Brussels Sprout, Tempeh & Soba Noodle Skillet Recipe

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.

Here’s this week’s meatless meal plan:

Monday

Portabella Cheesesteaks RecipePortabella Mushroom Cheesesteaks // These toasty, cheesy sandwiches are a reader favorite and if you’re just starting to cut back on (or cut out) meat for the New Year, this is the kind of recipe that helps make that transition a little bit easier.

Tuesday

Whole Wheat Rotini with Broccolini and Sun-Dried TomatoesWhole Wheat Rotini with Broccolini and Sun-Dried Tomatoes // Try something different for dinner tonight — broccolini! Although don’t worry, if you can’t find broccolini at your grocery store, broccoli is just fine.

Wednesday

Crispy Quinoa Cakes with Roasted Red Pepper Cashew Cream RecipeCrispy Quinoa Cakes with Roasted Red Pepper Cashew Cream // A lot of people think they don’t like quinoa, but when it’s pan-fried into crispy cakes and served with a creamy red pepper sauce, it’s impossible to resist!

Thursday

Oh-So-Easy Broccoli Cheddar Pot PiesOh-So-Easy Broccoli Cheddar Pot Pies // We’re all about making dinnertime easy on Oh My Veggies and using puff pastry on these pot pies means you don’t have to worry about preparing and rolling out pie crust.

Friday

Brussels Sprout, Tempeh & Soba Noodle Skillet RecipeBrussels Sprout & Tempeh Soba Noodle Skillet // Here’s a healthy New Year’s resolution for you — eat more tempeh! It’s high in protein (31 grams per cup) and because it’s fermented, it’s more digestible than other soy products.

Tips For This Week’s Plan

  • The cheesesteaks are pretty filling by themselves, but a handful of potato chips or baby carrots makes a perfect side to round things out.
  • Bulk up Tuesday night’s pasta recipe by adding a can of drained chickpeas or cannellini beans.
  • The pasta calls for shredded parmesan cheese, but since the quinoa cakes call for grated parmesan, buy the grated version for both to make things easier.
  • I added a bag of salad greens to the shopping list — use them to serve with the crispy quinoa cakes.
  • Carrots, potatoes or cauliflower can all be added to the pot pies — just use less broccoli.

    Yummy! I’ve had 3 meatless dinners this week. I’m actually loving all of the ways to get protein without eating meat. These recipes look great, thanks for sharing.

    Have loved your recipes for some time, especially the mushroom gravy recipe that we’ve used for years at thanksgiving and at Christmas. It’s divine! Looking forepward to trying more recipes soon. The pot pies look delicious and easy!

    I’m constantly on the look out for complete vegetarian meals. While we’re not absolute vegetarians, we’re trying to cut back on our meat intake. It looks like almost all of these you have for the week are meals we would eat. THANK YOU!!

    I think the wrong meal plan is attached to the link at the bottom (it’s going to one from November http://ohmyveggies.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/shoppinglist111714.pdf). It all looks tasty, nonetheless.
