Vegetarian lunch ideas

Hi all,

I’m sorry if this post exists, I’m using the app and I can’t search through the history.

I’d like to have vegetarian lunches, which are nutritious and easy to make. The only issue is, I don’t like avocados, eggs, mushrooms or quorn (and similar products). I’m really struggling for good sandwich fillers or salad toppers.

If you have any ideas I’m all ears.

Thanks in advance,

A fussy veggie.

I don’t know where the Topics section is on the app. Hence the post. I did look for a vegetarian community, but that didn’t appear.

Hope you find something you like.

Hi, you may like tahini paste and salad sandwiches, mashed chickpeas with lemon and black pepper with mayonnaise and salad. Taste vaguely like tuna. Bought roasted red peppers on a salad with olives and cornichon. Roasted vegetable and cous cous/pearl barley or quinoa salad with a lemon and tahini dressing. Quiche.

You'd be better ditching the app and using the website whatever device you're using, then you can see everything that's available

I eat out at a vegan bakery and sometimes I have a Seitan and vegan cheese toasted panini.

Seitan is a bacon replacement and it is AKA wheat gluton.

Obviously the vegan cheese can be replaced with a cheese of your choice if you’re not vegan or if you were lactose intolerant.

But in all it does taste very similar to a bacon and cheese sandwich.

Hummus and flafel. Hummus and flafel. Hummus and flafel. Hummus and flafel. Hummus and flafel.

For a late lunch I have just had a bowl of four large carrots cut into chips and airfried with garlic powder, black pepper, onion powder. I was thinking of taking a photo, but they didn't last. Nice looking bowl is still there though.

You can try pesto pasta as well.

It takes max 15 min to cook and is really appetizing .
