Chloe Coscarelli of "By Chloe" Is Launching a Plant-Based Meal Kit
Meal kits are popping up everywhere to help busy people cook without the bother of choosing recipes and shopping. They're so en vogue, even Walmart has started selling Blue-Apron lookalikes.
In the newest meal kit collaboration,Chef Chloe Coscarelli, author of Chloe Flavor, has teamed up with online grocer Peapod to provide meals for plant-based and vegan eaters. Shoppers in New York City, Chicago, and Washington D.C. can now order everything they need to make Coscarelli’s incredible General Tso’s Tofu.
Cooking Light recently reviewed Coscarelli’s new cookbook, which was released in March, and found that, of the recipes we tried, the General Tso’s Tofu was an all-time favorite. Peapod's new meal kit serves two and retails for $14.99 per pack, loaded with pre-chopped and pre-measured ingredients.
If you don't live in one of the metro areas where the meal kit is available, don't despair. Peapod provides three additional recipes from Coscarelli’s book, and allows shoppers to shop directly on the page for ingredients. You can choose from vegan General Tso’s tofu, brussel sprouts tacos, "McVegan" breakfast sandwich, and Shelley’s Matzo.
These dishes are perfect for anyone looking to incorporate meat-free meals into their diets, including those sticking to vegan, vegetarian, and flexitarian lifestyles.
“My goal has always been to make vegan cooking easier and more enjoyable for at-home chefs,” Coscarelli said in a press release. “Vegan doesn’t have to mean bland and boring, and I’m really excited to share this General Tso’s Tofu meal kit with everyone. This is my first meal kit, so by partnering with Peapod, I’m hoping it will solve some meal time challenges people are facing.”
