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.
Next: Hungryroot: Kohlrabi Noodles with Basil Zucchini White Bean Salad and Beet Pesto. I will let you know how it turns out.
