The chicken was tender and marinated in flavourful tikka sauce and curry paste. Meanwhile, adding carrots provides a texture contrast offering a slight crunch, while the spinach adds a pop of freshness and colour to the dish.

Thai-Style Turkey 'Pad Krapow' with Snow Peas from HelloFresh

It's Turkey Thursday! We had turkey for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. This evening, we prepared the Thai-Style Turkey 'Pad Krapow' with Snow Peas from our HelloFresh box.



Thai-Style Turkey 'Pad Krapow' with Snow Peas

HelloFresh Description:

"Pad krapow is a popular dish in the Thai street food scene. In our version, ground turkey is stir-fried with aromatic ingredients such as ginger, garlic, lime and chili pepper, then served over fluffy rice."


Thai-Style Turkey 'Pad Krapow' with Snow Peas


Thai cuisine is renowned for its complex and bold flavours, and this dish is no exception. The combination of ground turkey, fragrant ginger, and the distinct tanginess of lime creates a symphony that dances on your palate. The richness of hoisin sauce and soy sauce adds depth and a touch of umami, while the subtle sweetness of brown sugar balances the overall flavour profile. The chili pepper brings the right amount of heat to awaken your taste buds without overpowering the dish.


Thai-Style Turkey 'Pad Krapow' with Snow Peas

The use of soy sauce and fish sauce reminded me of Filipino cuisine. We use the same set of ingredients as our Southeast Asian neighbour, but the result is quite different.

Sweet Ginger Pork Stir-Fry from HelloFresh

Today, I learned a painful lesson about thoroughly washing my hands after touching red chili pepper. We prepared the Sweet Ginger Pork Stir-Fry with Peppers and Snow Peas from our HelloFresh box for dinner.

After cooking everything, I washed my hands, placed the food on the plate, and as we took our first bite, I felt a burning sensation in my right eye. It burns! I probably touched my eye without thinking, and whatever spicy extracts from the red chili pepper were still there. I rewashed my hands and washed my eyes with water. Afterwards, I placed a cold compress over my right eye. The sting was gone after about 5 minutes.

Anyway, time to discuss the food.



Sweet Ginger Pork Stir-Fry with Peppers and Snow Peas

HelloFresh Description:

"Ah, ginger and pork – the two go together like Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire. This lip-smacking pair will be swinging across your tastebuds tonight on a bed of pillowy jasmine rice and topped with a tasty hoisin-soy sauce. This dinner is sure to have you dancing!"


Sweet Ginger Pork Stir--Fry with Peppers and Snow Peas


First, I overcooked the rice, which was sticky instead of fluffy. It still did a fantastic job of soaking the umami-packed hoisin sauce and salty soy sauce. Judging by the smell alone, I thought the dish would be too salty, but the combination of ginger, garlic, and sesame oil balanced everything.

The tender-crispy snow peas and sweet bell peppers changed texture with their crunch. For a mildly spicy kick, the red chili pepper was terrific.

This is a delicious dish. I love it!

Beef and Bean Chili from HelloFresh

Happy first day of summer! Surprisingly, it's 14°C and cold. To help us warm up, hubby and I prepared the Beef and Bean Chili with Sour Cream and Cheddar from our HelloFresh box for lunch today.



Beef and Bean Chili with Sour Cream and Cheddar

HelloFresh Description:

"Good chili has well-seasoned meat, creamy beans and tender vegetables. Great chili, however, has all that and comes together in one pot in under an hour. This chili is one of the greats. And once you take a bite, we can guarantee you’ll agree!"


Beef and Bean Chili with Sour Cream and Cheddar


The ground beef provides rich and savoury flavour while the sweet bell pepper and green onion adds layers of subtle sweetness and a light crunch enhancing the texture of the dish. However, the real start of the show are the kidney beans. It's creamy and earthy that adds a velvety texture that pairs well with the beef.

To finish the dish, a dollop of sour cream is added, providing a cool and creamy contrast while the melted cheddar cheese on top adds a gooey texture.

I'll miss cooking lunch once I go back to the office and become an employee on a hybrid schedule.

