Have we had our fill of asparagus yet this month? No? Good! Because I’ve got more asparagus for you in this week’s meal plan. And if that’s not enough for you, I did a round-up of 50 delicious vegetarian asparagus recipes over on Amuse Your Bouche this week. I intend to make every one of them by the end of this spring. Or I’m a liar. One of those things.
Here’s this week’s meal plan:
Penne with Asparagus and Lemon Pesto from Green Valley Kitchen // Once again, the photos in this post were taken as I raced against the clock to get food on the plate before sunset. Don’t judge the lack of styling. But back on topic: Penne with Asparagus and Lemon Pesto. We absolutely loved this recipe. It was simple, delicious, and the perfect way to use spring asparagus.
Roasted Mushrooms on White Bean Puree from Cooking Light // I have a tendency to fall into a pasta/sandwich/pizza/soup rut when I’m cooking dinners, so I thought I’d break out of my rut by making something completely different. Different like mushrooms on bean puree! This makes a great light dinner and the best part is that it only takes about 20 minutes to make.
Miso Roasted Veggie Tofu Bowl from Noms for the Poor // Chewy baked tofu and tender roasted sweet potatoes make this quinoa-based dish tasty and satisfying. I added some chopped raw cashews that I had on hand too. We had the leftovers cold for lunch the next day–you could also repurpose it as a filling for lettuce wraps if you have butter lettuce on hand. Ideas! I have them!
Baked Fried Brown Rice from Oh My Veggies // When you bake rice, you can get it to take on that chewy, crispy texture of fried rice without having to use a ton of oil. This recipe is a reader favorite and it’s a favorite of mine too!
Mediterranean Calzones from Oh My Veggies // These calzones don’t require any fresh produce, so they’re perfect for ending the week with. Making your own dough for calzones can be a little time-consuming for a weeknight dinner, so we use store-bought instead.
