- Apricot Glazed Turkey with Beets and Orzo dish
- Stuffed Squash with Cherry Balsamic Reduction
- Zucchini Parmigiana
The products inside my package were beautifully separated which I completely loved and each individually packed according to the recipe it was designed for in separate baggies. This was a wonderfully, unexpected part of the experience. However, because the meat wasn’t properly shipped within the case, all the food had a sticky texture with an odd, off smell to them. This didn’t affect the food inside the bags only the items the outer bags themselves and left me with a unappealing feeling in the pit of my stomach.
The next dish I made was the Stuffed Squash with the Cherry Balsamic Reduction. We are squash lovers so this was a great one for us. I did not use the meat that was sent with the Hello Fresh box because it’s the package that I believe may have been leaking and was not cold when I received it. I wasn’t willing to risk it so I did substitute Venison which we already had in our freezer into this dish. I also substituted a small yellow onion for the Shallot that wasn’t usable in my package. Both worked wonderfully in our dish. The Basmati rice took a bit of getting used to but it’s something we would try again and I was not a fan of the cherries but the kids liked them. With some tweaking, this is a meal we would gladly have again.
