Vegan Menu Plan | Week 4

This the last week of the vegan menu plans. When I decided to take part in the Veganuary Challenge I knew that the key to me successfully completing it was to plan, plan, plan. I have grown to enjoy cooking and I am quite good at thinking up meals on the spot but that is for meat filled dinners. Vegan food is a bit different to my usual cooking. Whilst I have cooked a lot of vegan food in the past it just isn’t something that comes naturally to me. So I thought I would plan all of my meals for the month in advance and to help anyone else who wants to give Vegan eating a try.

Now that I have completed the whole Veganuary Challenge I can tell you that it is well worth giving it a go. I feel much healthier, I lost all my excess Christmas weight, I am less hungry between meals and the food has been more delicious and packed full of flavour than I ever imagined.

So for the final weeks plan….

Breakfast

Apple Pie Porridge

This recipe by Nourish Your Glow really lifts porridge to another level. I normally find porridge so dull but this was delicious. I ate this for 4 mornings.

Maple Granola & Yogurt

Again I used my Granola recipe and added some berries and a little soya yogurt because it is super easy to make and will keep for about 10 days in an air tight container.

Vegan menu plan. This Vegan Maple and Almond Granola is the perfect compliment to any breakfast. It is healthy and delicious. And adaptable to your own personal taste. #recipe #vegan #veganuary #veganbreakfast

Lunch

Leek and Potato Soup by Vegan Huggs.

Carrot and Coriander by Delicious Everyday.

Dinner

Quinoa and Kidney Bean Burger

These burgers were really good but truthfully I used pinto beans instead of kidney beans simply because myself and Hubby prefer them.

Yasai Katsu Curry

This recipe by Lazy Cat Kitchen has been adapted from the Wagamamas recipe. This dinner was one of our favourites from the week. It was seriously delicious!

Jambalaya

I have loved Jambalaya for years. Anything spicy is always a winner for me so when I found this recipe by Cilantro and Citronella I had to give it a try. I was not disappointed, it was as good as I had hoped.

Oven Baked Refried Bean Taquitos

This is another recipe by Lauren Carris Cooks. I think you could probably eat everything on her website and not be disappointed. These Taquitos are as good as ever, I used pinto beans.

Lemon and Edamame Bean Risotto

Hubby isn’t a huge fan of risotto but I really am and so is Ellie so I thought this would be a good one to try. Plus we all love Edamame.

Vegan Red Lentil Dahl

I make lentil Dahl as one of our semi regular meals anyway so I knew this would be well received and easy to make… Not to mention yummy.

Stir Fry with Rice Noodles

I made this one up as I went along. To cook with I used some coconut oil and added all of our favourite vegetables; mange tout, edamame, carrot matchsticks, bean sprouts and anything else I could find. I added the cooked rice noodles and seasoned it with some Soy Sauce.

    All the meals sound amazing and the Katsu Curry looks stunning – I have had that from Wagamama before due to a mix up (I should have had the chicken) and it was delicious. Can’t say it’s something I could do – I am Keto at the moment so it’s all about the meat for me, but your selection has surprised me in regards to Vegan cooking!

      I love the Katsu Curry in Wagamamas so I was keen to give it a go. The variety over the 4 week challenge really surprised me too.

    Oooh, these look lovely. I’m trying to reduce the amount of meat we eat. Predominantly because of the cost to feed 7 of us. I’m starting slowly though by bulking out with lentils rather than all the meat I originally used. I’m glad you’ve enjoyed your vegan month.

      Meat is so expensive! This definitely saved me money in the long run.

    Your meal plan for the week sounds yummy. I’d love to try some but I’d need to convince my hubby who is a meat fiend.

      My Hubby was/is too. He doesn’t mind the odd vegan meal now… I had to choose wisely for the first few and made ones I knew he would like x

    I am a vegetarian but I have been eating more vegan food as of late and it sometimes surprises me as to how delicious vegan food can be. The Katsu curry and the dhaal has definitely got my name on it.

    Wow, good for you to on your weeks of going Vegan. I guess I will try some of your menu here. I will first do the Yasai Katsu Curry. I hope I can successfully make it.

    That Apple Pie Porridge sounds delicious and I can never resist a curry.

  7. February 14, 2018 / 9:03 pm

    Great meal plan! The food sounds delicious. I really want to go vegan for ethical and health reasons but meat is so ingrained into my way of life I think it’ll be tricky! X #bloggerclubuk

    These vegan meals look and sound very scrummy. I need to add some if these to my meal list

  9. March 20, 2018 / 8:42 pm

    Yum! Every meal sounds scrumptious I could eat them all! With the rise of vegan restaurants around me they’ve slowly but surely become my go to places!
