Vegetarian Middle Eastern meze feast, Arabica

The ultimate colourful feast of flavours for a special night in. Heating up components in the oven and adding a drizzle of olive oil is the most taxing part of this super simple kit. Stuff pillowy-soft flatbreads with silky hummus, hot zhug garnish, crunchy pickles, zingy tabbouleh and chunky spinach kibbeh. Everything you need is provided, including a pot of olive oil and crunchy dukkah topping. The portions are decidedly generous – we polished ours of for lunch the next day. The star dishes were definitely the charred butternut squash with nutty tahini dressing and vegetable magloubeh, a fragrant rice dish with roasted cauliflower and aubergine. This mouthwatering collection of dishes is perfect for a special occasion when you really want to push the boat out.

DIY vegan ramen kit, Shoryu

Want to warm up from the inside out? Serve up a hearty bowl of ramen noodle soup in 10-15 minutes with this comforting vegan kit. Be prepared for generous bowlfuls, brimming with umami flavours, plenty of texture and shoryu’s all-important original hosomen noodles. The kits themselves are simple enough that even budding cooks won’t be intimidated. With minimal prep, some light veg slicing and gently simmering miso stock, minimal input is required to create a wholesome meal. We loved the combination of crunchy bamboo shoots, perfectly cooked noodles and filling fried tofu. Toppings are included, but Shoryu recommends adding and customising with your favourite flavours, e.g. nori sheets or pickled ginger.

Tofu pad Thai, Rosa’s Café

This substantial meal kit stuffed with satisfying pad Thai noodles is the perfect family Friday night fakeaway. The heaping bowls of fried tofu, crunchy beansprouts, al dente rice noodles and fresh veg makes for a filling supper. A tub of Rosa’s all-important pad Thai sauce is included, a lip-smacking mix of sweet and sour tamarind flavours. Customers will need an egg to complete the dish, but other than some veg chopping and noodle stirring, the cooking is largely taken care of already. No need to worry about stingy portion sizes, we piled our bowls high. There’s also a handy cook-along video for some extra guidance while you’re prepping your Thai masterpiece.

Plant burger DIY kit, Honest Burgers

This easy to assemble vegan burger box has all the trimmings and fixings to satisfy veggies and carnivores alike. The chunky plant-based patties are designed to mimic their meaty counterparts, right down to the juicy texture and satisfying flavour. Just add your own lettuce (it doesn’t travel well) to make a superb stack of sweet and spicy mustard, crunchy pickles, melty ‘gouda’ cheese and smoky chipotle ‘mayo’. Toss your own homemade fries in their signature rosemary salt for the final finishing touch to your boxed burger kit. The patties themselves are cooked in a flash, so prep your veg in advance, everything can be plated up in around 10 minutes. We especially appreciated the addition of the extra sauces that make a boss burger.
