Weekly Meal Plan + Single-Serve Mexican Tortilla Pizza

in Entrees

A sneak peak into my meal plan for this week and a simple, quick, and delicious recipe for a Mexican-themed pizza for one.  Check it out!

I’d like to think that I eat good every week.  And by “good” I do not mean “perfect.”  I mean that I eat relatively healthy and deeelicious meals.  I am always fascinated by what others are eating and often use it for inspiration with my own meal plans.  As a result, I like to share my weekly meal plans with you every now and then.  Hopefully you gain some inspiration and ideas for healthy meal planning, prepping, and eating a long the way!

Weekly Meal Plan

Monday: Buffalo Cauliflower “Chicken” Sandwich + Veggies
Tuesday: Chickpea Salad on Rice Cakes
Wednesday: Veggie Pizza on Cauliflower Pizza Crust
Thursday: Leftover Vegetarian Runzas (more on these on Thursday)
Friday: Gigantic Salad with Veggies, Soynuts, and Vegan Chia Ranch Dressing
Saturday: Out
Sunday: Field Roast Vegan “Sausage” + Baked Potato + Veggies

Sometimes the dishes on my meal plans are elaborate and sometimes they are… well, lazy.  But the way I look at it, lazy is just fine when it is healthy and tastes good!

mexican pizzaOne of my recent go-to “lazy” meals has been a vegan single-serve pizza that I put a Mexican twist on.  It contains carbs from the crust, protein from the beans, and plenty of colorful and nutrient-rich vegetables.  I am also in love with the fact that it only takes about 15 minutes to make this flavorful pizza pie.

Vegan

Ingredients

1 whole wheat or sprouted tortilla (I like the Ezekiel brand)
1/2 cup vegetarian refried beans (I used spicy jalapeno refried black beans)
2 TB hummus (I recommend a spicy or red pepper version)
1 to 2 tsp plain unsweetened almond milk
5 tortilla chips (I used blue corn)
shredded lettuce
red onions, chopped
tomatoes, chopped
salsa (I used salsa verde)

Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.  Once preheated, place the tortilla on a nonstick baking sheet and bake for approximately 5 minutes.

2. While the tortilla is baking, prepare your toppings.

3. Remove tortilla from the oven and spread with refried beans.

4. Combine hummus and milk in small microwaveable dish.  Stir to combine.  Microwave for approximately 20 seconds.  Spread hummus “cheese” onto refried beans.

5. Crush tortilla chips and place on top of beans and “cheese.”

6. Bake for approximately 3 to 5 minutes.

7. Turn the broiler on low and broil for approximately 1 minute.  Watch carefully to ensure that the tortilla does not burn.

8. Remove the pizza from the oven and top with lettuce, onions, tomatoes, and salsa.

    I was just thinking about the buffalo cauliflower the other day! Still haven't made it. Is there a vegan cheese substitute similar to a mozzarella cheese? And if so, is it any good? meredith @ The Cookie ChRUNicles recently posted...Not Ready To Put The Race Medals AwayMy Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl October 20, 2014, 7:29 am
      You definitely need to give it a whirl! I know that Daiya has great sliced "cheese," but I don't remember seeing a mozzarella version. I think they just have provolone and swiss? If you find a good brand that makes a mozzarella version, let me know!

      That is the best part about pizzas like these. You do not even need extra ingredients. Sometimes when we are lazy things just need to be easy ;)
  • Joanna @Makingmine October 20, 2014, 9:06 am
    What a good idea! I might have to try this for Eleanor and I - she's a bean lover :) Joanna @Makingmine recently posted...family dining pledgeMy Profile

      Oh Eleanor, she is just the smartest eater! I love beans on pizza. They bring me back to my days when I was a major taco pizza lover.

    This looks soo good. I'm a pizza fanatic and a burrito/mexican food fiend. Combining the two would be a part in my mouth haha Pinning! GiselleR @ Diary of an ExSloth recently posted...Christmas displays, Swearing and Being YourselfMy Profile

      Thank you! I really hope you enjoy it. I generally cannot say no to anything with refried beans ;)
  • Cynthia Cover October 20, 2014, 10:31 am
    I love your idea of using hummus for the cheese...so smart and tasty! Good that it's low fat too, I am trying to be good until X-mas :) Cynthia Cover recently posted...Omaha’s #FamilyDiningWeek Pledge-Vegetable Soup is a Winner-Plus Win Hyvee GC’s, 4 tickets to the Omaha Zoo!My Profile

  • Emily @ More Than Just Dessert October 20, 2014, 12:11 pm
    Tortillas and english muffins have always been so helpful when I want to make a quick pizza dinner or snack and don't want to spend a lot of time! Love the idea of using Mexican toppings. Side note-- have you ever made pizza with cauliflower crust? Emily @ More Than Just Dessert recently posted...Internet things I think you should be reading (Did You Know? Friday)My Profile

      I have made cauliflower pizza crusts!! I LOVE them and I am excited to make one again this coming week :)
  • Ashley @ Wishes & Dishes October 20, 2014, 12:27 pm
    There is nothing wrong with lazy meals. It's still preparing meals at home and that counts for a lot! I like the idea of chickpea salad on rice cakes. Gonna try that (I'm on a pre-vacation diet)... Ashley @ Wishes & Dishes recently posted...Orange Cinnamon Poached Pears with WalnutsMy Profile

      You most definitely need to try the chickpea salad on rice cakes. It is one of my favorite lunches EVER!

  • Lori October 20, 2014, 6:36 pm
    What brands of refried beans and hummus do you use?
    • ClnEatingVegGrl October 20, 2014, 10:39 pm
      It really varies by what store I am at and what is on sale. These refried beans were Hy-Vee brand. For hummus I generally go with Cedar's or the Whole Foods brand. I just try to look for whatever has a simple ingredient list. I hope that helps!
  • Andrea D. October 20, 2014, 9:58 pm
    OH MAN. RUNZAS. YES. I'm a Lincoln girl and my grandma has been making those my whole life. Homemade Runzas are muchhhh better than the ones at Runza. If you make yours with soy meat I will have to try it, sounds amazing!
    • ClnEatingVegGrl October 20, 2014, 10:40 pm
      I made them with lentils! I just finished writing up the post, actually. You can read all about 'em on Thursday :)
  • Emily October 21, 2014, 7:52 am
    This looks delicious! I never make Mexican pizza but I really should. It's 9AM and I'd eat this right now ha! Emily recently posted...10 Weeks Later with Baby SageMy Profile

      Haha, funny thing is that I totally eat refried beans on toast for breakfast sometimes. So I'd eat it for breakfast too! ;)
  • Kim October 21, 2014, 1:08 pm

      It is a great replacement for "cheese" on pizza or a sandwich. I love using the spicier versions!

    • ClnEatingVegGrl October 28, 2014, 6:52 pm
      Thanks Kelley! I hope you enjoy it :) I promise you won't miss the cheese. Hummus is an awesome substitute!
