Hello Fresh Vegetarian February 2017 Subscription Box Review + Coupon

Hello Subscription may earn compensation via links in this post. Read the full disclosure

Hello Fresh is a meal kit subscription box with complete recipes and ingredients to make 3 meals every week, with each meal feeding either two or four people, depending on the plan you choose.

Though it is a subscription, you can pause your deliveries when needed – whether you are out of town, have other dinner plans, or just aren’t in love with that week’s selections. The standard subscription provides high-quality meats (free-range chicken, antibiotic meats, etc.) to use in the recipes.  

DEAL: Currently, you can save $40 off your first box with coupon code 7UT7K8.

Hello Fresh has great instructions, and they are easy to follow even if you are an inexperienced cook. There are even some kitchen tips included in the information card.

Though we do eat meat, we cook vegetarian three times a week. Thankfully, Hello Fresh has a vegetarian subscription for both casual and dedicated vegetarians.

The boxes used by Hello Fresh keep all the ingredients for the recipes in order, and they stack nicely in the fridge. Within each box, everything but the largest vegetables is separately packaged and is packed at the bottom. Condiments and canned goods are provided in high-end, commercial packaging. Hello Fresh usually provides spices in their own, pre-measured branded packaging.

Jammy Fig And Brie Grilled Cheese With Arugula Mushroom Salad. 25 minutes, level 1, 517 calories per serving.

This was a repeat meal and I wish I had realized it sooner.  Not only did I use the same plate to take pictures on but I forgot to use my panini press, dang!  I had also said I’d add romaine lettuce to the salad, another dang!  Oh well, we still enjoyed the grilled brie with jam.  The jam adds such a nice touch of sweet to the sandwich.  And we are still big BIG fans of brie so we enjoyed the sandwich very much.  The roasted mushrooms accents the arugula salad so much so I wanted lots more of the mushrooms.

We are trying to cut back on our portion size so we cut everything in half and lunch is waiting for us in the refrigerator.  It is amazing just how much food we get for 2 servings.

The did change the name a bit in case you try to look it up.  Old title: Fig & Brie Grilled Cheese with Crispy Mushroom and Arugula Salad.  Slightly different name, same great taste.

Tunisian Freekeh Stew With Roasted Chickpeas And Greek Yogurt. 35 minutes, level 1, 757 calories per serving.

This is another repeat except they’ve changed the name, it was Waad’s Tunisian Freekeh Stew, either way it was still freekeh good! (That’s my idea of food humor). I did notice that the difference from the old recipe and this new recipe was that the chef added whole wheat pita that you cut into pieces and then baked in the oven.  This was a nice added touch.  I do like bread/crackers with stews/soups.

I think of stews and soups as comfort food I guess because they warm you up.  This dish was such a nice pot of stew, tasty, with broth and filling.  Very comforting on a mildly cool Florida day.  And just like the recipe from last year, I started popping in the browned crispy, seasoned chickpeas in my mouth as soon as they came out of the oven.  So irresistibly good!
My 9 year old granddaughter helped cook most of this dish.  So if you’re not good in the kitchen, there are really no excuses.  Simple, simple, simple…you can do this.

Colorful Confetti Salad With Corn, Beans, Feta, And Cajun Spices. 30 minutes, level 1, 581 calories per serving.

Feast for the eyes! Not only was this a colorful dish but a humongous amount also.  When my daughter walked into the house she asked what smelled so good and she’s a finicky eater.  She walked in while I was roasting the sweet potatoes in the Cajun Spice Blend.  And my husband let me know that he doesn’t like whole sweet potatoes but he does like the way they were fixed in this recipe.  And he said, ” this is a tasty concoction.”  “Tasty concoction,” was that my husband?  He looked and sounded like my husband but those aren’t normal words out of his mouth.

This was definitely a crowd pleaser in my house, glad I didn’t have the crowd but if I did I would/could have easily served this maybe with some cornbread.  Large amount, very delicious, colorful, easy to make.  What could be better?
