Vegan Lunch

Break out of your lunch routine with one of these simple, delicious mid-day dishes.
Tomato and Tofu Soup

Tomato and Tofu Soup

This warming soup leaves the pleasant tang of cilantro and garlic chives on the tongue. If you can’t find garlic chives, substitute green onions.

Sweet-and-Sour Baked Tofu Sandwiches

Sweet-and-Sour Baked Tofu Sandwiches

Stuff marinated, baked tofu into a crusty roll with crunchy cabbage, refrigerate it, then grab it on your way out the door the next morning for an on-the-go version of a Vietnamese bahn mi sandwich. 

Mexican Rice Soup

Mexican Rice Soup

This light soup (traditionally made with chicken and chicken broth) gets its body from diced avocado, which is served with tortilla strips and added at the table, along with lime wedges and freshly chopped cilantro and green onions. The heat of the soup warms the avocado and tortilla strips without turning them to mush.

Raw Kale Salad with Root Vegetables

Raw Kale Salad with Root Vegetables

Tender, long-leafed Lacinato kale works especially well in this recipe, but any variety will do if it's cut very thin and given a thorough rubdown with salt, vinegar, and oil. The grated root vegetables and maple-glazed pecans add just the right crunchiness.
