Gousto Recipe Box Review

I love cooking and trying new dishes, so services like Gousto* are ideal for me, when I am stuck in a rut in the kitchen. You basically go to their website, pick from a selection of 10 dishes (they change weekly) and wait for all the ingredients and recipes to be delivered to your door. 

There are always veggie dishes available and that's the option I picked. As an ex vegetarian, I eat like a veggie 90% of the time. I love fish, seafood and chicken as well, but I am trying to get my hubby to eat more veg, so I need more veggie dishes on our menu.  The box costs £34.99 (with free delivery), but you can get £25 off your first box with my code: SANDR44172 , making it an absolute bargain.


I got the box of 3 meals for 2, but there is plenty for 3 people, with the sweet potato crumble being enough for 4 in my opinion. The three dishes I cooked were: Tofu Ramen, Parsnip Risotto and Sweet Potato Crumble. All absolutely delicious and easy to make. 

The recipes are easy to follow and the cards include step by step instructions with photos. Perfect. You can keep the cards for future use as well, because believe me when I say that you will definitely crave those dishes again! I personally can't stop thinking about the amazing parsnip risotto and I am planning to make it again next week.

Ingredients for the meals are fresh, organic and sourced locally, if possible. Gousto work with Soil Association certified organic suppliers to ensure the best quality, so you don't have to worry about any dangerous chemicals in your food.

The parsnip risotto was AMAZING! I will be making it again for sure. The parsnip crisps with cumin and rosemary and balsamic vinegar drizzled on top add a nice twist to a simple dish.

Tofu ramen was delicious too. I can't believe how much flavour Star Anise adds to the dish!

Overall, I am really impressed with the box. I love the idea and the meals are easy to make, nutritious and super yummy! If you need inspiration in the kitchen or you simply don't have time to look for recipes and shop for ingredients, give Gousto a go.
