Recipe Round-up: 5 Superfood Packed Packable Lunches

The boys are back in school and I’m feeling this major energy shift to get back to hustlin’. This calls for all the potent, nutrient-dense lunches full of all the delicious superfoods I could ever need. Philosophie Babe, Marissa Cohen, scoured our Philosphie recipe database for some of our all-time packable favs.


While we’re still soaking up every last bit of the summer sun, fall is just around the corner. Making the transition back to school, college, and work schedules can be stressful. Packing a nourishing lunch is a great way to fuel your day and give yourself something to look forward to before that mid-afternoon lull. Here are my top 5 packable Philosophie superfood lunches to enjoy all week long.

Tuesday – Empty the Fridge Curry

Batch cooking is a must for busy weeks. This curry recipe uses whatever you have on hand for a flavorful, wholesome meal. It is perfect lunch as we transition into the cooler autumn months. From an energetic perspective, root vegetables and spices like turmeric and ginger have grounding properties to keep you calm during stressful days at the desk.


Gather This:

3 sweet potatoes

1 parsnip

2 C carrots

2 C green beans

1 C snap peas

Wednesday – Green Dream Quinoa Stuffed Bell Peppers

This one will make your co-workers jealous. Stuffed peppers are simple and delicious. Try making this recipe for dinner one night and bringing the leftovers the next day.


Gather This:

4 bell peppers

4 C quinoa or rice (cooked)

½ C chopped onion

10 cloves garlic, minced

1 tbsp Green Dream Superfood + Protein Blend (divided)

S + P (to taste)

Cheese (optional)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees fahrenheit. Sauté garlic and onions in a splash of olive or coconut oil then mix in the quinoa and add the seasonings to taste. Cut off the top of the bell peppers and remove any seeds. Stuff the bell peppers with quinoa mix, cover with foil and bake for 10 mins. Then uncover and bake for 15 more mins. Add cheese when desired, while baking for golden brown, or immediately after pulling out from oven. Finish with a sprinkle with Green Dream Superfood + Protein Blend.

Thursday – Zoodle Pesto Pasta

Who doesn’t love pasta? This Zoodle Pesto Pasta is full of fiber, plant based protein, and healthy fats, unlike traditional boxed pasta. Get creative and add toppings like hemp seeds, herbs, sun-dried tomatoes, pine nuts, and tempeh to suit your liking.


Gather This:

2 zucchinis (one per person for zoodles)

1/4 C olive oil

3/4 C cashews

1/2 C pine nuts

1 C basil

2 T water

1 T nutritional yeast

1 tsp Green Dream Superfood + Protein Blend

1 clove of garlic

1 tsp garlic powder (optional)

1 tsp sea salt

1 tsp Bragg's Organic Sea Kelp Delight (optional)

1 tsp hemp seeds for seasoning

 

Do This:

Cut both ends off of the zucchini. Follow the directions for your spiralizer and transform your zucchini into thin ribbons, placing the final product into two large bowls. Mix all of the pesto ingredients in a high-speed blender. If the mixture isn’t incorporating properly, feel free to add more water and/or olive oil to get things moving. Divide the pesto sauce evenly amongst the “pasta” and stir it all together! Optional (but delicious) toppings include: hemp seeds, herbs, sun-dried tomatoes, pine nuts, and tempeh!


Friday – Brain Boosting Smoothie

On days when you can’t be bothered to chop or roast veggies (we feel you), depend on your blender. Smoothies are a great meal replacement if they have the right balance of carbohydrates, protein, and healthy fats to sustain you. This Brain Boosting Smoothie checks all of the boxes. Chocolate for lunch is perfectly acceptable when it comes from our high-vibe Cacao Magic Superfood + Protein Blend. Make it even more delicious with an extra spoonful of one of the Philosophie coconut butters for extra brain power.


Gather This:

1 C nut milk

1 frozen banana

2-3 T chopped walnuts

1 T Cacao Magic Superfood + Protein Blend

1 T coconut oil

1 T unsweetened coconut flakes

1 tsp Cacao Bee Honey

1 tsp cinnamon

Two handfuls ice

Organic pomegranate seeds, cacao nibs, or chopped walnuts (for toppings)


Do This:

Add all ingredients (except your toppings) to a high-speed blender and blend until creamy and smooth. If it’s too thick, add a bit more nut milk. Pour into your favorite glass, add your toppings, and enjoy!

