Taking a cue from international cuisine, and you can step outside the lunch box for a flavourful and meat-free menu.

Red Beans and Rice
Prepare any recipe for red beans and rice and substitute vegetarian-friendly soy sausage for the andouille sausage in traditional red beans and rice recipes, or omit the sausage entirely. This hearty meal does not require side dishes, but a serving of cornbread or cooked greens on the side will round out this lunch menu.
Tofu Stir Fry
Make an Asian-inspired vegetarian lunch. Cube one pound of firm tofu and it add to two cups of frozen stir fry vegetable blend. Heat on a hob until the vegetables and tofu cook through. Pour in ¼ to ½ cup of bottled stir fry sauce and toss to coat the tofu and vegetables with the sauce. Serve the stir fry with steamed rice and fortune cookies for dessert for a full menu.
Breakfast for Lunch
Make a batch of pancakes or waffles, substituting soy milk for the cow's milk in the recipe. Serve with maple syrup or honey and a side of fresh fruit or vegetarian breakfast sausage. Pour yourself a large glass of orange juice for a serving of fruit with this menu.
Portobello Mushroom Burger
Grill a large portobello mushroom and use it in lieu of a hamburger patty on a bun. Add your favourite burger condiments such as lettuce, tomatoes, onions slices, ketchup and mustard. Serve with a side of French fries cooked in vegetable oil or baked crisps.
