Each week Marley Spoon offers 5 different recipes for the Family Plan and 7 different recipes for the Two Person Plan. I selected 2 recipes for my family this week. A few days before my package arrived Marley sent me an email letting me know which equipment I would need for these recipes like a sheet pan, sauté pan, colander and large pot. It also let me know I would need oil, sugar, salt and pepper.
The majority of the ingredients for each recipe came in a labeled paper bag which is nice to keep things separate and organized in the refrigerator. Everything was packed very carefully and neatly.
Recipe 1: Cumin Spiced Lamb Noodles
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Calories per Serving: 650 calories per serving
Everything arrived looking so fresh and those little bottles of tamari and rice vinegar were too cute!
The prep was very easy for this dish. Slice a red onion and red chiles, boil the pappardelle pasta and brown the lamb, then set aside.
Then I sautéed the onions and chiles in some oil. The sauce was made by adding cumin, tamari and sugar.
The lamb was added back to the pan along with baby spinach which wilted very quickly.
These lamb and pappardelle noodles were topped with some freshly chopped cilantro and lime juice. We loved these noodles! The red hot chiles gave it a nice amount of heat and they had a nice sweet, salty taste. I’m definitely saving this recipe to recreate it at home on my own.
Recipe 2: Roasted Chickpeas and Tomatoes
Prep Time: 20-30 minutes
Calories per Serving: 585 calories per serving
The prep for this recipe was also easy. It definitely took longer to make this than 20-230 minutes though. I rinsed chickpeas, sliced the shallots into wedges and mined the garlic using my new garlic rocker from my Mary’s Secret Ingredients box!
Then I roasted the chickpeas and shallots in oil, cumin and coriander. After 10 minutes I added the tomatoes to the sheet pan and roasted for another 10 minutes. While everything was roasting I made stovetop garlic grits.
The finished grits were topped with the roasted vegetables and topped with cilantro, lime and a drizzle of olive oil. This was a nice vegetarian dish. I wish there had been some cheese in the grits to punch up the flavor more, but I liked this dish.
Verdict: I really enjoyed this Marley Spoon box a lot. Both recipes were tasty, easy to prepare and creative. I think two dinners for my husband and myself for $48 is a good value too. I’m looking forward to my next box and I like that I can pick and choose which weeks to purchase a box based on which recipes appeal to us and our schedules.
