Menu Plan, 10/52



Time for another vegan weekly meal plan. But first, another week in review.

Last week's plan was fairly successful. We had to make a couple of changes to the schedule, but for the most part the plan ensured that we made decent meals. Yesterday's scheduled meal was Roasted Fall Vegetables and Lentil Salad, but my son's basketball game was right around dinner time so we postponed that particular meal until today (pictured above). The family had lasagna (from frozen) instead and I had a quick fried rice.


Going back to Monday, here's a picture of our Express Curried Lentils. She ain't pretty, but trust me this recipe is tasty. And the combo of cauliflower and lentils makes it good and healthy. I served it over a rice and quinoa blend. My husband and I both declared the recipe a "keeper."

Tuesday was Taco Tuesday...tacos with all the fixin's. Enough said.



Here's Wednesday's Pasta Primavera, made with vegan parmesan. The recipe, by Giada De Laurentiis, calls for farfalle, but I used a kamut spaghettini. This one is well worth making too. Especially if you are dreaming of spring. Of course, I couldn't get yellow squash so I used extra zucchini.


With Thursday came another change of plans. My husband and son went skiing and ate at the lodge. So, no spaghetti and tofu balls here. Couldn't be bothered. I quickly baked tofu triangles in teriyaki sauce. I made a rice mix out of a box and noodles from a box. The rice was not bad, the so-called "Pad Thai" noodles horrible. The combo also made for a pale looking plate of food. I definitely should have thrown some broccoli on there!

Friday called for more easy veggie burgers and the like. Nothing too demanding or exciting.

Now for this week's menu plan.

  7. Your meals always look so good! I have been wanting to try a vegan week as I don't think I've fully done it before, I always sneak in some sort of fish or chicken. Maybe I will aim for vegan meals everyday next week :P
