My Vegan Lunch Box: Stephanie's Sweet and Savory Sandwiches!

In light of the new vegan lunch box book coming out, I decided to make a special lunch post! Here is my lunch box:


Heart shaped PB&J!! It doesn't get any simpler or better than this! Ezekiel bread, peanut butter, and homemade blueberry cinnamon agave preserves!


Star sandwich!! Brown rice "buns" with a filling of chinese vegetarian protein otherwise known in Chinese as "su song (with a long o)" and vegenaise wrapped in the sesame soy wrapper.
Mexi-rolls! Whole wheat tortilla encasing roasted butternut squash, avocado, roasted red peppers, homemade cashew chipotle cheddar cheese, and pureed black beans.
Sushi! This was a brown rice, tempura tempeh, roasted butternut squash, and avocado wrapped in nori type of maki. yummy :)
What's a meal without dessert? This is an American take on Dorayaki which is sort of like whoopie pies. Here I have whole wheat chocolate chip cakes with raspberry coconut creme. yummy!
Here's everybody all together!

Can you say YUM!?!

You are so cute! I used to take bentos to school all the time when I was little (I lived in Tokyo)... now I miss them. I think I'll have to get me one!

Totally just noticed your comment on my blog. Your stuff looks amazing! That one cake is gorgeous. And you can pack my lunches any day :)

I grew up in Ohio, too. I guess its just proof that the OH churns out some pretty awesome vegan chefs despite all the rabid carnivores that live there.

Wow, that is so awesome! I love your bento box itself, too. I can't believe I haven't thought of making heart/(whatever cookie cutter I can find)- shaped sandwiches! My mom totally used to make us little dinosaur pb&js when we were young 'uns. But yes, thanks for the idea.

Celine said...

This lunch looks totally outrageous! Does everyone at your lunch table gawk in jealousy? I remember my highschool lunch: 2 warm Otis Spunkmeyer cookies and a diet coke.UGH.

Matt said...

That rice star is a great idea. I'll have to try that in the kids' lunch soon. Thanks
