Meal Prep Dinner Ideas

I love making Vegan Buddha Bowls for dinner!

They are one my favorite dishes to make it! You just need to choose different veggies, a grain and/or some tempeh cubes for extra protein!


Normally I have 6 lb total of raw different veggies for 6 servings and I love roasting them for dinner. They are easy to make it and taste delicious.

Perfect for meal prep! You just need to heat up the next day. To do that, I throw the veggies in the oven and broil for a couple minutes, this way they come out crispy again.

For the veggies I add avocado oil (better for high heat) 🥑 and season with salt, pepper, cayenne, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika or for the squash I like adding curry powder, cinnamon, salt and pepper. It tastes delicious!
Normally I roast them between 30 to 40min at 425F, but it depends what kind of veggie it is.

For Brussels Sprouts, for example, I put them into a bowl and mix it with 1 Tbsp avocado oil, cayenne, garlic and onion powder, mushroom seasoning blend from Trader Joe’s, black pepper and salt for taste. 😋 I roast them on 425F oven for about 30 min or until they get crisp on the outside.

For the tempeh, I like to cut it into cubes and soak them in coconut aminos and a bit of liquid smoke for bacon flavor. 😉 Then, I add them to a pan with some olive oil and cook for about 5min, rotating them to not burn.
When my veggies and tempeh are ready I add some cooked grains.

This bowl I roasted butternut squash, Brussels Sprouts, onions, colorful carrots, and a whole head of garlic! For the grain, I used black wild rice and topped with fresh cilantro, and a tablespoon of my Homemade Vegan Habanero Mayo! Recipe for this mayo you’ll find in my condiments/salad dressing posts. 🥰🌶
