Gousto Portion Sizes: what to expect

Considering signing up for a meal kit delivery service but wanting to know more about the Gousto portion sizes before you commit? I’ve got you! I’ve included below photographs of a single portion of various cooked Gousto meals served on a standard-size dinner plate. I’ve also added a small amount of commentary about what I thought about each meal, if that’s helpful at all. You may also find my Gousto vs Hello Fresh: Which is Better? article helpful if you are new to delivery meal kits.

I have presented the below images without comment as one person’s “wow, what a huge portion!” is another person’s “is that all?!”. I intend to keep adding to this each time I make a new Gousto recipe.

This tasted much nicer than it looked. The sushi rice made a nice change from my usual basmati rice – will definitely be buying sushi rice at the supermarket in the future. The cashews were incredible.

Nice but pretty basic. The best thing about this recipe was learning about adding mayonnaise to the chicken juices to make a yummy drizzle.
