Meal Plan: Sweet & Spicy Mango Fajitas, Coconut Onion Rings & More

Cauliflower and Chickpea Coconut Curry Recipe

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:


Make-Ahead Cheese & Roasted Vegetable Baked Manicotti RecipeMake-Ahead Cheese & Roasted Vegetable Manicotti // As the name suggests, this recipe can be made in advance—either keep it in the fridge uncooked until Monday or make it several days ahead of time and freeze it. Any leftovers freeze well too!


Seitan Cacciatore RecipeSeitan Cacciatore // Seitan makes the perfect substitute for chicken in this meatless version of the classic Italian dish.


Sweet & Spicy Mango Fajitas RecipeSweet & Spicy Mango Fajitas // Pieces of fresh mango add an unexpected twist to this super easy fajita recipe—the hardest part is chopping the fruit and veggies for the filling!


Cauliflower and Chickpea Coconut Curry RecipeCauliflower Chickpea Coconut Curry // This comforting curry is a reader favorite. It’s flavorful, but the heat level is mild, so it’s great for anyone who doesn’t like their curries spicy. And if you do like your curries spicy, add cayenne or hot sauce.


Crispy Baked Coconut Onion Rings with Sweet Chili Sauce RecipeVeggie Burgers & Crispy Baked Coconut Onion Rings with Sweet Chili Sauce // Onion rings can be a little bit fussy to assemble, so we’ve paired them with store-bought veggie burgers to make dinner a little bit easier.

Tips For This Week’s Plan

  • Not so sure about seitan? Cooked or canned chickpeas can be substituted instead, although they don’t have the same meaty texture as seitan.
  • You can serve the cacciatore over rice, pasta or couscous, but since we already need rice for the curry, we’ve simplified things by using brown rice for both.
  • We’re working on the assumption that you probably have toppings for the veggie burgers on hand. If you don’t, make sure you add sliced cheese and your toppings of choice to the shopping list!

    Great weekly meal plan! I have been soooo far out of the meal planning game lately. I saw this post and realized just how out of the loop I’ve become. Some of these recipes will be stolen to used at my house this week. Thanks for sharing 🙂

    These meal plans are amazing, thank you so much! I’m wondering if there are any similar types of plans for vegan meals (I love cheese, but it doesn’t love me!)

      Thanks Emily! I’m glad you like them! We’re actually alternating vegan and vegetarian plans every other week now, so if you check out the archives you should see a bunch of vegan plans. This Friday’s plan will be vegan too. 🙂
