Tips for This Week’s Vegan Meal Plan

  • If you have leftover cilantro after making Monday’s Indian chickpeas & potatoes, use it to garnish Thursday’s soup. And if you have leftover basil after making Tuesday’s pasta, use it to garnish Wednesday’s Thai stuffed peppers.
  • Add a baguette to the shopping list if you’d like — it will go nicely with the spaghetti all’arrabbiata and the black bean soup.
  • Be sure the red curry past you buy for the Thai stuffed peppers is vegan — some brands contain shrimp paste.
  • You’ll probably have some leftover tomato paste from Monday’s Indian chickpeas & potatoes. Seal it up and freeze it for later use.
  • The Thai stuffed peppers recipe is the only one that calls for safflower seed oil, so we left it off the list. Use whatever oil you’ve got on hand.
  • Friday’s pizza is topped with homemade pesto hummus, but you can swap it out with your favorite store-bought hummus if you’d like.

Yeey! The meal plans are back :). Vegan this time, nice.
I’m very happy to see them again, they really helped me to get inspiration every week.

I was wondering what had happened to the meal plans! I was wondering if they were now all going to be vegan or if this is a “special” week. I try my best to eat only vegan and I definitely only prepare vegan foods, so this would be amazing!!!
