Hello Fresh and a Stir Fry and Rice Twist

Not long ago, I signed-up with Hello Fresh to receive recipes and fresh vegetarian meal options. The service has been great so far and I am able to reduce the amount of time I usually spend meal planning. This week we received our first meals and the stir fry and rice was my favorite. They called the recipe Vegetarian Bibimbap which at first threw me for a loop, but after looking at the ingredients I realized my family and I were in for a treat.

Why did I join Hello Fresh?

You see, cooking isn’t my favorite home chore, but I love to eat and create so with the guidance from Hello Fresh’s meals, my family and I are enjoying new foods. The best part about hello Fresh is that I don’t have to go to the grocery store as often and the next best things is that they teamed up with Jamie Oliver to provide dishes from his creative repertoire.

How long have you used the food delivery service?

Currently, I’m still on my first week of meals, but I wanted to share what I made this week. If you want to try Hello Fresh, I am happy to share my referral code with you. Use 9H65KY and get $40 off your first box. I love that their meals also come with the nutrition facts.

Meal time has become an exciting family adventure for us. The vegetarian meals have lots of vegetables to chop, so I get my husband and kids involved too.  If you like my adaptation of stir fry and rice, definitely give their meals a try. Stir fry is a vegetarian staple, but the hello fresh gave the meal a whole new life.

Are the meals new ideas?

Some of the recipes are meals that I have not tried before, but it has always been food that I want to eat. We love vegetables so taking food that we already love and coming up with new ideas to mix different herbs and spices together has been delightful.

Pictured above is my typical stir fry and vegetable recipe with ginger sauce and below is the one I made this week from the Hello Fresh recipe. the ginger sauce is made the same but I love their recommendation to use a potato peeler to slice the carrots and zucchini.

Which meal has been your favorite so far?

The stir fry recipe was one that everyone in my household loved. They ate it up and we didn’t have any leftovers. The garlic and ginger were spicy for my young kids, so I used a little less than recommended by the original recipe.
