As part of each plan option, they offer three nutritious, fulfilling, and lovely meals every week.
We love the style and convenience of the Green Chef meals – everything is super fresh, pre-measured, and usually pre-peeled and pre-cut for super easy prep work and cooking process.
In each chef-crafted recipe, they combine delicious and unique sauces, dressings, and spice blends. Some of these include mint, cilantro, Mojito-style marinade, cilantro-scallion sauce, and flavorful spice blends like Mexican-style spice blend or cumin & fennel Blend, just to name a few.
Green Chef is also appealing because the dishes offered are usually not overly complicated recipes for an easy and fun cooking experience at home.

Our own taste test with Green Chef:
Thai Red Curry With Chicken – Green Chef
Thai curry is a street food favorite for many, and with this simple and healthy recipe from Green Chef, it was one of our favorite dishes as well.
What made us like this recipe even more was the ease of it. All in all, it took only 20 minutes to cook from start to finish, and included five simple cooking steps – not bad for a fast homey dinner!
The recipe involved green peppers, cabbage and carrots mix that arrived prepped, chicken breast stripes, delicious roasted red peppers, coconut milk, red curry paste with lime juice, and some roasted cashews for last touch topping. The end result was colorful and super tasty! A good dish for low carb, low-calorie, and gluten free diet followers!
What’s Inside the Green Chef Delivery Box
We were impressed with how the Green Chef box is organized, making the unpacking process easy and fast.
First, it is delivered with a big ice-pack inside the box to ensure that everything is kept cool. All the meats are packed at the bottom of the box to ensure proteins stay at the appropriate temperature.
Second, the ingredients are labeled, and most of them are pre-peeled and prepped, which avoids unnecessary preparation time. Also, each meal’s organic ingredients are packed together in a paper bag, making unpacking very easy and taking only a few seconds to store in the fridge.
With each box, you will also get detailed color-printed recipe cards with all the cooking steps.
Is The Green Chef Packaging Materials Eco-Friendly?
Green Chef is going green all the way, making sure the packaging is eco-friendly! The company is constantly looking for new ways to provide you with environmentally friendly packaging products. All packaging materials are recyclable, reusable, or compostable, except when they can’t be because it would increase food safety risks. For example, tofu, meats, and other proteins arrive vacuum-packed in plastic wrap to ensure freshness.
For example, the cardboard boxes are made of corrugated cardboard, with at least 40% recycled materials. The ClimaCell insulation is made of a plant-based insulating material certified for curbside recycling. The meal kits paper bags are made of 100% post-consumer recycled paper and can be recycled as well.

Green Chef Website and Ordering Process:
Green Chef offers a user-friendly website, but they do not have an app as the website is mobile optimized. Basically, everything you need to do regarding your subscription can be done through the website. You can register, select your plan, change your payment method and cancel your account.
Our team made some changes to their order on the website, and it was straightforward to do. You can also find all the information you need on each dish, including the list of ingredients, nutritional facts, cooking processes, and more.
The Bottom line of our Green Chef Review
