Meatless Meals for Brown Bag Lunches

MorningStar Logo

These days I don’t do a lot of brown bag lunches for my self since I am a stay at home mom. However, I do make brown bag lunches for my husband who works outside the home. While PB&J is probably the easiest option it’s also pretty boring so I am always looking for quick, easy and tasty ideas to send to send with Neil for lunch.

Idea #1:

MorningStar-brown bag- chik'n fried riceChik’n Fried Rice, Salad and Fruit. While this is enough for me I also would probably pack a few extra snacks for Neil as well.

This chik’n fried rice is simply rice, edamame, carrots and MorningStar Farms Griller’s Chik’n Veggie Patty that has been stir fried with a little soy sauce. Quick and easy! You could also simply cook up the chik’n veggie patty and add it to some leftover takeout veggie fried rice.

Idea #2:

morningstar-brown bagged - bbq chik'nBBQ Chik’n Patty with vegan mac and cheese, roasted sweet potatoes and salad.

This is a quick and easy meal that can be made from dinner leftovers. Just cook the patty up in the morning and toss with your favorite BBQ sauce and place in a microwave safe dish with the vegan mac and cheese and sweet potatoes. Heat up at lunch and enjoy with a nice green salad. Easy, healthy and tasty.

As you can see meatless brown bag lunches can be more exciting that PB&J and they take little to no time to make. Help yourself my using leftovers, prepping your lunches in advanced and if you have kids get them involved as well! You can also make your brown bagged lunch more fun by serving it up in those “fancy” lunch containers they have out now.
