Weekly Vegetarian Meal Plan #3

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

This week’s family meal plan features 100% vegetarian dinner ideas, making it perfect for families that prefer meat-free meals.

My youngest daughter prefers to eat vegetarian food, so I try my best to make the occasional meat-free dinner for her to enjoy. I know a lot of other people in my community also opt for plant-based diets, which is why I’ve dedicated this meal plan to 100% vegetarian dishes. If you have any veggie recipes that you love to make for your family, please comment them below.

Vegetable Fritter with Poached Egg – veggie fritters are so simple to make, plus they’re a great way to use any extra vegetables you have in the bottom of the fridge. I love the idea of adding an egg to these too – how yummy?!

Vegetarian Spaghetti – you don’t need to reinvent the wheel when cooking vegetarian meals, sometimes a simple pasta with a good mix of tasty ingredients is all you need. This spaghetti can only be made in one pot (bonus!) and includes a delicious mix of mushrooms, spinach and parmesan.

Gnocchi Bake – I have learnt that my go-to meat dishes can often be tweaked to exclude meat. A veggie mince can be used in this recipe in place of the beef mince, resulting in a super tasty vegetarian dinner.

Falafel Burgers – burgers are a great dinner option when you’re catering for both meat eaters and vegetarians. Falafel burgers can be made from scratch or simply pick up some of the ready-to-go patties from the supermarket.

Chinese Takeaway – Asian inspired cuisines are great for when you’re wanting meat-free dinners. They are often packed with veggies and flavour, and offer hearty vegetarian additions like tofu or mushrooms.


Vegetarian BBQ – there are lots of yummy things you can make for a vegetarian BBQ; like stuffed mushrooms, store-bought veggie sausages, or homemade veggie skewers (with haloumi – yum!). You can throw a few snags on for the meat-eaters too.

Veggie Ramen – if you haven’t tried ramen before, think of it as a tasty mix of soup, noodles, veggies and the obligatory boiled egg. Full of flavour and very good for you too!

  Find this Veggie Ramen Bowl recipe here.


Zucchini Chocolate Brownies – there’s no reason you can’t get more veggies into your chocolate treats! These brownies are unbelievable delicious. The zucchini makes them really soft, and the kids won’t even notice there are veggies in them.

Tonight I made an egg casserole. So super easy and I use whatever I have in the fridge as the “flavor” ingredients. I used maple summer sausage, yellow bell pepper and onions instead of the ham and asparagus tonight.
Egg Casserole 2020
12 large eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup (4 oz.) ham -chopped
2 cups asparagus -chopped (2-3 inch pieces)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9 x 13 pan with cooking spray.
In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, salt, and pepper.
Stir in the cheese and ham.
Pour the mixture into the pie plate. Push the ham around to make sure that it is evenly distributed throughout the dish.
Spread the asparagus out evenly over the top of the egg mixture.
Bake for 30 minutes, or until the center is set. Let cool at least 2 minutes before slicing.
