We feature a great Australian brand in the October Vegan Box called Turban Chopsticks. Turban Chopsticks was born when founder, Mei Yong set about creating pre-made meal kits and curry sauces with bold flavours that used clean ingredients and were foolproof and convenient!
Mei started Turban Chopsticks out of an inconvenience she encountered in her own life, early in her career.
“As I entered adulthood, my lifestyle changed. I was a busy working professional who travelled a lot and didn’t have much time to cook. After a long day, the last thing I wanted to do is spend hours in the kitchen. But, I still wanted a meal that was healthy and tasted amazing. I knew I wasn’t the only one who craved authentic home cooked meals – the kind I grew up with – but also didn’t want to use prepackaged food with suspicious ingredients and origins, or have the time to source and cook everything from scratch.”
Turban Chopsticks is my life’s work and passion. It’s the combination of all my food influences, my culture and heritage, my love of spices, and my desire to share beautiful nutritious food all wrapped up in a range of colourful meal kits and sauce jars.”
We are thrilled to feature a number of different Turban Chopsticks meal kits in the October Vegan Box for our customers to enjoy as well as a sneaky little discount for online orders directly with Turban Chopsticks. Below we share a delicious and EASY recipe for a warming dahl using the Jewelled Mung Dahl kit.
