Hello Fresh Vegetarian Box Review


As my due date gets closer and closer, my urge to cook has really tanked.  So, I was super happy when my friend Ashley over at NeverHomeMaker did a Hello Fresh box giveaway, and I won!



The first meal in the box was Jamie's Super Tasty Gnocchi.  This was so tasty and easy.  You basically boil the gnocchi, cook down the veggies, and toss it all together.  This made a TON of gnocchi.  It was definitely enough for 4 servings.




The next meal we tried out was the Heirloom Tomato Flatbread.  I had some leftover sausage for Josh from the farmer's market, so I put that on half.  He's really been enjoying the veggie meals, but of course, he would prefer meat.  This seemed like a good instance to throw some on.  I expected this meal to not be terribly filling, thus the extra gnocchi in the picture, but it was SO filling.  The crust was fluffy, the pesto was creamy, and the mozz cheese was great.



The dish came with arugula tossed with balsamic and olive oil, which we topped our pizza with.  Now, I'm not a big fan of arugula, so I tried it, but mostly left this off.

The third meal that came in our box was Quinoa Stuffed Peppers,  which unfortunately, we didn't eat.  It looked tasty, but we just never got around to making it.  Apparently, even though Hello Fresh is easy, it was still more than I wanted to mess with as pregnant as I am.  I think that dish didn't sound as great as the other ones.  It did look great.

I am not getting anymore boxes right now, but I think it's a great option for busy people.  The boxes are 60 bucks and come with 3 meals, which says 2 servings a piece.  I think the servings are crazy generous, though, so you could possibly get two meals out of each.

So, I would definitely give this a try, if you are looking for some easy meals.  Now, I don't think this would be the best for vegans, because you don't get to customize the vegetarian boxes.  The meat boxes give you the option to pick which 3 recipes you want.  But, if you're a cheese/egg eater, it would be an easy way to get some creative dinner ideas into your kitchen.

This post is not sponsored at all.  I won a free gift box and tried it out.  All opinions are my own.

    1. So many! Mostly I'm just ready for her to be here. We got a deep freezer this weekend, so I'm going to be making a lot of minimalist baker pot pies this week for post-baby, haha.

    1. hehe, at this point, my stomach has so much baby sitting on top of it that it was all I could eat. I put a pretty big dent in the leftover gnocchi. :)
