14 of the best vegan meal kits we think you'll love

A few years ago, it was pretty unusual to order a meal kit. The vast majority of people would either cook from scratch or eat out. But now, partly due to the pandemic, meal kits have exploded into a multi-million pound industry. On the one hand, there are subscription recipe box services such as HelloFresh, Gousto and Mindful Chef, which offer day-to-day meals to prepare at home. But on the other, many restaurants have launched their own take, usually aimed more at special occasions, such as meal kits for Valentine’s day.

This doesn’t come as a huge shock, given there are already Michelin-starred restaurants offering home delivery. However many home diners don’t want takeaway, preferring to be part of the process, and that’s where meal kits come in. If you haven’t already, make sure you check out our super comprehensive guide to the best meal kits.

This guide covers another food trend that’s only on the rise - veganism. You only need to read one of our vegan guides, like the best vegan restaurants in London or the best vegan afternoon tea to see how popular it’s become. Thousands of foodies have tried a plant-based diet this year, so if you're one of them - or just curious - make sure you read our ultimate guide to Veganuary. It covers everything you need to know.  

So, given the popularity of these two trends, it seems only natural to do a deep dive into vegan meal kits.
