Day after day, night after night, it can be a real challenge to come up with new idea of what to cook for the family. That’s especially so if you’re not a creative “I love being in the kitchen” kind of person like me. Not only do I find it tough to wade through new recipes but then there’s the issue of having to go out and buy all of the ingredients. HelloFresh streamlines the process by doing all the legwork for you and delivering everything you need for easy meals to cook. Oh, and it’s available nationwide!
HelloFresh delivers clearly outlined recipes and all the necessary ingredients right to your door. All you need to do is cook them. Deliveries arrive weekly and include three complete meals to feed either two people or four. You can choose classic or vegetarian.
A vegetarian box arrive at our place. My family and I not vegetarians in the slightest but we were up to try the dishes. Directions were very easy to follow and everything was done in about half an hour. I love how everything you need is already packaged together for quick access.
There’s no option to modify the order for allergies but, since everything arrives in separate packages, we were easily able to make necessary changes to make the dishes gluten-free. For example, in the first dish I made (Yellow Squash and Black Bean Tostada), it was a simple to switch out the flour tortillas for corn tortillas for Frans. I just had to make sure I kept them separate when cooking.
We really enjoyed this dish and would eat it again. As for the Spiced Grilling Cheese with Barley & Avocado Salad and Roasted Eggplant & Peppers with Lentils and Couscous dishes, well, we weren’t too fond of them. I did have to substitute the couscous and the barley but the combination of flavors just didn’t appeal to our palates.
Maybe next time we’ll have to go with the classic (read “meat”) box. I do have to say that these recipes allowed me to be a little adventurous. This was the first time I’ve cooked with many of these ingredients and, due to the easy directions, I’m now more comfortable with exploring even more foods.