HelloFresh Description:

"This hearty turkey bowl is full of wholesome goodness! We even snuck some spinach into the turkey mix for an added veggie boost. Pickled cucumbers and a sweet and spicy chipotle-honey sauce brighten each bite."


Cal Smart Chipotle-Honey Turkey Bowls with Green Onion Rice


Yummy! The basmati rice is the perfect fluffy and aromatic base for the dish, and adding thinly sliced green onions adds a subtle onion flavour and a fresh element. Meanwhile, the turkey is coated with chipotle-honey sauce and enchilada spice blend for a smoky, sweet, and savoury flavour. The bowl is topped with pickled cucumber to balance everything and provide acidity.

Meatless Monday: Tofu Bowls with Soba Noodles and Veggies from HelloFresh

Meatless Monday is possible with HelloFresh. I prepared the Carb Smart Tofu Bowls with Soba Noodles and Veggies for dinner from our HelloFresh box, which arrived this morning.

Below is the rest of our meatless Monday menu:



Carb Smart Tofu Bowls with Soba Noodles and Veggies

HelloFresh Description:

"This easy lower, carb vegetarian meal is filled with protein-packed tofu, wholesome veggies and swirls of soba noodles."

I love how the umami of the soy sauce mirin blend clings to the silky and smooth soba noodles. It's perfect! It was my first time frying tofu which maintained its delicate firm consistency but was a bit crispy on the outside. The edamame adds a slight crunch, while the Shanghai bok choy provides a mild bitterness.


Carb Smart Tofu Bowls with Soba Noodles and Veggies

On top of everything, I drizzled chili-garlic sauce, adding a sticky element coating the ingredients. Meanwhile, the sprinkling of green onions provided freshness to the dish.

HelloFresh description:

"This classic Southeast Asian-inspired combo of tender poultry, savoury rice and spicy sauce is full of flavour but surprisingly light! Don't forget to drizzle the spicy sauce over every bite. Calorie Smart is based on a per-serving calculation of the recipe's kilocalorie amount."


Cal Smart Hoisin-Ginger Turkey with Savoury Rice and Stir-Fried Veggies


I love this dish! The jasmine rice is fluffy and soft, which is the perfect vehicle for the saucy turkey. The ground meat is tender, but my favourite thing is the warmth provided by the ginger combined with the heat from the chilli-garlic sauce. To balance everything is the rich and sweet hoisin sauce. The stir-fried vegetables add freshness and nice crispiness to our dinner.

We have another HelloFresh box arriving on Monday and I can't wait!

Sesame-Teriyaki Turkey Bowls with Carrots and Edamame Rice from HelloFresh Canada

"This turkey teriyaki on pillowy jasmine rice hits all the right notes: salty, sweet, filling and as spicy as you like it! But the best part? It all comes together in just 25 minutes!"

I love the smell of soft and fluffy jasmine rice cooked in water mixed with butter and salt. The addition of edamame brings a surprising change in texture and a subtle sweet flavour.

On the other hand, the ground turkey came out tender and juicy coated in umami-packed soy sauce, nutty sesame oil, and rich teriyaki sauce. Lastly, the inclusion of carrots and onions adds a crunch and another subtle sweetness to the dish while the Shanghai bok choy offers a crisp and refreshing element.

A drizzle of Sriracha adds a touch of heat and tanginess adding another layer of flavour to the dish.

Creamy Asparagus and Spinach Orzotto from HelloFresh Canada

Happy Wednesday! It's creamy pasta day when we had leftovers of Mushroom Ravioli and Creamy Pesto Sauce for lunch and the Creamy Asparagus and Spinach Orzotto with Goat Cheese and Almonds for dinner from our HelloFresh box.


Creamy Asparagus and Spinach Orzotto with Goat Cheese and Almonds

What's Orzotto?

It's a dish that takes inspiration from the traditional Italian risotto, but uses orzo pasta instead of Arborio rice. Orzo, also known as risoni, is a small, rice-shaped pasta that resembles grains of barley, hence its name, which means "barley" in Italian. When cooked, orzo becomes tender and absorbs flavors beautifully, making it a wonderful alternative to rice in risotto-style dishes.



