Gousto Reveiw - What I Thought Of The Meals + Discount Code!

Hey beaut's!

I absolutely love getting in the kitchen and cooking up a storm, you'll probably know this by  my frequent baking posts, but sharing my meals is something I've yet to do on my blog and seeing as I've been testing out Gousto recently - a recipe/meals subscription service - I thought I'd let you know how I've been getting on! 
Gousto* recipe boxes contain all the ingredients you need to make up to four different meals for either two or four people. How it works is you simply scroll through the Gousto menu on the website - which has over 30 recipes and changes weekly - and you pick out which meals you'd like to make/try for that week, theres everything from 10 minute meals, healthy options, vegetarian and plant-based meals and world foods so everyone is catered for. When the box arrives it's divided into two with all the vegetables on one side and all of the meat on the other, the meat and fridge ingredients actually come in a bag with lots of ice packs and my ice packs where actually still frozen which I was super impressed by, all of my fridge ingredients where all really cold like I had just taken them out of the fridge! All of the ingredients you need for the meals are all measured out to the exact amount you need so theres no waste or faffing about and the handy recipe cards have step-by-step instructions which are so easy to follow, so even if your not that good in the kitchen or still learning if you've just moved out of your parents house it's literally a doddle!
The four meals I made are.....
Chicken Teriyaki With Sugar Snap Peas - This one was super easy to make and only took 25 minutes in total which isn't too bad for a delicious home cooked meal made completely from scratch! The chicken was full of flavour and I couldn't believe how easy it was to make the teriyaki sauce! The sugar snap peas where so fresh and had a lovely crunch to them and combined with the basmati rice, it was lush!
Classic Cottage Pie With Broccoli - This recipe had a few more steps than the Chicken Teriyaki and also took around 40 minutes to make but it was by far my favourite dish, I've honestly never tasted such a yummy cottage pie in my life, it was even better than what my mum used to make me when I lived at home - sorry mum lol! The portion was completely spot on too, I used two mini individual dishes for me and my boyfriend and every last bit of the beef mixture and the mash went into each dish without any waste, I would highly recommend this one if your trying Gousto out, I'm definitely going to make the recipe again!
Roasted Red Pepper Linguine With Tenderstem Broccoli - Another close favourite of mine was this linguine dish, I love pasta that's why opted for this one and wow it was incredible and again full of flavour! To make the sauce I literally had to roast the Romano pepper, tomato and garlic then blitz it up with the spices and stock and wow, it tasted so good, this was a huge hit with my boyfriend too!
Greek Lamb Pastitsio Bake With Rocket Salad - This was my final dish and extremely different for me because even though I'm partial to a pasta bake I never ever use lamb, in fact I never really eat lamb at all but that's why I wanted to try this recipe because I wanted to try something different! Truth be told this was lush and I loved the addiction of having a rocket salad with it too because again I never serve salad with my pasta bakes at home.  
I found the whole process of using Gousto really easy and the meals didn't disappoint, we enjoyed everything, found the portion sizes perfect and I really liked the fact that everything was made completely from scratch because I knew exactly what was going into my meals and sauces! I'm definitely going to be using Gousto again for sure, the menu this week looks pretty epic to be honest so another cheeky order could be coming soon he he!
