Weekly Meal Plan Releases

SmartyPlants Weekly Meal Plan - Released on 9-17-21


By SmartyPlants | September 17, 2021

This week, we put some serious thought into what we like to eat each week, and came up pasta, tacos and burgers. Many of us have these meals in our our weekly rotation, but we get stuck making the same ones over and over.
We decided to jazz things up a bit.

The fun part of cooking your own food, is that you get to experiment with a world of flavors, spices, textures!
This week we’re even adding a super cool, exotic fruit to the mix! Yep. We’ve created 3 fantastic dishes, that will instantly skyrocket your Pasta Night, Taco Tuesday, and Burger night!

We're talking about Spinach and Artichoke Fettuccine, Mushroom and Swiss Burgers, and Jackfruit Carnitas Tostadas!


Fettuccine with Spinach and Artichoke Hearts
Don’t you just love classic spinach and artichoke dip? It’s warm, creamy, cheesy and comforting. For our Fettuccine, we turned that sensational dip into a sauce that tastes just as decadent as the dip, yet is made with 100% plants! We add lemon zest to brighten things up, and a few grinds of fresh black pepper for kick. With just a few simple ingredients, this spectacular dish tastes gourmet, yet comes together super quickly. Wow!

Mushroom and Swiss Burgers
We bring bistro flavors together—caramelized onions, sautéed mushrooms and melted cheese, for our mouthwatering Mushroom and Swiss Burgers. The burgers themselves are packed with flavor, and cooked in a hot pan, so they develop a nice crust. And, when we pop them onto toasty buns, smother them in our tangy Swiss Cheese Sauce, add all the fixings, plus some peppery arugula, it’s next level deliciousness.

Jackfruit Carnitas Tostadas
For our Tostadas, we first make Carnitas using jackfruit, an exotic tropical fruit that looks and tastes like shredded meat when it’s cooked. As it browns in the pan, the jackfruit develops a nice golden brown crust, and transforms into a super tasty plant-powered Tostada filling! We keep our Tostadas simple, so the flavor of our delicious Carnitas can really stand out. We top our them with a sprinkling of chopped red onion, cilantro, a dollop of Guacamole and a drizzle of our Cashew Sour Cream, to cool things off. It’s also fun to experiment with all of  your favorite toppings—shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes, jalapeños slices, salsa, sliced green onions. This is a great weeknight meal, because the Carnitas come together in 20 minutes!

Jackfruit Carnitas
If you like Mexican food, you’re probably familiar with carnitas, or “little meats”—a Mexican dish that is traditionally made with shredded pork. For our Carnitas, we replace the pork with jackfruit, an exotic tropical fruit with a stringy texture that actually resembles shredded meat. Jackfruit is packed with nutrients and antioxidants, and really soaks up the flavor of sautéed onions and spices. Our plant-powered version of Carnitas is incredibly delicious—tender, with crispy edges, and super flavorful! It’s amazing as a taco filling, rolled into burritos, or piled high on top of crispy tostadas.
