Cook Once, Eat All Week

A few easy mushroom dishes can be transformed into a week’s worth of healthy meals.


| January / February 2018


Everyone loves a warm, homemade meal, but finding the time to cook is another story. And yet, armed with a little bit of meal-planning ingenuity, you can ensure your evenings are as stress-free as they are nourishing and delicious. Taking antioxidant-rich mushrooms as our beneficial-ingredient theme here, we’ll start by batch-cooking three simple dishes you’ll use to compose your first meal: hearty Rosemary Lentils, flavorful Mushroom “Bacon” and a rich Wild Mushroom Chowder.

Then, you can use these pre-cooked recipes to make three additional spin-off dinners during the week: Rosemary-Lentil Tacos with Cabbage-Apple Slaw, Portobello Stroganoff and a vegetarian MBLTA (Mushroom Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato, Avocado) Sandwich. You’ll save an impressive amount of time, while enjoying an array of fresh, nutritious entrees. Find the grocery list for these recipes below … and let’s get cooking!
