Blue Apron did send me one of their boxes to try out in return to share my honest opinion about with you all! All thoughts below are 100% my own. Lately I have been in such a rut, when it comes to cooking supper. I am so tired of the normal dinner meals I make, but don’t fully know what exactly to make in replace! I really enjoy cooking and trying out new recipes! So I came across the site, Blue Apron. This is a site I think anyone who cooks would be interested in!
You can join Blue Apron, and they will deliver a box full of food and recipes to create the perfect meal! You can choose your dietary preference, and if you need to skip a week, that is fine. All the plans are no commitment. I was so excited when my box arrived, it was packed so nice with the produce, meats, seasonings and more needed for each meal.
- Complete meals with 500-700 calories per serving
- 35 minutes to prepare on average
- Pre-portioned ingredients to save time and reduce waste
- Easy to follow beautifully printed recipe cards
Our box had three different recipes to create. All of these recipes are something we have never tried before! That was so nice, we could try out new recipes, and all the ingredients were shipped right to us. No running to the store to grab ingredients, Blue Apron sends it all!!!
Recipes with Ingredients that came on our box:3-Chile Beef Chili Roasted Chicken with Jalapeno-Herb Salsa, Mixed Citrus & Cracked Wheat Berries Whole Wheat Spaghetti & Zucchini with Pistachio-Spinach Pesto
The first meal we decided to try was the Whole Wheat Spaghetti & Zucchini with Pistachio-Spinach Pesto! I love the recipe card, it shows you what ingredients you need, so I went and grabbed all the Blue Apron ingredients they sent and started cutting my produce up, and following the steps! This is a recipe I wouldn’t have picked out for us. I have never had pesto, and wasn’t sure if I would like it or not. I was so surprised once I started cooking how amazing all the ingredients came together, I found myself thinking this could really taste great!
This turned out SO good! The flavors just complimented each other so nice. I loved the zucchini with the onion and garlic, it really tasted so good. The pesto made this a home run recipe, the lemon really just added the sass! This is a recipe I will for sure be making in the future, we loved it! I am so glad I got this recipe to try in my Blue Apron Box, this is something I generally wouldn’t think we would like, but I was so impressed at how much we did like it, and the ease of the recipe to make!
The Roasted Chicken with Jalapeno-Herb Salsa, Mixed Citrus & Cracked Wheat Berries, was really good as well. I have never tried a salsa quite like that, and the wheat berries were something really new as well! I didn’t even know they existed until this recipe! The flavors really were delicious together!
In our home we enjoy chili, so it was fun to try a completely different take on chili. This 3-Chile Beef Chili did have a good kick to it! Those roasted peppers were a really neat twist. I had never cooked with a Cubanelle or Serrano Pepper before. The pepper jack cheese topping was a really nice touch to this!!
Overall I was beyond impressed with our Blue Apron box! All the recipes turned out so well, and they really were pretty easy to whip up! The quality of the produce, meats, and other ingredients in the box were exceptional! Everything was super fresh, and it was so nice getting all the items shipped directly to our door, so no running to the store to pick up stuff for dinner!
