Menu of the Week: Menu Plan Monday and Gluten Free Menu Swap

dinnerthisweek.jpgIt’s been so long since I’ve posted a menu of the week that I’ve almost forgotten how to do it! It’s hard to post a menu when you’re on the road and have no idea what you’ll be eating next. ;) This last week we enjoyed :

southern fried tofu with rice and garlic chili broccoli
pizza made from Chebe mix with artichoke hearts, kalamata olives, chard, and cheese
By the Bay’s wonderful Potato Knishes with my mods of chard and garlic
corn tortilla quesadilla with beans and rice
and a
Thai Peanut Noodle Salad Recipe

This coming week will feature

Monday: Middle Eastern
Lentil soup with Saffron Yogurt and Brown Basmati rice from 101 Cookbooks (Turned out very well, a delicious recipe)

Wednesday: Korean and Japanese
Gobo Kinpira with renkon saute (Rated 9/10)
Grilled Tofu Steak recipe
and Cold Bibbinba (bibimbop) Rice with vegetarian toppings

Friday: Italian
Spinach and Beet Green gnocchi with buckwheat grits
Tomato sauce

homemade gluten free artisan bread (postponed)

Saturday: Comfort Food
Brussels Sprouts Gratin (rated 2/10- will not be posting this recipe!)
Rutabaga Gratin (The closest I could find to parsnips in the store!)

Sunday: Scandinavian
Rosti Potato Recipe
Scandinavian Cucumber and Dill
Fresh Beet Salad

The gluten-free menu swap this week is hosted by Gluten Free Mommy, and the ingredient of the week is the parsnip. And of course, I always enjoy entering my meal plans over at Organizing Junkie- go check out all the meal plans over there!

  1. That lentil soup looks fantastic – as I normally have lentils and yogurt on hand, I’ll have to try it one of these days (and gratins are my favorite- we’re doing cauliflower this week but I’ll have to keep in mind brussel sprouts one of these days . . . YUM!) Have a great week!

  2. I’ve bookmarked the lentil soup recipe to try later. Looks delicious !

  3. I love a good lentil soup. Maybe I’ll try that one sometime.

  4. I believe rutabaga is what we call swede in which case I much prefer it to turnip, a gratin sounds good, I may have to copy that idea.
    The gnochi sounds intriguing as well.
    My menu is rather boring this week but it’s here if you want to see it.

  5. [...] Book of Yum’s Gluten Free Menu- she is making a rutabaga gratin this week. Now that is something I haven’t tried! I bet it will be delicious. [...]

  6. Sounds delicious as always Sea!! I’m looking forward to seeing your recipes for your korean and japanese night! The Rutabage gratin sounds delicious as well!!

  7. The salads sound yummy…cucumber and dill…fresh beet…yummy, yummy!

  8. Sarah- Thanks! I was so intrigued by the saffron yogurt I just had to try the recipe. I subbed brown lentils and sour cream and the recipe worked great. Now I really want to try those fancy lentils sometime. :) Gratins are the best, aren’t they?

    Hi Bonnie- cool, hope you liked it. The recipe was a good internet “find.” :D

    Hi Zoe- lentil soup is great on a cold, rainy night like tonight. :)

    Hi Esther- I guess the recipe was parsnip, not turnip. My mistake. :) Oh well, I’m excited to try the rutabaga. Your site is great- thanks for the link!

    Hi Carrie- Just wait, I’ll have the Japanese night recipes up really soon. I ended up turning them into a bento- very tasty AND cute on top of it!

    Hi Jenny- I’m looking forward to those salads too. I love beets, and cucumber salads can be lovely, especially with fresh dill. Crossing my fingers the recipes turn out!

    Thanks for all the comments! You made my night.


  9. I’m excited about the gluten-free artisan bread you have on Friday’s menu. Where can I find the recipe?


  10. Hi Laurie, Great to see you! I usually post recipes after I make them, so it will be a little bit until I post the recipe- here’s hoping it turns out! I’m going to try some new techniques, and I will report back as soon as I try them, I promise. :) I had some bread in Austria that inspired me. Unfortunately it also seemed to make me sick, doh. But that just makes me more determined to make killer artisan bread on my own! -Sea
