How to Make 9 Delicious Meals Using a Single Misfits Market Box

It’s one thing to build your box full of delicious produce, meats, and pantry staples each week, but it’s quite another to find the inspiration to cook everything up. Especially when you’re kicking off new fall routines that don’t leave much time for creativity in the kitchen. That’s precisely why we’re launching our new meal planning series to help you maximize each Misfits Market order and minimize food waste at home. Each month, we’ll share a week’s worth of affordable meals that you can make from a single box (along with cooking essentials you likely already have in your pantry). We’ll even give you tips and tricks for building the best boxes that fit your tastes and lifestyle.

Sound daunting? No problem. We went ahead and did the stressful part for you: planning the menu and putting together the shopping list. All you need to do now is follow the below to build your Misfits Market box, pick up a few extra items, and get cooking.

Here’s how you should build your box for a week of meals in September:

And from this? Nine drool-worthy dinners and lunches for two:

  1. Monday’s Dinner: Vermicelli Noodle Salad with Shrimp
  2. Tuesday’s Lunch: Shrimp Rolls with Peanut Sauce
  3. Tuesday’s Dinner: Skillet BBQ Chicken
  4. Wednesday’s Lunch: Citrus Chicken Salad
  5. Wednesday’s Dinner: Chipotle Cauliflower Tacos
  6. Thursday’s Lunch: Cauliflower Burrito Bowls
  7. Thursday’s Dinner: Coconut Curry with Veggies
  8. Friday’s Lunch: Coconut Curry Noodle Soup
  9. Friday’s Dinner: Roasted Squash with Chickpeas

Is there a phone number I can call to get in on your program? The meals and produce looks so good. We are not having the best of luck when purchasing meat or produce. I am tired of spending good money on things that go bad in a 24hr period. Your website makes your produce look so pretty. Please share how to get some of your goodies.

Hi, Tina! Thank you so much for your interest!

It do want to remind you that this produce while beautiful and yumm for the most part, they are misfits. And must be used or frozen within a few days.

Hi support team… how can I view the produce, meats, etc.? I would love to view with out putting my credit information. Is there anyway of doing that ? Thank you.

Hi there! Thanks so much for your interest in our Meal Plan. Happy to share that most of these recipes are designed to be flexible enough that they can be modified to fit your dietary needs and preferences with a few easy swaps: you can leave the meat protein out, or swap in your favorite plant-based protein! We also appreciate the feedback in general that you’d like to see more vegan and plant-based recipes in the future, and will share with our team! Thanks again.

Thanks for doing this! I’ve been experimenting with order veggies which I’m unfamiliar with and this will help expand my cooking horizons.

Love this company! From the very beginning till now. Conceptually fantastic and keeps getting better!

We love you too, Deborah! 🥰 We truly appreciate your kind words and continued support. Thank you for being such a valued member of our community! 💕

This is an Excellent Idea! I’m sure to utilize when I begin placing orders next month. Thank you!

Hi, A! Thank you for your interest! By joining Misfits Market, your free membership unlocks access to hundreds of high-quality groceries up to 40% less than you would find at traditional grocery stores. We work closely with farmers and food makers to rescue products in real time, and we pass along these deals to our members so you can enjoy savings on our sustainably sourced pantry staples, signature organic produce, and meat, seafood, and plant-based proteins so you can cross more off your grocery list and save trips to the store. Just meet our order minimum of $30 and you’re good to go: our flat shipping fee of $5.50 per order stays the same regardless of how much you spend!

We partner with hand-picked farms and food hubs across the Americas and occasionally beyond, depending on seasonality (see the full list of what we’re rescuing now) to source certified-organic fresh produce for our boxes. We offer fresh organic produce (e.g., citrus and avocados) sourced outside the U.S. to give you a variety of options to complete your weekly grocery shopping. Our goal is to fight food waste wherever we see inefficiencies in the food system.
We also source cooking supplies, pantry staples, and all of the items you’d find in a grocery store in a similarly sustainable way. We work with food brands to take in excess inventory—ranging from surplus to out-of-date packaging to short-dated items. (Short-dated means goods stamped with a “best-by” date that’s fewer than 6 weeks out.)
For meats and seafood, we have strict sourcing standards and partners who are transparent about their methods to ensure that you can feel good about what goes into the production of the high-quality meats and seafood we carry. We’ve also hand-picked suppliers that have found innovative ways to minimize environmental impact by avoiding industrialized farming while still making high-quality products that are affordable.

I love this concept, but we tend to eat rather simplistic. Mainly salads, stir fried or roasted veggies, and grilled meat. Things that don’t take extra ingredients. I hope you don’t stop the way we are ordering now totally. Thank you for listening.

We appreciate your feedback, Stacie! Our service will definitely stay the same, we are just providing our customers with different ways to use up their selections and meal plan. 😊

I bought my first box . Sadly to say the peaches were not edible at all and I just made chicken cutlets that were so tough we threw them in the garbage . I’m not sure if I’ll be ordering again .

You could do a box of stuff and recipes in the box to make up meals for a week! I’d buy that in addition to pick my own box from you

That is a great idea, Beth! We will send it over to our team for future consideration. Thank you! 🥰

Hi, Dale! Great question! We’re developing more meal planning content in the future, so we’ll be sure to let our recipe creators know that you’d love to see more Keto and diabetic-friendly options. Thanks for following along!

Yes, my family s looking forward for me to prepare a meal for them, as I have not been able to gather together a meal preparation for sometime & I think I might surprise them with the box of misfits as well as instructions!

Ah! We appreciate your support, Sue. We do occasionally post recipes that can help hide some secret veggies. 😎😉

Please stop sending these messages. We got a box from misfits and it was horrible. Vegetables were picked too soon, rock hard and unfit to eat. Same with fruits. Meats were over priced. We were so disappointed when we tried to eat ur foodstuffs.

I just wanted to let you know how happy I am with my subscription 😃You’ve came a long way from when I first started ordering! You guys rock! 🤗And now this new meal planning is amazing! My husband is a little picky about some of the recipes with what he calls “funny stuff”🤣 But he loves the quality and taste of everything I’ve gotten so far! You really are a refreshing weekly box subscription, and getting better every week! Thank you for being awesome!

Aww! We love hearing this, Gwen!! 🥰 So glad you and your husband are loving the “funny stuff”. 😂🙌

I just came home and my first box was on porch ! Except for a cucumber that is mushy already and a couple pieces of fruit that are very hard ( hopefully will ripen as they sit) everything looked good! 😊 I’m impressed and the ice packs and packaging was wonderful!!!
