HelloFresh’s Top Recipes to Try

 

Creamy Mushroom & Truffle Fettuccine

 

 

This comforting dish pairs meaty mushrooms and slightly sweet truffle oil with a simple but stellar sauce. The peppery salad leaves, sweet pear and sharp Parmesan are perfect for balancing out the richness of the dish.

 

Beef Chow Mein

 

 

Chow Mein has become the runaway success dish of the Chinese takeaway restaurant worldwide. Fresh zingy veggies are studded through this meal – and it’s absolutely packed with flavour (and no MSG in sight). Perfect for a midweek pick me up.

 

Cheesy Black Bean Loaded Nachos

 

 

Grab the sour cream, and those crunchy corn chips, and don’t forget the all-important salsa with tomato and coriander - we’re going to need it to build the best nachos imaginable. Black beans cooked in our Mexican fiesta spice is a must-have to bring everything together.

 

Quick Sweet Chilli Pork Bowl

 

 

 The 'secret' to its deliciousness is the addition of oyster sauce, which adds an umami-rich depth of flavour to the sweet chilli.
