Tips For This Week’s Plan

  • The caprese sandwiches could also be made into wraps if you have extra tortillas or collard leaves. And feel free to pile on additional veggies you have in the fridge.
  • Check your CSA box or garden to see if you have heirloom tomatoes—those would be fabulous in the caprese sandwiches and pesto pasta
  • If you don’t want to make the cashew cheese, buy another vegan cheese or fresh mozzarella—or sub in hummus
  • To help the cilantro last until Thursday, place it upright in a glass of water in the fridge. If you have extra on Thursday, it would be lovely on the Tikka Masala.
  • Garnish the stuffed peppers with any remaining corn, tomatoes or cilantro pesto from Tuesday
  • Freeze the leftovers of Thursday’s soup to have for lunch or a quick dinner next week

Just wanted to send a note that your meal plans have been the tool that has brought my family out of our food rut. I look forward to cooking and eating your meals. This is our 3rd week using them. My husband is vegan and me and my 22 month old are vegetarians. The plans are easily adapted for my husband and son. Thank you so much! I actually enjoy grocery shopping and cooking now.
