Some may claim that vegans are a tough crowd to please, but it is a cold, hard fact that the meal delivery market offers too few options to the veggie-loving lot. Even the companies that specialize in vegan cuisine quite often offer bland meals cooked up by chefs who seem to know very little about the vegan diet. When it comes to meal kits, the situation is even worse.
Unfortunately, even the uber-popular meal kit company Blue Apron does not have special meal kits for vegans. However, it would be wrong to say that it has nothing to offer to those on a plant-based diet.
Finding delicious Blue Apron vegan recipes may require a bit more time, but it is far from impossible. You need to take a look at the full list of ingredients, as well as the nutritional information provided, and make sure that the recipe in question is completely vegan.
In this post, we will introduce you to several Blue Apron vegan recipes that we loved and show that even though they are scarce, they are more than worth the time you need to spend searching for them. Here are our favorites.
Farro & Pickled Rhubarb Salad With Radishes & Spiced Walnuts
A great choice for fans of grain salads, this dish features a wealth of fresh, flavorful veggies combined with earthy farro, including refreshing arugula and celery, rich, creamy avocado, sautéed shallot and radishes, and of course, gorgeous rhubarb pickled in vinegar with the addition of honey for some delicious extra sweetness.
Boasting a range of exciting textures, the dish is further enriched with an interesting, crunchy garnish – walnuts toasted with a fragrant spice blend including brown sugar, cayenne pepper, and cumin.
Kung Pao Broccoli With Garlic Chives & Black Rice Noodles
For us, the gorgeous photo of this exotic dish was enough to make us want to try it out immediately. Inspired by Sichuan Kung Pao, it features warm and delicate flavors that keep you craving for more. The tenderly roasted broccoli is combined with nutty black rice noodles and infused with the rich aroma of the spicy sauce made of scallions, ginger, garlic chives, red chile paste, soy glaze, and hoisin sauce. Although beaming with a variety of flavors, it is perfectly balanced and incredibly delicious.
This vibrantly colored vegan Kung Pao with a twist is surprisingly easy to make and ready in just around half an hour.

This lovely stir-fry is like summer on a plate, featuring all the favorite veggies of the season – zucchini, sweet peppers, and corn. The beautiful vegetables are mixed with hearty soba noodles and the dish is made even more flavorful with the addition of the amazing sweet chili-ponzu sauce. Finished off with a garnish of pan-toasted cashews and citrusy ginger, the dish looks absolutely fantastic and it tastes wonderful as well.
