Tips For This Week’s Plan

  • Use leftover bread from the sandwiches to make homemade croutons or toasts to serve with the soup.
  • The non-dairy milk you buy for the soup can also be used to make the cauliflower steaks.
  • Want to make some prep work done over the weekend? The roasted vegetables for Monday’s and Tuesday’s dinners can be made on Saturday or Sunday. The chowder will keep for a few days in the fridge too.
  • Fresh chives can be used in place of the parsley for the cauliflower steaks.

    I’ve been looking for more good panini ideas! They’re so quick to assemble for brown-bagging it to work, but I got sick of all my usual panini. I’ll be making this for sure. I hope you and all the kitties are well, and it’s great that you’re back in Chicago.

    Those crispy cauliflower steaks look so so good! Stinky-cookin’ veggies are my very favorite kind. Pinned!

    I love how you made them look a little like calimari. Hmmm….I wonder if I could fool my husband…(evil face emoji)
