6 of the Best Recipe Boxes that Cater for All Dietary Requirements

If you are on a budget then recipe boxes may seem an expensive way of feeding your family. However, if you buy a lot of takeaways you might see some savings. More to the point, takeaways tend to be high in unhealthy fats, contain hidden sugars and are loaded with calories. The great thing about recipe boxes is you can cook the food in less time it takes to order and get your food delivered. Plus you can see exactly what’s going into your meal. Swapping a few takeaways might even save you money in the long run. Here are our recommendations:

HELLO FRESH

Recipe Boxes

  • £5.00 per meal
  • Free Delivery
  • Three Types of Boxes: Classic, Family, Rapid
  • Feeds: 2 – 4 people
  • Delivery Options: Weekly

Choose which type of recipe box you’d like to receive, then how many people and how many times a week you want the deliveries. Then you can choose the meals you want. There’s a huge range including British classics, world cuisine, vegetarian, low calorie and meals with dietary requirements. Each recipe comes with exact portions measured out and an easy-to-follow recipe card.

GOUSTO

Recipe Boxes

  • £2.98 – £6.25 per meal
  • Free Delivery
  • Two Types of Boxes: Two Person/Family Box
  • Feeds: Two People/Two Adults and 2-3 Children
  • Delivery Options: Weekly, Fortnightly, Monthly

There are over 20 different recipes to choose from for each box once you have picked the type of box you want to be delivered. The range includes everyday favourites, healthy choices, 10-minute meals, plant-based, dairy-free, gluten-free and all recipes come with recipe cards with information about the ingredients.

MINDFUL CHEF

Recipe Boxes

  • From £20.00 for 2 people
  • Free Delivery

Choose the main element of your box e.g. protein, fish, plant etc. then pick your recipes. And for every meal purchased Mindful Chef will donate a school meal to a child in poverty. All meals are gluten and dairy-free and you get £20 off your first two boxes.

FEAST BOX

Recipe Boxes

  • From: £5.50 per serving
  • Free Delivery

Feast Box is a good option if you want to try Asian food that you are unsure about cooking. It gives you all the right spice mixtures and instructions and teaches you how to cook proper Indian food. We did find the menu choice a little lacking, however, with only 16 recipes to choose from for two people.

Pop your postcode in the search box and you can see when they are in your area. You can make up your recipe boxes by picking from everything, meat, fish, veggie, vegan, light, foodie, simple or speedy.
