Tips for This Week’s Vegan Meal Plan
- Don't have a spiralizer? While we definitely recommend getting your hands on one, you can also use a vegetable peeler to create the noodles for Monday's soup.
- You'll probably have leftover cilantro after making Monday's soup. Sprinkle some on Wednesday's curry or add it to Thursday's burgers.
- Tuesday's pasta includes an option for topping with hemp Parmesan. We left this off the list for simplicity, but check out the recipe and add the ingredients if you'd like. You can also use your favorite store-bought vegan Parmesan.
- Wednesday's curry calls for frozen butternut squash, but since fresh is in season now, feel free to use that instead. Just add it to the pot when you add the quinoa. You can also substitute your favorite frozen veggies if you'd like.
- Thursday's burger recipe makes lots of burgers! Only shape as many patties as you need, then freeze the rest of the mix for later. When you're ready to enjoy it again, just thaw, shape and grill. We only put 4 buns on the list, but go ahead and buy extra if you plan to enjoy them all within the next couple of days.
- Look in your store's international foods section for the miso paste needed for Friday's bowls.
