Our weekly meatless 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, then print the meal plan and shopping list at the bottom of this post.

Here’s this week’s meatless meal plan:


Fresh Corn and Poblano PizzaRoasted Fresh Corn, Poblano and Cheddar Pizza // Corn is still in season so get it while you can!


Nectarine and Avocado Salad with Ginger-Lime DressingNectarine and Avocado Salad with Ginger-Lime Dressing // Store-bought marinated tofu makes this salad worthy of a meal.


Beer-Marinated Grilled Mushroom Tacos with Pepita Relish & Chipotle Crema RecipeBeer-Marinated Grilled Mushroom Tacos with Pepita Relish and Chipotle Crema // With a little advance prep work, these tacos make an easy weeknight dinner.


Lemon-Garlic Zucchini Noodles with Roasted TomatoesLemon-Garlic Zucchini Noodles with Roasted Tomatoes // Spiralized zucchini is tossed in a light, zesty sauce.


vegan_cincinnati_chiliVegan Cincinnati Chili // A touch of cocoa powder adds depth to this lentil-based chili.

Tips For This Week’s Plan

  • Use half the red onion for the tacos and the other half for the salad.
  • Not sure what to do with your leftover chipotle in adobo? Freeze it!
  • Sour cream is an optional ingredient for the pizza, so we left it off the list. If you want it, add it back on—you can use it on the chili too!
  • Extra cheddar and green onions can also be used as toppings for the chili.
  • There are a few different components for the tacos, but don’t worry—you can make them in advance! You can start marinating the mushrooms and make the cashew crema the night before.

    We love your meal plans. Thank you so much! This week’s meal plan seems to be missing the recipe for zucchini noodles with roasted tomatoes. Please take a look.

    Thank you for always creating such interesting, tasty and easy meal plans!

    These all look so good! I think there has been a little SNAFU at the end of the week; Thursday’s picture doesn’t match the link and Friday is no where to be found!

    Maybe it’s just me, but I’m showing Thursday with a picture for the Zucchini Noodles and the recipe link for Friday’s Chili. I wanted to find out more about the Zucchini meal but can’t find the link.
