Vegan Week: Plan Your Meals for the Entire Week

Vegan Meal Prep

You stay healthy by exercising, sleeping properly, and eating healthy, that's it. Our busy lifestyles make it hard to cook before or after work, maybe if we had one or two more hours a day we could, but we don't! When we do have time it is during the weekend so this is why we prepared this post to help you meal prep during the weekend so that you eat healthy during the whole week without a sweat.

When you finish reading this blog post you will know what you need to have 7 ready-to-eat meals for the week and that includes the ingredients!

Let's meal prep!!

7-Day Vegan Meal Plan

 

Day 1: Grilled Vegan Burrito

Vegan Grilled Burrito

This grilled vegan burrito recipe is delicious and extremely quick and easy to prepare. It shouldn't take you more than 20 minutes to prepare and as soon as you are done it will be ready to pack and refrigerate. Since this recipe is so healthy and quick to prepare we will be having burritos on day 6 too.

Serving Size: 2 burritos

Preparation time: 20 minutes

Ingredients

For the cream

  • ¾ cup of non-dairy milk of your choice
  • ¾ cup of your favorite sauce
  • ½ cup of cashew nuts
  • ½ cup of walnuts
  • 1 tablespoon of lemon juice (optional)

For the burritos

  • 2 tortilla wraps (gluten-free, if desired)
  • ¾ cup of cooked brown rice (white is fine too)
  • ¾ cup of canned black beans drained and rinsed
  • ½ of an avocado, sliced
  • Sea salt to taste
  • ½ of our homemade cream to taste
  • Corn and chopped coriander for topping (optional)

Instructions

For the cream

  1. Blend up all of the ingredients until creamy and well integrated. Set aside.

For the burritos

  1. Combine the cooked rice and beans in a bowl, add salt to taste.
  2. Heat a pan big enough for the tortillas and warm the tortillas up for less than a minute, don't forget to turn them around.
  3. Place the tortillas on a cupboard and put half of the bean-rice mixture in the middle of each tortilla. Make sure that the tortillas are soft and if they are not, you can microwave them for 20 seconds.
  4. Seve the sliced avocado on top of the bean-rice mixture.
  5. Roll up the tortilla like a burrito like a video below is showing.
  6. Place the burrito with the opening facing down over a skillet and cook over medium-low heat for 2 minutes or until the opening is sealed and the tortilla is toasted. You should be able to flip the burrito without any problem but check it frequently so it doesn't burn.
  7. Turn over the burrito and let it cook for about 2 minutes until the tortilla is golden brown.
  8. Once both sides are golden brown, place the burritos in your container and pack the cream separate. 

That's it, you've got your first meal of the week!

 

Day 2: Vegan Bean Burgers

Vegan Bean Burgers

We all crave for a burger once in a while as this is really the ultimate comfort food. Knowing this, let's go ahead and include a vegan bean burger that is healthy and nutritious in our 7-day vegan meal plan.

This recipe has a special twist: toppings. They add a unique flavor that makes them super different from other burgers you've tried before. 

Serving Size: 4 hamburgers

Preparation time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

For hamburgers

  • ½ cup of uncooked farro (equivalent to 1 cup of cooked farro)
  • ½ cup of cooked black beans
  • ¼ cup of cooked potatoes (preferably red)
  • ¼ cup of sauce (you can use the same one you used for the burritos)
  • 2 tablespoons of cornflour
  • A pinch of sea salt
  • 4 hamburger buns (you can also use lettuce if you don't want carbohydrates)

For toppings

  • 2 cups of cabbage
  • ½ cup of avocado
  • Sea salt to taste

Instructions

  1. Make sure the beans and potatoes are well cooked. Try to cook the potato in the microwave or in the oven, as boiling adds a lot of moisture to the mixture and we must avoid it.
  2. Cook the farro following the instructions that come in the package. 
  3. While you cook the farro, prepare the avocado salad by crushing it. Then add the cabbage and salt.
  4. Once the farro is done, add the desired amount to your food processor and press until it is lightly chopped.
  5. Now add the beans, potatoes, the sauce, the flour and mix them all again until you have a slightly thick consistency. Don't over-process it or you'll get a sauce-like consistency and we don't want that.
  6. Place the mixture in a bowl, taste it and adjust the salt to taste.
  7. Refrigerate for at least 20 minutes (ideally one hour). You can also prepare it a day in advance and leave it refrigerated overnight. This allows the flavors to marinate and combine perfectly for a better flavor.
  8. Once the mixture is ready, make 4 patties with your hands (try to make them about the same size). Cook them on the grill or bake at 375°F (190°C) for 5 minutes per side.

Improve your burgers with as many toppings as you want, I love caramelized onion for instance! Pack and enjoy, you've got your meal of day 2 ready! 

 

Day 3: Stuffed Pesto Portobellos

Pesto Stuffed Portobello

After yesterday's burger recipe, you might want to prepare something easier for day 3. I'm sure that these delicious and healthy portobellos will fill your heart with love and your belly with happiness!


Serving Size: 4 people / 2 cups pesto

Preparation time: 35 minutes

Ingredients

For homemade pesto:

  • 8 cups of a mixture of baby kale and baby arugula
  • 2 cups of pine nuts
  • 8 medium garlic cloves
  • 2 cups of vegetable broth without tomato (water if not using broth)
  • Sea salt to taste

For the Portobellos

  • 4 cups of the cooked farro
  • 4 large portobello mushrooms
  • 4 cups of baby kale and baby arugula (or the green leaves of your choice)
  • 1 cups of chopped spring onions
  • Vegetable broth or vegetable oil for sauté-ing
  • Sea salt to taste
  • Your homemade pesto

Instructions

  1. Make your pesto: place all the ingredients in a food processor or blender and mix until you have the desired consistency. Set aside.
  2. Wash and clean the portobellos.
  3. Wash your mixture of green leaves and chop them if you want them in smaller pieces.
  4. Sauté the onions in a frying pan using a little vegetable broth or oil until softened. Add the green mixture and cook until they begin to shrink and soften. Add the cooked farro and cook for a few more minutes. Add salt to taste and remove from heat.
  5. Place the portobellos on a baking sheet covered with baking paper. Spread the farro mixture over the portobellos, then pour a little of the pesto on them (to taste). Bake at 350°F (180°C) for 15-20 minutes, until mushrooms are soft.

Put them in your favorite container let's continue!
