We’ve been getting HelloFresh every week now for at least half a year. There are many things I love about it. It’s convenient, it’s so easy the kids can cook, and they always seem to be delicious.

One of the things I struggle with is replicating the recipes where they use an unknown sauce or special seasoning blend. After doing some digging all over the internet and testing I feel like I’ve figured these out. Thankfully HelloFresh tends to publish their spice recipes on their Facebook page or Twitter pages occasionally. There is even a HelloFresh Reddit thread where I found some. 

HelloFresh Sauce Recipes

First, we will start with the only sauce recipe I’ve managed to find and think is correct. The cream sauce is used in tons of their pasta recipes.

HelloFresh Cream Sauce BaseHelloFresh Cream Sauce Recipe

  • 1-1/2oz (3 Tbsp) unsalted butter
  • 3 Tbsp unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1-3/4 cups whole milk, heated
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/8 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • Small pinch freshly grated nutmeg
  • Heat on medium until thickened, be sure to whisk. Add additional flour if you need to thicken.

This is what you use in their Oven Gold chicken Sausage Gnocchi Bake and the Chicken Sausage Rigatoni Napoletano.

Next up are the spices. I’ve managed to find tons of these so far. As I figure out more I will add them to this list. If you think any of them might be wrong send me a message. If you’ve managed to get your hands on one of the other spice recipes please leave it in the comments below.
