The 10 Best Vegan Meal Kit Delivery Subscriptions – 2022 Readers’ Choice Awards

Marisa Haber
ByMarisa HaberJul 25, 2022 | 7 comments

Vegan meal delivery kits can make sticking to a plant-based diet much easier (and quite a bit more delicious). A vegan diet–one that doesn’t include meat or animal products like cheese, milk and yogurt–can be tough if you’re just starting out. And if you’re tired of simple salads and sliced fruit, switching to a meal kit makes sense — the subscriptions allow you to enjoy gourmet-inspired recipes that result in well-thought out meals that don’t require a ton of time in the kitchen. Ready-to-eat meal services add even more convenience.

With that in mind, we’ve collected several of the best vegan meal kits available online. A quick note to keep in mind while shopping: While many meal prep services have vegan options, we’re interested in the subscriptions that focus on animal-free products — strict vegan diets can be time-consuming, and well-curated meal deliveries can make life much more convenient when you’re eating ethically.

Every year, we ask our readers to share their top recommended subscriptions of all types. Then we ask our experts to share what they know about each subscription to make it easy for you to know which subscription is right for you. Below, you’ll find our insights for shopping Vegan meal kit subscription boxes and see readers’ top choices for plant-based, nourishing food subscriptions.

What To Look For When Shopping for Vegan Meal Subscriptions

Here are a few excellent reasons to try a plant-based meal kit and features to look for when shopping around:

      • How much can I customize my meals? If you have allergies, being able to customize your meals is vital. Food subscription services often have gluten-free, nut-free, and all-organic options (wherever possible, we’ve provided that information in our list). Make sure that you have the flexibility to choose the kinds of meals you most want to eat, and those that will be the most healthy for you. In our list, we’ve noted where customization is possible.
      • Are the meals frozen? Many vegan subscription services send their meals fresh, but some send their meals frozen and you’ll have to defrost them before heating them. It’s a matter of preference, but if you prefer having fresh meals over frozen, take note of the way a subscription service will send them to you. Where applicable, our list notes which subscriptions send frozen meals or smoothies.
      • What kinds of ingredients do they use? There are several “Impossible Burgers” and other “meat-like” products for vegans these days. However, you might prefer whole food meals. Decide what kinds of ingredients you’d prefer and be sure the subscriptions you’re considering offer them. Where possible, our list points out where “meat-like” products were used.
      • Will this box help you avoid waste? Each year, about 30-40 percent of the U.S. food supply is wasted. By structuring your diet around meal kits or ready-to-eat vegan meals, you can do your part to reduce that figure. You’ll also want to consider packaging waste; different subscriptions offer eco-conscious packaging so you can cut waste even more. Where possible, our list notes boxes that have made special efforts with packaging.
      • Will a box help you discover new foods? Services like Purple Carrot and Green Chef (discussed below) feature ingredients that you might not be able to find at your local retailer — and since you’re ordering from a vegan-friendly menu, you won’t have to search ingredient lists for hidden animal products. Discovering new foods will give you a wider range of foods to eat, which means your plant-based diet will stay exciting. Consider subscriptions that offer foods you’ve never tried. Our list highlights new foods present in different menus.
      • Will this subscription lower your carbon footprint?  By switching to a plant-based diet, you’re already making an ecologically conscious choice, and by skipping the grocery store, you’re making even more of an impact. On average, meal kits result in 33 percent lower carbon emissions than meals made from grocery store purchases. Be aware of how a subscription box may help you drive down your carbon footprint even further. Our list notes those subscriptions that are mindfully addressing their own carbon footprints.

Our Picks for the Best Vegan Meal Delivery Services

Read on for our reader’s recommendations for the best vegan meal kit subscription boxes currently available. If we missed anything, drop us a comment. If you’ve tried one of these services, be sure to leave a quick review (even if you had a poor experience — your review can help other readers avoid subscription remorse).

When you’re committed to the vegan lifestyle, finding healthy meals can be difficult (and finding healthy meals that taste great is — well, hey, that’s why we’re writing this list). Purple Carrot simplifies your search by delivering ready-to-prepare vegan meal kits with easy-to-follow instructions.

