Morrisons said each meal via the boxes costs around £1.50 per head, but unlike other meal kits on the market, it contains full retail-sized packs of ingredients.
This means any leftovers can be used for other meals.
The Big 4 grocer said its recipe boxes contains 22 different products and weighs 14kg.
“Many of our customers enjoy eating meals as a family and we have seen customers do this more during the pandemic,” Morrisons head of food boxes Tessa Callaghan said.
“It can be difficult to constantly cook up new dishes that please everyone. So, we wanted to create a great value box that contained high-quality produce and recipe cards – to make it easier to try new things.”
Recipes in the boxes include spaghetti bolognese, vegetarian pasta bake, rosti topped cottage pie, sausage tray bake, and mixed bean chilli with wedges.
