A Vegan's Guide to Takeout Kit

Are you a vegan? Or transitioning to become a vegan? The new year is always the best time to set new goals and try something new. Did you know that veganism is expected to be the biggest food trend this 2018? In fact, there was a 987% increase in demand vegan and vegetarian food last year. If you are opting for healthier, vegan food this year, check out our delicious international vegan kits below!

A vegan diet doesn't have to be blande. We keep staying on track easy, tasty, and interesting with our international kits. We recommend keeping a few kits in your pantry to make your life easier.


Vegan Chana Masala & Spiced Basmati Rice

This dish uses vegan coconut oil and coconut milk in place of cream, and both contain beneficial and healthy fats like lauric acid that could help lower cholesterol and improve blood pressure. Chickpeas (garbanzo beans) provide essential proteins (14g of protein in each serving!).

Moroccan Shakshuka (Does not include eggs!)

Shakshuka has become a popular brunch dish but makes an equally satisfying dinner. Worried about not getting enough protein? This dish includes freekeh, a cereal grain made from green durum wheat that is low in fat and high in protein and fiber. Enjoy with a hot cup of mint tea, play some Moroccan music, and slip away to Casablanca. Add garbanzo beans for extra protein, although the dish contains 12g of protein in each serving and 14g of fiber. The dish is also rich in iron and potassium.

Ethiopian Spiced Lentils & Teff Flatbread (Misr Wat)

Ethiopian misr wat is a richly spiced lentil dish usually served with injera, a nutritious teff flatbread. Authentic injera requires a 48-hour fermentation process similar to sourdough bread-making. For this kit, we created a quick injera mix to satisfy your Ethiopian cravings faster. The teff flour, a gluten-free ancient grain, mixed with lentils provides a great amount of protein. Lentils are not only high in protein, but also other essential nutrients like folate, iron, and potassium. Each serving in this dish contains 17g of plant-based protein and contributes 35% of your daily value of iron and calcium!

Vietnamese Pho Noodle Soup (Omit Fish Sauce for Vegan)

Vietnamese cooking aims to balance five taste elements: spicy, sour, bitter, salty, and sweet. According to tradition, each taste corresponds with a health of a different organ in the body.

Our pho is includes tofu and is made with a vegetable stock infused with toasted spices. The meal kit includes fish sauce, but you can omit for a vegan version of the dish. Add your own fresh herbs and mung bean sprouts to bring this dish to the next level. 16g of protein in each serving.

Sichuan Mapo Tofu

Mapo Tofu is an elegant tofu dish from the Sichuan province in China. There are three taste dimensions which makes it the ultimate “experience” dish

When you first taste mapo tofu, you are welcomed with a spicy chili kick which is then softened by a numbing sensation from the Sichuan peppercorn. Finally, you feel the soft and creamy texture of the silken tofu and the aromatics of the steamed jasmine rice. It’s an authentic dish not to be missed! 20g of protein in each serving!
