This week I chose: Orecchiette with corn, leeks, and ricotta, Tofu mole tacos with jicama, avocado, and lime, and White bean and ricotta flatbreads with basil. 

Tofu Mole Tacos with Jicama, Avocado, and Lime

SB3

The first meal I made was the tofu mole tacos with jicama, avocado, and lime. I had my doubts about putting jicama on my tacos, but I followed the rules and recipe to the tee! 

SB4

The jicama marinated in a bit of lime juice while I panfried the tofu with the mole seasoning. Then I assembled all the taco components and dug in – this was so delicious, I thought it would be my favorite meal this week..but I was wrong, because next I made the…

Orecchiette with Corn, Leeks, and Ricotta

SB5

Orecchiette with corn, leeks, and ricotta blew the tacos out of the water. This was outstanding! It was really simple to assemble too – just a bit of sautéing and boiling pasta water. It was really fast – the longest thing was the chopping, and the messiest part was trying to get the corn off the cobb!

SB6

The corn and leeks played so nicely with the dill and the ricotta, and then when you added the toasted hazelnuts and the aleppo chili it just took it over the top. This was excellent fresh, and even better cold the next day (I know, I couldn’t be bothered to warm up my lunch). 

White-Bean and Ricotta Flatbreads

SB7

The last meal I made was the white bean and ricotta flatbreads. The first thing I did was caramelize the onions, each flatbread had a full onion to caramelize, which is perfect since the onions reduce down so far after caramelizing! Then I made the white bean and ricotta topping by adding the beans, ricotta, lemon zest, garlic, and oil and mashed it together. I spread that on my flatbreads, then the caramelized onions, and then the pine nuts. 

After that, I made the vinaigrette which consisted of lemon juice, chopped basil, and oil. Then the flatbread went into the oven for about 10 minutes. After it came out, I topped it with the mixed greens and vinaigrette.  

SB8

This is the second time I’ve made this meal, and it was much better this time on the proportions. The flatbreads were smaller, which allowed for the white bean mixture to go on both flatbreads. I really enjoyed this!

Verdict: I really loved all of the meals I received this month, which is great! There’s usually at least one that isn’t my favorite, but everything tasted great and the recipes were easy to follow. The only thing I will mention is that this month it seemed like the produce wasn’t as fresh as it could have been. My avocado was over-ripe, and there were a few things that had to be used immediately so they didn’t spoil. That is definitely the exception for this box – everything is usually extremely fresh.

Bekki first discovered subscription boxes in 2014 and they quickly took over her life! (Not quite, but pretty close.) She started with POPSUGAR Must Have, then moved to Little Lace Box, Birchbox, Hamptons Lane...the rest was history. Her favorite product find is Beekman 1802 Fudge (so, so good) and her favorite boxes are Birchbox and Hamptons Lane...but she's always looking for a new subscription to try!

Cutting corn off the cob is super easy with an electric knife.

I’m glad I finally read a review because I assumed by their name and the picture on their box that it had something to do with fish (Blech). This all looks really good!

The tofu mole tacos were so good!

Hi, it looks really nice. Are the pictured meals for one person or two? Thanks!
