Quick and Budget Friendly Vegan Meal

Wondering how to have a quick and easy vegan meal when you are out on contract?  Recently, I’ve been doing a lot of regional work and living out of hotels on contracts.  As some of you may know, there’s only so much you can do with a refrigerator and a microwave to create a delicious vegan meal.  I recently completed a contract up at The Fireside Theater doing “The Little Mermaid.”  While I don’t like to eat a large meal before a show, I would usually have a macro bar an hour before our half hour call.  Then, I would have a larger meal after my show.  My go-to/post show meal was always a simple veggie burger taco.


  1. Gluten-free Tortillas (corn, chickpea, brown rice, etc)
  2. Veggie Burger (I love Trader Joe’s Hi-Protein Veggie Burgers or Dr. Pregger’s Veggie Burgers)
  3. Hummus (I used Trader Joe’s Mediterranean Hummus)
  4. Optional: you can add vegan cheese on top (I love daiya cheese) and extra veggies.


  1. Warm tortillas in microwave for 30 seconds.
  2. Cook veggie burger in microwave until soft and warm (1-2 minutes)
  3. Assemble taco with half a burger in 2 tortillas.  Add hummus
  4. Add a side of carrots or any type of veggies.

This is a very simple recipe… but it’s great on a budget and living in a hotel room.  Quick & Easy.
