Vegan packed lunch ideas needed,.
My kids are happy with peanut butter and jam, but I can't stand the stuff.
I like M&S salads, but want to make my own.
Anyoneone got any good salad ideas assuming I'm just making for one person and don't mind batch making 2-3 days at a time?

chick peas and lentils are very versatile

I do Buddha bowls. I love them. Cooked cold sweet potato, avocado, salad of your choice, cooked tofu, flavoured rice (the microwaveable one is good and does two or three lunches), falafel, hummous, sprinkle of seeds.

Cold stir fry is another I love- rice noodles, whatever veggies, tofu, soy sauce.

Soup.

Jacket spud and beans which you can reheat in microwave.

Also, if you get the tinned mixed bean salad it's versatile to pad out any salad

This recipe is easy to halve www.sainsburysmagazine.co.uk/recipes/sides/mexican-quinoa-salad Make it with water rather than chicken stock or bone broth.
Another quinoa salad. I eat a lot of quinoa because it’s a complete protein. www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/quinoasaladwithavoca_84148
