Drool-Worthy Vegan Meal Kits for UK Delivery

Contents

We all know that cooking healthy and nutritious meals is not always the easiest thing to do, especially after a long hard day at work. Moreover, inspiration doesn’t always come easy.

If only there were companies who would do all the hard work for you.

Oh wait, there are…

We are going to share with you our favourite plant-based meal kits. They are a step up from a vegan ready meal, but much easier than sourcing ingredients and recipes yourself.

All of the brands here are perfect for vegans looking to quickly cook up something new and exciting on a weeknight or for foodies who simply want to add to their cooking repertoire.

If you are looking for fully vegan dishes then we’d recommend Grubby’s plant-based recipe kits. They have a wide variety of nutritious and seasonal dishes sent out each week, plus they are the most eco-friendly offering.

For those of you looking for meal kits that suit the whole family, then you may find Hello Fresh the option for you. They have a good range of plant-based offering, alongside non-vegan options.

Do you love cooking? Are you a big foodie?

And are you also extremely busy? Or stuck for new recipe ideas?

Then a meal kit will be perfect for you. You will get new recipes and the ingredients delivered to you either on a one-off or subscription basis. Saving you from shopping for the food, choosing recipes, and prepping the ingredients.

Here are the best meal kits

Grubby

GRUBBY is all about minimising food waste by delivering just the right amount of food for what you need all whilst cutting down on plastic.

They also donate a meal to a child in poverty for every box delivered. And wherever possible they’ll deliver your recipe box by bike. Yepp, you read that correctly. Kudos GRUBBY.

Plus, the recipes are incredible, packed full of nutritious ingredients and tasty flavours! Expect anything from peanut stir fry to squash quesadillas. Grubby will bring the fun back into your cooking.

Gousto

If you can put up with the very meaty homepage of Gousto, then we recommend trying out the plant-based offerings from Gousto.

We like their platform because you can pick from loads of different meals rather than being confined to a type of ‘box’. Meaning they provide true flexibility for households with varying dietary requirements.

We love Riverford because of their organic offering. Our family orders their veg box for home delivery every week and the quality is amazing. Plus you can choose to eat only seasonal produce.

This is also the same with their recipe box offering, where you can delivered their organic produce alongside a seasonal tasty recipe. They are on the more pricey side of things, but you can rest assured that your food is sustainable.

Everyone’s favourite brunch spot is now delivering to your own kitchen table. And guess what, they have developed their own vegan sausages for the occasion.

And to top it all off, you can order it to come with mimosas. That’s a win-win, we’d say.
