You will need a vegetable juicer to take full advantage of these vegetarian meals. Click here to browse and check out current pricing.

vegetarian meal prep recipes for you! brussels sprouts, kale, lentils, sunflower seeds.

Step up your vegetarian meal prep with: Pan seared brussels sprouts with lentils and kale

1/2 Cup          Brussels Sprouts, cut in half

1/4 Cup          Kale, peeled away from the stem

1/4 Cup          Lentils

3/4 Cup          Water

1/4 Ea             Sweet Onion, diced

1/4 Cup         Sunflower Seeds, toasted

1 Tbsp            Garlic, chopped

1/2 Ea             Lemon, juiced

1/4 Tsp           Cumin

To Taste         Salt

In a small pan, sweat your onions and garlic with olive oil. Once these vegetables become tender, add your cumin, sunflower seeds, salt, and lentils.

Saute these ingredients until the lentils start to brown slightly. This will add a layer of toastiness to your lentils and change the dynamic of their flavor.

Add the water and simmer for 15-20 minutes, or until the lentils are tender.

In a separate pan, heat grape seed, safflower, rice bran, or canola oil with the Brussels sprouts laid face down in the pan.

Season with salt and leave unmoved until you start to see the edges of the Brussels sprouts rich in a caramelized color. Throw the kale on top and start to toss or stir the vegetables in the pan.

Turn off the heat and add the lemon juice for acidity and to shock the temperature of the pan, to slow down the cooking and heat transfer.

Immediately remove from the pan. This will leave the tops of the Brussels sprouts somewhat raw.

This will ensure maximum nutrient retention (since nutrients degrade in the cooking process), leaving your Brussels sprouts and kale full of life and nutrients!

green quinoa with kale! these vegetarian meal prep recipes are to die for!

Vegetarian meal prep jam packed with: Super green cous cous with kale and lemon citronette

2/3 Cup          Couscous, fine

1/2 Cup          Kale, peeled away from the stem

1 Tbsp            Garlic, chopped

1 Bu               Parsley

1 Bu               Cilantro

ALL               Kale Stems

1/4 Cup         Lemon Juice

1/2 Tsp          Dijon Mustard

1/2 Tsp          Sugar

3/4 Cup         Olive Oil

To Taste        Salt

Place your couscous in a bowl. Reserve.

Gather your parsley, cilantro and kale stems. Pass them through the juicer. You will need 1 cup of green juice for this recipe. If you yield less than one cup, make up the difference with juiced cucumber or water.

Place in a pot with salt and bring to a boil. Once boiled, pour over the bowl of couscous and wrap with plastic wrap or cover with an airtight lid. The couscous will absorb the liquid and that is when you know it is finished. Reserve for 20 minutes.

In a small pot, place the garlic, kale and a touch of water. Heat this over high heat until the kale is barely wilted.

In a separate bowl, combine your lemon juice, a few splashes of water, salt, sugar and dijon mustard. Whisk this together. While whisking, slowly pour in the olive oil to emulsify into your dressing.

This is the same process as a vinaigrette. The citronette is a cousin of the vinaigrette that only uses citrus juice as your acid.

When your couscous is finished, use a fork to drag across the surface. This is called fluffing your couscous and it will ensure a light, non-clumpy final product.

Dress your kale with the citronette and place your kale on top of the couscous. This preparation is great with a fried egg on top.
