Purple Carrot Plant-Based Meal Delivery Review

We are all about the meal delivery plans. Long ago, Jessica told me all about Blue Apron & Plated. My friend Cassandra raves about Freshly & Jessica is giving Hello Fresh a try very soon! You get it. We like the convenience of someone else picking out recipes & having the ingredients delivered straight to our door.

While I love my Blue Apron & Plated meals, I really wanted to try Purple Carrot.  Years ago, I ate a Vegan diet for about 8 weeks. While I felt great, I ran out of recipes SUPER fast, so it was a challenge to keep the veggies creative, tasty & interesting.

In case you didn’t know, Purple Carrot is a Plant-Based Meal Delivery Plan. Yes, it’s vegan & it’s a great way to fit some more veggies into your diet. We can all use more veggies, right?

How Does the Purple Carrot Plant-Based Meal Delivery Plan Work?

Purple Carrot offers 2 plans. There is the Regular Plant-Based Plan & the Tom Brady TB12 Performance plan which offers gluten-free, high-protein, and limited soy recipes.

Sign-up & your first box is $20 off. The meals arrive in a well-insulated box on your delivery day. You’ll receive recipe cards with easy-to-read with full-color photos & step-by-step instructions. The Purple Carrot ingredients are fresh & proportioned for quick use. Purple Carrot also claims their package is sustainable; thus, their packing is “better for the planet”. After a few deliveries, you get a free box to send a friend, so that’s cool.

What’s So Great About Purple Carrot?

Well, you try a lot of new recipes. Like Blue Apron & Plated, Purple Carrot offers recipes online as well as recipes cards, so if you try a meal & love it, you can easily make it again. My favorite meal so far is the Sweet Pea Corn Cakes with Roasted Green Beans and Cajun Aioli. The taste mimics fried catfish so well I couldn’t believe it. The Cajun Aoili is so close to the creamy lemon tartar sauce I expect with my catfish, so this dish is a total winner for this Southern Gal.

Another one of my favorites is the Mango Curry with Chickpea Dumplings & Spinach. YUM. You can make the mango curry year round with frozen or canned mangoes. The curry sauce is really tasty & is great on rice, veggies, or even alone.

New Ingredients

Jackfruit can easily be seasoned & cooked to mimic pulled pork. I didn’t believe it until I tried it & you know what, I really liked it. This Peruvian Jackfruit Torta with Aji Verde and Crispy Plantains is made with canned Jackfruit. Add some vinegar-based coleslaw on a tasty bun & it’s dinnertime!

I’m always on the hunt for easy, tasty & lighter-fare lunches. This Moroccan Hazelnut Grain Bowl with Fregola and Orange Vinaigrette fits the bill perfectly! I haven’t cooked with tempeh before & I really liked this bowl. All the veggies, the orange-flavored vinaigrette & the crunchy hazelnuts make this dish a winner & it’s officially on the lunch rotation.

What’s the Catch?

There really is no catch. You may cancel or skip a few weeks at any time. We’ve skipped a few weeks here & there when I haven’t been thrilled with the menu choices. So far, all deliveries have been on time & no damaged or missing products. While there were a few meals I didn’t love, (I’m looking at you Nourish Bowl) the majority of the meals are really enjoyable.

THE VERDICT

I am Really Into This Purple Carrot Plant-Based Meal Delivery Plan. While it is a bit on the expensive side, the meals are overall really tasty & the portions are fairly large. Often, we’ve fed 3 folks with one meal.

Making the switch to a Plant-Based/Vegan Diet can be daunting for anyone & the Purple Carrot Delivery service makes it simple. We’ve found some really great ingredients & honestly, it feels good to eat more veggies. It’s better for you & better for the environment.

If you give it a try, let me know what you think!
