Tips for This Week’s Vegetarian Meal Plan

  • Since Monday’s burritos are freezer-friendly, you may want to double or triple the recipe so you can stock you freezer for future lunches or dinners.
  • Wednesday’s burgers call for a number of spices. If you don’t normally stock most of them, feel free to substitute about a tablespoon of a Jamaican jerk seasoning blend.
  • Save time on Wednesday’s burgers by forming the burger mix and making the slaw in advance. Then all you need to do the day of serving is shape and grill the patties.
  • Wednesday’s burger recipe is the only one that calls for grapeseed oil, so we left it off the list. Use whatever oil you’ve got on hand.
  • The two oranges on the list are for juicing and zesting for Thursday’s stir-fry. You’ll need 1/3 cup of juice, so make sure to buy juicy ones.

One of these weeks I’m actually going to use the meal plan instead of just drooling over it. Your choices always look amazing, Alissa.

I love that you give a meal plan for the week, suggestions on how to prep, and a grocery list for everything. So many times I get recipes and it only is for one day and I have so many excess ingredients I don’t know what I can do with. And not to be forgotten, these recipes look delicious!
