I wanted to try something fun this year, so I decided to make a  list of recipes for a weekly vegan meal plan everyone can enjoy – this week’s meal plan is dedicated to upcoming cookout BBQs and warm summer nights!  These plant based spring recipes are ones that we eat regularly on the homestead (tried & true!), and are simple and totally repeatable for cooks of any skill level.

Summer Recipes for Plant-Based Meal Prep!

I’m a meal prepper all year, but find it essential in the summer months when I don’t want to spend every day cooking.  To prep: I choose 2 breakfasts for the week, 1 snack, 2 weekly lunches, 4 dinners, and 1 dessert.  Batch cooking is a lifesaver,  so I make multiple portions of everything and prep them out for the week – I made a list of some of my favorite meal prep products on Amazon here that also help me out.  I never get tired of eating the same thing for lunch every day because I switch up the flavors each week.  If you like variety, then you can make 3 different lunches instead of just 2 recipes.  Because my husband and I work Monday-Friday 9-5 schedules, Sunday is the best meal prep day for us – but choose whatever day works best for you!  By having a few hours of prep and cooking during the week (and a few handy meal prep tools) you don’t have to spend time in the kitchen on crazy weeknights when your family is the busiest.

Vegan Summer Breakfast Recipes

I start by preparing 2 different breakfasts with 5 portions each. I divide the portions into individual containers (for overnight oatmeal) or bags (for muffins or oatmeal bars) so they are ready to go. Just heat and eat, and you have a week of meal prepped breakfasts ready.

Meal Prep Work from Home Lunches!

Similarly, I cook 2 large batches of my lunch recipes for that week.  Lunches are usually soups, so I divide them into individual meal prep containers or mason jars. I line them up in the refrigerator, so we can heat and eat during our busy work weeks!

 Vegan Summer Dinner Recipes

I always cook more than 1 portion of food for my family for the week. That way we can enjoy a meal one night, and reheat leftovers the next day!  I try to cook dinner 3 times a week, so I prep as much as I can on the weekend, but keep in mind things like salads which are better made fresh.

Kelly, Do You Just Spend All Your Time Cooking?

No, haha! I actually spend way less time cooking if I prep as much as possible on the weekend. I utilize fresh ingredients when I can, and head to the pantry for everything else. That way, we have homemade meals 3 times a day, with very little cooking time on my end. It probably takes me 3 hours total to cook 3 meals a day, for 2 people, 7 days a week! Thanks to a few of my favorite meal prep products, long-term food storage is safe and easy!


Weekly Vegan Breakfast Recipes

Each week, I like prepping one breakfast for me, and one for my husband.  I try to prep about 5 servings of each so we have ready-made brekkies that we can just heat and eat. I have a whole section of The Herbeevore where you can find simple healthy breakfast recipes.  Click the links below the images to see this week’s full recipes!  These amazing sweet or savory breakfasts are great for the whole family. Some can even be enjoyed on-the-go for a quick bite if you are running out the door to school or the office.

Weekday Vegan Work or School Lunches

Lunches for us are usually soups – but the occasional sandwich, wrap, or salad gets thrown in the rotation. I normally like cooking 2 large pots of soup on Sunday nights and divide them into jars for the week.  That way, when noon rolls around we can just heat + eat!  You can also check out my full collection of lunch recipes here.  The summer months are full of lunches made with fresh produce from the garden, and the winters we use a lot of pantry staple ingredients for satisfying flavors.

Dinners for us rotate around some great pantry staple ingredients: rice, pastas, grains, and potatoes.  I try to mix it up with the carb, protein, and vegetable selections every week.  I usually make 3 or 4 different plant-based dinners per week, and we enjoy them for a few nights in a row.

Easy Vegan Pantry Staple Recipes

These recipes are fantastic and pantry-staple friendly!  They use almost all ingredients you would have in your dry pantry or cupboards.  You probably already have a lot of these ingredients on hand already. Keeping a well-stocked pantry makes it easy to come up with delicious and healthy meals using a few staples you can rotate.  I made a list of my Top 125 Plant-Based Pantry Staples that always keep on hand. And you can browse through all my favorite pantry staple ingredients on Amazon.  By stocking up on healthy whole ingredients you can cook delicious recipes without a trip to the store!