Cloudy days call for soup and lots of it. Here at Philosophie HQ, we love creating soups with full, rich flavors that have grounding and soothing properties. Everything is created with careful love and intention. The best part? They’re so easy to reciprocate right in your own kitchen!

This is a gorgeous creamy butternut squash soup with a delicious savory flavor. We've added Green Dream Superfood Blend (of course!) for extra superfoods and protein. Gently warm it up as the cold approaches. Don’t heat it too much or too long so the enzymes stay alive and well! 

Homemade Butternut Squash Soup

1 butternut squash (peeled, seeded, and cubed into 1-inch pieces)

2 ½ cup vegetable broth

3 garlic cloves (peeled)

2 small shallots or 1/2 sweet onion (peeled + halved)

1 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp Green Dream Superfood Blend

Roast veggies for 45 minutes, stirring once or twice and cooking until squash is tender. Remove any shallot, onion, or garlic that seems to be over-roasting. Remove and let cool for 10 to 15 minutes. Place squash and shallots in blender/food processor and blend until creamy. In a large pot, place blended mix and add broth and salt. Cook on medium-low until heated through, adding more broth or water as needed. Taste for seasoning, stir in Green Dream and top with pumpkin seeds. ENJOY!

Baked Brussels Salad with Green Superfood Dressing

Baked Brussels Salad with Green Superfood Dressing

Green veggie salads are NOTHING to be scared of. They can be just as delicious, nutritious and satisfying as any other salad. This baked brussels salad is perfect for those chilly afternoons and it is AMAZING! Make it with family, friends or as a wholesome lunch for just yourself. Add Green Dream to an anchovy oil dressing (TRUST US!), which melts anchovies in their oil then is added in with tahini, lemon and parsley, and creates one of the most savory, satisfying dressings you’ll ever have on a baked salad. 


This roasted brussels salad will feel like a ceasar salad but with a bit fresher and brighter texture. A Green Dream dressing will add an extra dose of nutrients and plant protein. The ingredient list may look long but totally worth it for a salad this filling and flavorful.

Brussel Sprout Salad

Gather This:

1 15 oz. can of chickpeas

1 tbsp za’atar seasoning

1 & ¼ lbs brussels sprouts (approx. 5 cups)

FOR THE DRESSING

1 tin anchovies (optional but so tasty!)

2 cloves garlic minced or grated with a microplane

1 tsp Green Dream

½ cup tahini

1 lemon for juicing

½ cup flat leaf parsley finely chopped

¼ cup cold water


Do This:

Preheat your oven to 400°F.

Drain and rinse chickpeas. Dry them well before adding them to a food processor. Pulse until they form chickpea "crumbs." Spread out evenly on a baking sheet.

Generously drizzle the chickpea crumbs with olive oil, then toss in the za'atar and season with salt. Toss with your hands until everything is coated.

Thinly slice brussel sprouts and add them to a separate baking sheet. You want them to have enough space on the pan to breathe and crisp up, so feel free to use two baking sheets if needed. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

Add the chickpeas and the brussel sprouts to the oven, with the chickpeas on the highest rack. Bake the brussel sprouts for 20-22 minutes, and the chickpeas for 25-30 minutes or until dry and crisp.

Green Superfood Dressing

While the brussel sprouts and chickpeas are roasting, make the GREEN DREAM DRESSING.

Put a small saucepan on medium low heat. Add in just the oil from the tin of anchovies, and let it heat up. Then add the anchovies to the pan, they should immediately sizzle and begin to "melt" into the oil.

Add the grated garlic into the pan with the anchovy oil. Cook on medium heat for 2-3 minutes or until you can no longer taste any raw garlic. This will look like a thick paste.

Add this paste, the tahini, the juice from one lemon, the Green Dream and the parsley to a bowl. Combine everything to a blender for a light green sauce. 


Remove the brussel sprouts and chickpea crumble from the oven. Drizzle a good amount of the dressing onto the brussel sprouts and give them a toss in the pan.

To serve, pile the brussel sprouts into two bowls. Sprinkle the chickpea crumbles on top. ENJOY!
