I genuinely really like this recipe and the special spin that
you’ve placed on it. Very smart. I’m gonna be preparing
this for my husband in a few days and I’ll let you
know on how I get on. Many thanks for the brilliant suggestion!

Sounds like an amazing plan!

Beverly Leach says:

YUM. Can you bag these up and put in my mail?

Jacqueline Parisi says:

We wish!! Unfortunately, these appetizers won’t be in the HelloFresh box, but there’s a whole lot of deliciousness on deck for the next few weeks, so we can’t complain 🙂

Alfonso says:

Hi there,

Can I get the recipe of Hummus Cucumber Toast, seems is not listed on the Blog.

Regards,
Alfonso

Jacqueline Parisi says:

Hi Alfonso – for that one, simply toast slices of sourdough (or your favorite bread) and spread on some hummus. Feel free to opt for the store-bought kind or make your own. From there, simply top with raisins and walnuts (can be toasted or raw). It’s as easy as that! Hope this helps.

Anastasia K says:

I’ve been making Avocado Salsa for a while now. It was born out of necessity on one occasion when i did not have enough avocados to make guacamole! It’s a family favorite bit i add jalapenos for a nice kick!

Jordan Schultz says:

Love it! That’s called resourcefulness. Love it!

Could I please have the fall harvest spice recipe? I loved that seasoning in the HelloFresh mummy chicken roast dish.

Jordan Schultz says:

Hi Lea! Our kitchen team at thekitchen@hellofresh.com may be able to assist in providing the ingredients.

-Jordan from the community team

Hi, I am your customer. My son really loves the chicken mummy roast with the cranberry sage stuffing. He is allergic to dairy, so he can’t eat the normal stuffing. When I cooked this meal, he really loved the stuffing. I want to cook it for him this Thanksgiving, but I don’t know how to prepare the fall harvest spice blend. Could you show me how to mix the spice or where I can purchase it? Thank you!

Jordan Schultz says:

Hi Shuhui! Our kitchen team at thekitchen@hellofresh.com may be able to assist in providing the ingredients and proportions.

Thank you so much Jacquelin! I’m so excited to make this for our Thanksgiving dinner! Our table is going to look very different this year filled with all our Favorite Hello Fresh Sides!

Would love to have the recipe for the Italian Seasoning Blend. We make the egg-in-a-hole BLT all the time and just can’t get the seasoning quite as good as yours.
Thanks!

Stay tuned!

Kristen says:

My family LOVED the Chicken & Pesto dinner from this week’s order. Could you please share the recipe for the Tuscan Heat Spice blend? Also, could you share the recipe for the Thai blend from the pork meatballs and noodles from October or November? These two dishes need to be in our regular rotation.

Rebecca Lewis MS RDN says:

Hi Kristen – so glad to hear you and your family are enjoying the meals! For any spice blends, you can reach out directly to the chefs who create the blends at: thekitchen@hellofresh.com

Jessica says:

Would you please share your Tuscan heat spice blend that’s used for the tuscan sausage and pepper spaghetti? Also the Mexican Spice blend for the Pork & Poblano style tacos? I’ve tried using what is listed on the outside of the packets to get a base recipe, but haven’t been able to get the spice proportions correct in the blend. Thank you!

Jacqueline Parisi says:

Jessica – of course!

Tuscan heat spice blend:
-4 parts dried basil
-2 parts dried rosemary
-2 parts dried oregano
-2 parts garlic powder
-1 part cayenne pepper
-1 part ground fennel

Mexican spice blend:
-2 parts chili powder
-1 part oregano
-1 part smoked paprika

Thank you so much!

angela says:

What chili powder is it? I love the hello fresh Southwest Blend!

Jacqueline Parisi says:

Hi Angela – the Southwest blend is made with 2 parts garlic, 1 part cumin, and 1 part chili powder!

N Bush says:

Enjoyed the DIY spice blends video. Is it available so that proportions to mix the spices is available in printable form?
Also, I have been unable to find Za’atar seasoning that comes close to the unsalted one furnished in an HelloFresh recipe. Penzey’s is OK but lacks the punch of the HelloFresh one plus it contains salt.

Jordan Schultz says:

Hi there– If you email our chefs at thekitchen@hellofresh.com, we may be able to help out.

Bec says:

AnnaLee says:

Yes, please! I’d love to know the Italian seasoning blend as well!

I would even be happy to just purchase some of the spice mixes, or things like fig preserves or balsamic glaze. I noticed previous post saying stay tuned…..any new word ??

Jacqueline Parisi says:
