Hungryroot is an online service that delivers quick-and-easy healthy meals that can be made in less than 10 minutes. All the food is plant-based, nutrient-dense, and made from real ingredients.

Printed on the box flaps are Hungry Root’s mission and their commitment to using eco-friendly materials for the packaging.

All the ingredients arrived nestled within a recycled plant fiber insulated bag with ice packs on top.

Apart from the oats, the ingredients are to be combined into 2-3 component dishes. The info sheet gives a quick page reference showing where each dish is located in the recipe booklet.

The back of the info sheet also features a detailed inventory of all the items inside.

This subscription includes a booklet containing quick and easy steps for every dish featured for this month.

Here’s a message from Team Hungryroot where they introduce mini recipes!

We built Hungryroot to be your trusted food brand, and the easiest, most delicious way to eat healthy. This month, we’re excited to share a few updates that should streamline things even more.

Introducing: mini recipes! We know it’s easiest when you have instructions at your fingertips, so we’re bringing you short-and-sweet recipes that will appear in every delivery on the order slip in your box.

The reason for this switch? We’ve added so many new foods and combinations that we can no longer fit them all in one book! If you ever want full instructions with extra detail, cooking tips, and more, just head to and click on any of your combinations.

They even featured quick and simple tricks that would definitely make your cooking way much easier.

Another page is dedicated to Hungryroot and the kind of food they send to your door!

The March combinations are truly fantastic! It includes a whole wheat sprouted flatbread, cashew cheddar, superblend salad, and garlicky herb chickpea duo.

The booklet’s table of contents is so detailed. Under the dish name, there’s a rundown of the ingredients. It’s different from the last time we’ve received a Hungryroot box, as the dishes are no longer categorized into breakfast, lunch, sides, dinner, and sweets. But that is okay because, seriously, it doesn’t matter what time of the day you prepare and enjoy these dishes.

Every page contains 6 different kinds of recipes. It indicates the name, its ingredients, and the prep time. SO EASY!

Each recipe also comes with a very mouthwatering picture.

This part of the booklet features different kinds of delicious pasta bowls.

Meanwhile, in this part of the booklet is a group of grain bowl dishes.

Hungryroot also encourages subscribers to write them your feedback and comments and highlights their brand new foods – and there are a bunch! Since the last time we reviewed them they have dramatically expanded their menu and updated their packaging!

They also answered some frequently asked questions about the subscription.

Aside from giving suggestions and feedback, they also encourage their subscribers to tag Hungryroot on social media when uploading photos of your creations.

The chocolate chips were clearly visible on almost every part of the brownies.

Like any other brownie, this one features a sticky and thick texture with a delicious not-too-sweet taste!

On to the cooking part! For the Pesto Salmon Rice Bowl, we used the brown rice quinoa blend, hot smoked roasted salmon, and kale pesto.

Make sure to read the back of each packaging, as it contains some quick tips that would be very helpful for your cooking.

To make this dish, just heat the oil in a skillet and cook the brown rice for about 2 minutes then mix 4 tablespoons of kale pesto, then finish it with the whole salmon toppings. All that in just 4 minutes! It’s tasty and filling, and of course packed with protein, fiber, vitamin A, and vitamin C. Quinoa and brown rice is surprisingly delicious, while the fresh pesto and flaky salmon easily made it a gourmet-like dish.

The next recipe is Kohlrabi Peanut Takeout Noodles. For this, we need the Kohlrabi noodles, braised lemongrass tofu nuggets, and Thai peanut. We’ve actually tried this before and we loved it so we’re making it again!

In this simple Thai-inspired dish, we combined the noodles with the creamy peanut butter sauce and mixed it together with the lightly fried tofu. This dish is vegan and gluten-free, and definitely a great source of fiber and protein. It’s a quick and excellent choice for dinner, even faster than ordering a takeout. The tofu was pre-seasoned with lemongrass and it was such a standout. Meanwhile, the tangy sauce easily complemented the crispness and bitter notes in the veggie noodles.

Lastly, we tried the maple raisin pumpkin pie oats and cultured coconut cream!

The oats and raisins were so delectable!

To prepare, just pour at least 1/2 cup of water or milk of your choice and cover the lid for 2 minutes, then stir and enjoy!

Mix the ingredients carefully to make sure that everything inside is properly cooked.

Once done, you can transfer it to a bowl.

It’s tasty and filling, definitely a great breakfast choice!

This coconut cashew granola snack comes in a very handy packaging. It’s an ideal snack to bring anytime and anywhere.

Like the booklet said, most of the snacks we received from this box are ready to eat. You can just simply transfer them on a bowl and eat.

What’s ideal partner for the coconut cashew grain-free granola? It’s the cultured coconut cream!

It’s tasty but not overwhelmingly sweet, plus it’s so creamy too!

This time, we combined the cultured coconut cream with the cashew granola bar and the result is so amazing! My kids love to eat them as well!
