Meet Court: Full-time marketing manager, part-time resident office DJ, yogi, and amateur chef 😉 We asked her to try out Sun Basket while at home. Follow along and see what happened…
Like everyone else, I have been staying home and doing my best to find new ways to feel healthy and happy. It’s no secret to my friends and family that I love to cook, and I’ve been taking this opportunity to spice things up in the kitchen (pun intended). Having exhausted my old recipes, I have been eager to try new ones too. Whether It’s your first time experimenting in the kitchen, or you’re a pro chef looking for something new, Sun Basket is an extremely easy way to learn a new and delicious recipe.
I ordered my first box through Kickback and got $35 off + a $10 cashback Kickback. I don’t have any dietary restrictions so I chose recipes from the Lean and Clean category, however, they have delicious looking Paleo, Vegetarian, and Gluten-Free options. I received the box on Monday afternoon with all of my recipes for the week. The food came in a large cooler and sat outside for a while in 100 degrees Arizona heat (oops), but when I unboxed all of the ingredients they were STILL COLD! Not to mention, the packaging was easily recyclable which earned them tons of bonus points in my book.
You may be asking – What exactly is Sun Basket? Well, watch the video below to find out or scroll further down to read more!
Sun Basket is a weekly subscription-based meal delivery service that delivers fresh ingredients and recipes right to your door. I chose Sun Basket as their produce is organic, they have tons of healthy meal choices and let’s face it, the food just looked so good. I also liked that the meals are not pre-made and it gave me a chance to spend some “me time” preparing food in the kitchen. As someone who enjoys cooking, this was a perfect choice.

First on the menu was a Mediterranean Salmon with a White Bean and Artichoke Salad – here’s what happened:

1 or 2 organic shallots
⅓ cup cooked quartered artichoke hearts
1 cup cooked white beans
1 organic lemon
- 4 or 5 sprigs organic fresh flat-leaf parsley
- Sun Basket Dijon dressing base (Dijon mustard – cornichons – capers – dried dill)

Finish the Dijon dressing:

And then you are ready to serve!
The recipe was extremely user friendly and easy to follow. There was a bit more chopping than I expected, but it was nothing I couldn’t handle. The ingredients were fresh and delicious, and I devoured my bowl instantly. Sun Basket is a great choice for a fun night cooking with a friend, whipping up a fresh meal for yourself after work, or a romantic date night in with your SO. A bonus – their app is beautiful, easy to navigate, and features so many recipes I am dying to try.
