Today marks Plant Power Day, and Alpro has created limited edition waste-free and fully edible takeaway in honour of the day. Not only is all the food in the meal plant-based, Alpro have also created edible packaging.
The takeaway is a Plant Based Bucket (PBB), and is filled with classic ‘chicken’ and chips, made using mushroom nuggets, sweet potato fries and a creamy garlic dip. The bucket is made from nuts, seeds and spices using a secret recipe.
The PBB is available from today in London and Manchester via Deliveroo to celebrate the day and costs only £5 (including delivery) to enjoy a plant-based feast.
Stephanie Balsmon-Eynon, head of Plant Power at Alpro says: “We’re launching PBB to show the nation what’s possible using the amazing power of plants.
“We’ve used a tasty mix of mushrooms and Alpro Almond Unsweetened drink to make the ‘nuggets’, and the sweet potato fires are the perfect blend of fluffy and crispy.”
Stephanie adds: “The bucket has a crunchy base made using a tasty mix of fennel seeds, nigella seeds, sesame seeds and pumpkin seeds – meaning it’s sort like a crispbread. It’s deliciously moreish, and really is good enough to eat; especially when paired with the Alpro-based creamy garlic dip,.”
Plant Power Day celebrates the benefits of following a plant-based diet, which is becoming increasingly popular.
“We’ve always said that the future of food is plant-based, because this way of eating is good for people and good for the planet – and now, thanks to Alpro, plant-based could be the future for takeaways too,” Stephanie continues.
“For us, it’s even more exciting to bring this ‘world first’ to life on Plant Power Day, because we created this day to encourage people to add more plants to their plates and see how tasty, exciting and easy it can be. Hopefully, in launching PBB, we will inspire even the most carnivorous Deliveroo customers to give plant-based eating a try – on Plant Power Day and beyond.”
