Review: Mitch's Kitchen Frozen Ready Meals

Review: Mitch's Kitchen Frozen Ready Meals

Mitch’s Kitchen is a wonderful company, providing vegan and gluten free home-cooked ready meals which you can either prepare in the microwave or the oven, perfect for those nights when you don’t have a lot of time. All the food is healthy and free from all of the usual nasty chemicals you get in typical ready meals, as well as being free from nuts and palm oil, meaning that you’re not sacrificing your health, ethics or allergies when you need to eat a fast-paced meal.

Their company not only has great food, but has one of the best ethical footprints as well. For each meal they sell, they donate a meal to a child in need. As well as this, all of their packaging is 100% recyclable, and they have a carbon-neutral delivery service. As an added bonus, the kitchen runs on solar energy generated by solar panels on site.

I met the owners of the business at a local vegan festival and they were lovely people, I picked up four of their ready meals which I have reviewed for you below, but they have lots of other options on their website which I have linked here.

Gardeners Pie: The Gardeners Pie is a great hearty meal and feels very healthy with all of the veg packed inside. The creamy mash on top really adds to the flavour of the pie. As someone who isn’t the biggest fan of mushrooms, I didn’t notice the mushrooms in the pie as they were all mashed up, and this just added a more “meaty” texture to the pie. This is definitely one of my favourites!

Rating - 4/5 Stars.

Chocolate Chilli:

This chilli was awesome. It was a great warming meal and the chocolate added great depth to the flavour of the chilli. It wasn’t too spicy either, although there was definitely some heat in it. The flavours were delicious and was altogether a lovely meal.

Rating - 4/5 Stars.

Buckwheat Jambalaya:

Two words - vegan chorizo. Yeah, it’s as awesome as it sounds! This was definitely my favourite out of all of the meals I tried, it has a great combination of flavours and is packed full of veggies and spices for a beautiful Cajun-style dish.

Rating - 5/5 Stars.

Coconut Kathal Masala:

This coconut curry contains jackfruit, potatoes, cauliflower, chickpeas and lots of spices which comes together to create this nourishing meal. I love the range of flavours in this dish, and I love mixing it all in with the red rice. All in all, this dish is a tasty, warming dish which is packed with nutritious goodness.

Rating - 5/5 Stars.

Overall Rating - 5/5 Stars.

To conclude, it is definitely possible to have delicious, sustainable ready meals, for those days where you don’t have time to cook. I firmly believe in the ethics (and taste!) of this company and highly recommend it to everyone. At the time of writing they have a code for 15% off on their website, so it seems like the perfect time to try them out!

Let me know if you try anything from this company!
