4 Easy Vegetarian Meals You Can Make From Bulk Ingredients in Your Fridge

Eating healthy is hard. Not only does it get expensive, but it also can be time-consuming if it isn’t done efficiently. As a college student almost always crunched for time and eating on a budget, I have learned a thing or two about eating healthy in an efficient way!

Here are some easy meals you can throw together from the bulk ingredients in your fridge!

Bulk ingredients (prepared/gathered before the week begins):

  • Beans (black, pinto, or kidney)
  • Brown Rice
  • Frozen veggies (a variety of stir-fry combos, peppers and onions, and your favorite other veggies)
  • Oil
  • Whole wheat pasta
  • A raw green (spinach, spring mix, etc)
  • Cheese, sour cream, avocado, salsa
  • Potatoes
  • Garlic
  • Firm tofu

Meal 1: Veggie Pasta

Prepare your whole wheat pasta, and while cooking, throw some olive oil into a pan along with garlic and frozen stirfry vegetables. Add some rosemary to season. Throw the vegetable/olive oil mixture onto your prepared pasta along with parmasan cheese. Soooo gooood.

Meal 2: Burrito or burrito bowl

Combine your beans and rice along with avocado, sour cream, salsa, and optional veggies. Yum!

Meal 3: Veggie stir-fry

Add veggies and tofu into a stirfry, Add seasoning, such as rosemary, cilantro, teriyaki sauce, etc. Serve over your pre-made brown rice.

Meal 4: Potatoes and veggie/tofu side

Preheat oven to 400. Wash/cut potatoes into cubes. Sprinkle olive oil, rosemary and garlic onto potatoes. Bake for about 60 minutes, flipping once. Add a veggie/tofu side with your frozen vegetables. Add some seasoning to spice the vegetables up.

Note: Add a side of raw salad, any vegetables, potatoes or tofu for an extra element to any of the meals above!
