20 Vegan Packed Lunch Recipes (1)

I've had a few emails over the past couple of months asking for packed lunch ideas, particularly for recipes that require no heating and can be eaten cold.

So I've put together a list of 20 of the best vegan lunchbox-friendly recipes I've found (and don't worry, they're not all salads...)

All of these recipes are meat-free, dairy-free and eggless. They can all be eaten cold or at room temperature and are perfect for work lunches, picnics and outings!
