Show some love to your piggy bank with Budget Friendly, a plant based meal plan designed with your wallet in mind. This plan packs a ton of flavor and variety into meals using the least expensive ingredients—beans, potatoes, rice, greens, peppers, cabbage, etc.
What’s on the gourmet menu this week
Inflation blues? Not with the South of the Border Bean Bowl. Taco-spiced veggies, pinto beans, citrus-cilantro rice, and a nut-free nacho-style sauce make this a sensational meal that’ll delight you.
Taco night gets a fresh spin with Chickpea Masala Tacos with Lemon Cilantro Slaw. These Indian-inspired chickpeas are topped with avocado and crisp, bright slaw that balances the warm spices perfectly. Yes, please!
European flavors on a budget? It’s possible! Our Sweet & Sour Cabbage and Buttery Mashed Potatoes with Kielbasa-spiced Pintos features traditional Polish-style sweet and sour cabbage served beside creamy mashed potatoes and pintos infused with crave-worthy kielbasa flavors.
Fire-roasted tomatoes provide a rich, smoky base to compliment mushrooms, pinto beans, and diced green chiles in our Fire-roasted Mushroom & Pinto Chili. Served with a crisp salad, homemade tortilla chips, and nacho sauce for dipping, this is truly a family-pleasing meal. Bonus: the nacho sauce is nut-free, making it budget and allergy-friendly.
Finish your week strong with Penny Pincher Peanut Stir Fry. It’s delicious and loaded with veggies. Plus, if you make the rice on batching day, this beauty can be on the table in about 30 minutes. Hello, Friday night plans!
Big flavor. Little cost.

Save money by going plant based
It’s a common misconception that eating plant based is expensive. If you shop and cook the way we teach you in Plant Fueled Life, it’s one of the most affordable ways to eat on the planet! In fact, a 2021 study by Oxford University found adopting a vegan or flexitarian diet can reduce your grocery bill by one-third!
Our co-founder, Molly, shows how she saves money with plant based batching. Also, Team Dirty member Brittany shares how she is able to feed her family of five for less than $2 per meal in her blog post, Plant Based Family on a Budget. Our team offers more Plant Based Money Saving Tips.
