Cooking At Home Made Easy With Gousto!*

Thursday, 11 May 2017

Do you ever wish you could recreate some of your favourite recipes at home but just don’t have the time?! Worry that all the ingredients will go off before you have the time to make said recipe? Don’t quite know where to begin, well panic no more and let me take all the stress and worry away and introduce you to Gousto, the recipe box people.

Gousto deliver food boxes direct to your house or office with perfectly portioned ingredients and an easy to follow recipe card, making cooking for yourself and your family easier than ever before.

All you need to do is go to the Gousto website, sign up and check the recipes….I am not going to lie to you here, this is the toughest bit! The recipes on Gousto all look delicous… seriously, mouth-wateringly, hunger inducingly so… may want to try them all at once but alas, you can only choose from meals for 2 or 4 people. But don’t be put off if you have an odd number of people, it is easy to bulk out any recipe with extra vegetables or rice! Some of them easily stretch and even make left-overs! (Perfect for office lunches!)

The recipes I chose were Bacon and Courgette One Pot Pasta and Posh Open Burger 
With Rosemary Chips. They both sounded and looked delicious on the website so I couldn’t say no really! I can confirm that they were both as good as they looked! The recipe cards were easy to follow, with pictures of each stage - which in my opinion are better than having to read words and getting all confused when you’re tired..!

The best thing about these Gousto recipes is that when it says 30 minutes, it actually means 30 minutes which is a blessed relief when you come home from work all tired and in need of food - fast!

Everything is perfectly portioned out, so if the recipe calls for 1 teaspoon of something, you can bet your bottom dollar you will have EXACTLY 1 teaspoon of it! It just takes the stress and worry out of shopping for exact ingredients and not knowing what to do once you get them home. You can rest easy knowing that everything is in the box, ready to go when you are. Enjoy cooking again and hey, I’m not going to judge you if you happen to have a glass or 3 whilst you’re at it…!

Inspired by making these two recipes, I dug out my old Gousto recipe binder and re-made another of their delicious recipes, Mustard Pork With Leeks and Apple. Absolutely delicious and loved by my family whom I made it for. Just goes to prove that once you've had a box, you'll want to make the recipes again and again!

If you're inspired to try this for yourself, then I have an exclusive offer for you! A £20 discount on each of your 1st and 2nd Gousto orders on any sized box! Making your first and second boxes only £7.49 each! Use code TORNADO.  

Happy Cooking! 

Love, Sarah
