Aldi Fans Swear By These Vegan Chinese Take-Out-Inspired Bowls

What's better than sitting down to enjoy a warm bowl of tasty, satisfying Chinese food? Not much, except maybe enjoying a bowl that is delicious, completely vegan, and can be ready to eat in under five minutes. Luckily, Aldi has made this a reality with the release of their new Earth Growth meat free bowls in three tasty flavors. The hearty beef and broccoli bowl is flavored with soy sauce, spices, and a savory sauce, and the spicy General Tso's chicken bowl is made with red and green bell peppers, dry chili, and carrots on a bed of white rice. 

The orange chicken delivers the perfect blend of sweet and tangy orange chicken, served on white rice and flavored with soy sauce, ginger, carrots, and broccoli. Each bowl contains just 440 calories or under, zero grams of trans fat, and at least 15 grams of protein, according to Aldi. They are also completely vegan and free from artificial color, making them a great plant-based alternative for expensive take-out dishes.
