Riverford got in touch to see if we’d like to try out one of their vegetarian recipe boxes so as the quickest way to my heart is food – I booked in a delivery and here’s what we think….
If you’re not familiar with the Riverford brand they’re a fully organic farm box delivery company, everything they sell is organic, you can choose from loads of different types of boxes, veg, fruit, meat and a variety of recipe boxes. You can even pick up nice little add on products like dairy and cupboard essentials. Everything is organic and delivered free to your door.
So here’s my 2 meals for 2 vegetarian recipe box… I’m always super excited to unpack food and find out what’s in the box! The box comes divided into little sections with everything you need to cook the recipe in little pots and bags – the chilled items come in insulated ice-packs and there’s instructions for how to store all the items.
My box had all the ingredients and instructions needed to cook up…
- Smoky Corn & Sweet Potato Quesadillas with Avocado Salsa & Soured Cream
- Aubergine & Red Pepper Ragout with Carrot Bulghur & Yogurt
And I honestly couldn’t wait to get cooking, I think it’s easy to get stuck in a little cooking rut, cooking the same or similar meals week in, week out and the recipe box shook up my menu plan a little and also reminded me of just how much I do like vegetarian dinners!
In terms of cooking the recipes and following the instruction cards I would have preferred if the ingredient list had next to each ingredient what to do with it – so chopped, diced etc, then it would have been quick to prep my ingredients then cook more easily rather than prepping as I cooked.
BUT… the food at the end was super tasty, honestly delicious, it looked good, it tasted good and it felt good eating it. All the produce included in the box was excellent quality. The only bits not included are salt and oil, which you should have in at home anyway.
Just how good does the aubergine and tomato ragout look?
And the quesadillas were unbelievably good!
I’ll be cooking both of these recipes again!
Can I see this type of box fitting in with my lifestyle? Yes I could, priced at just £24.95 this would come in probably cheaper than a take-out and a lot more nutritious, healthy and better quality. As a family we don’t always get to eat with the kids because of everyones busy schedules so these recipe boxes are a good little buy if I’m just cooking for me and the husband and would be so much better for us than greasy take-out.
