Yesterday I was happy to receive my first Hello Fresh box. Hello Fresh is a new exciting food box delivery service which brings healthy food and recipes to your door. You can say goodbye to fast food and unhealthy ready meals and say hello to delicious home cooked food using only the best naturally sources ingredients and best of all you don’t have to treck around supermarkets looking for foods as its all packed and sent to you.
The way it works is that Hello Fresh will create delicious recipes which change weekly. You choose the box you want (meat/fish or veg option) and for how many people / how many days. The box is then packed for you with all the ingredients you need and delivered free with recipe cards for you to cook delicious meals.
I was sent my box for review and was very surprised at the amount of lovely things inside. It was packed full of food , meat and fish and lots of fresh vegetables, cheeses, creme fresh, sauces etc.
The first recipe I decided to make was Nutrition Packed Nachos with Citrus Sour Cream
I was provided with a recipe card and the steps were very easy to follow.
All the ingredients needed were in the box- tin of sweet corn, tomato purée, red onion, tin tomatoes? Chicken breast, garlic, tortillas, avocado, red pepper, cheese, lime, sour cream and coriander.
The recipe card showed me exactly what to do – starting by chopping up onions, pepper, garlic and grating cheese, dicing the chicken and frying it , frying the chopped vegetables and adding chicken, sweet corn and tinned tomatoes.
I then poured the mixture over a layer of tortillas and baked together for ten mins.
While this was baking I mashed up the avocado and mixed with lime juice and coriander ready to put over the baked nacho mixture with a pouring of sour cream and red raw pepper.
