Vegan Meal Prep Recipes | Fall Meal Prep + VIDEO

I love seeing the produce change as the season’s change––though I totally did not get enough of peach season. My local farmer’s market is bursting with Asian pears, squash, Japanese sweet potatoes, and onions. I usually buy a bunch of Asian pears to eat before breakfast, squash to roast and add in soups, and Japanese sweet potatoes to roast whole and snack on. 

This week’s meal plan celebrates the flavors and colors of this beautiful season. As always, these vegan meal prep recipes are easy to make, and include ideas for mixing, matching, and expanding the dishes. For example, I love to use the lentils in tacos, tossed with massaged kale salad, or in Buddha bowls with the roasted veggies, and beets. Speaking of beets, you’re going to love the ease of this beet recipe. The same dressing you use to make the beet salad can be used throughout the week as a salad dressing. Make a couple more dressings for a little variety––recipes suggested in meal prep. And there is a shopping list in the downloadable PDF. Okurrrr!

I hope these vegan meal prep recipes make your life a lot easier and more delicious. We all deserve to eat nourishing and delicious home cooked meals! If you’re enjoying these weekly vegan meal prep recipes, please share with your friends!
