This is a review of a food subscription box called Sun Basket. Hubby and I gave two recipes five out five stars and one recipe four stars. It was a scrumptious week of recipes! Calories ranged from 680 to 750 and preparation time indicated was twenty-five to forty minutes. Actual preparation time was thirty-five to fifty-five minutes. As usual all of the ingredients arrived in great shape.
Sole with Cara Cara Oranges, Fennel & Purple Sweet Potatoes
I was really looking forward to this recipe because I love sole and I can't find it locally. We're so happy that they send wild caught fish rather than farm raised, it's so much healthier. We gave this recipe four out of five stars because they substituted Naval Oranges for Cara Cara Oranges. Cara Cara Oranges are so much tastier. Also, we felt there were too many black olives. The purple sweet potatoes are so delicious. Almond meal is a healthy alternative to regular flour to coat the sole and it's very tasty. The sauce made with lemon zest, parsley, capers and butter was delicious. This recipe has 720 calories and it's gluten free and Paleo. It took Hubby fifty-five minutes to prepare and the recipe states thirty-five. It was a healthy portion.
Burmese Chicken Aloo with Japanese Sweet Potato
Wow, we fell in love with this dish! This dish uses onion, Japanese sweet potato, cilantro, chicken thighs, lemongrass paste, Marash chile flakes, red miso paste, tomatoes, cloves, cinnamon stick and coconut milk. Seems like a strange combination of ingredients yet they are perfect together. I've been wanting to try a Japanese sweet potato for quite some time since they don't sell them locally. It is so sweet just like dessert, scrumptious! It's purple on the outside and cream on the inside. It's now my favorite type of sweet potato! I only wish I could purchase them locally! The recipe indicated preparation time to be thirty to forty minutes and it took Hubby thirty-five minutes. It has only 680 calories yet it is very filling. I could have saved some for lunch the next day, but it was so delicious I didn't. It's gluten free and Paleo. If they repeat this dish, I'll be ordering it again!
Senegalese Chicken & Peanut Stew with Broken Rice
This one is comfort food for sure, so delicious! We gave it five out of five stars. We had never had broken rice before and we loved it, it's softer and more comforting than regular rice. The chicken thighs were so most and tender and the sauce was so tasty that Hubby wanted to lick the plate. The lime juice was a surprisingly tasty addition. The photo above only shows some of the food, it wouldn't all fit on the plate. It was a huge and filling portion. It was an easy recipe just time consuming. It took fifty-five minutes to prepare while the recipe stated forty minutes. For such a large portion of food it's surprisingly low in calories, 750, and it's a gluten free recipe.