If you’ve ever shopped for a meal kit service, you know the drill: Subscribers choose from a variety of hand-crafted Purple Carrot recipes, then receive a box with everything they need to get cooking. Meals are divided into categories (quick & easy, high-protein, gluten-free, or chef’s choice), so you can build a custom delivery for your exact dietary needs. Each kit arrives with the exact amount of 100% plant-based ingredients on a schedule you set, which helps to minimize food waste from your kitchen.

Featured recipes range from hearty mushroom cheddar black bean burgers to mango poke bowls. You can also add tasty vegan snacks to your order, and you can easily manage your subscription online; if you need to skip a week, you can do so without penalty.

Overall, Purple Carrot delivers fantastic vegan meals at a fair price — this service is a fairly straightforward meal delivery subscription, but their focus on interesting, easy-to-prepare vegan recipes sets them apart.

You can throw them in your purse, backpack, or slip them into your car cup holder for easy snacking.

Hungryroot plant-based grocery delivery.

Image from our review.

What This Vegan Meal Subscription Delivers

Think of Hungryroot as an online grocery store that only sells healthy food. Hungryroot was formerly 100% vegan but has since introduced meats and other products to their ever-increasing product lineup. They continue to feature all kinds of plant-based options ranging from chickpea pesto to cauliflower rice. If your local grocer doesn’t have a great vegan selection, Hungryroot will give you options.

You can also find pre-made sweets, snacks, and meals, and Hungryroot provides detailed info about each product so you can easily decide if it works for your lifestyle. Upon signing up, you’ll select your dietary restrictions and receive the pre-prepped meal ingredients in grocery-style packages. Hungryroot provides suggestions to mix and match your items to create flavorful and healthy meals in 15 minutes or less.

This vegan meal delivery service takes a novel approach, and we can understand the appeal: If you love cooking and you feel restricted by paint-by-numbers meal kits, this is an excellent alternative.


  • Shipping materials are recyclable, reusable, or compostable.
  • You can add items a la carte to your kit along with the ingredients needed for your meal choices.
  • Hungryroot also offers a selection of snacks and sweets.

5. Sunbasket

A Vegan Meal Subscription With the Best Seasonal Ingredients

What This Vegan Meal Subscription Delivers

Are you a fan of farm-to-table cooking and “California cuisine”? Check out Sunbasket. Created by the former head chef of a James-Beard-Award-winning restaurant, Sunbasket is a meal kit subscription that emphasizes clean, healthy eating and takes ingredient sourcing seriously. Plans can be customized to accommodate special dietary considerations (you can pick paleo-friendly, vegetarian, vegan, diabetes-friendly, or Mediterranean diet options, among others), and all meal kits include organic produce and responsibly sourced meats & seafood.

When you sign up for a subscription, you can choose whether you’d like to receive meal kits or prepared meals. Both are delicious, but if you’re looking for food that’s delicious and ready to heat and eat, we recommend the Fresh & Ready meals. If you’re interested in culinary exploration — and you don’t mind paying slightly more for adventurous recipes — Sunbasket is an excellent choice.


  • Sunbasket waives the shipping fee and gives you a $40 discount for your first order.
  • Meals only take 30 minutes to prepare.
  • Choose from 18 weekly meal options.


  • On the pricier side.
  • Not good for those with severe allergies as all meals are packaged in a facility that handles gluten as well as all major food allergens (milk, eggs, fish, crustacean shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat, and soybeans).

What Reviewers Say:

"It’s safe to say I am a Sunbasket fan anyways, but the Fresh & Ready meals are a game-changer for my dinner plans right now. I am so sick of cooking, and these are the perfect way to enjoy a meal that feels home-cooked without destroying my kitchen or over-paying for delivery." -Megan, MSA Reviewer

Image from our review.

What This Vegan Meal Subscription Delivers

Splendid Spoon is a vegan meal delivery service that specializes in nutrient-rich smoothies, soups, and bowls. All of their dishes are plant-based, vegan, gluten-free, and made with GMO-free ingredients.

