This Week’s Meatless Meal Plan | 12.21.15

Our weekly meatless meal plans are 5-day menus that serve a family of 4 — or less if you don’t mind leftovers! Click on each of the meal links below to get printable recipes, then print the meal plan and shopping list at the bottom of this post.

Here’s this week’s meatless meal plan:


Roasted Red Pepper and Mozzarella Sandwiches with Arugula Pesto Recipe Roasted Red Pepper and Mozzarella Sandwiches with Arugula Pesto // Arugula pesto adds a peppery bite to these super easy sandwiches—serve them cold if you just can’t wait to dig in or use a panini press to get them nice and toasty.


One-Pot Sesame Noodles & Veggies One-Pot Peanut Sesame Noodles with Veggies // Most one-pot pasta recipes are Italian-inspired, but this version is packed with Asian flavors and lots of fresh vegetables.


Cuban Fried Quinoa Cuban Fried Quinoa with Black Beans and Smoky Tempeh // Tempeh, black beans and quinoa combine to make this dinner an excellent source of protein.


Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Red Cabbage Pizza Roasted Brussels Sprout and Red Cabbage Pizza // Using refrigerated dough makes homemade pizza so much easier!


Slow Cooker Butternut Squash Chili with Porter Slow Cooker Butternut Squash Chili with Porter // Who wants to cook dinner on a Friday night? This slow cooker chili can be assembled in the morning and left to cook while you work.

Tips For This Week’s Plan

  • Many of this week’s recipes have components that can be prepared in advance, so if you have time over the weekend, you can easily get a jumpstart on the week’s cooking.
  • If you want a side with your sandwich and don’t have anything on hand, add that to the shopping list!
  • You’ll have some leftover cabbage this week—here are four ideas for using it.
  • Take a look at the One-Pot Peanut Sesame Noodle and Slow Cooker Butternut Squash Chili recipes before you go grocery shopping—they each call for optional toppings, which weren’t added to the shopping list. Pick the ones you like and add them.

    These meal plans are fantastic, and have helped me learn how to shop, cook, and eat for one (with “freezer food” and leftovers a-plenty!) I’m always excited to see a new plan each Friday, but there haven’t been any new ones recently. I know there are tons in the archives, but will you be posting any new ones or have you discontinued this series? Thanks!

      I was wondering the exact same thing as Emma. The meal plans were an absolute success with my family and I really hope we get to see some new ones moving forward into 2016
