Dinner Plan || August 23, 2023

This week’s dinner plan is here to the dinner rush rescue. Eliminate dinner decision fatigue with our round up of family dinner winners.

Raise your hand if summer is over in your house. Is it just me or did I blink and school was out and now it’s back in session?

It’s back to school and that means back to the dinner rush of getting healthy, homemade meals on the table amidst after school activities, carpools and overall chaos that is affectionately known to many of us as the “dinner rush hour”. 

This week’s dinner plan is here to the rescue!

In case you need the reminder, make sure you have these 3 tasks scheduled in your calendar this week:

#2 On Friday or Saturday: Head to the grocery store. 

#3 On Saturday or Sunday: Get your meal prep done for the week! (Vegan Dinner Club members get a done-for-you step by step plan so all you need to do is follow along.)

Now, onto the recipes!

The Dinner Plan

Casserole dish filled with pasta and topped with basil on a cutting board next to a bowl of basil and a bowl of basil alfredo sauce

Basil Alfredo Pasta

This dreamy pasta features our Vegan Basil Alfredo Sauce . This is a kid favorite. I use whatever pasta my kids request and serve it up with my famous dining room table salad bar. Dinner winner!

Two pita bread halves stuffed with lettuce, tomato, and chickpeas on a cutting board next to a napkin and bowl of chickpea tuna salad

Chickpea “Tuna” Pita Pockets

Two bowls of romaine topped with lentils, tabbouleh, hummus and feta cheese, on a place mat with a napkin

Lentil Shawarma Quinoa Salad Bowls

4 tacos on a cutting board surrounded by bowls of jackfruit and beans, chimichurri sauce, cilantro leaves, chopped red onion, half an avocado and lime wedges

Teriyaki Tempeh & Broccoli

This easy stir-fry has just 3 ingredients: our homemade Garlic Teriyaki Sauce, tempeh and broccoli florets. Serve it with jasmine or sushi rice for an easy dinner winner.

Prep Ahead Tips

Chickpea “Tuna” Salad

Fava Bean Spread and Lentil Shawarma

Having these two meal components ready ahead of time makes quick work of the quinoa salad bowls.

Vegan Basil Alfredo Sauce

This finger licking good sauce is the magic in our Basil Pesto Pasta. (That and the balsamic glazed mushrooms and tomatoes!)

Garlic Teriyaki Sauce

You could use a store-bought bottle but this one is so easy to make! It’s the glaze for our tempeh and broccoli stir-fry.
