Fresh Prep x Vij’s Collaboration

Fresh Prep was the first Canadian meal kit delivery service to deliver recipes in reusable Zero Waste Kits, which significantly reduces the need for single use plastic. They offer 14 delicious recipes each week, including vegetarian and vegan options, plus a variety of ready-to-eat meals, sides, salads, desserts and more. All ingredients arrive packed in reusable, insulated cooler bags with reusable ice packs.

Fresh Prep has been collaborating with some of the city’s top chefs and restaurants, so customers can bring world-class culinary experiences to their own kitchens. Previous collabs include Café Medina, Nuba, and Anh & Chi among others.

Vij’s has been recognized by the New York Times as “easily among the finest Indian restaurants in the world.”

The Vij’s collaboration features two recipes: One “meaty” dish, and one vegan dish: Vij’s Chickpeas, Potato & Coconut Curry with Spiced Peas, and Vij’s Masala Chicken Curry with Spiced Cauliflower.

“I wanted one “meaty” dish and one vegan dish to start,” says Meeru Dhalwala, the culinary force behind Vij’s Restaurant in Vancouver. “While I do have a beef curry on my menu, I treat beef like a special occasion meat we don’t need to eat much. Its carbon footprint is too huge and it’s not good for our arteries. In my home, we eat meat once a week.  When I was growing up, mom mostly made chicken (or goat) curry on Saturdays and we couldn’t wait. But we don’t eat just meat curry—it’s always accompanied by vegetables. Fun fact, goat is leaner and healthier than chicken. But goat also takes hours to cook. I’m not sure why goat hasn’t taken off in North America as a healthy meat option, but it’s a big seller on my Vij’s menu.”

“Another beauty of Indian cuisine is that we don’t eat as per diets.  We eat because it tastes satisfying and delicious.  Indian cuisine is vegan friendly but it isn’t vegan on purpose.  We are vegan/vegetarian at home except for our once a week meat.  Indian cuisine has such a perfect balance of taste, health/nutrition, ingredients, if done right.  So my chickpea and coconut curry is my ode to the rich beauty of vegan curries, even for those who aren’t vegan.” (Read the full blog with Dhalwala here).

The hope is that with these meal kits, home cooks who maybe aren’t as familiar with Indian Cooking will be introduced to delicious Indian curries that are simple to prepare, with absolutely no food waste. Recreate these recipes at home without the hassle of sourcing exotic spices or spending hours in the kitchen. Each 2-serving meal kit is $31.90, available to order until the end of March.