When selecting meals, you’ll have more than 50 options to choose from, and the service has plenty of variety. Recent offerings include:

  • Energy-boosting chocolate cherry smoothie
  • Vegetable Bolognese bowl (a plant-based take on a classic pasta dish)
  • Tex-Mex inspired brown rice taco bowl topped with crunchy pepitas

Splendid Spoon’s soups and smoothies are designed to be enjoyed cold, so there’s no cooking required. While we’d stop short of calling this a complete solution for vegans, it’s an excellent option for busier folks. Starting at as low as $8 per meal depending on the plan you choose, it’s also remarkably affordable, given the quality of the ingredients and food.


  • Splendid Spoon focuses on quality of ingredients over calories.
  • Plenty of variety for smoothies and meals.
  • Great for anyone on the go with little to no time for food prep.


  • Pricier than making meals at home.
  • Smoothies and soups are packaged in plastic bowls.

8. Sakara Life

A Vegan Lifestyle Subscription That's More Than Just Food

What This Vegan Meal Subscription Delivers

Subscribing to Sakara Life is subscribing to a lifestyle. The food is organic and gluten-free and nutrient dense, and it’s presented beautifully. Sakara says most subscribers notice a change in one week–and their menus claim to accomplish the following:

  • Improve Digestion
  • Reduce Bloat
  • Shed Excess Weight
  • Boost Energy
  • Increase Focus
  • Improve Skin Clarity

How’s that for the power of a healthy diet!

When you join, you choose how many meals you want Sakara Life to provide (2,3 or 5 a week), and they’ll be sent to you, ready to eat. But what our readers really rave about are the extras you get from Sakara: a Detox tea that detoxifies the body and helps increase water intake, a probiotic supplement and access to Sakara Wellness Coaches for support.

Some entrees include the Superfood Breakfast Cookie, Sakara Cobb Salad, and Forbidden Rice + Tatsoi Bowl.

If you’re interested in a healthy lifestyle where the food you eat is central to your well-being, fueled by organic, vegan meals - and you have the budget to afford it, because even the lowest option is $100+ a week - then Sakara Life is a great option for you.


  • Promotes a whole-food plant-based diet that is backed by science.
  • Ingredients used are functional with a focus on gut health and providing all the nutrition you need in a meal.
  • Afterpay available for orders $35 and over.


  • On the pricier side.

What Reviewers Say:

Sakara Life has truly re-envisioned subscription meal delivery. The recipes are thoughtfully designed, and the food is really impressive. All of the meals I received were exciting and delicious; never once during my program did I pout about eating “healthy food” or want to skip a meal in favor of something more enticing. I’m a total sucker for a pretty plate of food, and my Sakara meals were all drop-dead gorgeous. (Scroll down to see what I mean. That donut? I mean come on.) When it comes to nutrition, taste, and visual appeal, Sakara really does deliver. All that said, it might be the most expensive meal subscription I’ve ever sampled. -Lindsey, MSA Reviewer

9. Mosaic Foods

Chef-Prepared Vegan Meals at a Fair Price

Mosaic frozen plant-based meals.

Image from our review.

What This Vegan Meal Subscription Delivers

Mosaic offers both vegan and vegetarian recipes, so you’ll need to spend a bit more time curating your order; if that’s a deal-breaker, this probably isn’t the service for you. With that said, their vegan dishes are some of the most delicious ready-to-eat meals we’ve tried.

The meals feature fresh produce and hearty grains. They’re flash-frozen, so you’ll still taste the freshness after you pop the dish into the microwave (with pretty much all of the frozen meals on this list, we’ll note that reheating in a conventional oven will give you the best possible flavors).

Mosaic meals can be stored in the freezer for 3+ months. They take about 5 minutes to prep in the microwave, so this is an excellent option for office workers and anyone else who needs a convenient prep-free option.

All of Mosaic’s meals are free from artificial ingredients and chemical preservatives. With dishes like golden milk and blackberry oats, peanut tofu bowls, and tangy Thai stir fry, Mosaic has plenty of variety. It’s also ideal for weight management: Each box contains 8 delicious meals ranging between 400-600 calories, so while they’re filling, they deliver balanced nutrition.

