I had heard about these fresh ingredients delivery boxes and had fancied trying one for ages. So when Tornado contacted me and offered me one to try I was really excited.
My children are fussy eaters and I often end up eating their boring children’s food, so it was really nice to have 2 days this week where we had “adult” food. But more importantly the recipes didn’t need loads of prep time and weren’t so complicated that I couldn’t help the kids with their homework while I cooked.
The box was delivered to my “safe place” because I wasn’t home, they carefully wrap the cold items with freezer packs and sheeps wool to keep it cold for several hours if you are out at the time of delivery:
The sheeps wool is a bit stinky, but it is environmentally friendly.
The selection of recipes to choose from is not huge (22 recipes) but there is a nice selection and changes frequently. I chose the Mushroom Dal with Coriander Chutney and Lemon Pepper Chicken with Tosemary Potatoes, but it was difficult making the decision there were 4 or 5 top contenders.
Neither recipe took over 45 minutes to make and both were surprisingly easy, my husband even made the Lemon Pepper Chicken while I was out, so it must be easy.
Both meals were delicious! The curry had lots of flavour and was juicy enough to have with rice and Naan Bread and the lemon chicken was amazingly flavoursome. They were really impressive recipes.
I was surprised how well priced they were as well, the 2 person box (with ingredients for 2 recipes) is just £27.49, which works out as £6.87 per serving, or it works out cheaper per serving if you increase it to 3 or 4 recipes, and even cheaper per serving if you use the family box (2 adults, 2/3 children) but personally my children are not adventurous enough to try these recipes.
