I'm looking for ideas for vegan lunches and snacks that can be eaten cold or at room temperature.
The only microwave I can use on campus is far away from where I'll be spending most of my day, so I'm looking for things that would be good at room temperature or cold. I'm having trouble coming up with meals other than the usual salads and pb&j. I've seen this post
, but most answers involved a microwave and there has been a lot of developments in vegan food in the past 6 years.
I'm generally not
a fan of raw food or food specifically made to be eaten cold, like the grain/cold noodle salads at Whole Foods. I'm also not crazy about things that are missing a fat/creamy component. However, I'm open to all suggestions even if they don't follow these "criteria".
My meal ideas so far: mock chicken salad made with chickpeas, falafel pita sandwich, salads with beans, pasta salad, breaded tofu or eggplant.
My snack ideas so far: hummus and veggies, peanuts, roasted chickpeas, soy nuts, fruit.
Thanks for any ideas and recipes!
