So, on a whim, I decided to try one of these services that ships you all of the ingredients that you need in order to make a dinner. I thought it would be a good way to try out some new recipes and flavors, since they only give you what you need to make that dish, instead of having to purchase, say, an entire bottle of Worchestershire sauce when you only need a teaspoon.
My first trial was the Peanut Chicken Curry. I made this last Sunday after Mass.
All of the ingredients were packaged well, clearly labeled, and fresh.
There were a few ingredients I was not familiar with. (I’m looking at you fish oil, red curry paste and gochujang!) I wasn’t sure what they would taste like, so I tasted a tiny bit of each before I used it. The fish oil was not as fishy as I expected, which was a relief. 🙂
The instruction card states that this recipe should take between 30-40 minutes. I was interested to see how long it would take me — being a fairly novice cook and not pre-prepping the food at all beyond what they packaged for me. It took me 35 minutes from start to finish.
It didn’t look *exactly* like their photo, but it was close enough. And taste? It was *amazing*! I seriously could eat this ALL THE TIME!
For my first trial of Plated, they hit it out of the park!
