We chose the carnivore family plan (2 dinners a week for a family of 4). Watch our unboxing video to see what it is like to get Green Chef delivered to your door.
We were sent all of the ingredients with the recipe cards to make lemon-chive salmon with dill-roasted red potatoes and mixed green salad and Italian meatballs and orzo. The ingredients are color coded to match the recipe card they coordinate with. (I didn't realize this until writing this post, but it sure does make it easy.)
Both meals were fantastic and we were able to make them in under 40 minutes. Our absolute favorite meal was the lemon-chive salmon (pictured above) It was incredible! The potatoes were perfectly cooked and seasoned, the salad was delicious plus it was fun using ingredients we don't normally use, and the salmon was so tender and flavorful. Luckily our kids ate dinner at church the night we made this because we finished it all ourselves. This meal is amazing and I would order it again, but not to feed a family of four. I think it is best proportioned to feed two to three people.
The second meal we tried was the Italian meatballs and orzo made with cremini mushrooms, lacinato kale, tomato sauce, and fresh herbs. This meal was really good too and expanded our horizons a bit. I have never cooked with kale and was hesitant to do so, but did so that I could follow the recipe exactly and share this experience with you honestly. To our surprise we didn't notice any strong flavors from the kale. It blended in nicely with the recipe which was quite tasty. I thought this recipe was a little more involved than the salmon, but was still fairly quick to prepare. It took right around 40 minutes. The meatballs were even better the next day as leftovers and did make enough to feed a family of four.
Green Chef meal kit delivery service is an easy way to simplify making healthy meals at home. Recipes and all of the ingredients are sent directly to your door. I love trying new things so making recipes I have never made before was a lot of fun. My husband helped make the meatballs and we enjoyed our time cooking together. One of my favorite things about the meal kits is all of the fresh produce and herbs. I don't usually cook with fresh herbs, but feel inspired to use them more often. I just planted some basil and it is already about two inches high. If you want an easy way to eat healthier and expand your culinary horizons, give Green Chef a try.
