I have read this article and it kinda made me sad. I work in office and I have a 30 mins break for lunch. The nearest vegan restaurant is 20 mins away. Actually any nearest restaurant is 20 mins far away.
Maybe you have the same problem. Maybe you are just lazy to cook huge portions for 2 or 3 days like me. Or you have been for dinner outside and haven’t buy anything for next day. Or you are just superbusy at work and you have time to go just to the grocery to buy something quickly.
You know what? You don’t really have to eat this! Before I became vegan, I had exactly the same silly ideas. Sausages in microwave, chinese instant soups all the time, or instant noodles ala <enter your favorite flavour>.. And then my stomach did hurt, I had no energy and I was getting fat.
But I can tell you something. It’s easy to prepare something at your company kitchen.
All you need to have still there are: salt, pepper, microwave, good quality ketchup & a common mustard, vinegar, your favorite (soy) butter and bit of water to wash the food.
The ingredients for your tasty lunch you can buy on your way to work in the morning or during your lunch break.
Let’s start with the 5 min recipe: VeganBurger and Nachos
1 pc of smaller wholemeal baguette or whatever kind of pastry you like
1 smaller tomato
1/2 of tofu block
piece of cucumber
1 spoon of mustard
1 spoon of ketchup
1 pack of your favorite nachos (for lunch I use like 1 smaller cup, but you can share the rest with your colleagues – they will like you 🙂 )
5 min process:
If you bought a whole tofu, slice it in the half. Add bit of salt and pepper and warm it for 1 min in the microwave. Meanwhile cut the pastry in the half. One half spread with mustard, the other half spread with ketchup. Slice tomato and cucumber and add the slices on the halfs. Between put the half of tofu. Rest of the tomato and few slices of cucumber use as a pretty decoration for your plate. Add a bit of nachos as a side dish – instead of fries or potatoes. Voila. In 5 mins you created a lunch worthy of kings.
