Tips for This Week’s Vegan Meal Plan

  • Feel free to swap out the broccoli, cucumber and radishes in Monday’s noodle bowls with your favorite veggies or whatever you’ve got on hand.
  • Monday’s bowls call for sambal oelek, but sriracha sauce works as a substitute, and since you’re already buying the sriracha, we left the sambal oelek off the list.
  • Look for plantains that have a little bit of browning on them when shopping for Tuesday’s tacos.
  • Tuesday’s taco recipe calls for Greek yogurt for serving, but we left it off the list to keep the recipe vegan. If you’re not following a vegan diet and would like to add it to the list, go right ahead. If you’re looking for a vegan alternative, try dairy-free yogurt, sour cream, or homemade cashew cream.
  • Make sure to hang on to a bit of cilantro when you make Tuesday’s tacos—you’ll need it for Thursday’s bowls.
