It’s been a long holiday season. I’m pretty tired and looking forward to some downtime to recover my energy. So for the first menu plan of 2010, here’s a simple menu plan for a (hopefully) simple week. I even found some pages of the Moosewood Cooks at Home cookbook that are online through google books, so I was able to link to the original recipes for you. Doesn’t get more simple than that! Almost everything else isn’t based on a recipe – it’s more a “throw a sweet potato in the toaster oven” and “simmer a can of diced tomatoes into a pot with spices and other stuff from the fridge” kind of week.
Butternut squash and sage soup, Udi’s GF toast with almond butter
Rice pasta shells with broccoli rabe, arugula, and homemade tomato sauce with Sicilian black olives, capers, red onion, garlic, baby potatoes, thyme and marjoram
Braised kale with sesame oil, Veganomicon broiled lemon tofu with tahini sauce, brown rice
Baked sweet potato, polenta with tempeh bacon
And that’s it, because honestly I’ll be lucky if I make that many meals this week, and the rest will be Little Chihuahua, Best of Thai Noodle, and Tasty Bites.
Find more inspiration at the Gluten-Free Menu Swap, hosted this week by Asparagus Thin with the theme of Movies (so sorry, this would have been a really fun theme, but it was all I could do to pull together a menu – a theme was beyond me this week) and the huge round-up of Menu Plan Monday posts over at OrgJunkie.
