First Look: The V-Box, a vegan meal subscription service by V-Grits


V-Grits – Louisville’s only Vegan Food Truck – is launching a new vegan recipe subscription service called the V-Box. They are still finalizing the details, but the V-Box will come delivered to your door on a weekly basis, filled with a delicious recipe and all of the ingredients needed to make it. ¬†We were selected to test the V-Box before launch.

On our doorstep was a box from V-Grits, and inside were 3 unique recipes, with all of the ingredients needed to make them. Everything inside was measured and labeled with the recipe that the ingredient went with, making it extremely easy to select our first meal and get it started.

The recipes for the test box were:

  • Orange Cauliflower with Red Quinoa
  • Mediterranean Sweet Potatoes with Greek-Dressed Arugula
  • Fusilli with Sundried Tomato Tapenade and Roasted Kale

For our first meal, we chose the one that looked the most complicated: Fusilli with Sundried Tomato Tapenade and Roasted Kale. The ingredients were all top-notch, fresh, and organic when available. The instruction sheet, filled with step-by-step photos and instructions grouped together, was easy to follow, and we had a lot of fun working together on a recipe that we’ve never tried before. The instruction sheet also included preparation & cook times, both for novices and for experts, which were pot on with how long it took us.

Once finished, we sat down for the meal, and it was delicious! The tapenade had an excellent, robust flavor that really carried the dish, and the roasted kale was better than any we’ve made before.

The V-Box is launching later this winter – follow V-Grits on Twitter to keep up!
