If you’re headed off on your next adventure and are wondering what food to bring with you on the plane, well this post for vegan airplane snacks may be for you!
Although there are some airlines that provide vegan and vegetarian meals, they are often not very appealing. Airports also have a lot of options for food, but either they are expensive or the shop isn’t open when you’re at the airport. That’s why it is super convenient if you bring your own food with you on your flight. This vegan friendly airplane snacks bento box will keep you full and satisfied on your next flight.
The main is a vegan black rice salad with crispy tofu. This is packed with flavour, healthy goodness and is quite filling. The recipe is from one of my favorite vegan cookbooks, but there is a similar recipe found here. This is the perfect to go meal since all you need is a spoon or fork to eat it, is super healthy and can fill you up for a while.
Hummus and veggies is always the perfect snack on the go. We packed the bento box with garlic hummus and sliced up some cucumber, bell pepper and baby carrots. Vegetables are filled with water so this snack will also keep you hydrated on the plane.
You always need a sweet treat in a bento box, so we decided to go with this secret ingredient chocolate pudding. And the secret ingredient: sweet potato! This pudding is so delicious and you will never guess that it’s vegan and that it contains sweet potato. Although this recipe is from Angela Liddon’s Oh She Glows Cookbook, it has also been shared by her on the Vancouver Sun, you can check out the recipe here: Secret Ingredient Chocolate Pudding. This treat is the perfect indulgence. Creamy, chocolaty and quite healthy with the sweet potato and other healthy ingredients.
Finally, you can easily include a banana in your airplane snacks bag. It comes pre packaged and can quickly satisfy a craving. Last, but not least, make sure you include an empty water bottle. I love my S’well bottle and I like to fill it up with water once I have passed security. I either find a water fountain at the airport or ask the airplane hostess to fill it up for me on the plane.
And there you have it: the perfect vegan bento box with friendly airplane snacks. I’m heading on a trip in a couple of months and this is going to be my go to for airplane snacks to take along with me. I can’t wait to get on the airplane and munch on these goodies.
