HelloFresh Veggie Box Review

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links.

I recently received a discount code to try out HelloFresh and was excited to try out this service. HelloFresh “delivers delicious and healthy recipes with all the pre-measured ingredients to your door each week.” There are two type of boxes to choose – Classic Box and Veggie Box. The Classic Box includes meat and is a little more expensive than just the Veggie Box. I opted for the Veggie Box, because I’m always looking for vegetarian entrees and other side dishes. After you select the type of box, you can select boxes for either 2 or 4 people. I went with the 3 meals, 2 people box. It was the perfect size for my husband with enough leftover for the kids to nibble at.

When I received my first box, I was pleasantly surprised. It came packaged with frozen water bottles to keep the produce cool, my second box came with reusable freezer bags. Each meal is packaged together in a bag and includes everything you need! My one meal came with the cutest little bottle of balsamic vinegar.

My box came with these three recipes:

Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Crispy Spiced Chickpeas – We loved this! The hummus dressing was perfect and I loved the crunch of the chickpeas. It was unique and something I would never had put together before.

Honey-Roasted Squash with Warm Mushroom & Quinoa Salad – This was another winner. I made it as a side dish for grilled chicken breasts. You can’t go wrong with roasted squash! I really enjoyed the mushroom and quinoa salad, it was a new way for me to use quinoa. My husband had it as leftovers the next day and he really enjoyed it as a cold salad.

Eggplant & Sun-dried Tomato Pasta – I’m not a fan of eggplant, so I skipped this meal, but made it for the rest of the family. They liked it but wasn’t in love with it like the other two dishes.

Overall, I was really pleased with the boxes I purchased and will use the service occasionally. Now that summer is almost here, I’ll be using the recipe library for inspiration for new meals to make!
