Why you should choose our balanced plant-based dinner recipes:

  • All of our plant-based balanced recipes are developed by in-house chefs & approved by a nutritionist.
  • Under 600 calories, they are low in salt, sugar & fat, making them the perfect thing to kick off good eating habits this year.
  • All of our plant-based recipes include pulses, whole grains and lots of fresh vegetables that will keep you feeling full
  • Wholesome, flavour-filled meals that will satisfy the whole household.

Week 1: Dairy-Free Risotto with Butternut Squash, Sage, Caramelised Onions and Hazelnuts

Hearty, wholesome, and naturally creamy, our dairy-free plant-based butternut squash risotto is the perfect recipe for a cosy night in. Sage and butternut squash is a delicious flavour combination, especially when roasted together in the oven before being mashed into a rough purée. Mashing the squash thickens the risotto, as well as giving it a deliciously creamy texture. Serve in deep bowls and top with the lemony dressed rocket and chopped hazelnuts.

Week 2: Mexican Goodness Bowl with Roasted Squash, Black Beans and Tomato Salad

Quinoa is a pseudo-cereal ( a seed which is prepared and consumed like a grain) and is one of a few plant food which can be considered to be a complete protein as it contains all 9 essential amino acids. Forming the base of our delicious Mexican-inspired goodness bowl, quinoa is topped with fresh zingy ingredients like roasted spiced butternut squash, black bean purée, tomato salad and peppery rocket. Hearty and wholesome, this healthy recipe is the perfect thing for an easy mid-week dinner.

Week 3: Cauliflower Nuggets

Packed with Vitamin C and containing nearly zero grams of fat, sodium or sugar, cauliflower is the hero ingredient in this delicious vegan recipe. Cauliflower ‘nuggets’ are coated with mustard, jerk seasoning and panko breadcrumbs and baked in the oven until golden and crispy. Served with a smokey black bean and spinach stew and finished off with a sprinkling of fresh coriander, it’s a great dish to enjoy for a wholesome mid-week dinner.

Week 4: Vegetable Packed Soup

Packed with fresh, hearty ingredients like carrots, peppers, cavolo nero and cannellini beans, our delicious plant-based soup is the perfect recipe for chilly winter evenings. For added texture, we’ve topped the soup with charred roasted cauliflower and a nutty salsa verde which can be made from scratch in minutes. Quick to prep and packing in three of your five-a-day, it’s a go-to if you’re in need of a healthy pick me up.

Any chance that Hello Fresh might start doing a completely vegan recipe box soon? With there now being 3 and a half million vegans in the UK, isn’t it about time you did?

Have been customers for a good few years now. Had our box delivered this week. Vegetarian as always ordered…. I don’t eat meat or fish imagine my shock to find the bath pig sirloin steak in it. Not happy.
