I’m continuing my Vegan kick (aka anti-dairy), trying to eat vegan 5 days out of the week. I came across Green Chef and saw that they had a vegan option. Almost all of their ingredients are Organic (unless label otherwise) which is awesome! I have had 2 weeks of it and I am very pleased! However, I do feel like some of the meals are small. Initially I had planned to feed myself and my boyfriend but he can eat alot! So I’ve been using what’s left or the 2nd serving as a meal for later in the week or for lunch one day.
I follow the directions spot on, only adding garlic powder to everything, because why not 🙂
The first meal was the smallest amount of food in my opinion (or maybe I’m just REALLY hungry at dinner time!) – Broccoli Penne Alfredo.
It comes with a picture of what it should look like, list of the ingredients, then instructions on the back. The ingredients are labeled with a matching color, this color is also on the ingredients/instruction sheet. VERY easy to follow. I was disappointed at the amount of pasta they gave. No way that would feed myself AND my boyfriend. SO I did add some gluten free pasta (2 hand fulls) I had already at home. There was enough sauce even with the addition of the extra pasta.

It did taste really good! I was bummed that they gave you the Vegan Alfredo already pre-made in a jar. It was something I wanted to try my hand at. I emailed their customer service and they got back to me in a day, letting me know they actually had the sauce listed on their blog! So it will be something I try myself in the future, but now I know I actually like the taste.
The 2nd Meal was my absolute favorite, and I will make this again! – Tahini Dill Sweet Potato Bowl
Because they gave me a large sweet potato, I ended up getting a total of about 3 meals from it. I rationed the Couscous and veggies appropriately. Also, I added Smoked Paprika to the sweet potatoes before I baked them. It was a great addition!
The last meal was Cuban Fried Quinoa with Tempeh. This was the first time I have ever tried Tempeh, it was excellent in this dish! This was also probably the most filling of the 3 meals…lots of protein with the black beans, quinoa and tempeh.
Over all, I will continue trying Green Chef for a a few more weeks or months! I would like to try their non-vegan menu items at some point too. I believe it’s pretty easy to make a menu switch. Everything is managed online. It’s also easy to skip a week, I’ve already needed to do that because of some traveling I will be doing!
