Singapore Noodles with Pork and (insert random leftover veges here)

pork noodles

So I was wandering in the “international” aisle at Coles, mostly just planning on getting some instant miso soup, but I got a bit distracted by some of the new products on the shelves…

singapore and hokkien noodles

And one thing was the shelf-fresh noodles, at $1.80 a packet. Bargain my dears! No wonder I rocked up some ingredients and made a thing!

Apple Marinated Pork Chops with Garden Vegetable & Quinoa Tilda Rice

possum

There is a Mumma possum and a bub sitting on the shelf in the carport. Right outside my bedroom door. I think it got too hot for them in my roof today, so they wandered out for a bit of breeze.

red apples

We gave them water, they eat the oranges off our tree, and I think I might slip them an apple before I got to bed, like the ones I used for marinading our pork chops last night.

Found a pair of pork chops in the freezer, and had some Tilda quinoa and vege rice mix to try (2 mins in the microwave!), so got marinading!

Marinating pork…. what do you use?

pork scotch fillets

Picked up some free range pork scotch fillets at Woolies, and wondered what to marinate them in. I ended up deciding on a garlic, ginger, sweet chili and soy sauce mix. It turned out wonderfully with the roast veg and a bed of baby spinach.

So excited to open my box and check out the ingredients!!

I ordered a HelloFresh box because I found a good deal online and really wanted to try it. I love the idea of things like Lite’n’Easy, but I like to cook too much to hand over my evening meal to something pre-prepared or – worse – frozen! I like a Lean Cuisine for lunch, but I can’t do them for dinner!

HelloFresh Chicken Soba Soup

The ingredients were awesome and fresh… with just the right amount for each meal! It came with the herbs and spices too…. I did have to provide oils and butter, milk, soy sauce and the white wine, but all staples I have an abundance of!

HelloFresh Chicken Soba Soup

The first meal we made was the Chicken Soba Noodle Soup. They forgot to send the chili, fortunately there’s a jar of chili in the fridge so I used a little of that. We couldn’t get through the serves, so there was lunch for us for Wednesday!! :) It was a well scripted recipe, and I loved it… though I did add a touch extra tamari to mine, but I’m a salt fiend with a cold, so that can be forgiven!

Next up was the sausages… with a surprising red onion and thyme gravy that was really tasty!

HelloFresh Toulouse Bangers and MashHelloFresh Toulouse Bangers and Mash

These guys were rather gourmet. Gluten free and sourced from Sydney.

It’s been awhile since I cooked with fresh thyme (I used the Gourmet Garden tubes a lot instead) so I was amazed at how wonderful it smelt.

The gravy was a mix of red onion, oil, thyme and white wine…. which I put a little too much in! ;)

The third meal in our three day box was a vegetarian paella. Again, not something I’ve cooked before, but had eaten a few times (always with seafood though!). This recipe was vegan, too, I can keep that in mind!

Super fresh ingredients, this one was VERY easy to make :) And delish!

So, I’d totally order this box again at full price once I have a job. I probably wouldn’t get the five day, just because I’m a bit too sporadic in my cooking for that, and like a little more flexibility. But to come home from work three weeknights, have all the ingredients there waiting for you, but still getting to prepare something with fresh Aussie ingredients? I’d say that’s worth the usual price of $64 (three meals for two people.) I understand that if you put the effort and time in, you could get the ingredients for less (though this cost breakdown on the site suggests otherwise), but not really if you want a different meal every night for just two people without wastage and too many repeated meals (only so many nights a week you can eat the same meal).
