Plant Power Packing a Punch: Purple Carrot

I wouldn’t have ever considered myself a chef in the kitchen, considering pasta is one of my weekly specialties. Don’t get me wrong, I do enjoy a basic bowl of marinara pasta with veggies from time to time, but I needed to boost my culinary feats.

This all change when I discovered Purple Carrot!

With food box delivery on the rise, I thought I would try one myself.  As a self-proclaimed health food enthusiast, I went online to find a food box that would be delicious, healthy, and turn me into the chef I’ve always wanted to become!

Purple carrot is a customizable vegan food delivery company that delivers fresh ingredients right to your doorstep. That’s right, it’s all perfectly packaged in one singular box. No grocery store lines and no inconvenience. You can choose what recipes to order or you can stick to one of their preplanned options which are all sent weekly. There are three options to choose from- the Quick and Easy, High Protein, or Chef’s Choice. All the ingredients are sent portioned out so all you have to do is a little bit of chopping, mixing, and cooking. As their tagline states, “Open, cook, Enjoy”.

Ever sit at home and crave a bowl of rich, steaming hot soup? I know I definitely have my days of wanting to sprawl on my couch with Netflix on the T.V., all cozied up with a comforting bowl.

Purple Carrot fulfilled this craving. The Fresh Basil and Chickpea Soup encompasses a broad array of savory flavors. The soup’s creamy flavor is enhanced with spices including cumin, cardamom, cinnamon, and turmeric. Protein is incorporated into the boisterous bowl through chickpeas being blended in. All the fresh ingredients like onions, minced ginger, basil, and chickpeas were all prepared and ready to be put into a food processor.  In less than 30 min, the soup was surely a crowd pleaser and was delightfully garnished with baked sugary carrots and crispy chickpeas. Each of the flavors created an explosion in your mouth, truly putting a unique twist on a classic soup.

Canned soup is a thing of the past for me now! Hello homemade healthy soup!
