Green Chef Balanced Meals Reviews

We’ve reviewed the Green Chef Balanced Living meals several times.  The recipes we chose included the Shepherd’s Pie, Pork Chops with Apricot Pan Sauce, Japanese Vegetable Fritters, Mediterranean Salmon, Tilapia with Spicy Scallion Aioli, and Sriracha-Tamari Beef BowlsGet $130 OFF >>


Green Chef offers recipes that include Keto, Paleo, Gluten-Free, Fast & Fit, Mediterranean, Vegetarian, and Vegan options.

Here’s what we thought about each Green Chef recipe.

  • Pork Chops with Apricot Glaze: This meal included an herb-seasoned stuffing packed with carrots, celery, and scallions alongside oven-roasted green beans.  The star of this dish was the apricot glaze that was made with apricot jam and a mushroom broth concentrate.  It was perfect on the pork with a hint of sweetness.

  • Shephard’s Pie.  This is a favorite in our house and we’ve ordered it from many meal kit companies.  For this Green Chef meal, the meat was mixed with carrots, peas, onions, tomato paste, and mushroom broth.  Then topped with rich and creamy mashed potatoes made with cream cheese, and then topped with mild white cheddar and chives.  This meal was warm, filling, and everything you could want in a comfort food dish.   For our family of three, we added extra peas to the 2-person meal kit and had plenty for everyone.

  • Japanese Vegetable Fritters with fluffy rice packed with edamame with a side of tamari broccoli.  The whole dish was kicked up a notch with the addition of the spicy ginger-siracha aioli.  We added more edamame to feed our family of three and enjoyed this Vegetarian meal.  The vegetable fritters could’ve used a little more flavor as they were a bit bland on their own, though.Get $130 OFF >>

  • Mediterranean Salmon with roasted grape tomatoes and thyme, couscous with feta cheese.  This dish tasted really good thanks to the premade cumin-herb vinaigrette added to the couscous along with the feta cheese.  The salmon was good, but we wish the spices came through a little more and we would also like to see a vegetable on the plate.
  • Sriracha-Tamari Beef Bowls with jasmine rice, broccoli, cabbage, and carrots, topped with peanuts and sesame seeds.  This dish was so easy to make and came together in around 25 min.  We loved the sriracha-tamari sauce but would’ve loved more of it to cover all of the veggies and rice.  The toasted sesame seeds and peanuts gave the dish a great crunch and overall this was one of our favorites!

  • Tilapia with Spicy Scallion Aioli with roasted sweet potatoes, broccoli, and bell peppers and cashews on top.  Thanks to the premade spicy ginger-lime aioli, prechopped sweet potatoes, and partially chopped broccoli and red peppers this dish was faster than I thought to make.  The sauce was the star of the dish and really helped to bring out the flavor of the fish and veggies.   Get $130 OFF >>

Green Chef Keto Meals Reviews

For our first Green Chef reviews, we selected the Keto & Paleo meals and our meal kit recipes included the Pork Tenderloin with Chive Butter, the Sesame Ginger Beef Patties, and the Mediterranean Pork Meatballs.

  • Pork Tenderloin with Chive Butter, sauteed zucchini with walnuts, and a cabbage and tomato slaw.  This dish was delicious.  My husband and son are not fans of zucchini, but really loved the spice blend and the crunch of the walnuts on top.  The slaw was super easy to make and perfect on a hot summer night.  A great tip, which was in the recipe, is to sear the pork tenderloin on the stovetop to get it nice and brown and crunchy on the outside, and then put it in the oven to cook through.

  • Sesame-Ginger Beef Patties with broccoli, red bell pepper, and cabbage stir-fry with cashews.  This dish was so tasty!  We added onion and ginger (pre-prepped in a bag) to the ground beef before cooking which added a great flavor to the patties.   But the star of the dish was the tangy sauce.  We put it all over the patties and stir-fry and could’ve eaten more.  We also added rice to the meal as three of us were eating that night.  This was much better than take-out.
  • Mediterranean Pork Meatballs with cauliflower tabbouleh with cucumber, tomato & feta cheese.  This dish was another winner and full of flavor from not one, but two sauces!  We all enjoyed the Mediterranean flavors and my son couldn’t even tell that he was eating cauliflower (he thought it was couscous).

Green Chef Reviews: Bottom Line

Green Chef brings you weekly meal kits that feature organic ingredients and deliver easy-to-follow recipes directly to your door.  Green Chef is the most sustainable meal kit.  This means that they offer sustainably sourced produce, are certified CCOF organic, and offset 100% of their carbon emissions and the plastic in every box.

We were genuinely surprised by how flavorful our meals were from Green Chef!  Our favorite thing about the Green Chef meals has to be the pre-made spice blends, sauces, and marinades.  These are a time-saver and add so much flavor to each dish.  Yum!

Every keto meal had premium proteins and a ton of hearty vegetables to ensure that we were eating well and would be full at the end.  We would highly recommend the Green Chef keto meals even if you don’t follow a keto lifestyle as they are tasty and filling.

The other meals we enjoyed were full of flavor with generous portions.  And while we really enjoyed our meals from Green Chef, we would love to be able to select meals across plans/menus as there are some weeks that we don’t like 3 recipes in a single plan.

Compared to other meal kits, Green Chef features organic ingredients in its recipes and offsets 100% of its carbon emissions.  Green Chef meals are at the higher end of the price range, depending on how many recipes you order each week, but its quality is worth it.
