Here is a selection of ready meals available for those times when you need something quick, simple and vegan!


They sell these which would go nice with something else out of the fridge or freezer or even a canned product to make a quick meal.

“Or why not try our balanced sweet potato falafel (Sweet potato falafel with cooked mixed rice, kale, chickpeas and tomato and chilli dressing). As well as being vegan, these balanced ready meals will also contribute to your 5 a day and provide great sources of fibre and protein.”
