Here is the last meal review for my first subscription box of Hungryroot that I received as a gift from one of my sons – Ginger Tahini Uba Noodles with Broccoli Rice and Thai Peanut Sauce.

Received in the Hungryroot Box : Ginger Tahini Uba Noodles, Thai Peanut Sauce and Broccoli Rice.

I added some brown rice and some mushrooms to bulk up the meal. I also used some of my All-Purpose Seasoning to punch up the flavor. I had to make Peanut Sauce because I had used all of the sauce in the Lemongrass Tofu Nuggets Stir-fry with Thai Peanut Sauce. Plus, we liked my Peanut Sauce better.

Like the other meals that I reviewed, this one was very easy and fast to assemble.

I added All-Purpose Seasoning and Chopped frozen spinach. Next time I would use fresh spinach.

This meal came together very quickly, about 15 minutes.

I liked the meal, however, my husband not so much. It could have been the spinach. My All-Purpose Seasoning added a much needed boost of flavor. The Beet Pesto turned the Kohlrabi Noodles slightly pink.

Overall, I liked the meal, but I would definitely play with the additional ingredients. It was easy to assemble and took very little time to put together.

Hungryroot: Lemongrass Tofu Nuggets Stir-fry with Thai Peanut Sauce

I received a meal box from Hungryroot for my birthday from one of my sons. In the box were 3 meals and 2 desserts. I thought I would share our meals with you, letting you know our thoughts, the changes we made and how they turned out.

One feature I really appreciated about the Hungryroot Subscription box was that I was able to specify what kind of foods I wanted. For instance, I chose vegan gluten free, which was perfect for me. Also, you are able to adjust how often you would like to receive certain ingredients: often, sometimes, or never.

Our subscription box was classified as small. It was received in good shape and all the ingredients were cold and unharmed.

The first meal I made was the Lemongrass Tofu Nuggets Stir-fry with Thai Peanut Sauce. This meals came with 3 ingredients: Hungryroot Thai Peanut Sauce, Hungryroot Braised Lemongrass Tofu Nuggets, and Hungryroot Seven Veggie Stir-Fry.

To be honest, this was not enough for 2 people. I bulked it up with a bag of frozen broccoli and 2 cakes of brown rice noodles. By adding these extra ingredients I had enough for both of us and a little leftover for one of us for lunch the next day.

There was minimal prep work to do. The meal came together rather quickly even with the additional ingredients I added to complete the meal.

We enjoyed the flavors. My husband liked the Hungryroot Thai Peanut Sauce, but he likes my Peanut Sauce better. I would agree with him on this. We both liked the Hungryroot Braised Lemongrass Tofu Nuggets.

The recipe called for oil to brown the tofu and cook the stir-fry veggies. I skipped that and used water. They came out perfect, so there is no need to use oil.

Overall, we enjoyed the meal. You definitely need to supplement ingredients if you want this meal for more than one person.
