Tips For This Week’s Plan

  • You’ll have leftover tofu after making the creamy chimichurri spread for Tuesday’s sandwiches. Use it to make miso soup for lunch!
  • Instead of buying Fontina for the tetrazzini and mozzarella for the quinoa white bean cakes, you can use Fontina for both and skip the mozzarella to save a little money.
  • You can borrow some green onions from Friday’s recipe and use leftover cilantro from Tuesday’s dinner to garnish the enchiladas.
  • Make the brown rice for Friday’s dinner a few days in advance if you can.
  • We added a bag of salad greens to the shopping list; a side salad is perfect with Tuesday’s sandwiches and the white bean cakes can be served over a bed of greens. Make a simple balsamic vinaigrette for both or use a salad dressing you have on hand.
