Upton's Naturals Vegan BBQ Bowl

This is going to be another one of those posts that makes you upset that you don't live in the Midwest, so I'll apologize now. I'm sorry, so sorry! Since I do live in the Midwest, I was able to try Upton's Naturals newest ready-to-go offering, the Vegan BBQ Bowl. This is what you call a complete meal! Barbequed seitan, kale and mac & cheese - 16 ounces worth, in a ready-to-go microwavable bowl. Two minutes in the microwave and zap, dinner is served. 

The barbequed seitan is exactly what you've come to expect from Upton's- plump, juicy and plentiful. The sauce is sweet and tangy. The mac & cheese isn't as cheesy as some people would like, but I liked it just fine. I mixed it with the BBQ sauce and it was heavenly. And to my surprise, there was kale at the bottom of the bowl. Talk about a nice, well-rounded meal. If the Vegan BBQ Bowl isn't your style, there is also an Indian style Vegan Ashram Bowl and the Vegan Macro Bowl. Thank you (again) to Upton's for making some amazing Vegan food!


  1. Yummy!! Did you get this at Whole Foods? I need to go look for it (I'm in Chicagoland). Thanks for the heads-up.

    1. Sure did! They better have it in the Chi :)

    2. I know this is a late reply Cabby but if you haven't already been go to Upton's Breakroom at Grand and Hoyne (one block west of Damen) in Chicago. Delicious food like this (and more).

  2. annnnd jealous! this looks perfectly amazing!

  3. Chicago is so full of stuff like this. It's not fair. Lazy vegans are not as well served here.
