Sun Basket

Happy Monday Morning!

I hope you’re having a great start to your week! I wanted to share with you a recent meal subscription we decided to try. We had some time off and thought it would be fun to not just eat out, but also get back in the kitchen and make some tasty meals.

I did some research and found that Sun Basket was one we hadn’t tried and their meals looked delicious! We ordered recipes for 2 people for 3 times a week. For our first box we picked a Mongolian Beef and Spinach, Steak with Mushroom Pan Sauce and Brussels, and a Salmon and Eggplant dish.

We came home Monday to find our box waiting for us at the front door and were so excited to dive in. We decided to make the Mongolian Beef dish that night. This was a super quick and easy meal to make. It was flavorful-I loved the gingery, garlicy beef paired with the fluffy rice and wilted spinach. We added in the roasted broccoli for some extra nutrition. This was our favorite meal out of the box!

The very next day we decided to go ahead and try the Steak with Mushroom Pan Sauce. Again, it was a 20 minute meal-super quick and came together very easily with 2 people in the kitchen. Even if it was just one person in the kitchen this would be super quick.

We had never made a pan sauce and we ended up loving the mushroom one paired with the steak. Everything was cooked and seasoned so well! Loved this meal!

Our third was the salmon and eggplant dish. Sadly, I think our eggplant may have gone bad by this time, but it was not our favorite dish. Maybe it was because we like a good pan sear on our seafood? I’m not sure, but the flavors didn’t seem to go well together. Everyone has different tastes and so you may love it if you love saucier fish dishes, but for us not a winner…

Hubby said at the end of our cooking adventure that this may have been his favorite meal subscription box. I may have to agree! It had fun flavors and things we wouldn’t think about throwing together.

Have you tried Sun Basket? What did you think?

    Hey girl! So fun to see the meals you tried. I liked Sunbasket when we tried it too! It is definitely one of the healthier options for meal kits, but still very tasty. my only other favorite is Blue Apron- but its not quite as healthy. Thanks for sharing!!

    Ooh fun, Jess!! We had a whole experiment with a ton of meal sub boxes one time and Sun Basket definitely had the best tasting food in my opinion. The meals we got were too small portioned though & we were left hungry after every one lol. These 3 look pretty hearty though & 2 out of 3 ain’t bad at all!!
