What a great way to add leafy greens to your lunch. Instead of a processed wheat wrap or flatbread you can use some collard green leaves to make a fresh and crunchy wrap. You won’t even notice the difference.
Brown Rice Sushi
If you’re a fan of egg salad sandwiches then this is the perfect substitute. Mashed chickpeas make a great sandwich filling when combined with a few secret herbs and spices. All on top of some fresh sourdough.
Tempeh is one of my favourite lunch options. It’s hearty enough to fill you up and can easily be swapped into classic BLT recipes. This BBQ tempeh sandwich is as good as lunch gets.
Turmeric Chickpea Salad Sandwich
Buddha bowls have really taken off in the last few years. Really it’s just delicious leafy greens with a bunch of other veggies and legumes. Add some rice underneath and some tofu on top for an insanely nutritious meal.
Ginger Peanut Tofu Wraps
If you don’t have time to prepare lunch at work there is no easier make ahead meal than salad jars. Chuck all your favourite ingredients into a jar and it’s ready to go from the fridge in the morning.
Lettuce Cup Tacos
I find salads can get a bit repetitive so it’s important to mix them up. Adding quinoa or another grain is an easy way to make a salad into more of a meal. And nobody does salad better than the mediterraneans.
Rainbow Summer Rolls
Lettuce cups make amazing taco shells. They have the crunchiness of a hard taco yet the freshness really goes well with the spicy seasonings. This is a really easy way to make lunch a bit lighter and healthier.
Vegan Meatball Sub
Summer rolls are an awesome fusion of Vietnamese flavours. Using lots of different vegetables makes them a balanced meal and the variety of colours makes them look absolutely amazing.

A classic meatball sub is a popular lunch choice, but this plant-based version is the next level. By using legumes and mushrooms to make the balls they are much lighter and won’t leave you sleepy after lunch.
Meditteranean Quinoa Salad
There isn’t much more tasty than a slice of fritatta with some salad on a summer day. Chickpea flour gives a delicious flavour and also a great texture and firmness. Add your own mixture of vegetables to customise to your taste.
BBQ Tempeh Sandwich
Burritos are a classic easy lunch option. You can make a big batch of bean chilli which will last for ages, and even prep the fresh ingredients ahead of time. Then just fill a wrap with all your favourites and you have a fast and tasty lunch.
There are so many different options and flavours for wraps that you could easily have a different variation everyday. This tofu and vegetable wrap has a great Asian flavour that is nice and crisp.
Greek Pasta Salad
Not many meals lead to more regret than a large pizza. But there is no need for regrets with this recipe. Top a tortilla with fresh tomato and vegetables for a pizza you can enjoy without guilt.
Quesadillas are traditionally cheese filled feasts. But this lighter version makes a perfect plant-based lunch. These are held together with a delicious black bean mix and complemented nicely with delicious vegetables and spicy salsa.
Tortilla Vegetable Pizza
If you want to skip the heavy carbs like rice, there is no better substitute than some minced cauliflower. Add a bunch of other vegetables and some nice seasonings and you have a great lunch or side dish.
