Cooking for my vegan daughter is always a challenge, so I was happy to see that Sun Basket offered several vegan meal kits. Unfortunately, I have a picky vegan who doesn’t like felafel or chili – the two other vegan meals available this week. She thus was left with salt-and-pepper tofu stir-fry with glass noodles as her only choice. She makes a lot of stir fries for herself using tofu, so she wasn’t super excited about this recipe, but food is food and food that mommy makes is better than food that you have to make yourself.
All in all, she was “OK” with this meal kit. She liked the noodles and the stir fry sauce, though she wished there had been a greater variety of vegetables. To be fair, I omitted the red pepper that came with the kit because she doesn’t like red peppers. She wasn’t too happy with the tofu itself – mostly because she’s sick of eating tofu. Tofu, she says, always tastes like tofu, no matter what you do to it. She’d like it if some of these kits came with other fake meats.
All the ingredients for this kit arrived fresh and were still usable a couple of days later when I actually made the meal – but I don’t think they’d have lasted much longer.
They were good quality ingredients, and the meal was rightly portioned. She was full after eating half of the meal-for-two and is happy to have leftovers for today.
I paid a discounted price of $11 for this meal, and it might be worth that – but I don’t think it was worth the $24 regular price for the kit. Of course, time is money so your millage may vary.
