Vegetarian and Vegan Meal Ideas

Are you a vegetarian or a vegan who's struggling to come up with meal ideas? Look no further! We've compiled a list of delicious and eco-friendly meal ideas that will leave your taste buds happy and your conscience clear. Plus, we've included some of our favorite Two Pillars products that will make cooking and storing your meals even easier.

1: Lentil soup 

This hearty and nutritious soup is perfect for a cold day. Start by sautéing onion, garlic, and carrot in a large pot with some olive oil. Then add lentils, vegetable broth, canned tomatoes, and your favorite herbs and spices. Let it simmer for about 30 minutes, and voila! Don't forget to cover your pot with the Duo Cover® to prevent any messy splatters in your microwave.

2: Tofu stir-fry 

This classic Asian dish is a great way to get in your protein and veggies. Marinate some cubed tofu in soy sauce, ginger, and garlic, then stir-fry it with your favorite vegetables (we recommend broccoli, bell peppers, and snap peas). Serve over rice and top with some chopped peanuts and green onions. And when you have leftovers, store them in the ZipBag® for a plastic-free and eco-friendly storage solution.

2: Chickpea curry 

This flavorful curry is easy to make and perfect for meal prep. Sauté onion, garlic, and ginger in a large pot with some olive oil. Then add curry powder, canned tomatoes, coconut milk, and chickpeas. Let it simmer for about 20 minutes, and serve over rice or with some naan bread. And don't forget to cover your pot with the UniLid® to keep your curry fresh and prevent any spills.

3: Vegan burrito bowl 

This colorful and satisfying meal is perfect for lunch or dinner. Start by cooking some brown rice or quinoa. Then, layer on some black beans, roasted sweet potatoes, diced avocado, corn, and salsa. Top it off with some cilantro and lime juice, and you're good to go! And when you're on-the-go, take your burrito bowl in the ZipBag® for a convenient and reusable container.

4: Caprese salad 

This simple and refreshing salad is perfect for summer. Layer on some sliced tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, and basil leaves. Drizzle with balsamic vinegar and olive oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. And when you're done, clean up with the Swedish Dishcloth, the perfect, all-natural substitute for paper towels and cleaning cloths.

We hope these meal ideas have inspired you to try something new and delicious. And with Two Pillars' eco-friendly products, cooking and storing your meals has never been easier or more sustainable. Happy cooking!
