Purple Carrot Overview
Going vegetarian is great for the environment, too. The more people who stop eating meat and animal produce, the fewer carbon emissions will be released into the atmosphere.
Purple Carrot claims their meal kits have smaller carbon footprints than meals bought from a shop. So, whether you’re vegetarian, or you’re just trying to eat more plant-based foods, Purple Carrot is a superb vegetarian meal delivery service.
These meals aren’t pre-prepared, though. Rather you receive meal kits.
Meal kit recipes are all completely vegan, and they include starches, proteins, and vegetables.
The company predominantly provides a mail order meal kit service, but they have also launched a frozen ready meal range you can find in supermarkets throughout the US and Japan.
When you receive your meal kit box by mail, you also get a recipe booklet bundled. This includes eight weekly vegetarian Purple Carrot recipes. The recipe booklet also includes bonus recipes you can try with shop-bought produce.
Purple Carrot also offers a gift option. You can enter the amount you would like to gift someone so they can redeem it themselves and place an order.
The meal kits arrive in eco-conscious cardboard packaging that can be broken down and recycled. The company does, however, use plastic wrapping for cold foods to keep them fresh during transit.
Plans are fully customizable. There are no set meal plans at all.
You can order breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks which arrive as either 2 or 4 servings so you can potentially cater for all the family.
All recipes featured on the site include their nutritional value, calorie content, and cooking time. The stunning photos of the meals make them look absolutely mouth-watering. The recipes are so delicious they will show the most committed carnivore that vegetarian food is about much, much more than a limp salad.
Some of the ingredients in the recipes are hard to source unless you live in a city with a diverse range of stockists. For example, sumac can be hard to find outside major cities.

Foods Included In The Plan
Each recipe has a grade according to the type of food you want such as gluten-free, soy-free, or high-protein.
Recipes are delicious and globally-inspired, and include ingredients you can find at your local grocery store along a few ingredients that are tougher to source.
Choose from recipes such as Palestinian stuffed peppers, kimchi quesadillas, or Caribbean sweet potatoes.
The breakfast menu has some exciting options like white bean melts and caramelized pear oats.
If you’ve always considered vegetarian food to be boring, Purple Carrot meals might make you rethink that.
Recipes are original and exciting and you get complete flexibility, too. If you need to cancel for one or two weeks, you can suspend your order then resume when you’re ready to roll.
You can opt for a 2-serving plan at $11.99 per meal plus free shipping. You can choose to receive 3 or 4 meals a week.
The 4-serving plan comes as either 2 or 3 dinners per week at $9.99 per meal with free shipping.
