Vegan Ping Meals for Beginners
So far there aren’t huge numbers of vegan TV dinners but our crystal ball predicts that it won’t be long! Since we wrote this ‘recipe’ at the end of 2016, we’ve experienced an unprecedented year of vegan awareness – and masses of new products out in the shops. We know that a lot of you like to cook from scratch but we’re all busy and sometimes it needs to be a ping meal! These convenience meals seem to be the last hurdle for supermarkets but they’re getting there. We’ve also included lots of ‘convenience’ or ‘almost instant’ meals elsewhere on this website and in the 30 Day Vegan. The aim is to support people to create a quick, tasty meal.
The most up-to-date list is here and you can do a global search OR a search by major supermarkets. It comes from the mighty My Vegan Supermarket ready meals section
Aldi has a few things in the freezer, as does Lidl.
The Co-op is good on vegan labelling, less so on offering vegan options. Again, there may be a small selection of Indian vegetarian sides and other bits and pieces on offer.

Did you know that V30 is run by a charity?
We create vital resources to help educate everyone – vegan veterans, novices and the v-curious alike – about vegan food, health and nutrition; as well as the plight of farmed animals and the devastating environmental impact of farming.
Through this work we have helped thousands of people discover veganism; but we want to reach millions more! We rely entirely on donations as we don’t get any government funding. If you already support us, thank you from the bottom of our hearts, you are really making a difference! Please share our details with your friends and loved ones too, as every donation enables us to keep fighting for change.
