One of the things we hear time and time again from our Family Box customers, is how much HelloFresh recipes work for parents and kids. So, if you’re not a HelloFresh customer, but you’ve got fussy kids, here are some nutritious, delicious child friendly recipes. They’re all ready in 40 minutes maximum.
Drum roll maestro if you please…! This week we wanted to get you cooking with tarragon. Tarragon is one of what the French call the ‘fines herbes’ and you might be used to tasting it in Béarnaise sauce.
We’re convinced that if you can eat a meal with only a fork, or even better simply off a stick then it’s bound to be tasty. Think about it: spaghetti bolognese, shepherds pie and every single one of those delicious ‘sticky’ street food morsels you’ve had whilst on holiday. Put it to the text with your kids
Bucatini Amatriciana is an Italian classic! Historically, the pope has chosen his best chefs from the Amatrice region to cook it for him – so you’re in for a treat! The sauce is made with sweet ripe tomatoes and a hint of chilli to make it sumptuous. What could be more Italian than a hint of olive and pancetta to liven up the party? Enjoy!
We inherited this tasty little number from an Australian friend of ours. He explained the whole recipe in fantastic detail so that we’d be able to recreate it in our own kitchen. The only thing he didn’t explain was why he decided to call it Thor’s Thunder Chicken.
We bet you’re wondering what that strange coral like vegetable is? Well that folks is our veggie of the month … Romanesco! This fascinating veggie is a cross between broccoli and cauliflower and if you can bring yourself to chop it up (we found it hard to stop admiring it), it goes beautifully in André’s creamy bacon and chicken sauce, enjoy!
This creamy coconut rice is (in our humble opinion), pretty amazing. Teamed with some delicious shawarma spiced chicken drumsticks and roasted corn on the cob, it’s going to be a sensational (but slightly messy!) dinner … Enjoy!
Food can be an amazing leveller. This zingy little number is inspired by a street food stall in Bangkok, where people from all walks of life queue down the street to get their dinner. Whether it’s the bus driver or the suited businesswoman, the child or the grandparent everyone gets in line for a bowl and chows down on fold up chairs.
Roast chicken is possibly one of the most comforting meals of all time and down at the fresh farm, these roulades are a firm favourite. All the ingredients and deliciousness of a roast but with a few unexpected twists. We can’t get enough of this recipe and we hope you enjoy our HelloFresh version of a Sunday classic as much as us!
The wonderfully crazy molecular gastronomists of the world like Ferran Adria and Heston Blumenthal believe that food shouldn’t just be experienced through the sense of taste. For them it’s an all immersive experience. At Heston’s restaurant you even plug earphones into a shell to listen to the sound of the sea whilst you eat!
Sometimes the most simple ingredients come together to create something absolutely wonderful, which is what happened here when chef Victoria decided to make this dish. She hit the comfort food nail on the head with this light, vibrant broth and a nice helping of smooth warming mash.
Sometimes, the kids just want something simple for dinner – which suits mum and dad. Try our delicious ppea and courgette pasta. It’s a great way to get your kids eating their greens without them even noticing.
