Easy Meals with Hello Fresh

Now that the kids have gone back to school easy meals are a must. When the younger ones get home from school they are tired and you need some dinners which can be made either in advance or prepared in advance. That is where Hello Fresh come in. 

Hello Fresh provide healthy recipe boxes. The boxes come packed with all the ingredients, pre weighed and ready to create delicious meals. We received a family box that came with four meals. Each meal made enough for all five of us to enjoy. I was amazed to see how many different ingredients were packed into the box.

We received four dishes and they all sounded so good, I could not wait to get cooking. The recipes that we had were:
  • Mushroom, Bacon and Pancetta Gnocchi
  • BBQ Sausage Skewers with Cheesy Wedges
  • Chorizo Crusted Tilapia
  • Jamie Oliver's South Asian Chicken Curry
You may notice that the last meal is a Jamie Oliver one. Recently Jamie Oliver has been working alongside Hello Fresh to create super healthy and delicious meals for families. All of the meat and vegetables that arrive in the boxes of a good, high quality and come with good use by dates.

The first meal that we tasted was the Mushroom, Bacon and Pancetta Gnocchi. This was such a flavoursome meal and one that I will definitely be making again. We all loved the depth of flavour that the pancetta brought to this dish. This is the sort of dish that we all love, the fresh vegetables, the grated Parmesan on the top and easy for me to make!

The next meal that I made was the BBQ Sausage Skewers with Cheesy Wedges. The skewers were more fiddly to make so were better to be made in advance if you know that you are going to be busy with the children. The cheesy wedges were a huge hit all round. The mustard and honey sausages went perfectly with the BBQ sauce. Being able to adjust the amounts used is a great way to make the meal the way everyone will love!

When it came to cooking the Chorizo Crusted Tilapia I did have a problem. Somewhere along the line I lost the recipe so I simply put the ingredients together and created a meal how I imagined it to be. Even though I had no recipe, because the flavours have been selected for you, the meal still turned out just as good!

We are due to have Jamie Oliver's South Asian Curry at the end of the week so keep an eye out for the pictures.

If you are looking for a recipe box that provides you with lovely recipes i would definitely recommend looking at Hello Fresh.