The downside — which we mentioned briefly above — is that Mosaic isn’t purely vegan. You’ll find a bunch of vegetarian options on their menu, and if you let Mosaic pick your orders, you might receive meals with animal products. To avoid that, you’ll need to check your order prior to every shipment, but the company’s online menu clearly indicates which meals are vegan.


  • Frozen meals give you more leeway with how long you can wait to make them.
  • Packaging can be easily recycled after use.
  • Perfect meal plan for single households.


  • Not explicitly vegan meals.
  • Doesn't ship to all states.

What Our Readers Say:

"The vegetarian meals I tried were some of the best, most filling lunches I’ve had, packed with plant protein and fresh-tasting vegetables I felt good about eating." - Emily, MSA reviewer

Ships to: Parts of the US. Enter your zip code here to check if they serve your area.

10. Veestro

A Vegan Meal Subscription for Total Nutrition

Image via Veestro.

What This Vegan Meal Subscription Delivers

Veestro is a plant-based meal service that allows you to “put healthy eating on autopilot.” You’ll enter your preferences, identify health goals, and receive a regular supply of pre-prepared meals.

All Veestro meals are organic, plant-based, and free from dairy and preservatives. They also offer gluten-free options. However, vegans should choose the a la carte subscription, which features delicious meals made with organic, non-GMO ingredients. There’s also a weight-loss option; select this option, and all three of your meals will total 1,200 calories.

Recent vegan options include portobello mushroom fajitas, tofu red curry, and Chinese eggplant stir fry.

Veestro is one of the more expensive options on this list  (this is another one that blows past $100/week), but the goal here is total diet management, so the high price is justified — if you’re looking for a no-nonsense service that delivers everything you’ll need for a nutritious diet, you’ve found it. Orders are customizable, and you can skip a week or cancel anytime without penalty.


  • Veestro has over 40 different meal options to choose from including breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
  • Offers meals with plant-based “meats” such as vegan chicken.
  • Provide 50% off every 5th subscription order.


  • Flavor of some meals can be on the blander side.
  • New meal options aren't added as frequently.

How to Get The Most Out of Your Vegan Meal Subscription Once You’ve Picked

Once you’ve picked out the right box for you, follow our steps to help make sure you make the most of your new subscription.

  • Check for coupons before buying.  There’s often a deal to be had if you know where to look, and you’ve come to the right place. Here at MSA, we have the best coupons around. Keep an eye on our Deals Page for money-saving special deals, and always make sure to check in with our reviews and brand pages for the best coupons before buying.
  • Personalize your subscription. Many prepared meal delivery services allow you to update your profile with your dietary preferences and likes/dislikes. Want vegetarian meals? Or don’t eat pork? Make sure to update your subscription so you’re matched with the best meals for you.
  • Schedule your preferred delivery day. Most prepared meal delivery services allow you to choose your preferred delivery day. Check your account portal to see which delivery days are available.
  • Find out how to skip a week, when necessary. Keep in mind that you don’t have to receive a box every single week. If you need a break or feel like dining out, you can always skip a week by logging in to your account. Make sure you know when the deadline is to skip, just in case you ever need to place your subscription on pause.
  • Keep an eye on upcoming recipes. Make sure you don’t miss your favorite meals! We recommend checking upcoming menus every week so you can pick out which meals look best.
  • Make sure you always have space in the fridge. Once your shipment arrives, you’ll need a good amount of space in the fridge (or freezer) for storage. Try to keep a shelf clear if you want plenty of space to organize. It’s also important to find out what the brand says about freezing, refrigeration times and other freshness information.
  • Remember there are plenty of fish in the sea. Falling out of love with your favorite prepared meal delivery service? Maybe it’s time for a break. There are loads of different options to choose from, and if you decide to mix things up and give another service a try, make sure to circle back to the top of this checklist and sign up with a new subscriber coupon to make sure you get the best deal.

Factors We Considered When Reviewing These Vegan Subscriptions

Maintaining a strict vegan diet isn’t easy, and we hope that these services help you meet your dietary goals. We considered dozens of factors when evaluating options, relying on help from our readers to get accurate information about each subscription.

