It should be pretty apparent that I am in love with this subscription. This is already my fourth delivery and I only found out about Chef’s Plate just over a month ago. This new subscription service is saving me money on my grocery bill, and it’s forcing me to try new cooking techniques. It’s my new favourite!

All-Bran and Almond Crusted Fish

With the help of All-Bran, we’ve discovered a uniquely delicious way to crust fish! Finished with a savoury almond and caper topping, the fish takes on a toasted nutty flavour. Served over whole wheat couscous with sautéed brussels sprouts, we’re inviting you to think outside the box. 

I mostly ordered this dish because of the brussel sprouts, I love them! It’s not vegan friendly, but I started incorporating fish into my diet about a year ago. I will eat it from time to time, mostly for the protein and healthy fat. I’ve mentioned it before, but I struggle with getting enough fat in my diet, and my body really needs it.

Thai Crunch Salad

Crisp and light, this spicy Thai salad is back by popular demand! Each ingredient makes a textural contribution – the purple carrots are shaved into curly tendrils, the snap peas are blanched for a refreshing bite while the won ton noodles provide a crunch. Cooling sour cream is juxtaposed with spicy green curry paste for a surprising and exotic dressing. 

I crave salads, it’s true. Sometimes I just really need them in my life, well most of the time. And, I kind of wanted a recipe that would be quick and easy. I’m really limited on time right now. So this one fit the bill. I will probably make my own version of the dressing with vegan sour cream, but other than that everything looks amazing.

Chef’s Plate Review September – Final Thoughts

If you live in Canada, you MUST check this subscription service out. Chef’s Plate is probably my favourite subscription box discovery of the year. It forces me to take time out of my busy schedule twice a week to pour myself a glass of wine and test out new cooking techniques. So far I have done pita pizzas, stuffed peppers, and handmade ravioli. I probably never would have tried recipes like this on my own. Not to mention the fact that I am saving money and reducing my food waste. Seriously, it is amazing!
