Here is this week’s meatless meal plan for your enjoyment :D Let me know what you think in the comment section below, and you can always browse my Pinterest board for even more (like billions more) meatless meal ideas. Be sure to check out last week’s MMM for some tips and explanations on how this post works…
I need to use up the other half of the cabbage from last week, so it’s cabbage soup today. (be sure to save a bag full of cabbage shreds for Tuesday’s meal)
Bang Bang Cauliflower is one of our all-time favorite recipes. There are never any leftovers. We eat it all… It’s definitely my go-to cauliflower recipe when I’m in the mood for cauliflower. The sauce is what makes it (and I use Just Mayo which is vegan).
Eggless Egg Salad. This is THA BOMB. Surprisingly, the kids eat this too and it’s great to take on a picnic. We have definitely done that :D It tastes great, and uses no eggs, but you really wouldn’t be able to tell because the texture is similar enough to egg salad.
Nachos Fresca… Ok, this is something I made up and I apologize I do not have a picture of it. #blogfail. But I basically made a chunky salsa and we ate it with tortilla chips. It was a quick and easy meal to throw together, and tasted really fresh and delightful. And you can totally throw whatever you want into the bowl to make it your own. Here is what I chopped up and put in a bowl:
- white onion
- a can of corn
- a can of black beans
- a dash of lime juice
- salt (and probably a little garlic salt)
Gave it a good stir to incorporate the ingredients, and I made it about an hour ahead of time and let it marinate in the fridge for an hour which made the flavor really good! The leftovers held up for about two days in the fridge but we definitely finished it off way before it got gross LOL.
Here is this week’s bonus recipe! My favorite, Alton Brown’s Hummus recipe. This makes a good amount of hummus, so feel free to cut the recipe in half if you’re the only one who eats hummus at your house… It makes more than a store-bought package of hummus. But because there are no preservatives, it really only lasts about a week in the fridge (a good week and a half really) but at the end of the week and a half, you can sense it’s starting to turn. But it’s a great recipe and it really is delicious!!
