Sometimes you stumble across a recipe that has you so excited for leftovers that you could just eat it all week. And those are the recipes we meal prep, friends. Because I’m on a forever quest to make vegan/vegetarian meal prep that doesn’t suck (see Stuffed Pepper Meal Prep, Stir Fry Meal Prep, Burrito Bowl Meal Prep).

So when I first made this Chickpea Tikka Masala I new it was bound for vegan meal prep infamy. The curry is so rich and creamy, perfect with a few slices of naan and a mound of rice!

INGREDIENTS

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Rice: Bring 2 cups of water to a boil in a small pot, then add rice. Reduce heat to medium/low, cover, and cook until fluffy, about 20 minutes.
  • Tikka Masala: Meanwhile, prepare the Chickpea Tikka Masala (20 minutes to make).
  • Assemble: Evenly spoon cooked rice and tikka masala into 4 meal prep containers (spoon them next to each other rather than layered to prevent soggy rice). Slice and portion naan into sealed baggies.
  • Serve: When ready to eat, microwave the tikka masala and rice for 2 to 3 minutes, until hot.