Some of the factors we considered when ranking this list:

  • Convenience - The primary purpose of a food subscription is to make meal planning easier. That means different things to different people — some folks don’t mind spending half an hour preparing a meal, but others are looking for ready-to-eat options. We included a variety of subscriptions, so regardless of your lifestyle, you should be able to find something that works for you.
  • Price and Overall Value - Meal deliveries can be expensive, but they can also save you time and money. Many of the prep-at-home services featured above offer a lower overall price than what you’d pay at the grocery store for the same ingredients. For the ready-to-eat kits, we chose options that were reasonably priced, but we threw in a few gourmet options for readers who are willing to spend extra.
  • Variety - Ideally, you’ll be able to use your vegan meal subscription for years to come. Of course, if you’re eating the same 6 or 7 foods for every single meal, you’ll start looking for alternatives, so we chose services that have enough variety to keep you coming back. We prioritized menus that used a range of different ingredients, and we tried to choose example meals that were representative of each brand’s approach.

Finally, we looked for services with versatile membership options and strong customer service reputations. By reading reviews from real-life users — and considering the opinions of our in-house reviewers — we hope we’ve helped you find a subscription that works.

That's it for our vegan meal subscriptions list! If you’ve tried any of these services, be sure to let us know. Remember, your feedback helps our users decide whether or not to try a certain sub (and what to expect when they open the box).

I’m surprised Splendid Spoon made the cut. I know taste varies from person to person, but I can’t imagine anyone liking their meals and smoothies. A few were good, but the majority were disgusting. I threw out most of my first and second boxes and promptly cancelled after the first one. Daily Harvest I can get behind, especially their smoothies and flatbreads!

Hungryroot is TERRIBLE. Charged me $99 for a box that I didn’t order (had orders on pause and they never let me know it was unpausing). Tried to contact them several times and NEVER heard back, nothing. Super unhappy with them.

I also had an issue with Hungry Root. They sent me a box of spoiled food (at the time I think they were still working out the kinks on their packing materials) and I had to threaten a charge back before they would refund me. Their customer service was hard to get ahold of and pretty terrible in general.

Our home is vegan, and I tried lots of them – Purple Carrot, Green Chef, Hungryroot, Daily Harvest, Hello Fresh, Thistle (prepared meals), Methodology (prepared meals) and Sun Basket. (And more, especially prepared meals.)
You need to actually order and make multiple recipes / eat to find out which company is the best.
While lots of companies’ recipes are so boring and blunt, “Sun Basket” menus are unique and have lots of different varieties. Very flavorful and enjoyable.
Also, descent cooking time, 20-45 minutes for each recipes. I think their sauces and spices are the biggest key! You don’t need to go through lots of measurements but they include very yummy sauces, dressings, spices etc to complete the yummy flavors. And unlikely you would mess up the meal, very clear and simple instructions on a card.
And their ingredients are fresh and consistently good quality, and they provide organic ingredients as much as possible. Green Chef and Hello Fresh weren’t really good, some of the ingredients looked old. Sun Basket usually only has 2-3 completely vegan recipes per week, but few more vegetarian options available so you can modify (by not using cheese etc). And also some menu has options to choose your proteins, so you can choose vegan proteins, instead of fish or meat.
And their snacks, soup, juice options are also good.
I’ve been adding them so I don’t need to go grocery at all during this Coronavirus situation. Our meals are totally relying on their delivery at this moment!
If I talk about prepared meals, Thistle is the best.
Their foods are really, really yummy, it tastes very clean but actually very yummy. I’ve been very impressed. And definitely I could feel my energy level was improving. I love cooking so I only order Thistle 1 week in a month, but when I’m busy I use Thistle more to survive my busy schedule. And actually I’m a long time customer (2-3 years?) but I haven’t tired with their menus at all!

Anyways, from my experience, the best vegan meal kit delivery 2018-2020 is “Sun Basket”!!
And prepared vegan meal delivery is “Thistle”!!

By “Best Vegan Meal Kits” do you mean just a list of ALL the vegan meal kits you could find? I don’t see any information here about what makes them the best or sets them apart.
