Ive seen the adverts for these type of boxes before and alway thought they looked like a great idea so when I was offered a free Gousto box I was very excited d to give it a go. Because I dread choosing what to cook for tea, and making sure I have everything, we just seem to have the same thing every week.
So when I was faced with a website of mouth watering recipes the task seemed a lot easier!
The website was really easy to use and I had the choice of a great variety of meals. I liked the fact that the website showed the length of time each recipe took to cook, because sometimes we just want a quick tea! I loved the packaging and the fact that it was recyable. I thought the way they used sheeps wool to keep the food cool was genious!
As I sorted through the ingredients I was really pleased to see that the meat was British and all the other ingredients looked really fresh.
I choose two meals ‘posh burger and chips’ and ‘lamb biryiani’ both these meals were for two people.
All the ingredients were measured out exactly so there is no waste which is great!
Lamb biryiani ingredients and a free wooden spoon!!
When I first saw the ingredients I thought that the portions would be really small, but actually it was quite enough!
The recipes were really simple and easy to follow, and i liked that the recipe cards have holes in them to be able to put them in a ring binder and use them another day.
I’d definitely order this again, I ordered the meals for 2 this time because I thought it would be nice for me and my husband to have a nice meal once the boys were asleep. It was lovely because we both got in the kitchen with a glass of wine and cooked together, we haven’t done that in a long time because one of us is usually entertaining at least one of the boys!
