of incentives for trying the program, including new customer
discounts and free meals to get started.
The first of our two meals this past week was Hello Fresh's
Tex-Mex Beef & Poblano Enchiladas. In addition to the
perfectly apportioned ingredients, every meal is accompanied
by a large, easy to read recipe card which walks you through
each step of preparing the meal, and even includes tricks of
the trade and further explanations of what you're cooking
and pro tips to improve your skills in the kitchen generally.
The enchilada recipe suggested a 5-minute prep time, and a
40-minute cook time, which was just about right. Remember,
this isn't a frozen meal you heat up - Hello Fresh is doing the
shopping and you are doing the cooking. One interesting part
of this Mexican meal was making our own pico de gallo from
scratch. A simple combination of freshly-diced tomatoes and
scallions takes on a life of its own with a little fresh squeezed
lime, a drizzle of oil and a pinch of salt and pepper - fresher
and tastier than anything you'll find pre-made in a can at the
store. Poblano pepper added heat to the ground beef, along
with a Tex-Mex paste prepared by Hello Fresh and included
with separate spices in the same kit. Topped with shredded
cheese and the lime crema we also prepared from scratch, the
enchiladas weren't too spicy, but were definitely an easy to
prepare and satisfying meal. For two servings, the cost of the
ingredients was approximately $11 per serving plus shipping.
Cleanup involved a few more bowls than usual from the meal
prep, but we left SiriusXM Águila radio on in the kitchen and
powered through.
Our second Hello Fresh meal of the week was from the
slightly more expensive " gourmet " menu list - Venetian
Scallop Spaghetti. The feature of this meal was definitely the
scallops, and like everything else in the package, they were
delivered fresh and vacuum-sealed. The 35-minute prep time
was slightly quicker than the enchiladas, and there were a few
less bowls and utensils involved. Aside from the scallops, the
feature of this meal was making our own tomato sauce using
grape tomatoes, cooked until bursting, and then adding oil,
garlic and 2 Tablespoons of Hello Fresh garlic herb butter.
Once cooked, crème fraîche is added to the simmer to create
the " creamy burst " sauce for the dish. Joined with the spaghetti
and topped with chives, parsley and grated Parmesan cheese,
we agreed the end result was as good if not better than dining
out. The " gourmet " price was slightly higher per serving than
the enchiladas from Hello Fresh's standard menu, but it really
was delicious. Too bad we still had to do the dishes.
If you have yet to try a meal kit program, right now is the
perfect time. They are a great way to liven up your weekly
home cooking, and absolutely give you the chance to try new,
tasty recipes you otherwise might shy away from. There is no
doubt that our busy lives are aided by the delivery of fresh,
perfectly portioned ingredients right to our front door. Even
better, when you cook from a program like Hello Fresh, you are
automatically honing your kitchen skills generally, as well. We
can't wait to get back to grabbing dinner out with friends; but
for now, Hello Fresh keeps things new and fun at home.
