Looking for a delicious vegan meal prep recipe that doesn’t take hours to cook? Here’s one I am sure you’ll love.

The Spring sickness is still making its rounds and sometimes, soup is the only thing that seems like it actually helps in your mission to feel better. Change up your typical vegan take on “chicken” noodle soup and try out a Vietnamese favorite- pho! Between the garlic, ginger, and lime in this recipe, you’ll be feeling like your old self in no time.

Pho is great because you can add literally any vegetable that you want to the soup broth, making this also suitable for the whole family to join. To meal prep ahead, make the broth and set aside the vegetables that you want to include in a mason jar. Simply heat up the broth and then add to your vegetables in order to enjoy at work. Here is a simplified recipe for making vegan meal prep pho at home.
