Weekly Meal Plan Releases

SmartyPlants - Plant Based Weekly Meal Plan - Released on 5-13-22


By SmartyPlants | May 13, 2022

This week, we thought we'd take you on a trip to a few places around the big blue marble.🌎

We love to experiment with new ingredients, spices, textures and tastes that are well-loved around the world, but may be new to us. And, of course we put our own plant-powered SmartyPlants twists on them.

We also think it’s exciting to try preparation methods that may be new to us. Hey, that’s the fun part! This means that we’re learning and growing and passing along all of our new found knowledge to others—(you!)✌🏼

This week, we have you rolling, stuffing, steaming and roasting like the rock star plant-powered chef that you are!


Get ready to add 3 unbelievably tasty dishes from Poland, Mexico and China to your favorites list!

This Week’s World Flavor Recipes:

⭐️Tamales with Roasted Poblano Peppers⭐️

⭐️Cabbage Rolls⭐️

⭐️Chinese Eggplant with Garlic Sauce⭐


Tamales with Roasted Poblano Peppers 
There is nothing like fresh, homemade tamales! And, they are surprisingly simple to make. Tamales are made with masa, a corn dough made from masa harina, which is a corn flour. Tamales are so versatile that you can use all kinds of tasty combinations for fillings, but we love to mix our Pepper Jack Cheese with roasted poblano peppers and ancho pepper-spiced pinto beans and for a creamy, smokey and slightly spicy combo. Yum! We gently steam them so they come out light, fluffy and super delicious. Spice up your life with these amazing tamales!

Cabbage Rolls
There are many different varieties of cabbage rolls, but I think ours is closest to Polish Stuffed Cabbage Rolls called Golabki, pronounced GO-WUMP-KEY. Isn’t that fun to say? We stuff our rolls with a mixture of our tasty Beef-Style Crumbles, rice, spices and our Almond Parmesan (because that makes everything better!), and then coat them with a simple tasty Red Sauce. Not only are these tender rolls delicious, but the cabbage is a powerhouse of antioxidants and boosts immunity!

Chinese Eggplant with Garlic Sauce
This sweet and savory dish highlights the beautiful, bright purple Chinese eggplant! This popular Chinese take-out favorite is delicious, but unfortunately it comes loaded with oil from most restaurants. We skip the oil (it doesn’t need it!) because Chinese eggplant softens up beautifully in the oven and it almost melts in your mouth. We add Shiitake mushrooms, sliced peppers, green onions and a delicious garlic sauce that has a touch of sweetness to it. Served over Udon noodles, this dish will make you forget take-out for good.