Creamy Asparagus and Spinach Orzotto with Goat Cheese and Almonds

HelloFresh description:

"This orzo is silky and flavourful, like a risotto. Topped with asparagus, creamy goat cheese and bright spinach, this orzotto is just what you've been looking for on a rainy spring day!"

Creamy Asparagus and Spinach Orzotto with Goat Cheese and Almonds


With its small, rice-like grains, the orzo provides a tender and slightly chewy texture that perfectly absorbs the luscious cream sauce. Fragrant garlic and sweet yellow onion infuse the dish with savoury undertones.


Creamy Asparagus and Spinach Orzotto with Goat Cheese and Almonds

The asparagus offers a delicate crunch and a subtly earthy taste, while the tender baby spinach leaves add a gentle hint of bitterness. These verdant vegetables create a harmonious contrast against the creamy backdrop of the dish.

The goat cheese is sprinkled throughout, adding a delightful tang and creaminess that complements the other ingredients. Finally, the sliced almonds provide a satisfying crunch, offering a textural contrast that completes the culinary journey.

Korean-Inspired Black Bean Noodles from HelloFresh Canada

I'm so grateful to my husband for helping me cook lunch that I told him I'll hand dinner by myself. I chose to prepare the Korean-Inspired Black Bean Noodles with Cucumber-Sesame Salad from our HelloFresh box.



Korean-Inspired Black Bean Noodles with Cucumber-Sesame Salad

HelloFresh description:

"This black bean sauce is super savoury, to the point of being addictive! Our black bean noodles are inspired by the cheeky late-night takeout you'd enjoy in Korea called jajangmyeon - but you can just call it delicious!"


Korean-Inspired Black Bean Noodles with Cucumber-Sesame Salad


The star of this dish is the irresistibly rich and savoury black bean sauce, beautifully coating the tender ramen noodles. Each strand of the sesame-coated noodles offers a satisfying chewiness, perfectly complemented by the umami depth of the black beans, zucchini, mushrooms, and aromatic garlic. The vegetarian oyster sauce adds a touch of brininess, while the red Thai chili provides a subtle kick of spice that lingers on the palate. Garnished with vibrant green onions, the dish offers a pop of freshness that balances the robust flavours.


Korean-Inspired Black Bean Noodles with Cucumber-Sesame Salad

The Cucumber-Sesame Salad adds a crisp and cooling element alongside the flavorful noodles. The mini cucumbers, thinly sliced, provide a refreshing crunch that pairs wonderfully with the tangy notes of rice vinegar and garlic. The green onions lend a subtle oniony bite, while the sesame seeds add a delightful nutty texture. This light and invigorating salad is the perfect counterpart to the rich black bean noodles, offering a palate-cleansing experience that keeps each bite exciting and balanced.

Garden Vegetable Soup from HelloFresh Canada

It's rare for me to cook during lunchtime (perks of working from home). However, the Carb Smart Garden Vegetable Soup with Cannellini Beans and Parmesan from our HelloFresh box only takes 25 minutes. My husband will do the chopping and slicing of vegetables. It's worth using 10 minutes of my lunch break to cook.


Carb Smart Garden Vegetable Soup with Cannellini Beans and Parmesan from HelloFresh Canada


Carb Smart Garden Vegetable Soup with Cannellini Beans and Parmesan

HelloFresh description:

"This comforting, wholesome soup is packed with veggies that offer a natural sweetness when cooked, while herbs from the sun-dried tomato pesto and torn basil heighten the flavour impact even more. Carb Smart is based on a per-serving calculation of the recipe's carbohydrate amount."



The base of the soup is cannellini beans which provide a creamy and velvety texture and a satisfying protein boost. Meanwhile, the vegetable stock powder adds rich and savoury flavours, complemented by the aromatic notes of garlic, carrots, celery, onions, and the umami-packed sun-dried tomato pesto.


Carb Smart Garden Vegetable Soup with Cannellini Beans and Parmesan from HelloFresh Canada

The medley of fresh garden vegetables, including zucchini and Roma tomato, adds a vibrant and refreshing element to the soup. The baby spinach leaves wilt gently into the soup, contributing a tender and delicate texture. The soup is garnished with shredded parmesan cheese, which melts into the hot broth, ensuring each spoonful has a rich and creamy finish. Lastly, I tear fresh basil leaves, adding a subtle hint of herbaceousness to the soup.

