Plant-Based Food Weekly Menu 4

By Fredrica Syren:

This week we’re in Sweden, trying to stay cool in a heatwave by going to the beach as much as possible. Dinners will be lighter at times and fast to make because who wants to slave at in a hot kitchen? Not me!

My family loves tacos and this week I will make mushroom tacos and serve them with guacamole, lots of salad, fruits and maybe a homemade salsa. They are easy and fast to make. The lentil salad and bruschetta are perfect for those warm days when you just want to bring food outside and eat by the water or in park. I have a special place in my heart for foods served in a jar and my cheese cake in a jar is fun and easy to bring as a picnic food.
