Here is a list of simple vegetarian foods that are great as snacks, sides or instant meals. I’ll keep adding to this list as I continue to think of easy and quick foods or ready/semi-ready made products.
Cut cucumber (sometimes you can add a pinch of salt on them)
Fried or boiled egg
Fruit - Her current favorites are grapes, apples and mangoes
Bread with a piece of cheese
A plain rice ball (musubi)
Oatmeal (esp. cinnamon spice and apple)
Grilled cheese sandwich
Yogurt (you can add things like granola or chocolate chips)
Edamame soy beans w. a little salt
Natto over rice (sometimes she’s in the mood and sometimes she’s not)
Cheese tortellini. I sometimes buy this Giovanni Rana Tortellini and put the remainder in the freezer. It only takes about 3-5 min to boil and you don’t need to add any sauce. You can buy it at many major markets and probably Whole Foods.