What to cook for dinner?

Meatless Monday: Mushroom Ravioli and Creamy Pesto Sauce from HelloFresh Canada

Our HelloFresh box got delivered this Monday morning. We started with oatmeal for breakfast and salad for lunch. For dinner, I prepared the Mushroom Ravioli and Creamy Pesto Sauce with Burst Tomatoes and Toasted Walnut from our HelloFresh box.


Mushroom Ravioli and Creamy Pesto Sauce with Burst Tomatoes and Toasted Walnuts

The creamy pesto provided velvety smoothness to each mushroom-filled al dente ravioli. While the combination of shredded parmesan cheese and cream cheese adds a rich and creamy element to the dish.

I didn't know that the dish required milk, luckily, we still have soy milk from the Riley Park Farmers Market and I used that which provided a subtle nutty flavour. It was also surprisingly creamy making the sauce have the right consistency.


Mushroom Ravioli and Creamy Pesto Sauce with Burst Tomatoes and Toasted Walnuts

There's also a burst of freshness and juicy sweetness from the baby tomatoes which helps balances the savoury and creamy components of the dish. Lastly, the toasted walnuts bring a delightful crunch adding an extra layer of texture to our dinner.

Moroccan-Style Shrimp from HelloFresh Canada

Happy Friday! For lunch today, we cooked the Smart Moroccan-Style Shrimp with Cilantro Yogurt Dressing and Couscous from our HelloFresh box.

HelloFresh Description:

"Get cozy with this delightfully fresh and warming dish!

It's the smart choice in more ways than one! Smart is based on a per serving calculation of the recipe's kilocalorie and carbohydrate amount."



The shrimp has a spicy kick thanks to the harissa spice blend. The heat complements the crunchy and sweet veggie combination of tender zucchini, juicy Roma tomatoes, and sweet bell peppers. Couscous is a beautiful side dish because it absorbs the broth's flavour quite nicely and is an excellent vehicle for the herby yogurt dressing, which adds a refreshing and tangy flavour. Lastly, I love the crunch from the crispy shallot topping! It's such a nice contrast to the tender, succulent shrimp and veggies.

Savoury Pork and Veggie Stir-Fry from HelloFresh

For dinner tonight, hubby and I prepared the Savoury Pork and Veggie Stir-Fry with Cashews and Garlic Rice from our HelloFresh box.



Savoury Pork and Veggie Stir-Fry with Cashews and Garlic Rice

HelloFresh Description:

"For those who don't shy away from spice, this pork stir-fry packs a flavour punch and plenty of heat thanks to our Szechuan-style sauce! Toasted cashews finish off this dish for a culinary home run!"


Savoury Pork and Veggie Stir-Fry with Cashews and Garlic Rice from HelloFresh


The Savoury Pork and Veggie Stir-Fry with Cashews and Garlic Rice is a yummy and hearty dish that perfectly balances sweet and spicy flavours. The lean ground pork is seasoned with soy sauce and Szechuan sauce, which gives it a bold and savoury taste. Meanwhile, the sweet bell peppers and zucchini add a mild sweetness to the dish. Lastly, the cashews offer a nutty flavour and satisfying crunch that complements the tender pork perfectly.


A bowl of Savoury Pork and Veggie Stir-Fry with Cashews and Garlic Rice from HelloFresh

The garlic rice is a wonderful side dish to stir-fry. It offers a subtle garlic flavour that enhances the overall dish. In addition, the chicken broth concentrate adds depth and richness to the rice.

This dish is a beautiful combination of savoury, sweet, and spicy flavours, making it an excellent choice for those who love bold and flavorful dishes. The cashews and vegetables add a great texture to the plate, while the garlic rice perfectly complements the stir-fry.

However, the buttery garlic rice and fatty pork made the whole dish too oily for my liking. It was delicious, like Chinese take-out, but my lips were covered with oil afterwards. Something sour or tangy will make the dish better.
