We Tried Veestro Meal Delivery. Here’s Our Review.
* This article is sponsored by Veestro. The opinions and content presented here are my own.
While I love to cook, I have no problem admitting that I love coming home for something quick and easy to heat up on days when I’m too busy or too tired to cook a meal. And even though I’m not a vegan, this former vegetarian knows that not only is a plant-based diet proven to reduce the chances of developing many chronic diseases, it is also an eco-friendly thing to do. But I’m not going to sit here and say that eating plants or plant-based foods all day is easy for me. And making quick and satisfying herbal dishes can be even more of a challenge. So I’m always on the lookout for creative ways to add more plants to my diet. And if that saves me from having to wash a sink full of dirty dishes, then please bring it.
This is why when Veestro, the #1 classified 100% vegetable and vegan friendly meal delivery service, asked us to try their meals, I jumped at the chance. There is nothing that says you have to be vegan to eat vegan. And like I said, the more plants I can have, the better. Veestro delivers fully prepared, organic and non-GMO vegan meals right to your doorstep, without any preservatives. Veestro offers over 50 main courses for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The dishes are globally inspired with flavors ranging from Italian, Asian to Tex-Mex and more. They also have a variety of options for special dietary needs and preferences, including high protein, gluten-free, nut-free, low-calorie, kosher, and even soy-free options. So if you think eating plant-based means eating tofu 24/7, I’m here to tell you with Veestro that’s not the case. That’s unless you really want it.
We tried a bunch of Veestro dishes. Here are some of our favorites.
These juicy, crispy and light little chicken-like nuggets have a texture and flavor similar to the real thing. And honestly, who doesn’t love a chicken nugget? They also come with a barbecue sauce on the side. These are perfect for an afternoon snack or as part of a dinner party. The portion was generous and two people can share them. You can also save the other half for another day. You’ll definitely want to stock up on it to warm yourself up whenever you crave a hot chicken nugget or snack. They would also work well mixed on a salad, or stuffed in a sandwich or wrap.
It was probably my favorite Veestro dish. Vegetables like red and green peppers and onions are sautéed with crumbled tofu and spread between corn tortillas, topped with vegan cheese and served with a hearty enchilada sauce. I could definitely see myself eating this at least once a week and the best part is I felt really satisfied afterwards. This one was full of flavor and again a generous portion. With just 250 calories, 19 total net carbs, and 13 grams of protein, this is a great option for the size.
Beluga Lentils Ember
For me, this one was more of a side dish, but still enjoyed the South East Asian inspired flavor very much. Black beluga lentils are cooked in coconut milk with quinoa and vegetables like peas, yellow squash, zucchini, rainbow carrots, collard greens, and potatoes. Spices like ginger, cumin, turmeric, paprika and cinnamon give this dish its unique flavor profile.
Soba noodles with peanut sauce
If you love Asian-inspired flavors, this dish is for you. The soba noodles are topped with grated broccoli, carrots, tofu, garlic and spices, then drizzled with a peanut sauce. This one is super tasty and the best part is you can eat this dish cold or reheated depending on your mood.
Red curry tofu
If you love Indian and Thai flavors, this curry should be on your list of dishes to try. Tofu, broccoli, cauliflower and carrots are simmered with slightly spicy curry and fragrant herbs and spices like lemongrass, galangal (Thai ginger), coriander seeds, ginger and cayenne pepper. Like all of the Veestro dishes we’ve tried, this one is super sweet with tons of flavor.
Veestro’s breakfast burrito is a total winner. And if you are looking for something, you can really go for it. Black beans, tomatoes, tofu, onions and garlic are mixed with herbs and spices like cilantro, chili powder and cayenne pepper, then wrapped in a whole wheat tortilla. It’s served with potatoes for breakfast and a delicious, flavorful red sauce on the side, perfect for dipping. It also contains 17 grams of protein and can easily be split into two servings. It’s exactly the kind of quick and easy meal that will have you having a busy morning.
Kale and quinoa salad
Who knew you could freeze kale, thaw it in the fridge, sprinkle it with a little dressing and you’re good to go? I didn’t until I tried Veestro’s delicious kale salad mixed with quinoa, dried cranberries, chunks of broccoli, and pickled chunks of tempeh. The tahini dressing on this salad is positively addictive and I can see myself eating this salad on a regular basis. If you forget to take it out of the freezer, a few hours on the counter will defrost it. I think it may even taste good warmed gently on the stove.
Veestro Foodie tip!
Veestro’s choice of main courses spins a bit and they even offer limited, seasonal specials like their herbal-crusted Turkish dinner for a plant-based holiday-inspired feast that is pretty cool. This is great for those who always like to try new things, but if there is something you really enjoy, the best solution is to refuel in case it gets taken off the menu for a while.
How long does it take to cook the dishes?
Some Veestro meals, like their kale salad or soba noodles, simply need to be thawed in the fridge overnight and then ready to eat. Other dishes can be reheated on your stove, in your oven or toaster or microwave in just a few minutes. Dishes like their curries heat up quickly on the stovetop where other dishes like the casserole of enchilada or eggplant parmesan are ready in about 30 minutes or less if you bake them.
What about nutritional information?
Veestro is completely transparent about the ingredients they use. If you want more detailed nutritional information on a specific dish, just click on the entry you are interested in when ordering. You will see a description of the entry with a full list of ingredients and nutritional information. It is also indicated on the outside of each meal plan. All dishes are vegan, non-GMO, organic and free from preservatives.
How do Veestro meal plans work?
Veestro offers three different styles of herbal meal plans ranging from 10 to 30 meals per delivery. Once you have chosen your meal plan and the delivery frequency, your meals are then shipped to your doorstep. That’s all.
Meals can cost as little as $ 9.90, which is quite reasonable considering that these are fully prepared, fully organic meals that are shipped directly to you. Fast food or quick options can easily cost the same or more without adding any nutritional value. With Veestro, the key to keeping your meal cost as low as possible is to order more meals per shipment. You’ll also save an additional 10% by signing up for the Autoship program instead of just ordering your boxed meals once. If you are hesitant to commit to autoship, Veestro is extremely flexible and you can always change, suspend or cancel your order at any time.
Veestro meal plan options
The Veestro A La Carte option allows you to pick and choose each of your appetizers with orders ranging from 10 to 30 meals per delivery. You can choose a single dish or 30 different dishes if you like variety. This flexible option is perfect for picky eaters or anyone with specific dietary needs.

Who is Veestro perfect for?
Overall I really enjoyed the whole Veestro experience. It’s great value for money considering the quality of the food you get, the time it can save you, and the food waste it can eliminate in your home.
Veestro is really perfect for anyone looking to get more plant-based foods in their diet. This is especially true if you’re short on time, hate planning meals, only cooking for one, can’t cook, or you’re tired of eating out.
Of course, Veestro is great if you’re already a vegan. It’s obvious. But it’s also perfect if you’re planning to go vegan or vegetarian but don’t know what to eat or are just looking for high-quality foods that you can reheat on the fly.
I can honestly say that for the first time in a long time, I’m really excited about eating plant-based. And that’s 100% thanks to Veestro.
