Here’s this week’s meatless meal plan:

Monday

Grilled Veggie Salad with Parmesan Polenta Recipe

Grilled Veggie Salad with Basil-Parmesan Polenta // You can’t go wrong with grilled veggies. Add crispy grilled polenta and it’s like the best crouton ever.

Tuesday

Mushroom and Kale Lasagna with Rosemary Cashew Sauce

Creamy Mushroom and Kale Lasagna // Cashews make for a creamy, alfredo-esque sauce in this non-dairy take on hearty lasagna.

Wednesday

Mango Tempeh Lettuce Wraps Recipe

Mango Tempeh Lettuce Wraps //  Sweet champagne mangos are the perfect accompaniment to hoisin-flavored tempeh and crisp cucumbers.

Thursday

Cashew Tofu Quinoa Bowls

Cashew-Tofu Quinoa Bowls // Cashews make a reappearance in this slightly spicy, soy-honey glazed stir-fry.

Friday

Cauliflower Manchurian (5 of 6)

Baked Cauliflower Manchurian // Forget takeout and opt for the homemade version of this spicy Indian-Chinese favorite. Make sure to grab rice, quinoa or something else to serve it on as well.

Tips for This Week’s Plan

  • Grill up extra veggies on Monday to serve alongside other dishes throughout the week
  • Grill sliced polenta from a tube if you want to save a few steps—and the two hours of refrigeration time
  • Place Wednesday’s mint sprigs in a small glass of water in the fridge to help them stay fresher
  • Almonds, peanuts or walnuts can be subbed in for cashews in the lettuce wraps or quinoa bowls
  • Quinoa can be made in a rice cooker while prepping Thursday’s tofu and veggies, or even made a day or two in advance and refrigerated
  • Make extra quinoa on Thursday to serve with Friday’s cauliflower dish
