Keeping affordable tinned vegan meals on hand, means you can stock up your cupboards then whenever you get the lunchtime munchies, just open a can, heat up in a pan and enjoy with bread for a quick nutritious meal.

Before cooking, read up on food safety for people & pets (many human foods like onion, garlic, spices are unsafe around animal friends).

Suma saag aloo

SUMA is a UK health food wholesaler, and their own-brand products can be found throughout most indie health stores and in some farm shops and supermarkets or buy in bulk online. Check out their amazing tinned ready-meals. They tick all the boxes. They are affordable, plant-based, packed with protein, delicious, have no palm oil (the stew dumpling can does) and in zero-waste tins. What’s not to love?

  1. Saag aloo is a spicy ready-made vegan curry.
  2. Baked beans with Lincolnshire sausages feature mini-sausages in tomato sauce with herbs and spices. Try on toast or jacket potatoes.
  3. Organic ravioli in tomato sauce (no protein in this one but packed with veggies). Try with garlic bread. Also in a mushroom version.
  4. Chorizo-style stew (ideal if you like very spicy food, this is a Spanish-inspired sausage with peppers and chickpeas).
  5. Vegan Mac n Cheese (again no protein, but one judge says this is good, you have to put your fork down to remember this is tinned!)
  6. Meatball chilli (a warmly spiced meal with soya) and vegan meatballs
  7. Vegan spaghetti bolognese (ideal for an instant snack, this blends soy mince and pasta with a rich tomato onion herb sauce).
  8. Vegan pea & ham soup (the ultimate classic, but plant-based). There are also many other soups including organic pea soup, minestrone and tomato (way more tomatoes than you-know-who!)

We Can Foods offers a nice line of plant-based meals in tins. Just heat and eat. The range  (the savoury versions have better reviews than the tinned desserts) includes:

  1. Bolognese (meat-free mince in tomato sauce)
  2. Carbonara (coconut cream with vegan ham & cheese)
  3. Thai red or green curry (meat-free chicken in chilli coconut sauce)
  4. Madras curry (meat-free chicken in tomato coconut sauce)
  5. Korma or tikka curry (made with meat-free chicken)
  6. Mexican chilli (meat-free mince & kidney beans in tomato)
  7. Szechuan curry (a Chinese curry with meat-free chicken)

Hodmedod’s Vaal Dhal is inspired by the cuisine of northern India, but uses British-grown fava beans for a wonderful instant curry.
