We finally tried Blue Apron last spring and have been loving it ever since. We do it about once a month (although we missed a couple due to our schedule) and it's such a fun way for our family to cook together. We have loved each new recipe! I think all but one of the recipes we've used have been things that we've then wanted to start incorporating into our dinner rotation. I have to say though, the thing that amazes me the most is how incredibly FRESH all of the ingredients are. It's literally like we just got them from the Farmer's Market, but the best part is they are delivered right to our doorstep with the perfect proportions so we have exactly what we need and nothing goes to waste. (The box is refrigerated so no worries if you are not home when it arrives!) I also love that Blue Apron is working on developing a sustainable food system and uses such high quality ingredients. You can see their mission page here.
We do the family plan but they also have a two person plan as well and the nice thing is you can pick and choose what weeks you want to do it and skip all of the other ones. I have the app on my phone and it makes it so easy to plan ahead! I love checking and seeing what the options are going to be for the coming weeks.
For this round one of our meals was General Tso's Chicken with Bok Choy and Jasmine Rice and the other meal was a Fresh Mozzarella and Basil Pizza with Savoy Cabbage Salad.
Here are some of the ingredients for the first meal. I think this ties with the Spring Asparagus Calzones for my second favorite Blue Apron meal! (My absolute favorite was their Seared Chicken and Miso Udon Noodles recipe!) You can click on any of those dishes mentioned for the recipe or you can find all of the delicious Blue Apron recipes here.
The bok choy and radishes were delicious!!!!!!
The girls always think these tiny little bottles are so cute!
The radishes look so pretty!
Here is the finished meal. Now that it's winter it's dark by the time we eat so I can't really take a "pretty picture" of the finished product - but let me tell you, it was DELICIOUS!!!!!
And here are some of the ingredients for the Fresh Mozzarella and Basil Pizza. All four of us inhaled this! The dough was so delicious and it was a huge pizza! And the salad that we made with it was one of my favorites.
If you've never tried Blue Apron before we highly recommend it! All of the meals can be prepared in 40 minutes or less and contain between 500-800 calories per person. The ingredients are incredibly fresh and are sourced from quality suppliers and artisans. It is such a great way to get out of your dinner rut! They also now offering a recycling program which you can read more about here.
It's nice because there's no commitment - you can skip as many meals as you would like or cancel at any time.
And guess what??? The first 25 of our readers will get THREE FREE MEALS on their first Blue Apron order.
So head on over here to check it out!
