Simple tabouli and grilled cheese lunch

Mealtime doesn’t have to be complicated. I don’t always have time to make an elaborate meal–and sometimes I don’t even want one. Simple comfort foods are always welcome.

tabouli and grilled cheese

Grilled cheese is one of my favorite comfort foods. I hadn’t had grilled cheese for several years after going vegan. Then I found vegan slices. Perfect for melting. More recently, I discovered Daiya vegan cheese. It melts really well and is delicious too.

I like my grilled cheese on whole grain–I’m not a carbophobe, but I do value complex, carbs over simple ones. Whole grains have B vitamins, protein, fiber and are really healthy.

In addition to the sandwich, I nibbled on grapes and a hearty tabouli salad. Tabouli is a bulgar and is high in protein and fiber. This one was from a box, complete with parsley and seasonings. I added beans to it for flavor and nutrition.

A meal like this provides a variety of flavors and health benefits and can be made in under 15 minutes.

Do you have any quick and easy vegan meal ideas?

  1. Thanks for telling me about Daiya vegan cheese! It’s deeelish!! Now I’m enjoying grilled cheese again, that is one of the things that I had to sacrifice for the cows sake.

    For a quick easy meal, I like hummus on bread, topped with thinly slices radishes or cucumber slices. Even people who told me they don’t like radishes, like it this way. Add some walnuts, cherry tomatoes and a shredded carrot salad on the side and I am satisfied, YUM!!
