Your guide to enjoying Veganuary in style.
New to Veganuary? Or simply can’t be bothered to cook? Food kits have become the stars of lockdown, allowing us to get a taste of our favourite restaurants from home, and spend far less time cooking while we’re at it. From fresh, Neapolitan pizzas, to stunning haute cuisine – we’ve rounded up the best vegan food kits in Manchester to try this month.
1. Green Haus by Home by Nico
A brilliant option if you’re new to the world of veganism – Six by Nico released their home kits during the first lockdown, becoming wildly popular with fans in just a matter of months. And as a result, fans can now enjoy their new concept, Green Haus, a vegan extension to their already fantastic monthly offering. This month, treat yourself to eight delicious courses – including Korean Gochujang carrots, chipotle five bean estofado, and pumpkin and orange cake. The boxes are super popular, so you’ll want to snap yours up quick.
2. Wood at Home
Masterchef Simon Wood has taken his Manchester offering WOOD online, serving up a five-course tasting menu – with a vegan version also available. The boxes are available for delivery on Fridays and Saturdays only, so you’ll need to get booked in to secure yours.
Ok, so this one’s a little lazier than a food kit – but it’s a great way to take part, nonetheless. Introducing three new Vegan specials to their ‘Bake at Home‘ range this month, Rudy’s has some tasty pizzas on offer – including a very special creation by one of their most talented pizzaiolos, a plant-based take on their classic Calabrese, and an Ortolana. Each pizza is part-baked, and all you have to do is finish it off in the oven. Easy peasy.
4. Koffee Pot
Making our lives that little bit easier since the first lockdown, The Koffee Pot has a selection of meal kits available on their website, including a vegan Full English and a vegan burger kit by DD’s burgers, which is launching next week. The burgers are looking extra thick, so we recommend keeping your eyes peeled on their website for those dropping.
5. Shoryu Ramen
Remaining closed during the January lockdown, Shoryu Ramen has found the perfect way to help us enjoy their food as fresh as possible – with a variety of kits on offer. For vegans, the restaurant has created a White Natural Ramen kit packed with everything you need to become a ‘ramen master’ – with noodles, tofu, veggies and stock included.
6. Honest Burgers
Perfect for Veganuary, Honest Burgers have made their meal kits more widely available – including a plant-based version that can be enjoyed guilt-free. Each kit comes complete with two plant-based burgers, faux Gouda cheese, sauces, more toppings and, of course, the fluffy buns – costing just £18 for two to enjoy.
New to Proove, and in perfect timing for Veganuary, vegans can finally get their hands on their Proove At Home kits, which are partially created so you can experience their gorgeous Neapolitan pizzas fresh at home. Including a part-baked dough, the base and toppings, each kit can be personalised to your liking, and can be picked up from the restaurant or delivered locally via Deliveroo.
