Meal Starter Ideas

Each PlantPure Meal Starter comes with a simple recipe on the back. We suggest you try this first, then check out the bonus recipes in this database. Just click on the name of the meal starter under "Categories" to see the original recipe, plus one or more bonus recipes.

Keep coming back because we'll be adding more bonus recipes as we create them.

And of course, feel free to experiment with your own recipes using these meal starters. If you come up with a good one, contact us and we’ll consider adding it to our database so others can benefit from your creativity.

We hope you enjoy all these options!
