Week Night Plant-Based Dinners

Sharing is caring!

Every week I share my Plant-Based Meal Plan. Last week I only shared our dinners and it went so well I thought I’d do it again and share our Week Night Plant-Based Dinners Meal Plan. I’ll give you some breakfast and lunch suggestions also.

Plant-Based Meal Plan

Breakfast: I’ve been moving away from oatmeal and hot breakfasts over the last week or so. Two mornings a week we have early morning appointments and I try to start working by 8:00 the other mornings.

I still offer oatmeal but my kids have been requesting toast with fruit, bagels or cereal, most mornings. This summer, we are encouraging them to be more independent so some mornings they make their own breakfast. Peanut Butter Overnight Oats is a great option to have in the fridge for those mornings we need a little extra.

Lunch: Most days lunch will be leftover dinner or sandwiches. On Sunday I cooked Enchilada Soup in my Instant Pot and cooked my One Pot Broccoli and Rice Casserole so we have those ready for lunch all week. Typically I’ll eat the soup, my husband and youngest son will eat the casserole and my other son will have sandwiches.

Monday: Broccoli and Mushroom Stir Fry is a super easy, oil-free stir fry that is easy to adapt, based on what you have and what you like. You can even use frozen veggies if you don’t have any fresh. I’m working on clearing out my freezer and pantry so I’ll probably use frozen this time.

Tuesday: One Pot Pizza Pasta is as simple as it sounds. I like having pasta at least once a week for an easy meal. I add extra sauce to mine once it’s in the bowl and my boys add olives to theirs. Just like pizza, we all have completely different preferences, we use the basics in the pasta then load up our favorite toppings on the side. This is perfect with a side salad with Creamy Italian or Sweet and Tangy Salad Dressing.

Wednesday: Instant Pot Mexican Casserole is one of my oldest and most loved recipes! It’s worthy of a permanent spot on the meal plan. The leftovers are perfect for lunches too.

Thursday: Southwest Tofu Scramble is another easy recipe. This time I’m making it as an excuse to make my Mango Salsa! I really want the Mango Salsa and I think this scramble will be the perfect pairing!

Friday: Nacho Night! I’ll use my Instant Pot Refried Beans recipe, Kathy Hester’s Instant Pot Queso from the Ultimate Vegan Instant Pot Cookbook, and all our favorite toppings!

I also have a few bananas that are getting ripe and almost perfect for Banana Bread. I usually make Blueberry Muffins while I’m at it. I’ve got a new Pampered Chef Brownie Pan that I really want to use for the muffins!
