Vegan Meal Prep: Chili with Tofu Crumbles and Mushrooms


For this week’s meal prep, I decided to make some chili. The weather is cooling a bit here in Georgia, and I had some cravings. I decided to buy some of the tofu at the store and just make a simple basic chili.

The ingredients were rather inexpensive. I keep going to Fresh Market, and I love that everything seems really fresh, since I can’t make it to the farmers market all the time.

It was really easy to make everything in one pot. I like these one pot recipes! I also got a chance to use my food processor. I have issues cutting onions, and I like to make it quick.

I loved the organic beans I found, everything just tasted so fresh. I am really looking forward to lunch this week.

    I haven’t made chili in such a long time – I need to change that. Such a great idea to portion it out for lunches during the week.

    I always try to meal prep veggie and vegan meals (at least a few a week) and I never know what to do. I feel like it’s harder than prepping meat meals. Thank you for a great recipe!

    This looks delicious! It would be great with some sweet cornbread. Yum! A smart idea to portion it out so it’s ready for the whole week. I used to meal prep years ago, but I have gotten out of the habit lately. It is a super handy tool!

    I love one pot meals, and this sounds amazing! I am vegan, so this is right up my alley, although I don’t think Gardein is gluten free, so I would have to substitute another product.

    Great idea! This looks scrumptious and filling and flavorful. I’ve never prepped chili in advance, but I will now! Thanks for sharing this great idea!
