This weekend we did a Costco run. We’ve stocked up on a few of our favorites. We also did some batch cooking. We’ve got several meals in the fridge and ready to go for the week. This week’s plant-based meal plan contains soups, casseroles, smoothies and more.
Plant-Based Meal Plan
For the last three weeks I’ve been making a new soup. We have fallen in love with it. I decided that I should probably share it. I’ll publish the recipe this week! I’m also planning to make pumpkin bread and smoothies. We don’t do a lot of smoothies, especially this time of year, but my 10 year old has requested them so I’m going to oblige.
Instant Pot Breakfast Rice is one of those hearty breakfasts that we don’t make often enough. Instant Pot Oatmeal is another favorite. I really want to make my Peanut Butter and Banana Overnight Oats but since we’ve been on a warm breakfast kick, I’ll probably just add the peanut butter and bananas to my hot oatmeal.
We will eat leftovers most days for lunch. I also made my One Pot Broccoli Rice Casserole on Sunday. I almost forgot to make it but my husband loves taking it to work so I cooked it while making dinner.
Monday: Instant Pot Minestrone Soup is exceptionally good. If you are looking for a new soup to try, put this one on your list. The stove top version is just as good!
Tuesday: Veggie Pad Thai is going to be perfect for this busy day. Last time I made it, I chopped up a second batch of veggies and put them in the freezer. I’ll be able to get home from work and start cooking without taking the time to chop the veggies.
Wednesday: Taco Soup will always be a favorite. I started making a version of his before we went plant-based and easily converted it to a plant-based recipe. We’ve been eating this version for 8 years!
Friday: Veggie Burgers and Oven Baked Fries
Do you shop at Costco? We have a lot of broccoli and spinach to eat! I’d love to hear your must haves from Costco!
