Veganuary has arrived and sadly we can’t go anywhere to enjoy a vegan feast. However, you need not worry as these Glasgow restaurants and businesses are bringing vegan food straight to your door in the form of DIY kits and at home packages for you to enjoy. If you’re ready to attempt to cast aside meat and lower your carbon footprint for the month, here are 7 truly scrumptious plant-based DIY kits from Glasgow’s best eateries to work your way through this month.
It’s true what they say, you can take the girl out the restaurant but you can’t the restaurant out of the girl – especially if she can order a DIY kit straight to her door. So sit back, relax and wait for the vegan treats to come to you.
Launching earlier on in the year at Paesano Pizza, fans of their award-winning pizza can now get hold of their very own bake at home pizzas again (doughy crust included!) thanks to this Glasgow pizzeria. Paesano are offering two vegan pizzas to choose from- spiced butternut squash or courgette and sunblush tomatoes. You can now enjoy pizza from one of the top ten pizzerias in Europe, also included in our guide to the best pizzas in Glasgow, and try to pass it off as your own. Cook at home pizzas start from £5 and you can order them via Deliveroo and Uber Eats, as well as some tasty side dishes or extra toppings like olives, artichokes and balsamic onions.
Biff’s has been named London’s best vegan junk food joint by a member of the Secret Media team – and rightfully so! Fortunately, these insanely talented chefs have created a couple of meal kits featuring their famous burgers to carry us through Veganuary with a touch of indulgence. You’ll have The Big Jack Kit (chicken-style jackfruit patties, vegan brioche buns and their top secret burger sauce) and The Father Jack (chicken-style jackfruit patties, bourbon BBQ sauce, onion rings and their infamous vegan bacun jam) to choose between – or better yet, treat yourself to both. Order yours here.
3. Stack and Still
Those with a sweet tooth cannot go wrong with Stack and Still’s insanely delicious pancakes. Launching their pancake mix in December 2019, the pancake pioneers were ready to feed the nation pancakes from home before the lockdown even began! Their vegan pancake mix (which is also gluten-free) contains the ingredients to make approximately 20 large pancakes, follow the instructions on the pack and then all you need is to add some vegan toppings to your stack. Peanut butter, Oreos, berries, banana, dark chocolate chips or all of them! Head to their website to order yours.
Launching this month in time for Veganuary, Veganizza is bringing part-baked vegan pizzas to your door as well as nationwide. It’s the perfect way to have the fresh-out-of-the-oven experience at home while the restaurant is closed to eat-in – and you can take all the credit. Win-win. The bake at home vegan pizzas can be ordered here from just £7.50. And differentiating themselves from the competition, they’re offering eight different vegan pizza varieties for you to choose from, including a truffle mushroom and Tuscan sausage one.
Tortilla have been providing Mexican delights to Glaswegians for years and they recently launched no carne chilli with tempeh, as well as a range of home quesadilla and nacho kits to see us through Veganuary. They have some tasty vegan DIY quesadilla kits available and each requires very minimal effort to assemble and come with tortilla chips and dips. Now anyone can become a fully fledged chef from the comfort of their own home. You can order yours via Deliveroo here.
