In need of some new ideas for your vegan meal prepping? Try out this Chickpea Tikka Masala meal prep! Ready quickly and it’ll have you looking forward to lunch all week.
Back to school may look a little different this year, but the feeling of it is here. So to help with the craziness that is this time of year, I’ll be highlighting a bunch of my favorite meal prep ideas this week! First up…tikka masala!
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 knew 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!
