Mr S is away this week, so it is just me, the lodger and the cats! The lodger can take care of her own meals, thank goodness, so I can please myself. I am still trying to get through the bulk purchase of Quorn that I bought on offer months ago, before I realised nobody likes Quorn…. my challenge is to use up quite a lot of it in this week’s vegetarian meal plan.
I am also giving myself an easy week by doubling up on meals. I will make enough for four, eat two portions over a couple of days and freeze the rest for another time. I barely need to buy anything – just milk, fruit, some oil, some salad leaves and maybe some broccoli, so it is going to be a very cheap week.
A vegetarian meal plan
Quorn spaghetti bolognese. I will use this recipe from BBC Good Food, as I think the addition of red wine will make it more tasty. We have a bottle open and I am not drinking alcohol at the moment so I need to use it up anyway.
I will make a salad from lettuce, spinach and grated raw carrot.
You guessed it – I will have the Quorn spaghetti bolognese again and eat it with more of the salad.
Potato curry. I will try to publish this recipe next week. I really enjoyed it and it is so cheap and tasty. I will make four portions and freeze two.
My daughter will be round for tea. She is not a curry fan, so instead we will have veggie burgers from the freezer with sweet potato chips cooked in my VonShef Digital Air Fryer and some salad.
More of the potato curry with rice.
Vegetable sausages from the freezer with mashed potatoes and broccoli. I am still on the search for the perfect non-soya veggie banger. These are from Asda and are butternut squash, sweet potato and red pepper sausages. They are OK, but not really what I call a sausage – more a vegetable pattie.
My usual Friday omelette, possibly with air fryer chips, maybe just salad, depending on how hungry I am.
So, a really simple vegetarian meal plan this week. Next week I have a French student for a week, so I will have to do some shopping and have a good think about meals they might enjoy.
