Day one of Veganuary is full of grand aspirations about the many interesting plant-based meals you are going to make over the course of the month ahead. By day four, however, when you’re chowing down on yet another plate of chips, you might concede that some help is needed when it comes to mapping out your vegan meals.
Enter the vegan recipe box. All the ingredients you need to make a healthy, easy and delicious plant-based meal shipped to your door, with clear instructions on how to use them. Here are our favourite vegan food delivery boxes to try this Veganuary.
With Gousto’s recipe boxes you pick from a large selection of meals each week and there are always several excellent vegan options. The recipes are always easy to make and meticulously planned so you’re not rushing to get them done in the predicted prep time. Gousto’s boxes are also slightly cheaper than rivals like Mindful Chef, with the cheapest option for two people being £34.99 for four meals.

This is probably the easiest and tastiest way to do Veganuary. Allplants makes the meals for you and deliver them in perfect portions to pop straight in the oven or microwave. As the name suggests, all of Allplants’s meals are vegan, and they are also all ridiculously tasty, with the creamy cashew mac (a vegan take on mac and cheese) being our favourite.

Mindful Chef caters to everyone: all its food is gluten- and dairy-free, and pescetarian and plant-based options available – you just have to be OK with its low-carb approach to meal times. Each week the menu includes several vegan options you can select to build your box, and while we’ve found Mindful Chef recipes to be slightly trickier than most in the past, they’re all, without exception, easy on the tastebuds.
