Our weekly vegetarian 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:
Roasted Vegetable Sandwiches with Creamy Chimichurri Spread // A tangy chimichurri spread makes these simple roasted vegetable sandwiches something special.
Tortilla Pie with Black Beans and Zucchini // Tortillas layered with black beans, veggies and plenty of cheese—yup, this one's a crowd-pleaser!
General Tso's (Not) Chicken Bowls // This meatless remake of General Tso's Chicken replaces the chicken with seitan.
Butternut Squash Burritos with Black Beans and Kale // You wouldn't think of burritos as healthy, but with kale, squash and black beans, these are burritos you can feel good about eating.
Spicy Chickpea and Spinach Stew // Served over a bed of rice or couscous, this stew makes a hearty, warming meal.
Tips For This Week's Plan
- You'll have half a block of tofu leftover from the chimichurri spread; use it to make miso soup for lunch!
- If you don't like cooking with alcohol, no worries—cross the beer off the shopping list and substitute vegetable broth instead.
- Sour cream, green onions, cilantro and salsa can be used for both the tortilla pie and the burritos.
- Can't find harissa at your grocery store? Substitute any hot sauce you like in the Chickpea and Spinach Stew—add a little, taste, and add more as needed.
