Heating Instructions:

For your safety and optimal enjoyment, please ensure that your meals are heated to a minimum internal temperature of 165°F (74°C).

Reheating Options:
All our plant-based meals come in freezer-safe and microwave-safe containers, but for the best taste and texture, we recommend using the stove top or oven if available.

Stove Top:
For dry meals and small pot for stews and soups, use a pan and heat over medium heat. Stir gently until the meal is heated through.

Preheat your oven to 325°F (163°C). Transfer your meal into an oven-safe dish and cover it with foil. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until the meal is thoroughly heated.

If you prefer to use the microwave, set the power to 60%-70% and heat your meal for 3-8 minutes, or until it is heated through. Pause and stir occasionally to ensure even heating.

*Please Note:*
For safety, be sure to remove any plastic containers with sauces or dressings before reheating. These containers are not microwave safe and should be transferred to a microwave-safe dish if needed.

These will be available when you choose your meal packages. If you need further customization, please email us at info@delectablebyzarlajane.com.

We try to accommodate all customization requests however with the approval of our in house holistic nutritionist we are able to use a small amount of tomatoes (skin and seeds removed) or gluten free organic tamari for sauces.

        Please note: we are not able to to accommodate requests to remove any ingredients because of preference, sensitivity, and allergies.
