5 ways to get more veg into your meals
We’re all about healthy eating at Hello Chef. But we understand that when the cravings hit – we’re talking big bowls of creamy, cheesy pasta, or indulgent fakeaway favourites – it’s a tough ask to opt for a salad or veggie bowl instead. But we have good news! Satisfy your cravings while still sneaking veg into your meals with our helpful tips and tricks. Here are 5 recipes that are available to order from our weekly meal kit that will have you hitting your 5-a-day in no time at all.
1. Turn them into fries
Fish Fingers with Carrot Fries, Peas and Garlic Aioli
Fish and chips, anyone? Try our low-carb version where we swap traditional potato chips for carrot fries. The perfect healthy swap!
2. Swap wraps for lettuce
Steak Fajitas in Lettuce Cups with Sour Cream and Cheddar
Lettuce wraps are a great alternative to traditional tortilla wraps, especially when they’re filled with rich, flavour-packed fillings – like these spicy steak fajitas!
3. Mix up your mash
Beef Bourguignon with Cauli Mash
Add a dash of butter and some parmesan to blitzed cauliflower and voila – creamy mash potato, veggie style! We love it alongside this speedy French classic.
4. Replace your rice
Crispy Seabass with Cauliflower Rice and Crackle Topping
Another vote for the humble cauliflower in this easy, low-carb rice alternative! Have you tried it for yourself yet?
5. Veg out on mac & cheese
Vegan Macaroni Cheese with Cauliflower and Kale
While mac ‘n cheese is the ultimate comfort food, this one packs in 2 of your 5 a day and is a great way to pack veg into your meals. Same indulgence, extra veggies!
