Ingredients


This is a review of a weekly meal kit subscription box called Sun Basket. This is our 13th delivery and we gave one recipe five out of five stars and two recipes four stars. Calories ranged from 640 to 710 and preparation time indicated on the recipe cards ranged from thirty to forty minutes. Actual preparation time was forty to fifty-five minutes. All three recipes are gluten free and two out of the three are paleo.

Pacific Cod with Lemongrass & Broken Rice

Hubby gave this recipe four out of five stars and I gave it three. There was so much rice I couldn't eat it all and it was a large portion of cod. We felt it needed more bok choy. We would have preferred it to be spicier, it needed more garam masala, cilantro, lime and lemongrass paste. I think the cilantro should have been chopped. It was a tasty meal, I just thought a few changes would make it perfect. This one has 710 calories and it took Hubby forty minutes to prepare. It's a paleo and gluten free recipe.

Seared Pork with Figs & Quinoa Dried Cherry Salad

Hubby gave this one five out of five stars and I gave it four stars. The dried cherries, rainbow quinoa, radicchio, pistachios, dried fig and fresh rosemary were so scrumptious. If you've never had radicchio before you must try it. One of my favorite recipes is simply made with radicchio, curry powder, mayo and canned tuna. So delicious, especially if you let the mixture cure in the refrigerator for a couple of hours, so that the curry mixes with the rest of the ingredients. We cooked this recipe six days after we received it and everything was still fresh, they recommend using ingredients within five days. It was a generous and filling portion that is paleo and gluten free. It had 710 calories and it took Hubby fifty-two minutes to prepare. 

Steaks with Satsuma Escarole Salad & Chimichurri

I gave this recipe four out of five stars and Hubby gave it three stars. The Chimichurri seasoning blend consisting of cumin, sweet smoked paprika and granulated garlic was so delicious! The salad dressing base made with maple syrup, cinnamon, coriander and sherry vinegar was sweetly scrumptious like candy! It was a healthy portion and it's a paleo and gluten free recipe with only 640 calories. It took Hubby fifty-five minutes to prepare.

It was another enjoyable week of recipes which we have come to expect from Sun Basket since they are our favorite.
