If you’re anything like me, you love effortless, uncomplicated meal planning and prep. There’s nothing better than having healthy gluten-free, vegan, vegetarian, or paleo meals already prepped and on-hand. Especially during hectic weeknights at home. Which is why I was so excited to try the new meal delivery service from Sun Baskets.

Unboxing the meals:
In terms of delivery, my Sun Basket kit arrived at my home within it’s emailed time slot. Sun Basket Also packs their meal kits quite well. My kit contained ample ice packs ensuring that each item contained remained at safe food temperatures, for up to eight hours, and each item was also packaged in compostable or recyclable containers, making this kit completely zero-waste in nature.
Within each kit, staples are divided by recipe. So you will initially be presented with your recipe and instruction card followed by your organic produce, meat products, and finally your compostable ice packs. This method of storage is repeated on each side of the kit. My kit contained both the Vietnamese Steak Stir-Fry meal and the Turkey Kebobs with carrot-snap pea hummus salad and lemon couscous.
The first meal we decided to make was the Vietnamese Steak Stir-Fry. This was super easy to prepare. To prepare this meal We started by processing our vegetables and garnish, which was then pan fried in a provided sesame oil.
While stir-frying, we cooked our jasmine. Finishing up this meal was as simple as plating, garnishing, and enjoying.
The second meal we made was the Turkey Kebobs with carrot-snap pea hummus salad and lemon couscous.
Cooking the turkey kebobs was simple. I simply chopped the mint and parsley, added it to a waiting bowl or ground turkey and breadcrumbs, combined the mixture, created balls, skewered, and friend until browned.
While the kabobs were browning I placed my couscous on to boil. I also prepped my carrot and snap pea salad, and whipped up my hummus salad sauce, and dressed my side salad.
To finish up this meal, we simply arranged our kabobs atop our couscous, added our salad, and dressed by squeezing fresh lemon over the entire plate. This was a fresh tasting meal I would gladly enjoy again!
Review of service:
Both dishes were very simple to follow and generally, most of the meal prep for each meal was finished for you as well, making the time to cook each meal under 30-miuntes each. Everyone in my family enjoyed both meals. I also loved that after eating both meals I was able to dispose of the entire meal kit in a completely zero-waste manner, and as this is the first meal kit that has allowed me to do so, it’s one I would definitely order from again.
I love the convenience of not having to meal plan and shop. I loved how tasty both Sun Basket Meals were. I’m happy that the packaging is 100% recyclable and compostable and Sun Basket offers instructions on how to recycle packaging within each kit. I was also impressed at the attention to detail Sun Basket places on ensuring that each meal is kid-friendly as well. And who doesn’t love 30-minute meals developed by award-winning San Francisco chefs delivered right to your door?
Sun Basket meals are also relatively inexpensive, in terms of meal kits. Meals cost $11.49 per person, which considering the ethical, organic sourcing of each product puts them in line with many national chain organic grocery stores in terms of pricing. While continuously purchasing meal kits may not be in line with my weekly grocery budget, I would definitely consider purchasing kits for entertaining or during the holiday season.
