Last week, I talked about how I sometimes plan meals around an International theme. Another fun way that I mix things up a bit is to plan meals around various cookbooks. In the vegan, gluten free world, I find that a lot of cookbooks have a certain flavor or style… The recipes in one book might use a lot of nutritional yeast, while the recipes in another use a lot of nuts. By using a different cookbook each night we get a variety!
Here’s the lineup of this week’s cookbooks:
Sunday – Vegan Vittles by Joanne Stepaniak
Monday – Ten Talents by Rosalie Hurd
Tuesday – Great Vegetarian Cooking Under Pressure by Lorna Sass
Wednesday – The New Moosewood Restaurant Cookbook by Mollie Katzen
Thursday – The Ultimate Uncheese cookbook by Joanne Stepaniak
Friday – On Friday night I’ll use my binder that is full of recipes I’ve collected over the years
Saturday – The Garden of Vegan by Tanya Barnard and Sara Kramer
Menu Plan Monday is the brain-child of Laura at “I’m an Organized Junkie.” Each week she posts her own menu plan and LOTS of other bloggers link their weekly menus to hers. Click here to check it out! Most of the menus are not vegan or gluten free but some are so there are plenty of ideas for everyone!
