Order These Tasty 100% Vegan Ready Meals

Contents

We remember the first ready meals we ever had.

The enthusiasm we shared as we both picked out the cheesy lasagna. Our excitement as we competed over who could prick holes in the plastic film the fastest. Anticipation as we waited for the microwave to finish whirring.

And then came the grand opening…

Gloop.

That’s it. Just tasteless gloop with a few sheets of soggy lasagna. We were so disappointed!

That was before we went plant-based and, we’re going to be honest, we didn’t have much hope for vegan ready meals either.

And we heard along the grapevine that vegan ready meal companies were smashing it in the UK! By smashing it we mean that they had cracked how to cook delicious and healthy prepared dishes that could be cooked in just over 10 minutes! Talk about convenience!

So we made it our mission to try all of the best vegan ready meal brands we could find here in the UK to provide you all with our full and honest reviews.

Ready meals often get a bad reputation as highly-processed and unhealthy. However, the majority of plant-based meal deliveries on the UK market are nutritious and delicious!

Highly-processed ready meals tend to be on the unhealthier end of the spectrum so if health is what you’re after, we recommend choosing something with more whole food plant-based ingredients. Not all vegan microwave meals are unhealthy!

We’ve rounded up some of the tastiest, yet healthy, meal delivery options below. So you can eat happy!

Whether you’re the world’s best chef or you can’t even scramble tofu without burning it to a crisp, most of us have one thing in common when it comes to cooking our own meals: not having enough time to do it properly.

Not only will pre-made meals save you from a life of baked beans on toast, but it will also provide you with a more balanced lifestyle.

One where you can give yourself time to do yoga or to finish that book you’re trying to read.

Most of the vegan meal delivery companies in the UK are quite competitively priced, meaning you can get meals from just £4 a serving delivered to your door.

This can cost you more than if you were to source the ingredients and cook everything yourself, but the real savings to be made here are with your time.

Plus, most of the companies offer deals on subscriptions with free delivery.

Also, they are all MUCH cheaper than a takeaway. Oh, and healthier of course.

Okay you love the ease of frozen microwavable ready meals, but you also love to cook. Which is why we recommend checking out a recipe box or meal kit delivery – they are easier than sourcing recipes and ingredients yourself and are 100% worth it

These kits are perfect for anyone who is looking for an easy way to cook a meal for themselves, without having to go to the supermarket and figure out what they actually want to cook..
