Tips for This Week’s Vegetarian Meal Plan

  • Monday’s burritos and Tuesday’s salad can be prepped ahead of time. For Friday’s burgers, you can prepare the mix a few days in advance, then shape and cook the patties just before you’re ready to eat them.
  • Tuesday’s salad includes walnuts and pinenuts as topping options. We put walnuts on the list, since you can use them for Friday’s burgers as well, but you can use pinenuts instead if you prefer.
  • Wednesday’s egg scramble calls for fresh corn, but since that’s not in season now, use frozen instead. Just thaw it out before adding it to the scramble.
  • Some toast would make a nice accompaniment to Wednesday’s egg scramble, so add bread to the list if you’d like. Alternatively, if you’ve got a few extra tortillas from Monday’s burritos, use them to make scrambled egg wraps.
  • You may want to add a baguette or salad mix to round out Thursday’s soup.
