It’s still cold here in North Carolina so I’m super excited for this heart warming coconut curry for lunches this week!

My husband made a special request for Thug Kitchen’s veggie and tofu chilaquiles. If you haven’t made a vegan version of chilaquiles yet, I highly recommend it!

Here’s what’s on the menu:

Breakfast: Veggie chilaquiles from the Thug Kitchen Cookbook for him and oatmeal bowls for me

Lunch: Sweet potato, chickpea, and spinach coconut curry from the Oh She Glows Cookbook

Dinner: Ultimate green taco wraps from the Oh She Glows Cookbook

This is a short video about the meals I’m prepping (you can also find it on my Instagram).

 

These meals were a bit more labor intensive. As I mention in my video, it took me about 3 hours to prep these meals. I typically like to keep my Monday meal preps under 2 hours but with this being a special week (Valentine’s Day), I allowed it 🙂

Now my fridge and I are happy campers!

Step by step process:

spicy peanut soup prep for meal prep monday on cutting board

  1. I prepped the spicy peanut soup first and threw it into the instant pot to cook.
  2. While it was cooking, I quickly mixed up the muesli and prepped the tofu scramble.
  3. While the tofu scramble was simmering on the stove, I prepped my veggies and cashew cheese for the rice and bean bowls.
  4. The soup finished in the instant pot so I carefully added it to a large pot and then used the instant pot to cook my rice.
  5.  While the rice cooked, I wrapped up my tofu scramble in burritos.
  6. When the rice finished, I mixed in a couple cans of black beans and portioned them out into our lunch containers.
  7. I added the prepped veggies to the rice and bean burrito bowls and that’s a wrap!

 

My fridge and I are now happy campers! Our meals are prepped and ready to go for the week.
