It was a wonderful week with no drama! I finished the last class in my 4-week Plant-Based Bootcamp and although I was sad to see it come to end, I am rolling right into my new course, Plant-Based 2.0! If you have prior knowledge of plant-based eating and would like to participate in this more advanced course, feel free to check it out here. I am offering my website subscribers and previous bootcampers $100 off the course with the code YESPB2.
For my monthly online cooking class students, I am filming your class this week and will have it uploaded no later than February 10! It’s a great class!
Who is making a fun spread for the Super Bowl? Even though it’s just going to the be the 4 of us, I’m still planning all the snacks!! Here’s your dinner planner for the week:
Meatless Monday: How about an all veggie dinner? Try the Hasselback Sweet Potatoes. While you’re roasting the sweet potatoes, on a sheet pan roast sliced red onion, broccoli and kale, tossed in olive oil and sea salt, to roast as well. Let the veggies get crisp in the oven and when ready squeeze some lemon juice and drizzle tahini on top or make this lemon-tahini sauce.
Wednesday: Mixed green salad with green beans, almonds and dried cherry vinaigrette, simple broiled fillet of sole or flounder (there’s a recipe in KM p. 198)
Thursday: Chicken posole verde with radish, cabbage and avocado garnishes (My son also likes tortilla chips. We are fine eating just this, but a quesadilla or salad is a nice accompaniment if you need something more.) Swap pinto beans for the chicken if you want to make this meat-free.
Saturday brunch: This Warming Winter Smoothie from The Minimalist Baker
Sunday (Super Bowl): Taco pizza
Here are some of my favorite Super Bowl eats:
- Turkey and Black Bean Chili, Vegetable Chili, slow cooker sweet potato and black bean chili, Cornbread, Baked Potatoes and topping bar, Mexican Chopped Salad
- Meatball subs, homemade pizzas, Vegetarian Antipasto Chopped Salad, Mini Lasagne Cupcakes, Italian 7-layer dip
- Taco bar (Ground Beef , barbacoa, slow cooker chicken, and Fish), Refried beans, Cilantro-Lime Slaw, Arroz Verde
Here’s what you can do ahead if it helps you:
Wash salad greens
Make lemon-tahini sauce
Make dried cherry vinaigrette
Make spice mix for sheet pan dinner
Blanch green beans
Make chicken stock, if making from scratch
Cook black rice
Make tomatillo sauce for posole
Make vegan queso
Cook black beans, if making from scratch
