There are 5 options you can choose from for your SunBasket plan: Chef's Choice (3 seasonal dinner recipes), Vegetarian, Paleo, Gluten Free, and Rise and Shine (2 breakfasts and 2 dinners).

This is a review of the Vegetarian plan.

This week I chose: Fresh corn and black bean tacos with cotija cheese, Korean-style Hodo Soy Tofu burgers with kimchi slaw, and Summer flatbreads with herbed Greek yogurt. 


SunBasket also encourages recycling, and provided stickers this month to keep the insulation rolled when throwing into your recycling bin. 

Fresh Corn and Black Beans Tacos with Cotija Cheese


The first meal I decided to make was the fresh corn and black bean tacos with cotija cheese. Everything seemed to be pretty fresh except the avocado (you'll see the weirdness of that below) and the green onions. 


When I cut into my avocado, I noticed that I was able to cut right through the fruit - even through the seed, which is odd. When I cracked it open, the seed was completely disintegrated or something and the fruit around the skin was rotting. I was able to salvage some for my tacos though - can't have tacos without avocado!


I really enjoyed these tacos. I will say that I much prefer fresh cotija cheese, or queso fresco with my tacos, but the flavors here worked really well and I enjoyed them. 

Korean-style Hodo Soy Tofu Burgers with Kimchi Slaw


The next meal I decided to make was the Korean-style Hodo Soy Tofu burgers with kimchi slaw. I'm not usually a fan of soy burgers, so I wasn't expecting much here. This was my first time making kimchi and it's not going to be my last - it was super easy and delicious!


Here's the finished product. I ate these with some sweet potato chips. I enjoyed the flavors of this burger way more than I anticipated! The kimchi was delicious, and the tofu burger didn't have that foul taste that some can have!

Summer Flatbreads with Herbed Greek Yogurt


The last meal I made was the Summer Flatbreads with herbed Greek Yogurt. The produce for these was a little sad - several of the basil leaves were wilted, the tomatoes were on the edge of being over ripe, and the cucumber was shriveling. I plunged on though, and made the flatbreads.


I'm glad I forged ahead - these were really good. The herbed yogurt sauce was outstanding, and the flavors all worked really well together here. 

Verdict: I always enjoy my SunBasket meals, if for no reason other than the fact that it takes one decision off my plate three nights a week. They're relatively simple to make, and the flavors are usually really seasonally appropriate. I definitely enjoyed all three of my meals this month! I was a little disappointed in the freshness of the vegetables, but they were all still usable. I would recommend going through your shipment when you receive it and determining the order you're going to prepare it in based on the shape of the ingredients!

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!

And to add – it’s disappointing how few of the ingredients are actually organic.

I received the same recipes – for the first time ever my knife went through the pit of the avacado too! Weirdest thing. I thought the pizza was ok – it was supposed to be summer squash but they gave me zucchini. The flatbread was getting too crispy before the zuchini was done so I had too take it out. I also had an issue with the veggies being fresh. I have much better luck with greenchef, quality wise, I just wish they were more flexable with the choices.
