Today we’re pairing two of my favorite recipes from the blog that have slipped under the public radar a bit. There are the crunchy almond breaded tofu nuggets which are packed with umami flavor and are surprisingly filling. Then there’s the chickpea corn salad, which is a quick combo of chickpeas and veggies, all tied together with a smoky yogurt sauce.

Basically what I’m saying is, this is the lunch you’re going to look forward to digging into all morning. The lunch you’re going to want to parade around the break room at work. Next level high protein vegetarian meal prep deliciousness, friends.

Here’s what you’ll need for this meal prep

  • Almond Crusted Tofu Nuggets: Crispy on the outside and packed with flavor. One of my favorite fun dinners! Recipe here (40 minutes to make).
  • Chickpea Corn Salad: Herby, creamy, vegetable-y. This salad has it all. Recipe here (ready in 10 minutes).
  • Veggies: I threw in a handful of veggies to balance out the meal prep – carrot sticks and a handful of spinach. Feel free to add whichever veggie you like (sliced bell pepper, broccoli, and edamame are some of my favorites!)
  • Meal Prep ContainersThese are the containers I use (affiliate link) which have separate sealed compartments for each part of the meal prep. If your containers don’t have separated sections, be sure to store the tofu nuggets in a separate container (like a plastic baggie) to keep them crunchy.
