Today I want to share some of my recent Blue Apron meals with you guys since I haven’t talked much about them recently. If you’ve been reading for awhile then you know that I love them so read on for an awesome experience for first-time customers!
For those of you unfamiliar with Blue Apron, it is a weekly meal delivery service. Each week you receive 2-3 meals (depending on which plan you sign up for) and all of the ingredients are included and portioned out for you. It makes planning and preparing a breeze and I love the option to skip a week like we had to do the last two weeks when we were out of town. For more information on Blue Apron, read my review here.
Short Rib Burgers on Pretzel Buns with Hoppy Cheddar Sauce & Roasted Sweet Potato Rounds
This was one of my favorites because I loved every ingredient! That included the pretzel bun which is surprising since I normally hate everything pretzel.
Baked Fontina Pasta w/ Brussels Sprouts and Sage Breadcrumbs
If you love cheese, then this one was for you. It ended up being too much for Neil and I to split and so I ate the rest for lunch for a couple days.
Pan-Seared Steaks w/ Green Peppercorn Sauce & Roasted Fingerling Potatoes
My only issue with this meal was the consistency of the greens, but that’s just because I am weirdo and don’t like my greens wilted.
Brown Butter Spaetzle w/ Celeriac, Apple & Fresh Horseradish
This was so good and now I know how to brown butter! I have been seeing so many recipes using it lately. Basically, Blue Apron makes me a magical chef.
Sumac-Roasted Sweet Potato & Farro Salad w/ Pickled Onions & Hazelnuts
This was actually a meal from my sister’s Blue Apron shipment that she recreated when we were visiting. Along with the recipes you get on a weekly basis, you also have full access to all of their recipes online.
Spring Bucatini Pasta w/ Pea Tips, Asparagus & Mint
Recently we have started getting more Spring options like this one. So far I’m enjoying them!
Pork & Tomatillo Pozole w/ Hominy, Avocao & Radishes
Since the weather has been cool here in Chicago, this was a great dinner the other night. It was like a warm stew and the roasted pepitas were my favorite part!
Pulled Chicken Mole Quesadillas w/ Monterey Jack Cheese & Shredded Cabbage Salad
This was Monday night’s dinner and I was exceptionally pleased with my quesadilla making skills. I was also terrified to make the sauce since it uses chocolate, but it was actually really good! I’m telling you, soon I will rule the world with my cooking prowess.
