From Wingbean’s website:

Wingbean makes tasty vegan cuisine and delivers it right to your door. We know you’re busy, that’s why we do the cooking for you.

I’m busy, and I like tasty vegan cuisine, so I figured why not check it out. They even have a non-gluten option, which I ordered. The menu for this week was:

  • Senorita Pasta – Delicious pasta dish with a creamy cheesy sauce, mixed with black beans and other veggies. Possibly the best meal of the week.
  • Mini BBQ with Coleslaw. Surprisingly good. Much more interesting and satisfying than I thought it would be.
  • Portobello Tapenade – Kind of weird. I ate it, but I’m not sure I liked it.
  • Chickpea of the Sea – A chickpea “tuna” salad, similar to what Earthfare sells but a little better. Very good.
  • Green Man Lasagna (with rice lasagna noodles) – Super delicious and fun. I don’t get to eat lasagna often.
  • Summer Kale Saute with Shitake Bacon – LOVED the bacon. The kale was OK.
  • Steamed Baby Carrots with Herbed “Cream” Sauce – Very good, but no one could be expected to eat that many carrots in a week.
  • Minestrone Soup – I haven’t tried this yet, there’s just so much food.
  • Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies – Delicious, of course. They’re cookies. But they all stuck together so it was more like a bag of cookie pieces.

The service is $70+tax. For this, you easily get enough food for 10 good-sized lunches. The food quality is on par with eating left-overs from a really good restaurant. It’s certainly far better than I would make for myself.

There are a couple things I would change, if it were up to me:

  1. I’d eliminate the cookies, or make the “tasty treat” something that is sugar-free. As it is, I will probably ask to leave out the cookies next time. It’s hard enough to avoid sugary desserts, without having them delivered to my doorstep.
  2. It sure would be nice if the food was delivered on Sunday so that I could have it for my lunches Monday-Friday. It comes on Monday, so I don’t get to use it until Tuesday, and now I still have food going into the weekend, which isn’t quite as useful.

I probably won’t sign up to order meals every week, but I will certainly order again soon. It’s a high quality service, and a good price for what you get. Check out Wingbean here.

    I would love to see Wingbean successfully take off in Asheville. The couple that started the company are phenomenal people, and Pamela, who does the cooking, is incredibly creative in the kitchen.

    I tried their food and it was not very good, especially compared to Veg-In-out who I hear they used to work for. Plus it seems that many of the items on their menu were on the other guy’s menu a week or two before?? Same business and same menu items but not as good? Doesn’t sound to creative to me. But it was worth trying, I Guess.

  6. Jeannie Says:

    Their food is delicious and Customer Service is wonderful. I have tried both Wingbean and Veg-in Out and WingBean is much better- Veg in out uses too much tvp and their food is too dry. WingBean’s dishes have developed flavor and are not dry. Totally recommend- you will not be disappointed. My kids love it too.
