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.
