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.

Crispy Chickpea Tacos With Roasted Red Bell Peppers And Guacamole. 30 minutes, level 1, 780 calories per serving.

What a great lunch this made! We have grandchildren for dinner tonight so decided to do this for lunch and we are so glad we did. Didn’t take too much time at all.
Our avocado was firm so we couldn’t mash it up but I finely chopped it and it did just fine other than not sticking to the tortillas. And the roasted veggies… yummy. My husband, I don’t know why but he was surprised that the chickpeas came out crisp. Not sure what he expected as we’ve roasted them before.

 We’ve been trying to cut back by cutting the serving size in half.  I was able to do that, mine is made and waiting for my next lunch. My husband has been good about it until these tacos. He ate one and said it was so good he was going to have his other one today.

 Thanks for lunch Hello Fresh.

Sicilian Farro Caponata With Eggplant, Roasted Red Pepper, And Fresh Mozzarella. 40 minutes, level 1,

Did you know that farro and barley are interchangeable because they have similar characteristics? I didn’t until tonight. Farro looks and cooks a lot like barley and as far as taste, they are a lot alike. So if I make this recipe again and I will, if I can’t find farro I can substitute barley.

Saturday night is the night we go to a friend’s house and take goodies, enough to make a meal. Our friend happens to be 95. We used to go to her house about 5+ years ago, have a few hors d’oeuvres with wine and then go to some local restaurant. She’s just not up to going out anymore and that’s ok with us as we get Hello Fresh. She has loved the variety that we bring. There are 6 of us so we take along some extras like cheese, crackers, veggies and some type of dessert. This Hello Fresh box for 2 goes a long way. Tonight everyone had plenty, I made a plate for my friend for tomorrow and there’s still some left.

Tonight’s dinner was really good and filling with the farro. The mozzarella and sherry vinegar added the nice/mild tangy flavor. BUT, I just love basil so the next time I make this I’m going to double or even triple the basil.
Thank you Hello Fresh for another wonderful Saturday night get together dinner!

Brown Rice Bibimbap With Veggie Ribbons And Soy Ginger Sauce. 35 minutes, level 2, 510 calories per serving.

What a time I had! So for Christmas, I got my daughter a spiral vegetable cutter and she hadn’t tried it yet. I told her I wanted to borrow and try it for this dish. An hour after I start trying to cut the vegetables with this contraption, I finish! I told my daughter to put this thing in her next garage sale. In spite of that fiasco, this was delicious.

My husband really liked the “vinegar flavor.” I’m not sure if he meant the flavor from the pickled green onions or the soy sauce mixture which was so delightfully pungent. In most dishes, you mix up the vegetables but not in this one.  So when you take a bite you’re getting only 1 or 2 vegetables at most.

Korean dishes aren’t in our usual repertoire so this was a wonderful treat. 고맙습니다 Hello Fresh! (That’s thank you in Korean.)
