For a detailed explanation of what is involved in creating the vegetarian menu we have a post explaining it all. If you are new and not sure how to get started we have a wonderful series starting with 5 easy steps to get you on your way to once a month cooking. Good luck!

If you like this menu you might want to check out all our past vegetarian menus or in-season menus – December 2011’s  or 2012’s menus (free) if you are looking for something different!

The links below are just so you can see which recipes are included in this month's menu. WE DO THE WORK FOR YOU! To see freezer instructions and adapt recipes to your family size see the DOCUMENTS below.




**Indicates meals that require NO COOKING on your OAMC BIG DAY aka “throw and go” meals, perfect for the family who needs to adjust to just do the quick meals!

Document Update

As you can see we have a NEW way of getting and printing your monthly menu documents. As part of that change, we have also changed the type/size of labels we use. The above labels will print four to a page and line up with Avery 8168/5168 labels or equivalent.


Are you a person that likes to see the menus visually? Perhaps you should check out the December 2013 Vegetarian Menu via Pinterest to see the yummy goodness you will be cooking up on this menu. Not sure what Pinterest is all about, check out what Once A Month Mom has to say about it.

Test Cooks

Each month we have some wonderful volunteers who “test” out the menu prior to publication. They do an amazing job of helping to eliminate confusion and mistakes. They may not catch everything but they sure do catch A LOT! If you are interested in test cook, feel free to volunteer. Here is a little bit about this month’s test cooks:

  • Melissa Wax- I live in Seattle, WA. I am a stay at home Mom with a 4 and 5 year old who attend a preschool co-op that I currently reside over as board chair. I enjoy cooking, photography, knitting, and exploring the city with my kids. I also am a fine art portrait photographer specializing in family, fine art, business, and events. You can view my work at www.melissawax.com.

Are you new to Once A Month Mom or once a month cooking (oamc) in general? If so, you might want to spend a few minutes (or hours) on the Get Started Series. If you are in a real hurry to catch on we have written some simple steps for getting started. Welcome!

    Hi, thanks for th is month’s update! Maybe it’s just me but I don’t see a hyperlink for the Egg Bake.

      Hi Katherine, there isn’t a hyperlink for the Egg Bake. It seems between the time we picked recipes and the menu going live, the site is now down. We have full ingredients and directions inside the documents for you though. :)

    I registered as a pro user but when I click on the “create my own menu based on this one” link it does not auto populate the menu. So then I choose the Vegetarian option again and it takes me back to the choose your menu link. I’m not sure how to begin customizing with this circular process. thanks for any help.

      Hi Rima! Sorry for the trouble! We’ve had some problems with Safari lately- not sure if that’s the browser you are using. We are working to get it fixed asap but in the meantime, Chrome or Firefox should work. If that isn’t the problem, can you email us at info at onceamonthmeals.com so we can troubleshoot more with you? Thanks!

    HI, I’m on Chrome for Mac. When I click the Upgrade Your Account link so I can add a Pro Membership and swap recipes, it takes me to a page to UpDATE my email address. I need to cook next week and I was hoping not to have to manually adjust my shopping lists; since we are dairy free and gluten free I will need to mix and match.

    • Katie says:

      Hi Julia! I think we were emailing back and forth so I’m not sure if this comment is before or after that. If you are still having problems, can you email me again at info at onceamonthmeals.com? Thanks!

    Shouldn’t the farro be on the prep list to cook the night before? I noticed it says “cooked farro” on the recipe for Cauliflower Soup.
    Maybe I missed it somewhere else?
