Welcome to your weekly vegan meal plan #11! It’s been 11 weeks already since we’ve been sharing these meal plans (which come complete with meal prep instructions, an allergy guide and printable shopping list). We hope you’ve been finding these useful. If you have any suggestions for us on tweaks or improvements you’d like to see, we’d love to hear!

This week we have for you one of our favorite burgers: a vegan quinoa bean burger that stands up nicely to the grill but can just as easily be made indoors, in a skillet. Also on the menu are potato tacos that are super easy and fun, a yummy vegan meatball curry that you can make in under 30 minutes, and a spicy masoor dal made with whole brown lentils. For the weekend we have a scrumptious vegan Irish shepherd’s pie that’s loaded with nutrition and yum!

Why follow a meal plan?

Saves time: Following a meal plan saves time. If you have a meal plan on hand, you have a roadmap for how to feed your family for the rest of the week.

Family friendly: All of our recipes are healthy and delicious and designed to feed a family with kid-friendly and adult-friendly dinners. All recipes are plant-based and many are gluten-free or can easily be tweaked to make them gluten-free. Starting with meal plan 5 we indicate on each meal plan whether the recipe is gluten-free, soy-free and/or nut-free so you can easily make tweaks for your family.

Saves money: Planning ahead is also a great way to save money because you are armed with a shopping list and know exactly what to buy with no distractions!

How many servings are in each recipe?

The number of servings varies per recipe, but most of my recipes here at HolyCowVegan are created to serve at least six people. If you are a family of four you can easily feed everyone with plenty of leftovers for lunch the next day. Most recipes are fridge- and freezer-friendly so you can easily save leftovers for another meal.

Can I tweak the meal plan to make fewer servings?

Yes. This meal plan is designed to feed a family of 4-6 people. But if you are cooking just for yourself or for two you can easily adjust the number of servings. Cut down the ingredients proportionately, or tweak the number of servings on each recipe using the servings slider in the recipe box.

Do leftovers freeze well?

Leftovers of most recipes should freeze well. Please check individual recipes for specific instructions.
