Last week, Nash and I tried out Chef’s Plate with 3 meals for two people. The ingredients came separately packaged in paper bags with the meats under ice packs which kept it all fresh until I came home from work.
Nash made 2/3 of the meals because I started working a different schedule and ending late. The first was a Lemon & Pesto Chicken Pappardelle pasta.
While he didn’t finely chop the spices, the pasta was super flavourful and delicious. I loved the textural addition of seeds. Who knew that making your own pesto could be this simple? I’m definitely keeping this recipe in mind for future pasta-making.
The second meal he made was a Shaoxing-style steak with a lot of Asian flavours. It was served with flavourful sweet potatoes, snap peas and green beans.
This was a tiny bit more complicated than the first, but our meat turned out perfectly cooked!
On my day off, I decided to do the final package. It was a blackened basa. I like that it came with veggies in a variety of colours.
For the first time, my fish was perfectly cooked and not stuck to the pan. The millet salad felt super healthy but was filling and the lime, mango and honey a nice sweetness against the paprika in the fish.
I enjoyed all my Chef’s Plate selections that week and hope to use it occasionally on lazy weeks. It’s fun and gives you a new arsenal of recipe ideas for the future. Sometimes you want to cook new things, but it’s much easier if you don’t have to pick up the groceries too!
