One of the simplest meals on Earth!
Step 1: Mash all ingredients together in a bowl except the raspberries
Step 2: Place the bowl in the microwave for 1 minute
Step 3: Serve with the raspberries on top!
Step 4: Get your feed on.
Pretty super, and pretty simple!
Step 1: Pre-grill your sliced seitan until it is cooked all the way through and then allow to chill in the refrigerator. Drizzle with a little soy sauce to absorb some extra flavour!
Step 2: Lightly toast your whole grain bread to your preferred toastiness… (Toasting the bread removes the chances of a soggy sandwich!).
Step 3: Slice the tomato and onion and get them ready for action.
Step 4: Layer all ingredients in whatever order you see fit. We personally went with bread, lettuce, seitan, tomato, onion, then the cheddar on top with the second slice of bread to finish!
Simply multiply all ingredients if you wish to bulk cook!
Step 1: Start out by placing your rice in a saucepan to cook over a medium heat with 1 part rice to 2 parts water.
Step 2: Allow to gently simmer for about 15-20 minutes until all of the water has been absorbed.
Step 3: In the meantime, take out a bowl and combine the seitan with the brown sugar, paprika, cumin, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
Step 4: Take out your most loved frying pan or skillet and bring to heat over a medium-high temperature.
Step 5: Add the olive oil and then the seitan to this desirable pan and cook for around 3 minutes per side.
Step 6: Once the seitan has developed a nice browning colour on both sides, turn off the heat and allow it to rest for a further 5 minutes.
Step 7: While the seitan is taking it easy, bring a pot to boil over a high heat and add the broccoli florets. Allow to blanch for 1 minute.
Step 8: Slice the seitan into bite-size pieces and then (if meal prepping) pull out your meal prep containers. Divide the portions evenly among your meal prep containers.
Step 9: If meal prepping- cover and refrigerate for up to 4 days. To serve, reheat in the microwave on a high setting for 2 minutes (adding spicy sauce is a treat!).
You’re all set!
Treat yourself to another slice, or two…
200 grams Watermelon
Not quite a glass of wine, but close!

So, there you have it! A balanced, nutritious, and delicious 1,000-calorie vegan meal plan. Enjoy!
