The trendiest plants based meal kit recipes

Plant-based dishes have become increasingly popular in Canada due to ethical and environmental concerns, with more people choosing to include meatless meals as part of their weekly diet. The meal kit industry has responded to this shift by offering a wide selection of vegan and vegetarian recipes.

Popular meal kits may now include Thai cauliflower curry with jasmine rice, celery root slaw with pomegranate seeds, smoky sweet potato tostadas with avocado cream and chickpea tacos with minty cabbage slaw - all made with plant-based ingredients such as peppers, mushrooms, onions, garlic, chickpeas and beans instead of traditional meats. There are also delicious salads or grains that come as sides.

There are some outstanding brands of meal kit delivery services that everyone needs to try at least once. Some of the most well-known include HelloFresh, Chefs Plate, CookIt, or Wecookmeals kits Canada. In the case of WeCook, the company offers meal plans that can meet a variety of needs, with a diverse menu of vegetarian options, recipes, and clear instructions on how to prepare each meal.

These delicious vegan and vegetarian meal kits mean Canadians can quickly prepare guilt-free dinners that help reduce their carbon footprint. There is an array of options on offer that make it easy for everyone to enjoy plant-based meals.

Zucchini Noodle Pesto Bowl with Grilled Tofu and Cherry Tomatoes
This delicious bowl combines a variety of filling and healthy ingredients. Tofu cubes should first be seasoned with salt, pepper, olive oil, and grilled until golden brown. Before adding to the bowl, put it aside to cool. By using a spiralizer or chopping zucchini into thin spirals, you can make zucchini noodles. To make the pesto sauce, pulse fresh basil leaves, garlic, parmesan cheese, and pine nuts in a food processor until finely minced.

When everything is ready, put the bowl together by combining grilled tofu with boiling zucchini noodles. Add some pesto sauce, halved cherry tomatoes for flavour, and roasted cashews for crunch to the top. Add some freshly chopped herbs on top for decoration and flavour. Even the pickiest eaters will enjoy this zucchini noodle pesto bowl with grilled tofu and cherry tomatoes!

Mushroom and Lentil Shepherd's Pie
A filling and healthy dish that may be found in many culinary traditions is shepherd's pie with mushrooms and lentils. This protein-rich dish offers critical minerals like iron and B vitamins for optimum health and is made up of mushrooms, onions, carrots, celery, lentils infused with garlic, tomato sauce, and spices.

This delectable main meal may be quickly made at home by cooking onions, celery, carrots, and garlic in oil or butter before adding mushrooms for a richer flavour. After cooking the ingredients as directed on the packet, add some tomato paste and fresh herbs like thyme or rosemary before adding in the pre-cooked lentils. Spread mashed potatoes on top and bake for 25 minutes, or until golden brown, to complete the dinner. Serve this tasty dish hot with steamed veggies like broccoli or Brussels sprouts to add additional nutrition. This would be a delicious meal that contains vital minerals important to support general health.
Chickpea and Sweet Potato Curry
Another good plant based recipe is a dish with sweet potatoes. In a big skillet over medium-high heat sauté an onion in oil until it becomes tender, then add garlic, ginger, and chilli pepper. Add cubed sweet potato and previously cooked chickpeas and mix it.  Add salt, turmeric, and curry powder on top of the mixture before turning down the heat. The vegetables should be soft but still keep their shape after 15 minutes of simmering. Enjoy this vegan main dish alone or with cooked rice or quinoa on the side for extra nutrition. To complete your supper spread, serve it with a simple salad or your choice of roasted vegetables.
