Meal Prep Vegan Superfood Bowl
(makes four servings)

  • 8 oz (250 g) package of microwavable quinoa (or 2 cups/125 g cooked)
  • ½ cup (120 g) of hummus
  • 2 Tbsp fresh lemon or lime juice
  • 5 oz (140 g) package of baby spinach, rinsed
  • 8 oz (225 g) package of cooked refrigerated baby beets (produce section)
  • 1 cup (140 g) frozen shelled edamame, thawed
  • One avocado (slice right before serving)
  • ¼ cup (30 g) unsalted toasted pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
  • Prepare the quinoa according to the package directions.

While the quinoa cools, make the dressing: whisk together the hummus and lemon/lime juice. If it’s too thick, drizzle in a few drops of water to thin to your desired consistency. Set aside.

Divide the spinach among four reusable containers. Add a quarter of the quinoa, beets, edamame, and pepitas to each container.

When ready to eat, top each serving with ¼ of the hummus dressing and toss well before adding ¼ of the avocado, cut into slices.


I hope this recipe makes your lunches more accessible and more delicious.
