Do you find yourself struggling for meal inspiration? Perhaps you tend to cook same things week in, week out? I think we are all guilty of that sometimes as more often than not it’s just easier and we are so busy with our daily lives.
Being a food blogger I tend to “live food”. My mind is constantly pondering next meal or recipe idea. This is what I do and love. However, there are days I’d love for somebody to simply tell me what’s for dinner. It would be even better if they could cook it for me too but that’s a different story. 😉 When lovely peeps from HelloFresh got in touch asking if I wanted to take part in their Flavour Campaign and have a play with their new Flavour Generator, I was very excited.
About Flavour Generator
The way it works, you go onto Flavour Generator and choose the cuisine you like (Indian, Mexican, British, Italian or Middle Eastern) and then the flavour, vibe of the dish you fancy (spicy, sweet, tangy, herby or something you’ve never tried). You press “Generate My Flavour” button and “One Arm Bandit” machine 😉 comes up with two key ingredients and couple of recipes for you to choose from.
I found it really fun to do and would definitely recommend it to all of you who struggle with ideas for their weekly meals or simply if you’d like to have a bit of fun. Your kids will love it too and perhaps if you involve them in decision making regarding dinner, they will be more willing to eat it. Just saying… When you follow the recipe, you might find LH symbol which refers to part of the preparation that can be done by little hands. I thought that was rather nice.
What I cooked
HelloFresh asked me to cook up one of the recipes chosen for me by Flavour Generator. After family meeting we’ve decided to go for British Cuisine and something Sweet. The recipe we got was Perfect Pork Chops with Cinnamon & Apple Chutney and Rosemary New Potatoes. Sounds good, doesn’t it?
I was particularly happy with the recipe as it was perfect for a midweek meal and something I new all of us would enjoy. The recipe itself was easy to follow and came with step by step photo instructions which can be helpful for those not very confident in the kitchen. The only thing I found slightly odd is the quantities of some ingredients described as “units” or potatoes measured in cups but you just use common sense and adjust these according to your family’s appetites. We really enjoyed this lovely meal and there were empty plates all round with big thumbs up from kids as well! Now, onto the recipe…
