Did you know, if you omitted meat for one meal, you’d save:

  • Enough carbon emissions to boil a kettle 388 times

Ingredients For Our Vegan Meal Prep Recipe

For the vegan meal prep:

  • 2 x 400g packs firm tofu
  • 1 400g can chickpeas
  • 1 tbsp. Coconut Oil
  • 1 tbsp. paprika
  • 200g asparagus
  • Pinch sea salt and pepper
  • 1 large sweet potato
  • 1 tbsp. flour
  • 1 tbsp. Organic Maca Powder

For the avocado cream:

  • 2 small ripe avocados
  • 2 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1-2 tbsp. cold water
  • Pinch sea salt and pepper

For the protein balls:

Method

1. Preheat oven to 200°C or 180°C for fan-assisted.

2. Peel sweet potatoes and cut into skinny fries, then parboil for 10 minutes. Drain well and leave for a few minutes to release moisture, then sprinkle over a little flour and 1 tbsp. maca powder. Bake for 20-25 minutes on the top shelf of the oven.

3. Whilst waiting, heat a large pan on a medium to high heat and add coconut oil, chickpeas and asparagus. Fry for 7-8 minutes and then add the tofu. Fry for a further 3 minutes, tossing occasionally and add paprika, salt and pepper and fry for 2 more minutes.

For the avocado cream:

1. Add all ingredients to a blender and process until smooth and creamy. Place into a small Tupperware box to add to your meal prep once you’ve warmed it up again.

For the protein balls:

1. Combine the Vegan Blend and Instant Oats in a mixing bowl. Add the nut butter and syrup, mix, and gradually add the milk until you can roll the mixture into balls. Roll the balls in chia seeds and pop into plastic tubs to bring with you for a healthy snack!
