We are back for some more Goodfood cooking adventures! Let’s check it out!
with Fresh Chickpeas, Summer Vegetable & Mint Salad over Freekeh
Simple meals like this one always takes my heart. Its easy to put together and very straight forward in terms of dialing things back to the basic. Some carb or something like that, some easy veggies to make and then some type of meat. Its really a great time to just dial back to everyday things and eat a meal like this. We don’t eat a lot of fish but haddock does come around in these boxes fairly frequently and we almost always enjoy it a lot. This one was no exception.
Shiitake Mushroom Tempura
with Sugar Snap Peas & Snow Pea Tips Over Sushi Rice & Wafu Sauce
The way I thought about this one was a little different from how it turned out. On one hand, Sushi Rice and Wafu Sauce is a winner. However, I can’t figure out if we waited too long (which is weird since we cooked this box really quickly) but the snap peas and snow pea tips (which I ended up cooking) was a little older so cooking it actually made it very tough to eat. It is not the fault of the meal itself but of the bad timing in ingredients. To be honest, the tempura actually turned out the most disappointing. The tempura batter was a little disappointing and really thick and I wondered whether it was my issues with it since I don’t do meals with batter frequently. The batter is what made the mushrooms not so good. I actually would do this meal straight the way it is with or without wafu sauce.
Grilled Sirloin Steaks
with Lemon-Garlic Butter & Sesame Roasted Vegetables
This is a pretty interesting dish in general. The beef was really good, the spices worked well. The cauliflower and the potatoes were so easy to cook in the oven. Its a really nice and easy to sync up all the steps also making it very on point with the amount of time that they have allotted to make this meal. It does taste pretty good also. The butter works pretty well but I still like it as a simple meal with all these ingredients together.
Pork Meatballs in Thai Coconut Curry
with Kaffir, Lime & Mixed Vegetables over Jasmine Rice
Ever since we swapped over to Goodfood, we’ve actually purposefully avoided curry meals because of the previous meal subscription box experience. This meal looked so good and actually ours turned it fairly different from what it looked like but it still tastes absolutely fantastic. The meal that pleasantly surprised us for sure. The pork meatballs are delicious. The vegetable mix was awesome and the curry was just spicy and tasty enough. There’s so much to love about this one.
That’s it for this Goodfood recap!
