I noticed quite a few of my friends had been testing out this thing called Chefs Plate. I started to have some serious FOMO and decided I better test it out for myself.
The low down is you pick from their original recipes, they deliver exactly what you need for the meal and you create the dinner following their simple steps.
As a Mom with a busy and lets be honest whiny toddler, going to the grocery store or meal planning does not come easy. This sounded like a dream come true!
All the ingredients came in a cute little cooler box with the frozen goodies on the bottom (with ice packs) and the other goodies in corresponding bags. You don't have to be home when they deliver it which is nice.
Each meal comes with an easy to follow recipe card including prep time, cook time & the rundown on the meal. The first one I tried was the Avocado & Black Bean Tostadas.
Everything comes measured out to the right proportion sizes already, which is awesome. You just have to wash, cut and prep the ingredients. Oh and cook them, haha!
These Avocado & Black Bean Tostadas were seriously delicious. I would have never thought of making something like this, and they would be perfect for any vegetarian in your life too! It was super easy and didn't take very long to make at all!
Next up was the Seared Salmon with Caesar salad. Now I was a little more nervous about this one because I always overcook my salmon and it ends up disgusting. I usually cook mine in the oven but this one you cook in a pan. I followed the directions exactly as it suggested.
It was amazing, it worked so well! This salmon was absolutely delicious! I was so proud of myself and felt so fancy! Haha! I served it to my Dad who is a pro at cooking & catching salmon, and he even said that it was delicious!
One tip I would suggest is if you pick something with an Avocado or something similar, maybe just grab an extra one from the grocery store just in case. Avocados are so hard to know if they are overripe or not ripe, so it would be good to have a back up. Plus I just love me some avocado, so a little extra was fine by me!
