Slow-Cooker Indian-Spiced Chickpeas & Potatoes

Our vegan 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 vegan meal plan:

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.

    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!!!
