Lacking inspiration in the kitchen or need a helping hand to find that perfect recipe? HelloFresh have come up with their new HelloFresh FLAVOUR GENERATOR. It’s like a giant lottery wheel for your taste buds. You enter your favourite cuisine; Indian, Mexican, British, Italian or Middle Eastern food and then select your favourite flavour; Spicy, Sweet, Tangy, Herby or I’ve Never Tried. Pull that handle, off it spins and out pops a new recipe to dazzle your taste buds.
I opted for Middle Eastern and Spicy (obviously) & the flavour generator suggested I try Zahtar Salmon with Fragrant Rice and Spinach. It gave me a list of ingredients to shop for with the required quantities. It told me the nutritional information per serving and even went and far as to tell me the utensils that I would need to make the dish and recipes with similar flavour combinations that I might also enjoy. Not a bad start.
To find a new recipe I usually browse Pinterest or a few of my favourite healthy food and recipe blogs, but I will definitely be giving this favour generator another go. I love how it returns me something completely random and probably something that I wouldn’t usually land on myself. Regardless of what mood you are in and what food you want, when you search for a recipe yourself you will always naturally tend towards things that are similar to what you have had before. I have never had zahtar before (despite having a tub of it in the house which I don’t think have seen in over three years) and I love that HelloFresh managed to introduce me to something new.
But what I was really impressed with was how healthy the meal was. Strip everything else away and what was left on my plate was rice, salmon and a whole lot of greenery. You can’t go wrong.
Spin the wheel and see what flavours HelloFresh can introduce you to.
