My usual Friday thread! Vegan all June so:
Tonight: peppers stuffed with spicy cous cous
Tomorrow: out at a srilankan restaurant
Sunday: Tuscan bean stew and ciabatta
Monday: lentil and mushroom ragu with pasta
Tuesday: falafel, pitta, hummus, olives.
Wednesday: Jamaican red beans and rice
Thursday: chana dal
Friday: schzuan potato stirfry

Not done mine yet - it's one of my jobs for later.

something with rice and peas, now I've seen yours!

haloumi and vege kebabs, because dd2 is having a haloumi craze

veggie chilli with guacamole, because dp has been mithering for it

quiche and salad - I might make two quiches as I fancy trying something new but dd2 only ever wants cheese and onion

some sort of curry, because it's obligatory!

something with chips, for a lazy meal

Lentil & mushroom ragu sounds immense, can you share the recipe pretty please? I have loads of lentils I want to use up - I know they won't go off but I don't want them to languish too long. Plus I love a lentil, but don't really ever know what to do with them.


Monday - veggie chilli with rice and guacamole
Tuesday - haloumi kebabs with salad
Wednesday - quiche, new potatoes and salad
Thursday - channa dahl with chapatis and salad
Friday - freezer crap (Quorn whatever) with chips and homemade mushy peas
Some point over the weekend possibly - tacos with sweetcorn and courgette (Thomasina Miers) and also a mixed beany thing (recipe by Remus)

Oooh, these all sound great! I need to plan, the week just runs away with me if I don't.

CaptainWarbeck Sun 05-Jun-16 14:04:22

Lazy week planned for us as we've all had colds and not much enthusiasm for cooking.

Pumpkin cappelletti & sauce
(bought, cooked, super easy)
Baked sweet potatoes, baked beans & boursin
Veggie shepherds pie
Spicy black bean and feta burgers
Veggie spinach & mushroom carbonara
Frittata & baked beans
Mushroom & leek baked risotto... possibly with garlic bread

CaptainWarbeck Sun 05-Jun-16 14:06:26

I second the request for the ragu please queen. I reckon that sounds like it would be tasty with polenta.

Bails2014 Sun 05-Jun-16 14:16:25

This week I've got as far as mini-beef Wellington and asparagus, parma ham and pesto pasta.

And now I'm on mumsnet instead of looking at recipes!

OhTheRoses Sun 05-Jun-16 14:18:29

All done.
Sun: Code baked with spinach and cheese sauce with croquet potatoes and peas
Mon: Little burgers, garlic chicken fillets, parmentier potatoes, salad.
Tues: Spinach and ricotta pasta with tub of cheese sauce, garlic bread and salad.
Weds: Chilli con carne, rice and salad.
Thurs: Lemony, curried chicken thighs, rice and green beans
Fri: Salmon steaks, pasta with pesto, asparagus and some leaves.

DS is home from uni and dh home all next week hence so much meat.

CaptainW - any chance of a recipe for the burgers, pretty please?

lastqueenofscotland Sun 05-Jun-16 21:44:06

CaptainWarbeck Mon 06-Jun-16 00:19:22

How's your vegan month going lastqueen? I know lots of your food tends toward vegan anyway, are you missing cheese? Thread derailment but wondered what the shift was for and if it's a permanent change?

We're off camping tomorrow so I've made a ton of vegan burgers and will mainly subsist on them and snacks all week until we reward ourselves with a luxury hotel at the end of the trip!

lastqueenofscotland Fri 10-Jun-16 19:23:47

I miss chocolate more than anything! I will definitely eat much much much more vegan food, maybe do 3/4 days vegan a week after this? But I wouldn't stick to it forever. I have been dreaming about malteasers haha
