Weekly Vegetarian Meal Plan #2

Plan your weekly dinners with this 7 day plant-based meal plan that’s fit for a blended family of vegetarians and meat eaters too!

A few weeks ago one of my lovely team members shared her vegetarian meal plan with us, and more specifically how she caters to meat eaters and a vegetarian under the same roof. It seems that she’s not alone though, with many of you reaching out to tell me that dinnertime in your homes is often a mix of meat and vegetarian meals too. Tess has kindly shared another of her weekly vegetarian family meal plans with us this week. Enjoy!

MONDAY

Pesto Salad – the trick to keeping the meat eaters happy in a home with vegetarians, is to serve dinner in sides. This means you can easily use the bulk of the meal for everyone, with an additional side of meat. Tess often enjoys a pesto salad for her meal whilst the boys have it as a side with their steak.

TUESDAY

Mushroom Burgers – perhaps one of the easiest meals to switch up into a meat-eaters delight, is a mushroom burger. A few beef patties added to the boys’ burgers will keep the herd happy.

WEDNESDAY

Veggie Pie – call it a vegetable pie, a quiche or a veggie flan – either way it’s delicious (and easy!). Egg based meals like this vegetable pie always go down a treat with the children and adults alike in Tess’ home, and she doesn’t even add a side of meat to this dish, just a simple salad.

THURSDAY

Stir Fry – chop enough veggies for everyone, and then prepare the stir fries in two different pans. Add chicken to one pan and tofu to the other. Simple.

FRIDAY

Thai Takeaway – Friday night is always takeaway night in Tess’ home. Asian-inspired meals are a big winner (because they easily cater to meat eaters and vegetarians).

SATURDAY

Pumpkin Soup – as the weather starts to cool down, it’s a lovely time to start on the toasty warm soups. A bowl of creamy pumpkin soup, a dash of cream and a fresh buttered french stick is always a winner with the meat eaters and the token veggo in Tess’ home.

This is the most easiest pumpkin soup I have ever made. Also helps that it is really delicious too! If you haven't made your own pumpkin soup before I really recommend you try this one! I have included regular and thermomix recipe below.

SUNDAY

Sausage and Veg Pasta Bake – if a recipe contains sausages, these can easily be substituted for veggie sausages to make the meal meat-free. When creating bakes like this, Tess makes a big one (with meat) for the family and a smaller veggie one for herself.

BAKING

Chocolate Brownie Cookies – these are delicious! They bring together the gooey goodness of a brownie with the chocolatey chewiness of a cookie. Just remember to roll them into big balls before putting in the oven (this will prevent them going flat).

Please share your family’s weekly meal plan in the comments below. I’ll pick one to share every few weeks instead of mine as it’s great to get variety and share what other families eat too!
