This week we decided to try Hello Fresh. We had a voucher code for £25 off making it only £14.99 for 3 meals for 2 people. In case you are not familiar Hello Fresh is a delivery service that send you tasty recipes and ingredients straight to your door.
We signed up to the website and then downloaded the app where we were able to choose 3 meals from a selection of 5. We chose the Singapore Chicken Laksa, Speedy Steak Stir-fry and Pork Steak. The app allows you to select, each week, the meals you would like to try (always a different selection). It enables you to pause weeks when you don’t want a delivery and also has all the recipes on there should you want them electronically.
You choose a preferred delivery day and on the day they email you with a 2 hour time slot. It doesn’t matter if you are not in they will leave it in your chosen safe place and you don’t need to worry about the produce being left out of the fridge – the boxes are packaged with environmentally friendly insulation and cool packs.
When our box arrived we were keen to look inside. On top were 3 recipes cards showing all the information you need about each meal. This includes ingredients, nutritional information and step by step instructions. Each recipe card also has a coloured tab which corresponds to one of the paper bags in the box. Each bag contains everything you need (apart from the fridge items) to make the meal.
We decided to try the Pork Steak first and Lee laid out all the ingredients to see what we had. We liked that you got the right amount of each ingredient so there is little to no waste. Lee then set to work creating the meal. Lee is definitely the chef in our house as he enjoys it and I am not particularly fussed.
All 3 of the meals were delicious and things that we wouldn’t have thought to cook otherwise. We will definitely be using them again.
