Today I'm sharing my final experience with the fresh produce I was sent by Hello Fresh last week. If you haven't read the posts, the introduction to Hello Fresh Classic Box can be found here.

Such a delicious and simple dish! I did overdo it with the Tabasco but luckily everyone in my house including my grandma loves spicy food so I didn't do wrong with that one!
I will say that I think this recipe is enough for 3 people as the portions are quite big and obviously rice is very filling anyway!
I've had fun trying out these recipes from Hello Fresh, overall I'm very happy with what the company are achieving. My family loved the idea of the food box as an exciting alternative to regular food shopping and I would very happily get another box from them in future if cooking for friends or family!
