Tips for This Week’s Vegan Meal Plan

  • The mushrooms for Monday’s tacos can be grilled on an outdoor grill, indoor grill, or in a grill pan on the stove. If none of those options work for you, feel free to cook them up in a skillet.
  • Don’t forget to start soaking the cashews for Monday’s tacos starting 4 to 8 hours in advance. And if you do forget, you can also boil them for about 15 minutes instead.
  • The sambal oelek for Tuesday’s noodles can be found in the international foods sections of most supermarkets. Or you can leave it out for a milder version of the dish.
  • You should have some chipotle peppers and adobo sauce left at the end of the week. If you don’t have another use for them right away, seal them up and freeze them for later.
  • You’ll probably have some leftovers when you make Friday’s sandwiches. Wrap them up for weekend lunches!
