Everyone knows about Hello Fresh and Marley Spoon. A weekly box with recipes and the exact amount of ingredients you need. The vegan box has the same principle but they only make plant-based recipes.
This box is ideal for busy people who want to eat healthier and more plant-based, but do not have the time to find it all out for themselves. With the box in the house, you can immediately go into the kitchen and follow the recipes. Most of the recipes take between 30 and 40 minutes.
Last week I received my first box and I was positively surprised. The box arrived on a Tuesday night. That same day I received a message from PostNL with the time of delivery within a time window of one hour. In case you are not home, you can ask the postman to leave the box at one of your neighbors or even under the chair of the front garden.
Quickly I unpacked the bags and everything looked neat and fresh. The box contained three vegan recipes with the exact amount of ingredients for two people. Most of them were organic. And what I liked a lot, is that most ingredients are wrapped in paper. My box only had a few ingredients wrapped in plastic.
From the recipes, I started with the gyros from the brand Vleesch Noch Visch. Normally, I don’t eat much meat replacements. But this gyros I will definitely like to eat again. The tzatziki made the dish very tasty. This recipe was the easiest of the box to make. The next recipe was a yellow curry with crispy cauliflower. Curries are one of my favorite dishes. With this recipe, I learned how to make it different from how I normally cook it. The crispy cauliflower was a nice touch. I will use it for wraps or tacos as well.
The last recipe of the box was the one I was, in the first place, the less enthusiastic about. But this one surprised me the most: Pearl couscous with roasted pumpkin and cranberries. This was absolutely my personal favorite of the box. I never tasted a dish like this before.
The vegan box is a great initiative to help people that want to start with a vegan lifestyle but don’t know how. The meals are well balanced with grains, protein, and vegetables. I hope you get inspired and give a try to the vegan box. For more information check https://veganbox.nl
