Hello Fresh Review!

28 May 2014

Two foodie blog posts in one month? oh go on then...
Last month I stumbled across an advert for Hello Fresh! on Youtube and ever since I've been harping on about them to anyone who will listen. And now it's your turn! 
If you haven't heard of them, Hello Fresh! is a service that delivers fresh ingredients right to your door, in a cool box, all packaged in the right amounts for the recipes to make either three or five different meals for two or four people. As Goblin wasn't up for trying it (pfft), we decided to opt for the five meals for two people package and haven't looked back since. 

Wanna know why I love them so much??
Let me tell ya.. 

The first reason is because it's enabled me to try tonnes of recipes that I would have never ever EVER thought of creating by myself. (If I'm being honest I probably would have run away screaming from most of them if I have only known the title of them!).
The second reason is because all the ingredients come in the exact proportions needed. No more wasting food and ingredients, having half used jars and packets of ingredients floating around the kitchen never to be used again. 
The third reason is if I can avoid the hell that is Sainsburys Supermarket in Balham then I will snap that opportunity up quicker than you can say Our Little Balham Life. 
And lastly...cost wise. For us it has worked out much cheaper than buying a big shop at the shops at the weekend and forgetting half way through the week what ingredients were for what meals. It's also stopped us popping there every few days to pick up those few niggly ingredients we always forget! 

So there... the logistical reasons why I love Hello Fresh!... and now onto the REAL GOOD STUFF. 

The food.  

One fork Summertime Tomato Macaroni. 

Lebanese Lamb Wraps with Minted Tzatziki and Toasted Almonds. 

Cheeky Chicken Chow Mein with Oyster Sauce and Water Chestnuts.

This one was my FAVOURITE out of them all... Pan-Fried Chicken with Dukkah Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Citrus Sour Cream. 

Sweet n' Sticky Thai style Beef Salad. 

And this one was my Mum's favourite... Slow Roasted Vine Tomato and Goat's Cheese Tart. 

As you can see... the food looks delicious. But what's more important is that it tastes bloody delicious too! 

All of the recipes come with real handy recipe card with step by step instructions (and pictures - yay!) so it really is straightforward from start to finish. I suppose that's the fifth reason then!

  1. I have been eyeing these up for ages and really want to try them out but I just don't know if I could justify the money - we try and spend £50 or less a week on food (incl all our food shops and any eating out etc) and spending around that (is that roughly how much it costs - can't view the website at work) just on dinners seems a lot, though looking at these recipes they do look absolutely delicious! xo

  2. So cool! I'm so unadventurous in the kitchen, partly because I can never be bothered to go out and pick out all the ingredients, so I might give this a go! xx

  3. I BLOODY LOVE THESE BOXES! Have also been harping on about them- great post. Nomnomnommmmmmm xx

  4. These meals look YUMMY! I love that it is all portioned out for you, however I think that without discount it may be a little pricey compared with the weekly food shop. I think I might try it out just for the lamb wrap though! OH MY!


Go on... stalk me a little..
