HelloFresh Canada Review: BBQ Ranch Burger
HelloFresh Canada delivers fresh ingredients and healthy, chef-curated recipes based on seasonal farm fresh ingredients straight to your doorstep each week. Every week HelloFresh members choose three meals from a selection of award-winning, constantly-changing recipes (say goodbye to recipe boredom!). They kindly sent us this box for review.
HelloFresh Canada is at the top of my list when it comes to meal delivery boxes. One of the things that makes them stand out from the rest is the fact that each week they offer one recipe featuring Beyond Meat. They are one of the only Canadian food boxes that has Beyond Meat on their menu….that I know of.
They offer a great selection of recipes each week and you can skip a delivery anytime you like. Typically we order one box per month and usually opt for the veggie recipes.
Something I thought worth mentioning, and something I never noticed before, is the fact that each meal has a best before date. This is extremely helpful because it helps me decided what meal to make first. Beyond Meat has a short timeframe in which to be used so I decided to make the BBQ Ranch Burgers first.
HelloFresh Canada has three meal plans to choose from. Each week you can curate your personal menu and choose from 25 delicious recipes.

Here’s a closer look at one of the recipes from this week’s HelloFresh Canada delivery…..
BBQ Ranch Burger with Beyond Meat® and Fries
You won’t believe it’s not meat! Our creation for dinner tonight is the Beyond Meat BBQ Burger. Crispy shallots, smoky BBQ sauce, flavourful buns and perfectly packed veggie patties. Enjoy each bite of this beyond meat burger, perfect for all seasons!
- 2 unit Beyond Meat®
- 2 unit Artisan Bun
- ¼ cup BBQ Sauce
- 28 g Crispy Shallots
- 56 g Spring Mix
- 3 tbsp Sour Cream
- 7 g Chives
- 320 g Yellow Potato
- 2 tbsp Mayonnaise
- 1 tbsp White Wine Vinegar
- 3 g Garlic
- 90 mL Dill Pickle, slice
1: Before starting, preheat the oven to 450°F and wash and dry all produce. Cut potatoes into 1/2-inch matchstick fries. Toss potatoes with 1 tbsp oil, on a parchment-lined baking sheet (for 4 ppl, use 2 parchment-lined baking sheets, with 1 tbsp oil per sheet, and rotate sheets halfway through cooking). Season with salt and pepper. Roast in middle of oven, flipping halfway through cooking, until golden-brown, 25-28 min.
2: While potatoes roast, finely chop chives. Peel, then mince or grate garlic.
3: Add mayo, sour cream, chives, vinegar, 1/4 tsp garlic and 1/2 tsp sugar (dbl both for 4 ppl) in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Stir to combine. Set aside.
4: Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1 tsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl) then Beyond Meat® patties. Pan-fry, until golden-brown, 3-4 min per side.**
5: Transfer patties to one half of another baking sheet. Spoon over BBQ sauce. Halve buns and arrange them cut-side up on the other side of the baking sheet. Toast buns and patties, in middle of oven, until golden-brown, 4-5 min.
6: Spread 1 tbsp ranch on top buns. Top each bottom bun with pickles, Beyond Meat® patties, spring mix, crispy shallots and top bun. Divide burgers and fries between plates. Serve remaining ranch on the side, for dipping.
BBQ Ranch Burger – Final Thoughts
The first recipe from our weekly HelloFresh Canada delivery was a complete success. I’ve been wanting to try a Beyond Meat burger since I first discovered the product. They’ve had a similar recipe on the menu before but I missed out on ordering it. Overall we loved the meal. The burgers were easy to make and all the ingredients were fresh and tasty. It was the perfect meal now that the weather has warmed up as it makes me think of Summer BBQs. If they offer this recipe on the menu again I would definitely order it for a second time.
