Weekly Meal Plan: Beans all Week!

Weekly Meal Plan: Beans all Week!

Deciding what to make for dinner is half the battle. With a little structure in place, we help eliminate some of the guess work involved, while still offering lots of room for variety. Here's how we structure our week (or at least try to!):


1. MONDAY: Bean Bowls 

Try a Lemon Tahini bowl with chickpeas to kick off the week. Or make a big batch of Classic Hummus and add it to your bowl along with some roasted vegetables and nuts.

2. TUESDAY: Taco Night (obvs.)

Top your tortilla with some Black Bean Paste or Refried Peruano Beans. Add roasted sweet potato or cauliflower, sliced avocado, pickled onions, or whatever else you crave. Use a bean layer as your base and load it up from there!

3. WEDNESDAY: Curry in a Hurry

Lentil Dal is a great weeknight dinner. Serve it over turmeric rice with some naan bread and a side of roasted cauliflower. Or try Chickpea Masala in Coconut Broth to pack a punch mid-week.

4. THURSDAY: Sheet Pan Day

Throw a bunch of veggies on a tray and roast them all together. Technically this is another bean bowl night, but you can't go wrong with a single dish and easy clean up. Sheet pan recipes are hard not to love. Serve over cooked quinoa, farro, or pasta if you're okay with adding another pot to the mix...or just eat it straight up without any additions.

5. FRIDAY: Burgers (bean, of course)

Bean burgers take a bit of planning and effort, but when done right, they're delicious and satisfying and give you a chance to pair them with sweet potato fries:) You can make these over a weekend, freeze them and just pull them out when ready. Try this Sweet Potato and Black Bean Burger recipe as a start.

6. SATURDAY: Leftovers

Take a day off. Enjoy leftovers. 


7. SUNDAY: Soups + Stews

Weekends are perfect for cooking up a big batch of Brothy Beans or soups that can simmer for hours. We love to make these on Sunday so that you can have leftovers all week long!
