Today's meal plan theme is - vegetarian!
We have been on meatless diet past one month.. So I decided to compile a vegetarian meal menu for coming week.
Honestly, I have so many easy vegetarian recipes on the blog that it was kinda difficult to pick just 10. If you wish to explore more ways to cook vegetarian meals? There is big list - here.
Now let's look at what I did pick for coming week's menu!
As always, menu includes a lite Monday dinner, a vegetarian homemade bread, and an all vegetarian dessert. You know what?! I have even picked better-than-tacos Mexican favorite for taco Tuesday! Hurrah!!
Best thing about this veggie menu is that all recipe's main component - from sauce to beans burgers, can be prepared over the weekend. So you can cook an easy and quick yet delicious vegetarian meal, on weekdays, at moment's notice. Sounds good?
Wish you a wonderful weekend.
PS: Don't get discouraged if you like meat-veggie proportionate menu for week! I have been sharing those in past weeks. Check the list here.
