Collection of 7 Lunches

7 Meatless Meals

Here are 7 meatless meals that I made for lunch and dinner for my husband and myself. They all feature plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables. One has potatoes, 3 feature rice, 1 has quinoa, and 2 has pasta. All of these were packed in my EasyLunchBoxes.

flower rice with spinach lunch

I made this meal for myself. I enjoyed eating the flower shaped rice ball. It was very easy to make and more satisfying than a scoop of rice.

Container: EasyLunchBoxes

Top Left: Salad with assorted lettuce, snow peas, carrot

Bottom Left: Sliced strawberries

Right Side: Onigiri (cooked Nishiki rice ball), sauteed spinach with a little soy sauce and sesame seeds, cherry tomatoes

Cauliflower Pistachio Pasta Lunch

This is another meal I made for myself with ingredients I had in the house.

Container: EasyLunchBoxes

Left Side: Penne, cauliflower, pistachio nuts, green bell pepper, salt, pepper, little olive oil

Top Right: Watermelon

Bottom Right: Cherry tomatoes, black olives, mozzarella balls, basil

Onigiri trio with vegetable medley

I made this meal for husband to heat up in the microwave on a night he came home late for dinner. I put the grapefruit and cashews in silicone cups so he could easily remove them before heating up the rest of this meal.

Container: EasyLunchBoxes

Top Left: Grapefruit

Bottom Left: Cashews

Right Side: Cooked Nishiki rice shaped in rice molds, sauteed zucchini, red bell pepper and snow peas with vegetable broth

Pasta Broccoli Feta lunch

Since I love pasta and feta cheese, I made this dinner for myself.

Container: EasyLunchBoxes

Left Side: Penne with a little butter, cooked broccoli and feta cheese

Top Right: Pistachios

Bottom Right: Blueberries

Pasta Potato Fruit Salads for lunch

This was a cold supper I made for my husband to eat when he came home. I made the potato salad to his specifications.

Container: EasyLunchBoxes

Left Side: Salad with lettuce, cherry tomatoes, carrot, cheddar cheese

Top Right: Watermelon and blueberries

Bottom Right: Potato salad with hard boiled egg, yellow mustard, Miracle Whip, celery, salt, pepper, and paprika

Quinoa Salad for Lunch

I made 2 of these exactly the same for my sister-in-law when we met at the zoo. She brought her 3 boys and I brought 2 nephews. I also made lunches for the 5 boys but I blogged them separately.

Container: EasyLunchBoxes

Left Side: Quinoa with black beans, red bell pepper, feta cheese, chili powder, salt, and lots of lime juice

Top Right: Snow-peas

Bottom Right: Blackberries

Rice ball zucchini lunch

This is another meal I made for my husband to heat up when he came home. The cashews and grapefruit are in silicone cups so he could easily remove them before heating the rest in the microwave.

Container: EasyLunchBoxes

Left Side: Onigiri – shaped Nishiki rice with boiled zucchini and a little butter, salt and pepper

Top Right: Cashews

Bottom Right: Grapefruit

I hope that you now have some new ideas for easy, make ahead meals for lunch or dinner.
