to your working week with these hearty but quick bowls. Packed with protein in the form of tofu and black beans, they're delicious and fresh. So save your money and create your own salad-bar-worthy bowl at home. You're literally eating the rainbow with this one!
This delicious vegan sandwich is perfect if you're looking for something quick, healthy and incredibly satisfying. It's quick to make and protein-packed, and the white bean & artichoke spread has a really satisfying tang. On those days where you’re just craving a sandwich, grab your favourite bread and load it up with this hearty filling.
If you’re completely stumped for a work from home lunch, this Creamy Pasta with Broccoli & Mushrooms is the ultimate easy-to-make comfort food. I promise you’ll find this dish satisfying: I make it about once a week and it’s so creamy! I would never have believed that adding coconut milk to pasta could work, but it really does – you’ll see. 🙂
(10 mins - plus millet cook time (10-15 mins))
Want a salad but also want something a bit more filling? This Lemony Millet Tabbouleh is perfect: made with millet to keep you full, it contains crunchy fresh vegetables too. It stores really easily so is the ideal packed lunch.
