THE RECIPES
Fully Loaded Cheesy Black Bean Nachos
by @avantgardevegan

It doesn't get much easier than topping tortilla chips with some beans, diced avocado and salsa. These nachos call for a homemade cashew-based cheese sauce that we suggest doubling up on so you can you use it to top baked potatoes later in the week. If you have time, you can also prep more of the tomatoes and beans in anticipation for Tuesday's salad.

Turmeric Cumin Chickpeas and Pumpkin Salad
by @healthyeating_jo

The key to this salad is the spiced chickpeas, which you can make extra of to use in tomorrow's salad and Friday's soup. The pumpkin can easily be substituted for any winter squash variety or sweet potatoes.

Feedfeed Tip There is no need to peel acorn squash before roasting! Just be sure give it a good scrub before roasting to remove any wax that may have been used to preserve the skin.
 
Southwest Style Salad
by @the_blossoming_vegan

Take out the spiced chickpeas from the night before and use them in place of the baked sweet potato chips that this recipe calls for. Remember all those toppings you used for the nachos, well now you can make a salad from them!
Baked Potato with Tzatziki, Veggies and Herbs
by @voilavegan

Use the leftover cheese sauce from Monday night's dinner in place of the tzatziki to cut down on the time this dinner takes to put together!


Feedfeed Tip There is nothing simpler than a baked potato, but there are a few key steps to making sure you get perfectly cooked potatoes every time! Rub the potato skin with olive oil and season it with salt and pepper, then bake it in the oven directly on the oven rack for about 60-70 minutes. Let cool slightly before cutting in half.
 
Creamy Spinach Noodles
by @monsflavors

The spinach sauce for these noodles is quick and easy. Just blanch your greens, sauté the aromatics and, add coconut cream before topping cooked noodles of choice.
